1. First and foremost, Thursday was our oldest daughter's birthday. It's a joyous day for us because we had waited to be parents for so long. Sometimes, dreams are sweeter when you have to wait. Anyway, it was a good day when, once again, all the girls and the grands were there to spend time together .

2. Of course, I enjoyed having Monday off and celebrating Memorial Day. Probably like everyone else, we did grill out and enjoyed our food. We also included, the day before, a trip to our parents' graves to set out flowers. The graveyard where our family rests is on such a pretty shady hill!
I do not have any family who gave their lives for our county (as far as I know) but have had some uncles, cousins, and of course, my son-in-law, serve in the military. We could not exist as a country without their service. I am proud of them and thank them for their sacrifice.
3. Although my work week was shortened, things went well and I was able to finish strong! I thank God for the ability to work and do my job.
4. Wednesday was my turn to lead the midweek service. I had prepared notes for 2 Peter 2. I told my hubby that my lesson was not a fun exciting one and I hoped I had enough material. The subject was on false teachers. God was with me and the discussion went well and actually we only covered half of chapter 2. I love when I have comments and participation in the lesson.
5. Quote of the week:
"Instead of giving someone a piece of your mind, it turns out far better if you give them a piece of your heart."

And so ends another week on the Journey that went by like a landscape passed by a racing car. Stopping to reflect helps, a little, to sharpen our focus on the blessings in our days.
How did your week go? I'd be honored if you would leave a comment and share, or you could link up your own Friday's Faves post at Susanne's space, Living to Tell the Story."
