Friday’s Fave Five

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. I mentioned it earlier, but our church’s Thanksgiving praise service is one of the highlights of the year to me. The majority of the time is open for people to share testimonies, and, though we have testimonies other times, this one is just special. Often it’s a look back over the year, praising God for blessings and good times, thanking Him for grace and help and lessons learned through hard times. I don’t usually say anything, but I enjoy listening.

2. Autumn spices. We use cinnamon year round, but nutmeg, cloves, and ginger come out primarily in the fall. I was thinking as I made pumpkin pie Wednesday that I loved the smell of those spices.

3. I could probably make a whole Fave Five out of Thanksgiving — foods and smells and Pilgrim decorations and the opportunity to stop and count my blessings. Though we’re supposed to be thankful year round, it’s just a special time and emphasis.

4. Everyone’s having time off from school and work and regular routines.

5. Naps. Any time, but especially Thanksgiving Day after the meal and clean-up.

  1. Aww, that kitty is so cute — and I’m not even a cat person! 🙂

    I second everything on your list too, and thank you for reminding me about spices and aromas. Time to get out the Christmas candles!

  2. Naps! One of my favorite things, too! In fact I just woke up from a nice long day after Thanksgiving nap. It is so nice to indulge in that simple pleasure.

  3. I enjoyed reading this. This past week, I went to the implant center for a look see, no charge. That was good! I had my hair done and enjoyed the fellowship there. I had lunch with my neighbor in Memphis and had a safe drive back to Alabama. #1 would be all the quality time with my Honey.

I love hearing from you. I've had to turn on comment moderation. Comments will appear here after I see and approve them.
