Susanne at Living to Tell the Story hosts a “Friday Fave Five” in which we share our five favorite things from the past week. Click on the button to read more of the details.
1. No more political ads or calls! At least for a while.
2. This live webcam of a box of puppies brought to my attention by my son. Very cute and very relaxing to watch! The only downside is not being able to pick one up. It will likely only be up a few more weeks.
3. The weather this week has been just perfect: no rain, a little breezy, a little cool in the mornings and a little warm in the afternoon.
4. Our ladies’ meeting Monday night where we watched a DVD titled Peace Child from the book by the same name, reviewed here. It’s just amazing how God opened the hearts of headhunters and cannibals who thought Judas was the hero of the story because they valued treachery and caused them to understand the gospel. A scene at the end with a native hut filled with former headhunters singing hymns is just thrilling. And the missionaries, I am sure, do not want to be thought of as extraordinary Christians, but rather just faithful Christians who took Him at His word and trusted Him not only for their personal safety but for wisdom to know how to reach these people with His love, yet their example is still inspiring.
Plus the fellowship at the meetings is always a blessing. And the hostess made loaded potato soup, which I love, and even sent some of the leftovers home with us!
Then some of the same ladies plus a couple more met again last night to have another session to make cards for our missionaries for Christmas. I so appreciated their willingness to come out another night in the same week( had to meet this week because next week is missions conference), and once again enjoyed the fellowship and the creativity. It is so much fun to do that kind of thing in a group and get inspired by other people’s ideas.
5. Homemade banana bread! Though it doesn’t last long around here.
I enjoy this opportunity to look back over the good things from the week! It extends the enjoyment of and thankfulness for them a little longer.
