FFF-09.14.12

Today is Friday, and time to re-cap my week.  This week has been a ho-hum kind of week with not much happening. Yet, I can always find favorites if I look hard enough.

1.  Cooler temps:  Oh, yes!  My ideal temp is 75° and it's been more like 85° mid-day, but we're getting there.

2.  Mums:  I love mums, especially the bright yellow ones.  This week, Wal-Mart had them marked down and I picked up a planter of sunny goodness for only $2.43.

3. An advocate:  our Sunday School lesson this Sunday will be about Jesus being our High Priest.  How awesome it is to realize that God provided a priest who truly knows how we feel - because He was human, too.  To top that off, He spends His time praying for us!

4.  Anticipation:  this week may have been uneventful, but I'm looking forward to coming days.  On Saturday, I'm going to a Beth Moore simulcast.  Monday will find me going with a group to Memphis to hear Hillsong. The rest of the week I have off from work and will be having a lovely staycation.

5. Quote of the week: 


A man may hide God from himself, and yet he cannot hide himself from God.
William Secker

It's comforting to know that wherever I am, He is there!

In light of this week's events in the news, I say "Maranatha!" Take heart, our Lord will come in person to take His people to be with Him - perhaps sooner than we think. I definitely believe we are living in the last days.

On my to-do list today was to buy some piny yellow mums on sale at the Home Depot. Love them.

That sounds like a really good lesson coming up.

Enjoy your staycation. The trip to see Hillsong sounds wonderful.

Ah, I see you're enjoying a tiny respite from the heat, too. Mums are pretty indeed. What a precious thought, that we have Someone on our side -- and may He come soon!
