Friday's Fave Five - February 17, 2012

It's lovely Friday once again.  Time to recap my week:

1.  Favorite Blog Post to write:  This week flew by and I didn't post as frequently as I would have liked.  I did do a post, entitled "Truthful Tim" about my little brother.  I love to write about our life growing up in the sixties and seventies! It was a "kinder and gentler" time and sometimes I wish we all still lived in those decades!

2.  Favorite Photo:  Below is a photo of yellow roses my hubby surprised me with on Valentines Day. Instead of having the florist deliver them, he buzzed me at the door at work during my lunch hour bearing a vase of my favorite roses:

 You gotta love a guy that will drive 15 miles just to surprise his wife!

3. Favorite Meal:  This week was just home-cooked meals at home.  Last night was my favorite:  baked barbecue chicken.  It was so good!  And I'm having leftovers for lunch today.  (Too bad I can never remember to take a photo of  the finished product - I'm always too ready to dive in and eat it!)

4.  Favorite Quote:

"People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well,
neither does bathing, that's why we recommend it daily."
Zig Ziglar
I love this quote especially this week.  At Wednesday's prayer meeting, I felt fresh motivation.  I love it when God does that!  He confirmed it to me at a board meeting last night - He does have a plan for our little church, and it will come to pass!

5.  Favorite New Blog to Visit:  I have to give a shout out to my newest follower, Denise J. Hughes.  I met Denise at a couple writing challenges at The Gypsy Mama's Blog.  I've been impressed with her posts. Today she has written a fantastic post on 1 Corinthians 13.  Visit her at her blog, Denise J. Hughes:  Keeping a Slower Pace on a Simpler Path.

Please visit the lovely Susanne at her blog, Living to Tell the Story.  She is the driving force behind Friday's Fave Five, helping us to focus on the positive.

Beautiful flowers, how fun for your husband to deliver them himself!

I love home-cooked meals, I just don't always have the time to prepare them! BBQ chicken sounds great!

Faith said...

Oh I LOVE Your flowers!! I like roses and yellow ones are my absolute fave kind of rose! Yay for your husband for delivering them, too! That BBQ chicken sounds awesome....maybe i'll put that on my menu plan for next week! Sounds like you had a great week with a super quote!

Love the quote! Your hubby did a sweet thing driving your roses to you! We enjoyed our home cooked meals after my horrific Chinese take out incident this week. LOL! Have a great weekend Jerri!

Catching up after a weekend away. What gorgeous flowers and hand delivered no less. What a sweet thing for your hubby to do for you.

I can so relate about not getting to the picture taking with the meals. LOL.

Love the quote. Motivation and encouragement are definitely needful. Isn't it wonderful knowing that God does have a plan even for little congregations?
