Friday’s Fave Five for June 10

. at . 20 comments

I love the end of the week since I take time to think about and write down 5 blessings that occurred the previous 7 days.

Please share some of your blessings with us.

  1. Going to Women’s Retreat this weekend. Everything is finished thanks to the TEAM (notebooks, badges, etc) and I feel well enough to attend. I even decorated a pail for the Make It contest. I will share photos next week.
  2. Blog clean up. I was bothered by all the stuff on my side bar, so I deleted my blogroll and added a Places I Visit Page at the bottom of the banner with the blogroll info. I had 4 pages of draft posts. Why??? I went through quite a few and deleted enough of them to only have 3 pages worth. I had no technical difficulties and feel good about the clean up.
  3. Music makes me happy.In getting ready for retreat, I got to

    I spent a couple of hours listening to possible choices. At the end I felt happy, content, and encouraged.

    pick the music for Friday night. We’ll have this song played during the intro of the evening:  “Voice of Truth” by Casting Crowns.  Here’s the worship packet: Awesome God” by Rich Mullins,“In Christ Alone” by Stuart Townend & Keith Getty, “The Power of Your Love” by Lincoln Brewster, and “Amazing Grace (My Chains Are Gone)” by Chris Tomlin.

  4. Frozen yogurt is my dessert of choice. I am going through a frozen yogurt phase. I love trying the new flavours. The newest one I tasted is Cake Batter. And yes, it tasted like cake batter. I added Peanut Butter and Belgium Chocolate to my cup and , mmmmm, deliciousness ensued.
  5. I woke up Wednesday morning with no pain.  That hasn’t happened since I broke my shoulder on April 16, 2011. The physical therapist says one reason my arm hurts upon waking is because there has been a lack of circulation during the night. I don’t know what no pain means , but I am looking forward to more such mornings.

    I love your song choices. They are some of my favorites! I hope and pray that your shoulder will be completely healed soon. Have a blessed time at the Women’s Retreat!

    P.S. I think you left a comment on my blog indicating that you’d like to join 21 Days of Prayer for Sons. I’m unable to add you to the group unless you’re my friend on Facebook. I sent you a friend request (I’m “Fruit Bearer” on FB).

    Thanks for visiting today. I did accept your Friend request and joined your group. I am looking forward to seeing how God answers through this prayer time for my son.

    Waking up without pain is a huge blessing, I know what that is like! And how wonderful that you feel well enough to go to retreat.

    I love frozen yogurt too and would eat it every day if it weren’t for the price. . .


    • 4. susan2009  |  . at .

      Yes, Brenda, the price is a deterrent to me too.
      I plan on enjoying retreat although I will be very cautious regarding my surroundings. I was packing up my backpack and remembered that the last time I used it was on that fateful day I broke my shoulder.

      Thanks so much for your prayers, Patricia. It was great to talk with you the other day. I felt very encouraged by your words and example. Hopefully next year you can join us. Let’s see what we can do to make it happen!


  • 7. Laura  |  . at .

    No pain? That is SO awesome! Music makes me happy, too — and the same music that makes you smile. Neat.

    Glad to hear you you felt so well. I’m sure it’ll be a great weekend. Have a great week, too.


    • 8. susan2009  |  . at .

      Thanks, Laura. It was a great weekend and the week was good too. Although last week was full of recovering from women’s retreat, starting back to work (full-time), and doing even more physical therapy exercises at home.


  • 9. Willow  |  . at .

    In Christ Alone is one of my favorite new hymns and Townend and Getty are two of my favorite artists. Enjoy your retreat! Will you have frozen yogurt there?


    • 10. susan2009  |  . at .

      Hello Willow – lol. I didn’t think about frozen yogurt even once while at retreat. probably because my gallbladder wasn’t feeling too great. I don’t know what other songs Townend and Getty have written. I will have to do a youtube search.


  • 11. Susanne  |  . at .

    I have not had frozen yogurt in forever. Now you have me craving some.

    A morning with no pain and well enough to attend you retreat? Praise God! Love every one of those songs.


    • 12. susan2009  |  . at .

      I LOVE all those songs too, Susanne. I decided to go with songs that I LOVED and hoped the others would get refreshed by them too. I am so happy to report that that was the case.

    It is nice to get a blog cleaned up some times. Often I don’t even notice certain things then one day I’ll go on a frenzy. My housecleaning is like that, too. 🙂

    I haven’t had frozen yogurt in ages. Thanks for reminding me about it.

    Hurray for no pain!


    • 14. susan2009  |  . at .

      Barbara – lol. My housecleaning is like that too. This week my food love has been smoothies. They are almost like frozen yogurt but cheaper and maybe even healthier.


  • How wonderful that you’re feeling better! I hope you’re enjoying the retreat. I love retreats. I could use one.

    Frozen yogurt. Yum. – and – your blog looks great!


    • 16. susan2009  |  . at .

      Thanks for the compliment about my blog, Catherine. My sister put together the banner. I am trying to slimline my categories list. I hope you get to go to a retreat soon, even if it is a solo one.


  • 17. Cathie  |  . at .

    I’m glad your shoulder has healed enough for the pain to be gone. A retreat with uplifting music sounds refreshing. And you were able to be blessed by the preparation, too, by thinking and anticpating the ahead of time.


    • 18. susan2009  |  . at .

      Yes, Cathie, I really do like the prep time for almost anything. During the preparation time almost anything is possible. And thinking of possibilities is energizing to me.


  • 19. claudiawjohnson  |  . at .

    Yeah for the no pain day! That is wonderful. I”m going to listen to your playlist this morning. Have a great day!


    • 20. susan2009  |  . at .

      Hi Claudia, I hope the songs bring you encouragement like they did me. I love the healing power music can bring.
