Friday's Fave Five #281

Welcome to Friday's Fave Five.  I don't know who will be posting today as it's Good Friday but I thought I would put it up anyway.  I had a crazy busy day at work and had a commitment last night that didn't see me home until late so was not able to get my own list done up but I will be back this morning to do that.  Meanwhile please feel free to link up and visit each other.

If you can't make it back I want to wish you a Happy Easter.  May you reflect on everything this Good Friday means and everything Christ has done.  May you know the love of God towards you and may Sunday find you celebrating the Risen Christ!

Well I'm finally able to quickly get on the computer and jot down some favorite blessings from the past week.  I don't think anyone will be back for it but I like to have my own record.

1.  Workout and Supper with a new friend.  I met this lady in church when they started attending last fall and discovered we go to the same gym and she's started attending my ladies study group.  What a dear friend she is turning out to be.  And how fun it was to have a workout partner for that session.  Our little dinner turned into a 3 hour chat on everything under the sun.  Such a wonderful time of connection.

2.  A New Series at church entitled "Jesus is...".   Last Sunday was Jesus is Grace and it was so good.  Looking forward to this Sunday's "Jesus is Risen"!  I love that fact that as a church body we are exploring and getting to know intimately who it is that we worship and serve.

3.  Greek (Mediterranean) Salad.  Hubby and I have really gotten into raw veggies lately and I have to say that this is one of our favorite ways to enjoy them.  Cherry or grape tomatoes, red onions, kalamata olives, feta cheese, cucumbers.  Sometimes I add romaine, sometimes rotini pasta.  All dressed with Kraft Greek with Feta and Oregano dressing.  Yummy!

4.  Peacock feathers to decorate with.  On a splurge purchase, I bought three feathers to poke into my decorator jar on the mantle and I surprisingly I really love it.  It does need a couple more so I'll get them tomorrow to complete it.  I'd take a pic but the camera is out of commission for the moment.

5.  Good weather forecast.  We've got nice weather forecast for the Easter weekend.  I hope it comes to pass but the thought of it makes me happy.

Happy Easter ! We don't do anything special, I just had one Easter decoration out this year. But there is Easter egg hunting in all cities around here on Sunday.

Oh yay I got my link to post. Am in Boston right now and then heading north to Gordon college to visit our oldest gal and spend the day with her exploring the village of Rockport, MA on the north shore. The hotel is cosy and I'm enjoying a second cup of coffee while Claire gets ready. I hope you have a wonderful Easter celebration.

What a neat connection in your #1!

That series at church sounds really good.

I do hope we all get some springy weather.

Happy Easter!

Happy resurrection day to you Susanne! Yay for working out with a friend and a nice long dinner chat. I love worship, too. I hope everyone on North America has perfect spring weather this weekend!! I will answer your questions regRding the Sheila Walsh book when I get home to NY. I don't have the book with me. Will email me sometime over the weekend as I plan on being home by Saturday evening.

So glad you could come back and recount some of the week's blessings. What wonderful ones! Love that you made a new friend with (clearly) plenty to talk about!

Sorry, I didn't get to participate in FFF last week but loved reading your highlights today.

A new friend who is a "kindred spirit" is always a treasure to find.

Glad you're having good weather as we are too. I'm enjoying the sunshine and the color that is popping out everywhere.

I love those little decorative touches we find from time to time. Yours is feathers and this week mine is pinwheels!
