1. The FFF group of bloggers are my favorite of every blogging community I've participated in. They are loyal and faithful commenters, and very upbeat and positive. The FFF crew always come and visit YOUR blog to comment. So, this week YOU are my first favorite.
2. Thankful for electricity. Yesterday afternoon, a mini ice storm hit our area. I left work at noon to get home before the roads became dangerous. I'm thankful to report that though the power did go out, it was only from 1 a.m. - 4:30 a.m. My heart always goes out to those who are without power for long periods of time when storms strike!
3. Working Ahead: I love times when not only am I caught up at work, but I'm actually working ahead. It makes me feel so efficient! It's also very useful when sickness or those pesky ice storms interrupt one's schedule.
4. My pastor has started preaching a series on prayer based on the book by Dick Eastman, "The Hour That Changes The World." I'm very excited about this series and I think it will revolutionize my prayer life like S.O.A.P. has done for my bible study. Eastman's premise is that you can spend 5 minutes on each of 12 steps of prayer and you will have spent an hour in prayer. I've found that you can get this book on Kindle. I was going to purchase it last night, but the internet was down.... but I will definitely get it this weekend. (By the way, I'll be getting this book for free since I'll be paying for it with my Swagbucks.)
5. Quote of the week:
"Sadly, too many Christians are strangers to the wondrous side of prayer: expectation!" AW Tozer
… seen on twitter
Since my focus right now is on prayer, I thought I'd share this wonderful quote from Tozer with you. Let us all pray with expectation!
