Today, I want to carve out time for FFF first!
1. Last Saturday, was a free Saturday. (A free Saturday means no choir practice or meetings. I still have my work to do for my part-time church, but my schedule is a little more flexible.) Anyway, it was a cool windy but sunny day and we felt a little road trip was in order. We traveled to Kentucky, stopping along the way in LaCenter and having catfish at the Bluegrass Restaurant. This restaurant is a favorite of ours. We have spent Father's Day there many times, and when Jim's mom was alive, we took her a few times there for Mother's Day. She enjoyed it so much! She also liked the strawberry pie there. ;)
After our meal, we headed for Columbus-Belmont park to see the river in winter time, stopping first at Fort Jefferson Memorial Cross at the confluence.

2. Another thing that made me happy this week was to get these two pictures of my loves via Facebook:
|Our adorable little man|
|Cracks. Me. Up! (I think she is bored.)|
4. I bought the sweetest batch of Clementines this week! They. Are. So. Good.
5. Quote of the week:
"You can’t love Jesus but hate on the Church." - Whitney Capps
Whitney has written one of the best articles on the Bride of Christ I've ever read. I told her I wanted to stand and cheer when I finished it. I'm urging everyone to go here and read it!
And so ends another week on the Journey.
Hey! Before I go, I want to invite you to a new weekly link-up starting in February. I'm calling it Testimonial Tuesdays and I want to feature little praise reports of God at work. I'd love for you to share stories of answered prayer with us. It can be an answer you received, or someone you know who has experienced God working in their lives. I think testimony time in our church services are getting rare. I want everyone to know that God is interested in every single thing that goes on in our lives, and we need to give Him credit for all He has done - the little things as well as the big miracles.
So, how did your week go? Leave a comment and share! If you'd like to share your very own FFF post, visit Susanne at Living to Tell the Story.
