Friday’s Fave Five – Week 2, 2014

. at . 5 comments

FFF birds on a wireIt is Friday and I am taking time to review this past week for five of my favorite happenings.

To join the rest of the FFF gang, go here to link up. Thanks to Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for hosting this weekly meme.

ONE. Preached on Sunday. I did fine, but the folks who shared the stage with me were awesome! Everything clicked from the offering message and prayer to Communion to worship songs to the drama (about forgiveness)  and to the two gals who gave testimonies (about restoration and hope). I talked from Lamentations and focused on Lamentations 3:22-24 – How Great are God’s Mercies!

TWO. Crayon Art Project. I had special time with my niece, Kadie. We spent a couple of hours


You can’t tell from this photo, but the crayons bled into the sides of the canvas. This is titled, “Tree of Life.” I will glue on 3 words, Pray, Complete, and Write. These are 3 activities I want to do more of in 2014.

working on a melted crayon art project. Mine was one big canvas (18×24). Whereas Kadie made four 5×7 projects. Each one was a colour of the rainbow. She didn’t have $ for a canvas so I suggested she use poster board. They turned out GREAT.

THREE. Frozen, the Movie. After spending time on our art, Kadie and I also saw Frozen. I have heard a LOT about this movie and so expected to be disappointed. NOT! I would see it AGAIN. It was awesome seeing it with Kadie and then talking about it afterwards.

FOUR. Annual Missions Tea. I met with CNC’s Women’s Ministry Team to plan our Tea. It is going to be fun to recruit hostesses and invite guests to experience this awesome event. Besides having High Tea, we will also have a program. We will sing, pray, and hear our speaker share about the need for and impact of missions. . . . I am jazzed because I got ALL the advertisements done. Now I can focus on the people aspect.

FIVE. Studied with Friends. Our Wednesday night small group is taking a 3 week break. On this past Wednesday night I met with two gals from the study. We read the chapter together, answered the questions, and even went on some theological rabbit trails. It was great to hear other perspectives and to have FUN together.

Your Turn . . . Share a favourite (or five) from your past week.

    Sounds like a productive week! I like your art work. Our daughter Katie has seen Frozen twice already and she really enjoyed it. Blessings…

    I think your picture looks great ! beautiful colors ! It’s so much fun to just let flow the colors one into the other !
    I love tea ! I drink all teas except mint tea ! That’s psychological, my grandma gave me mint tea each time I was sick !

    Good things, Susan! They made me smile. I’d seen Frozen, too, and enjoyed so many aspects. The crayon art turned out phenomenally — I love the words you’re planning to attach.

    And I’ve fixed that link if you want to try the recipe. But it’s here, too:

    Okay, now you all are making me want to go see Frozen. Your artwork turned out wonderfully. Love the colors. And good for you for preaching.

    Your study group sounds exactly like something I’d love.
    And, oh, I LOVE your tree of life. It’s beautiful! The words you’ve chosen are great.
