Well Friday blew in here so fast. It's like just yesterday I was writing the FFF for last week? Good thing I can take this time to pause and think about my week a bit and find the blessings to take note of them. Join in with us.
Movie and light supper out with friends. My friend and I were so excited to see a movie adaptation of a favorite author's book and we finally got a chance to see it on the weekend.
Bible studies that apply to life. While I love bible studies that take on a more studious tone like studying Greek words and apologetics and the like, I do love a study that takes a book of the bible and totally applies what you are learning to the nitty gritty of living everyday life. Our group is studying the Book of Ruth and this week's lesson really made us think of how it applied to our lives at the moment. We were examining the gifts God has given to each of us and taking a good hard look at how we use those blessings to bless others in practical ways....or not! Discussion was great and we all left with much to think on.
Funny things toddlers say. The two year old in my dayhome has taken off seemingly overnight in the talking department and some of the things he comes up with are hilarious. For example one day our conversation went as follows:
"Susanne, guess what?"
"You never know"
One wonders where a barely two year old comes up with this stuff. Keeps me laughing.
New family signing on with dayhome. This is a huge blessing. It's one of those seasons where the dayhome is finding itself in a huge transition. Kids going to school, moving away, mommas pregnant means from August - December I am losing more than 3/4 of the kids in dayhome. This week I signed with a wonderful family that has two children and will start January. Whew, now thank you Lord for 2 more!
A break in the wind today. It's been windy all week and yesterday was crazy windy again. It was nice today to have a break in the gusting wind. More chilly but calmer. I'll take that over the other. Caught a beautiful picture of the chinook arch with the sunset and high level bridge underneath it though which kinda made the crazy wind worth it. No wind, no chinook arch, no amazing picture.
What were your blessings and good things this week?
