Friday is the time I like to stop in the middle of the busy and reflect. This journey I'm on sometimes feels like it's really a super-sonic train ride with everything rushing by in a blur. It's helpful and calming to stop and take my bearings, so to speak.
This week was a little different because our schedule was a little different. One night we took off to visit a revival where a friend of ours was speaking.
What an adventure that turned out to be! You can read about it in my post, "Laughter: The Best Medicine."
Thinking about the adventure brings to mind my thankful list - or as we FFF bloggers like to say - our five faves:
- We didn't have car trouble or run off the road that night. (It was a very real possibility and we had no working cell phones on us!)
- An answer to prayer personally: If you've been a reader of my blog from the beginning, you know we seem to have more accidents than you can shake a stick at! (I know that was bad grammar, but I did it for emphasis.) Once again, there was an accident, a small fender-bender, if you will. Once again, God came through for us. It. All. Worked. For our good. Why do we keep getting surprised?
- Memories - I love remembering all the wonderful things God has blessed me with and brought me through.
- I'm so thankful for all the resources available to me to study God's word. How do people make it that don't know the word of God? I'd be a basket case of nerves if I didn't have God's word to stand on.
- I was given a small bouquet of daffodils. Love the yellow color and even more the promise of Spring they bring.
Don't forget this Sunday is the start of Daylight Savings Time. Yes, we might lose an hour of sleep, but it's worth it to have more hours of sunshine. I love the light! (I'll just go to bed an hour early.)
I'm excited because tomorrow I'm attending a War Room Conference on Prayer. The movie made a big impact on me. I'm hoping to learn some practical ways to make prayer even more a part of my days. (No, I don't have a closet I can turn into a War Room ... because I totally would if I could.)
I'm also excited because I'm looking forward on my Pastor's new sermon series that starts this Sunday, "Seven Steps of Destruction." We do have an enemy, in case you weren't aware, and there are things he tries on every Christian. My aim is to be prepared and alert!
I plan to share some of what I'm learning in future posts.
And so ends another week on the Journey. How did your week go? I'd love to know! Share in the comments, or consider linking up your own post at Susanne's space, Living to Tell the Story.
