Friday’s Fave Five

Welcome to Friday’s Fave Five, hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story, in which we can share five of our favorite things from the last week,  wonderful exercise in looking for and appreciating the good things God blesses us with. Click on the button to learn more, then go to Susanne’s to read others’ faves and link up your own.

It has been a delightfully springy week. Here are some of the best parts:

1. Glorious spring weather, not too warm or cool. So refreshing.

2. Blooming trees and greening lawns and hills. It’s so good to see color come back to nature.

3. Row boats. The route to my mother-in-law’s place passes a lake and part of a river, which are often beautiful to look at anyway, but this time of year there are rowboats scattered throughout it. UT and other schools use it for training and meets. It’s kind of funny to see the rowers working hard at it and the coach skimming along in a motor boat with a megaphone. 🙂 It all looks very peaceful, though I am sure it is a lot of hard work. I’ve been wanting to stop and take a picture, but haven’t yet.

4. The Wilds Ministry Team. The Wilds is a Christian camp in NC where all of my kids have spent summers. Besides the camp ministry they publish beautiful music. They have recently formed a ministry team that travels around churches, and we had them at ours last week and very much enjoyed them.

5. Sleep. Last Sunday afternoon I had a 2 hour nap — it’s been a long time since that has happened! I thought it would then keep me awake late, but it didn’t much. Then last night I fell asleep about an hour earlier than usual, and feel refreshed and much more awake than usual. Though I know the restorative power of sleep, I tend to like to stay awake much later than I should.

Hope you have a great weekend!

  1. oh i LOVE watching crew teams!! our high school has a good one but my oldest daughter wasn’t interested at all. And now she tells me she is taking Canoeing at Gordon College next year. lol….my youngest has NO desire to be on crew (she’ll be at the high school next year) but she does like to use our kayaks. And yay for spring color popping out!! That camp looks wonderful! i like the video they have on the main page. We are sending our youngest to a youth group camp for the first time this summer…in the Berkshire Mts of MA so only about 2 hours from us. Enjoy your weekend!!

  2. I hear ya on the staying up way too late when I know better. That is a constant in my life.

    We have dragon boaters on the lake practicing every spring. They are fun to watch.

    Although we’ve had some absolutely beautiful spring days I don’t think anything is yet blooming. It’s still getting quite cold through the night.

  3. Boy, isn’t sleep a wonderful blessing? I have had some trouble with it this week but last night was very restful. Glad you got some good napping in. And hurray for spring arriving in your neck o’ the woods!

  4. Don’t you love those naps? They’re the greatest. I have students who row, who do crew. It’s definitely not a walk in the park, but it’s peaceful to watch.

    Have a great week ahead!
