F.F.F.-January 11, 2013

2013 is like every year - the weeks fly by!

Time to reflect on at least five good things that happened this week:

1.  Healing:  I'm recovering well from my recent bout of the flu / stomach virus, or whatever it was.  God made our bodies to be an amazing thing - it will heal if you give it time.  Of course, I've been babying myself by staying in at night and getting extra sleep. I'm thankful for the return of energy.

2.  New Equipment:  the church voted to get a new copier.  I'm so excited because there will be no more toner dust flying around this office!

3.  I like this time of year because it is a good time to organize.  I'm finally at a point at the office where some serious organizing can be done.  It does my secretary's heart good to order new supplies and set up new file systems!

4.  I'm excited about blogging in 2013.  I now feel I have direction on what I would like to accomplish this year.  I will be writing on the subject "fearless." I hope many of you will join me as we examine this subject.

5.  Quote of the week:

It’s not the chains that hold you is your mind!
… seen on twitter

I think this quote goes along well with being fearless because it is our mind that tells us of all the ways we could fail ... 

How did your week go?  Why not link up at Susanne's blog, Living to Tell the Story, and tell us all about it!

I'm so glad you are feeling better!! Our boys are almost healed from a cold, praise God!

I love to organize and de-clutter our home.

Great quote! Have a wonderful weekend!!

Glad to hear you're healing. I know what you mean about the desire to organize in January. I've got the bug, too. It'll be interesting to see if I follow through...

Have a great week!

Fearless is a great topic to blog on. I look forward to seeing where this topic takes you and us readers.

I am organizing and decluttering too. I have along way to go, but hopefully the several hours I did today will encourage e to keep om.

So glad you are feeling better, Jerralea.

Lovely Friday five! I'm so glad to hear you are getting well!! That is a great feeling, after being sick, to finally get energy and a feeling of wellness back.

Oh I agree it is a great time to organize- new year, fresh start to get organized and clean things out. A good feeling for sure.

Have a blessed evening :)

Glad you're feeling better! It's so important to rest while healing.

Hurray for the new copier!

I am hoping to get some organizational things done around the house.

Our mind does get in the way of success and moving ahead, in my case, a lot. I guess that's why the bible talks about our thought life so much.

Funny how the organizing bug hits in January. Hope you continue to feel better and are back 100%.

Please do baby yourself as you continue recovery from the flu. It is a wicked one by all accounts!

Fearless. Oh, I am trying! It feels so good to move from fear to trusting that God has it all in hand.

Fearless--great word for the year.
You'll be fearless in organizing and decluttering :) And fearless in facing those flu germs.
