Friday’s Fave Five
This week has come to a close and so it is time to share five blessings. To read other lists or to link up your own list go to Friday’s Fave Five at Susanne’s Living to Tell the Story.
ONE. I sent out Valentine’s Day cards. And to make them extra special, I mailed them with stamps I ordered from Stamps.com. At this site you design stamps with a photo of your choice. I made stamps with my precious granddaughter’s photo.
This darling even made a card for me using a heart-shaped potato stamp and red paint.
TWO. Valentine’s Day is always extra special because we also celebrate the birthday of one of my nieces, Kadie. She came home from college for the festive weekend. This sweetheart is caring, funny, talented, godly, and a joy to be around.
THREE. Besides having our traditional birthday breakfast of waffles and ice cream, we also had a birthday dinner. Family and friends gathered for good food, lots of visiting, and even some rowdy singing. We sang pop and Christian music with guitar and ukulele accompaniment.
FOUR. Lent started this week. Even though I didn’t grow up in or currently attend a liturgical church, I enjoy observing Lent. I wrote this post of ideas to help me (us) observe Lent. On Wednesday night I attended a Lent service with some Catholic friends, Joe and Geri. It was a moving and meaningful service. Afterwards we ate fish tacos. Read about my 1st Ash Wednesday service here.
FIVE. Last night I gathered with the gals (Reggie and Bip) from the Women’s Ministry Team (from church). We assembled the magnets for our annual women’s missionary tea. I think this is our 10th tea and every year we give out a magnet. This year’s magnets are soooooo cute. And to top it off, they only cost about $0.45 each. I will post a photo of them after our tea. Until then they design is top-secret!
Have a happy and warm week and be sure to look for items for your next Friday’s Fave Five.
