Today is one of those days where the to-do list is jam-packed. I considered skipping the Friday's Fave this week, but decided to share - quickly - with you the highlights of the week that includes an answer to prayer.
1. Last Saturday, we took a quick spin into the countryside and visited an azalea farm. We heard of this at the end of the season and went to check it out. All I can say is that next year we will be sure to go in the first part of April to see all the wondrous beauty.
2. Answered prayer: our expensive zero-turn mower quit and the hubs was quite distressed. He was sure it was going to cost $600 - $900 to get it going. (He always looks at things as worst case scenario.) Also, we didn't really know who to get to work on it. We prayed about it and mulled it over a couple days when a person's name popped into Jim's mind. He called him and long story short, the mower was picked up, fixed and brought back. Cost? $60! Thank you, Jesus!
3. New PC at work - finally gave up XP and got Windows 8.
4. Grilled hot dogs - first of the season Thursday night. (I know, we're slow.) Yum.
5. Quote of the week:
"Don’t be afraid, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom." (Luke 12:32 WEB)
"As Jesus says ... we are His little flock. Little lambs can't protect themselves, they can't provide for themselves, they can't manage the cares of daily life. All they can do is live a life close to their shepherd. It is so comforting to know that Jesus is our Great Shepherd and we have no need under His watchful eye." ... Barry Adams
I enjoyed this devotional so much. You can read the whole thing here.
Bonus: Today is our son-in-law's birthday. We so wish he was back home to celebrate. We are proud of him and his service to our country.
And so ends another week on the Journey. How did your week go? Please share in the comments, or consider linking your own post to Susanne's blog, Living to Tell the Story.
