Friday’s Fave Five

It’s Friday, time to look back over the blessings of the week with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story and other friends.

Whew – it’s been a busy week. And a colder one – we even had a little snow! Going from winter to spring is a back and forth business here. But spring is ever closer! Here are some highlights of the last week:

1. My husband’s birthday. We all enjoyed celebrating him on his special day.


2. Ladies group at church. The church we’re visiting had a ladies’ gathering Saturday morning where we discussed a passage we’ve been reading together as a church and prayed together. It has been a very long time since I have been able to attend anything like that, and it was a special time.

3. Lunch at my son and daughter-in-law’s. Usually we gather at our house because of Jim’s mom’s situation and needing someone to be with her. But it worked out to go on a Saturday while her caregiver was here. It was fun!

4. Encouraging texts from friends.

5. An adventure!

Hobbit adventure

I often feel about adventures like hobbits do, but one came up this week! I’ll tell you more about it next week. πŸ™‚

  1. I’m so glad that you had such a special week, Barbara. I’m especially glad that you were able to attend the ladies meeting at the church you’ve been visiting…and that you and your husband were able to go to your son’s home for a gathering. πŸ™‚ I’m sure Timothy enjoyed having you at his house. πŸ™‚ And a Happy Birthday to your husband. That looks like a Boston Cream Pie for his birthday cake. Did you make it? Looks so yummy! Praying you have a fun adventure!

  2. MMMM Boston Creme Pie and crazy candles! πŸ™‚ How fun is that?! So glad you got to attend a ladies group! They can be very encouraging and uplifting. Looking forward to hearing of your adventure!
    Have a very blessed weekend my friend!

  3. Happy Birthday to your hubby. It sounds like you had a very good week, Barbara. I miss being part of a ladies group — the one I was in is no longer meeting, one of those life transitions. Keeping my heart open to find another one. That adventure picture is hilarious! Can’t wait to hear more about it.

  4. Oh it is SO important for our spiritual health to be in a good church and in a small group! So happy you got to have that Saturday time with your new friends.

    happy Birthday to your husband and how fun to get away to your sons for lunch.

    Yay for encouraging texts. I love receiving and sending them!

    Now you have us in suspense!! What was the adventure??!!!

  5. Happy birthday to your husband! The cake looks delicious. Yay for encouraging texts! I still don’t do a lot of texting, and those I do send and receive tend to be really short. I’d love to get encouraging ones πŸ™‚ Now you’ve got me curious about your adventure …

  7. Happy belated birthday to your hubby! So glad that you were able to attend a ladie’s group. Though sometimes it is hard to make my self get there once I’m there it always turns out to be a blessing and an encouragement. Yay for encouraging txts from friends.
