Hi everyone! Sorry this wasn't up first thing this morning. I am totally mixed up in my days. Here is Mr. Linky for ya and I'll be by later with my post!
Well I'm finally able to post my own FFF. Yesterday was a bit rough, I was tired physically from shovelling heavy wet snow and tired emotionally and then things were going on with my dad who is a senior and needing some assistance, so I literally forgot it was Thursday and my post that needed doing. But today is a new day and here we are.
~New Days~ I am so very thankful for new days and a fresh start each morning. Not sure what was going on with my emotions yesterday, everything just built up to be overwhelming, but today totally different. One of my very favorite scriptures is Lamentations 3: 23 - 26 which says:
Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed,
For His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning,
Great is Thy faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion,
Therefore I will wait for Him."
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him,
To the one who seeks Him;
It is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the Lord.
His compassions never fail, they are new and granted to us fresh each morning...what great comfort there is in that. I just have to work on the waiting quietly part. Ha.
~Fun Movie evening with the ladies study group~ Tuesday we decided to have a fun night at study, so we had a stay in movie night complete with an abundance of popcorn and chocolate. We are between studies right now so it was a fun way to unwind and just enjoy each other's company. Love my group of ladies.
~Mexican Food date night~ There is a little local place in town who's food I just crave if I haven't had it in awhile. Hubby and I always seem to be in agreement when that time rolls around. So we headed there on the weekend and got our fix. The owner blessed us with a piece of Tres Leches cake, something I've never had before. Delicious. And now I have something else to crave from there. LOL.
~a good vacuuming~ I don't know what it is about it a fresh vacuuming but just the look of the carpets afterward always lifts my spirits. Weird I know, but hey, it's the little things sometimes.
~blue skies~ they have been few and far between as of late around here so on the days it does show up it is definitely a blessing and for sure a favorite!
What have been your 5 favorite blessings from the last week?
