Actually, it's been a good week.
1. It started with last Saturday's road trip with our friends, Wayne and Glenda. We went on a road trip and visited The Iris Farm. The Iris Farm is run by a sweet Mennonite family. When in peak seasons, there can be as many as 40,000 blooms. I took a ton of photos - the irises against the beautiful blue sky surrounded by green fields was irresistible. Here are a few of my favorites:
Field of Flowers
Wayne and Glenda
Wouldn't you love to be a kid and have this playhouse amongst the flowers?
Of course, we each bought some irises to take home and plant. Hopefully, next spring, we will have a colorful reminder of this spring afternoon road trip. Then we headed to our favorite pizza place and had our favorite, The Saluki Special.
2, Last week, I mentioned the knock-out rose bush in my yard had started to bloom. I estimated their were eight blooms on it. This week, I got to take a picture of it:
Way More Than 8!
3. This week I continued the momentum of my exercise program and made it consistent for 3 weeks now. For a non-athlete such as I, this is a good thing! I do have to admit that I'm feeling better and having a little more energy.
4. Quote of the week:
“Jesus… said,” Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how He has had mercy on you.” … ~Mark 5:19
I'm struck by the phrase "to your own people." Testifying to our friends and family is sometimes the hardest - but we're still called to do it!
5. Anticipation: I'm so looking forward to this weekend. There will be a picnic on Saturday, worship on Sunday, and a mini road trip and grilling out on Monday. Life is good!
