Well, whatever it takes to help me remember each sparkle in my day!
1. One thing that lifted my spirits - I think I already mentioned it on this week's daybook - is that gas was down to $1.99 in my region. It was still $1.99 when we got gas on Wednesday. Yay!
2. Last Saturday, Jim and I took the twins with us when we went on a drive. We ended up at McDonald's where they enjoyed slurping sweet and sour sauce off some McNuggets and munching chocolate chip cookies. They're too young really for the Play Place but we let them climb a bit on the stairs.

3. I snapped a photo of my late summer petunias this week ... they won't be around too much longer ...
4. This week, I had some meaningful (to me) posts I shared. (Is it okay to say that a highlight of your week is your own writing???) I loved 1 Peter so much when I was studying it that it brings me joy to go over it again in my post, Chosen to be Set Apart. While not a happy piece, The Gift of Peace, did lift my spirits reminding me that God is still on the throne and He will mete out justice in His timing.
5. Quote of the week:
"I’m finding it takes a lot more effort to maintain margins than it does to fill them up." Emily Freeman
I've also found out it's a lot harder to create margin when your schedule is already filled to the brim. What should be cut out? If only I had considered margin before I got involved in all these things!
And so ends another week on the Journey. What went on in your world? I'd love to know! Leave a comment, or link up your own post at Susanne's space, Living to Tell the Story.
