Weekly Wrap-Up and FFF

If you are like me, the ending of the week is jam-packed with finishing up our to-do lists.  I want to quickly dash off a post joining my Friday's Fave Five buddies on highlighting 5 favorites of the week.

It keeps us thankful!

1. Another answer to prayer:  a young lady our church has been praying for received great news this week!  She has all kinds of pancreas issues and doctors were all but certain she had a rare pancreatic cancer. Tests this week show ... NO CANCER! Praise God. 

She still has pancreatitis and also spiritual issues as well; but, I can't help but feel that God has something wonderful in store for her.

Answered prayer is so encouraging!

2. I had such a wonderful time teaching Sunday School last week. Some lessons just speak to me more and are easier to teach than others. Last week, we studied the Spiritual Armor God has provided for us (see Ephesians 6:10-18). I've taught this many times over the years, but still get excited every time I go over it.

3. No pics today, but my grandchildren have perfected the art of making me laugh out loud. They were hilarious last night and had us giggling crazily. Nothing like laughter to make life fun!

4.  I've really enjoyed writing some of my latest blogging posts, and I'm excited, because yesterday, the theme for the next A-Z blogging challenge came to me. Can't tell you yet, I'm waiting for the big reveal on March 21st. I was getting worried because I was having no inspiration ...

Don't I know by now, I should never worry?

5. Quote of the week:

God snuck down one dark night as a baby  – arriving while everyone was looking the other way.” Emily P. Freeman

[My thought … what else has He been up to while we are not noticing?]

And so ends another week on the Journey. What did your week look like? I'd love to know! Leave a comment, or link up at Susanne's space, Living to Tell the Story.

Plans for the weekend:

  • Line-ups
  • PowerPoints
  • Teaching on 1st and 3rd chapters of Corinthians
  • Hoping for a quick drive in the sun - it is supposed to be 60°
  • I'd love to make a Spring banner ... we will see if it happens
  • I'd also like to rearrange my pots and pans cabinet.
I know I will do the first 3 ... here's hoping I can at least do one of the last three ...

What a wonderful answer to prayer! My grandson does the same for me - they are just so funny without even realizing it. This is such a precious time in their lives.

Great answer to prayer, indeed!! Glad you got an inspiration on what to do for A/Z :) I was going strong with it, now have to try to wrap it all up in the next week or two before we move :)

It's always good when prayers are answered but that's very special. Nice list. Enjoy your weekend.

Michele Morin said...

Wow, an A-Z blogging challenge! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

Faith said...

answered prayer is always a fave around here!!

if the temps get to 60 I certainly wont be driving anywhere!!! I will be power walking or getting my bike out into that sun!😀 Mountains around here are still too icy for me to climb.

I hope you get to do a couple of your "last 3"

happy weekend!

Wonderful news about the young lady in your church. There is nothing greater to boost our faith than answered prayers! :) Thanks for sharing this uplifting bit of news! said...

What a wonderful answer to prayer! I love it when a theme pops into the head for a blog post. Have a great week!

Willow said...

I love that quote--and yes, it does make me wonder what else he has been up to. When I miss a light due to a slow car ahead of me, I try to remember-maybe I'm missing an accident, too.
Great news--no cancer!
Hope you have finished ALL your to do list!

Hi Jerralea! I don't know how to make powerpoints, so I am very impressed by your creativity! And great job on the Spiritual Armor for your Sunday School. I bet that was great!

It's always exciting to be inspired in writing. I always hope you are urged on to keep writing, and can't wait to see what this A to z challenge is all about.
Happy Monday!

Oh, that is wonderful news about no-cancer! So glad you all got to be a part of that answered prayer.

I can just imagine all of you laughing with the twins :-)

Praise God...that is a wonderful report for the young lady from church. I love hearing about your joy with your grandbabies.
