Before moving ahead, I like to look back at the blessings God gave me this past week. Joining the group at Friday's Fave Five is a wonderful way to do just that. Visit Susanne at Living to Tell the Story if you would like to participate as well.
First on my list is thanking God for a wonderful Father's Day. All our kids and grandkids were able to be at our house for lunch.
I'm thankful for my hubby!
Secondly, I'm thankful for my own father. I wrote two posts this week about fathers, A Good Father and Monkey See, Monkey Do, and I'm glad I had good memories as a background for my posts.
Thirdly, I'm thankful for my Heavenly Father and His awesome Word. It seems like every time I read it, I find something new in it to uplift and inspire. Here is a choice morsel:
Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. - Colossians 1:12-14 ESV
Backing up a little, I also enjoyed a great afternoon at my favorite lake last Saturday. Love those times of refreshing!
Finally, a quote to challenge:
"Your calling is about who you’re meant to serve. What you’ll take a stand for. And more importantly, what you’ll stand against." Jeff Goins' “why most writers are doomed to fail”
And so ends another week on the Journey. I'm expecting a great weekend. My plan is to make myself go to bed before midnight tonight and sleep in some on Saturday.
What are your plans?
