Friday’s Fave Five
It’s Friday, so it must be time to list five blessings from this past week. Susanne from Living to Tell the Story is the host of this weekly meme. Write your own list and link up here. Or leave a comment with one or five of your own blessings from this week.
Caramel Apple Salad. I LOVE caramel apples: the milky caramel slathered on fresh apples that have been festooned with nuts and chocolate. BUT I don’t like biting INTO the apple. I am not a big fan of the mess it makes on the face. And it hurts my teeth because the apples are too big. So this week I made a caramel apple salad. Yummy. Each bite had that perfect blend of apple-to-caramel ratio! The recipe is here.
Snowman Ornament. Each year I give a snowman ornament to my sister’s girls and my daughter. I buy the same one for myself as well. If my son wants mine, they are his when I die. (He doesn’t want them now.) Instead of fighting all the holiday gear that is out, I joined the masses and already picked up this year’s ornament. And it was 65% off. Gotta love coupons.
Operation Christmas Child Boxes. It is so cool that I can impact a child’s life by filling a shoe box with goodies like hygiene items, something to wear, toys, school supplies, and a cuddly something. For many, this is the first time they’ve ever received a gift. Shopping sales made this an economical tithing venture.
Note Cards. I am going to be a first-time grandma about February 4th. Nora is the other grandma. She sent me some lovely note cards to introduce herself and to thank me for loving her daughter (the baby’s mama). Her daughter, Daniella, is soooo easy to love, (as is my son, Tim). I was touched beyond words by this act of kindness
Bible Study. Oh, my. What a great study (66 Love Letters). What a great group of people (11 ladies and 1 guy). On Wednesday night we had a moving time of prayer, sharing insights and trials, and homework that will take us out of our comfort zone – in a good way. In a godly way. I am blessed to be able to partner with this group.
