1. Last Saturday, I finally made myself declutter and rearrange my closet. 10 Wal-marts bags full of stuff later, I can breathe a sigh of relief. It. Is. Finished. A clean closet is a beautiful thing. Sometimes I like to go gaze upon the fruit of my labor. ;)
2. Sunday, we ate out in honor of Jim's birthday, which was Monday. My sweet hubby picked my favorite restaurant to go to since he had just been to his favorite for Father's Day.
3. My flowers are doing well in spite of record heat indexes this week. I'm really loving all these blooms!
I'm loving my vincas.
Especially the red ones.
The red vincas deserve a close-up

4. Quote of the week:
I stumbled across this post this week, even though it was written about 6 months earlier.
When you memorize Scripture, it’s like carrying your own oxygen tanks.
And then there’s Jesus: Christ’s weapon against Satan in the desert was memorized Scripture. And if you aren’t memorizing Scripture — what IS your weapon against Satan?

To read her whole post, click on the link. It is an awesome post - as hers always are - and very thought provoking and challenging. I ask you the same question: What IS your weapon against Satan?
5. Healthy lifestyle: still exercising each morning (at 5 a.m.!!!!) and lost another 3 lbs.
Thus ends another week on the Journey. If you'd like to share your highlights, link up at Susanne's blog, Living to Tell the Story.
