Friday’s Fave Five (9/25/16)
I enjoy my habit of looking over the past week to pick 5 blessings. There are usually many more than 5, but these are the ones that are the most meaningful at the moment. Join Susanne’s meme at Living to Tell the Story. You can read more Friday’s Fave Fives or share your own.
ONE. Game Night. 26 ladies from church gathered for games and nachos. We laughed, played, ate, visited, and listened to a devotional. Of course it was about games. This went so well we will have another game night each quarter of 2016.
TWO. Retreat. Our Women’s Retreat is October 23-25. We had a bake sale last Sunday which brought in enough money for one scholarship and for some of the retreat expenses. Hurray! And another hurray is that we had an unexpected person inquire about going. I LOVE it when newer ladies take that scary chance and decide to go on an outing with us.
THREE. Finished a book. This time it was a funny one: The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion: A Novel by Fannie Flagg. I am looking for more books to read that fit into the humour category. Have you got a suggestion?
FOUR. Prayer. This week I went to see the War Room with 4 friends. (Someone suggested it last week in FFF. Sorry I cannot remember who.) Powerful! We are now going to have a ladies event in January where we watch that movie, have lunch, and then discuss the themes and how to implement them.
AND I had an awesome answered prayer (on behalf of a friend regarding her employment) – the ink wasn’t even dry before it was answered.
FIVE. Fall Decoration. Last week Susanne talked about decorating for Fall. I don’t normally decorate for seasons other than Christmas. But this year, I put that on my Fall Bucket List. And I now have my first Fall decoration. I had the idea and the pumpkin. My talented friend, Geri, had the flowers and the inspiration. THANKS for the idea, Susanne.
I will be decorating a pumpkin (from my Fall Bucket Ideas). Anyone have an idea besides the obvious?
Please leave a comment about a blessing from your past week.
