Friday's Fave Five #149
Oh my goodness, I can't believe I haven't posted since last week's fave five. But I have been a busy little beaver this week. But that doesn't mean there wasn't blessings in all the busyness. Are you ready to look for yours from the last week?
1. Safe arrivals. Always a favorite when I have family on the roads. My oldest girl brought the youngest home from her 3 weeks away at a youth training summer "camp". And my son arrived at his camping spot safe and sound. When I see that car pull up or get that phone call say they've made it, there is always a huge sigh of relief and a prayer of thankfulness going to God for keeping them safe once again.
2. Oldest daughter home. It's the week out of the summer that she comes home. It's nice to be able to sleep in a bit and then just have casual days with no agenda just to be with her.
3. Stories of fun, adventure and drawing closer to God. I've loved listening to the interesting stories of what my youngest experienced in her 3 weeks away. She's grown so much in maturity and in drawing closer to the Lord. It's exciting to pick up on her excitement of her adventures.
this stuff. It's absolutely perfect for pork or chicken. I'm stocking up to get me through the winter when they probably won't be stocking it so much. Yum, apple-y and cinnamon-y and butter-y. My mouth waters as I type about it. And I'm sorry to my American FFF's but I think it's a Canadian thing. Lucky us! Although I think you may be able to order it online.
5. Goodbye red, hello green. Dill pickle green to be exact. We are repainting younger girl's (16) room from red to green. I don't what possessed us to do red but we haven't really liked it at all. The green is lovely and worth the effort it's taking. Now when I look at her open door it makes me smile.
