Friday’s Fave Five – Last One in March
This Friday’s Fave Five leads up to Easter, Jesus’ most loving and miraculous moment.
“The Bible tells us that Jesus Christ came to do three things. (1) He came to have my past forgiven, (2) [gave me] a purpose for living and (3) and [bought me] a home in Heaven,” (Rick Warren).
I am also grateful for the following events that occurred this past week.
One. Meeting new family. I celebrated (a belated
birthday) with family in the East Bay. I had the lovely opportunity to meet my daughter-in-love’s aunt (from Chile) and mom (from Chile but lives in VA).
These two sisters were quite patient with my lame attempts at speaking Spanish. They didn’t even laugh when I said, “mas mejor” instead of “mucho mejor.” I was trying to say, “much better.”
Two. Snuggling. Over the weekend I had two snuggling opportunities with my 2-month-old grand daughter. She was soooo alert. And her smiles melted my heart. For some reason most of the family vetoed my idea of buying this pacifier or even this one.
Three. Truth in Art. I love seeing the creations the Sunday School kiddos make that reinforces their lessons. Many thanks to the teachers who add these to the curriculum so that truths stick and are fun to learn.
The directions to make the crosses are here.
Four. Shopping. I don’t care for clothes shopping. It is such a pain to find clothes that match and fit well especially trousers. But after attending my first CAbi party, I now have a new view on clothes shopping. And it was a fun experience.
Five. Mentoring. Our church just started a 6-month mentoring program for the ladies. I am quite pleased to be part of this. My mentee is quite sharp, motivated, curious, and loves the LORD. So I know being her partner will cause me to grow a BUNCH.
Your Turn . . . Please share what has caused you gratitude this week.
