Friday’s Fave Five – November 15, 2019

. at . 6 comments

Friday’s Fave Five is a space for thanksgiving. We recount five blessings from the past week. We are grateful for the big and small things, people, places, thoughts, etc. Below is my list.

ONE. Leaves. I think leaves are one of God’s wonderful deeds. This is especially true when I am taking a walk through layers and layers of them. “I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart; I will recount all of your wonderful deeds.” Psalm 9:1 … I am grateful for God’s wonderful deeds.

TWO. Music. Singing or listening to praise music leads me to thanking God for who He is and what He has done. “The Lord is my strength and shield. … I trust him with all my heart. … He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. … I burst out in songs of thanksgiving.” Psalm 28:7… I am grateful that music influences my moods and thinking; as well as being a way I can express myself.

THREE. Gratitude Mug & Muffin (M&M). On Saturday, 24 women gathered at my church to drink beverages out of our mugs, eat muffins (and other foods), craft, and listen to two women share how gratitude has impacted them. This was an encouraging morning and gave me much to think about. I am now more motivated to live in and express gratitude daily. Soon, I will post thoughts that the two ladies shared. … I am grateful for the example of others and how that changes me.

FOUR. Biscotti. Marsha and I baked biscotti for the M&M. We made pumpkin chai and dark chocolate orange. Both were good, but the dark chocolate orange was better than good. Here is a link to the recipe. … I am grateful for time with Marsha and trying new recipes 9especcially from Sally’s Baking Addiction).

FIVE. Harriet, the movie. Marsha and I also saw this movie. It was powerful. Such a dark time in our nation’s history. I keep thinking about this quote that Harriet said to her master’s son: “God don’t mean people to own people!” … I am grateful for people who do what it takes to eliminate evil.

    Oh i really wanna see Harriet!! She is one of my fave historical figures. In fact, I’m doing the devotional Hearing from God based on the movie and available for free via the Bible app ( YOU version)

    I love dark chocolate and orange, I’ll have to see if i can make some biscotti, i usually buy it, is it easy to make?

    I love the idea of mug and muffin and you just gave me an idea for my next small group event! Thank You!

    I also am grateful for all music ( i was a music major for my undergrad degree) and for leaves!!!

    Happy weekend!

    I love the leaves this time of year, too–the beautiful ones on the trees and the crunchy ones underfoot.

    I think music is one of God’s greatest gifts to us.

    I saw the previews for that movie–I want to see it some time!

    A nice interesting list this week. The biscotti sounded yummy and yes being aware of gratitude is a good thing.

    My step-son saw Harriet onThursday night and he said it was very good. It’s nice to see a white teenager getting something out of that movie. I agree with you about leaves.

    What a great Friday’s Fave Five. I so enjoyed reading this! That biscotti sounds wonderful, I’ve pinned the recipe.

    I saw Harriet a couple of weeks ago. Yes! It was wonderful but hard.
    I like the idea of bringing your own mug to a group meeting. Maybe I’ll suggest it for our women’s ministry.
    Leaves! Yes! They are beautiful! Thank you, God, for leaves!
