Friday’s Fave Five – Week 6, 2014
To join Susanne and the gang at Living to Tell The Story, go here.
One. New Shoes. Not just one pair, but two. I don’t like shopping and so only go when desperate. My left pinky was poking through the shoe, so I think that qualifies as desperate.
I spent my weekend with my East Bay family and somehow I left my new shoes at home. I don’t know why I didn’t wear my new ones out of the store and leave the old ones in their trash bin.
So I had to go out again and buy another pair. Both were a great price. And now I am set for the year, maybe longer.
Two. Birthday. We celebrated my grand daughter’s 1st birthday last weekend. It was fun for my daughter and I to help my dil with food prep and decorating.
Sofia did a great job with all the attention. And she was an equal-opportunity ignorer of the gifts (except for a Weebles person that she carried around).
Her favourite activity was climbing on 2 stacked guitar cases to get to the red chaise lounge. But that’s what little kids do, so no one minded.
Three. Tea Magnets. Every year we have an annual women’s missionary tea. And every year we give away magnets as a favour. Usually the Women’s Ministry Team makes them, but not this year. 7 ladies crocheted and put them together. I will post photos next week.
Four. Rain. Yes, we’ve gotten a little more rain this week, still not enough. Although I don’t prefer it, I am grateful that we will get more rain this weekend. I hope it doesn’t impact the attendance at our tea Saturday afternoon.
Five. Gratitude Answer. In this week’s Wednesday night small group we had the following question, “How should our belief that Jesus tasted death for us affect the way we live?
My 1st thought was that I should and want to live in gratitude (to Him and for the results of His death) on a consistent basis.
I am sure that my ongoing Friday practice of finding blessings is seeping into my unconscious thoughts and actions.
Your Turn . . . Share one of your gratitudes.
