F.F.F. - 08.01.14

It's the start of the last month of Summer 2014!  Today's a great day to reflect on the goodness of God and the blessings of the past week.

I've a lot to do today, so I will need to keep this brief.

1.  Last Saturday, we spent about 3 hours with our youngest daughter.  We laughed, ate, and caught up with what is going on in her life.  I love my kids and anytime I see them, it's a highlight in my life.

2.  I've had a busy yet productive week. I love those!

3.  Wednesday, I was privileged to lead the bible study. It is one of the most fun things God allows me to do.  I really enjoyed the passage of scripture we covered, 1 Peter 2:1-10. Read it for yourself - you'll be encouraged!

4. Success in the kitchen:  We had fresh green beans this week (so good!), and I tried out a new recipe I pinned on Pinterest - bbq chicken pockets.  Simple and good - my favorite kind of recipe.  

5. Quote of the week:  

Pride is the devil's dragnet, in which he takes more fish than in any other, except procrastination.C. H. Spurgeon 

Ooh, that procrastination one - I have to battle that at all times!

And so ends another week on the Journey.  I hope your week was awesome.  Leave a comment, or consider linking up at Susanne's blog, Living to Tell the Story, and let us know all about it!

I think I'm going to try those BBQ chicken pockets! They look delicious! I'll definitely check out the passage from 1 Peter 2:1-10 this weekend; glad to hear the Bible study went well!

Glad you had a great week :)

I'm always battling procrastination too!

Sounds like a blessed week :)

I look forward to these times with my girls. Good talks. I think I have said before that I wish we lived closer so I could attend your bible study!
We have frozen several gallon bags of fresh green beans this summer. Mmm, they are so good!
Of course a very good quote by Spurgeon. Hope you have a blessed weekend! :)

So nice to spend time with our kids - as they get older it seems to get harder to get together, but such a blessing when we can.

Love productive weeks!

That's a convicting quote.

I so agree with you on the joy of productive weeks! Sometimes the busyness doesn't feel like accomplishment at all.

Always a good thing to have successful cooking experiments. This one sounds like a keeper for you!

Susanne said...

Totally convicted with the procrastination part of the quote. Ouch!

I love simple and good recipes too. And fresh green beens...yum. Will have to make a trip to farmer's market this weekend.

So nice that you were able to be with your daughter for a bit.

Procrastination--those things I ought to do but don't.
I will read I Peter 2:1-10 tonight.
Have a great week!

So glad you had time with your daughter. I'm sure it's a mutual highlight in her life as well! :)

Oof- pride and procrastination- and I'll throw in perfectionism as well... the 3Ps of my downfall. ;) Thankful for the daily Grace that breaks the devil's snare.
