Friday's Fave Five #525
Welcome to Friday's Fave Five! Are you ready to take a pause and look for the blessings in your past week? Please join us intentionally looking for and being grateful for the blessings God sends our way.
~ nothing broken ~ my Mom had a fall out her back door on Sunday and though she gave herself a good shiner and a horribly bruised shin and knee nothing was broken, Praise God! She was stiff and sore but was still getting around okay. I am so thankful she didn't break anything and that she wasn't by herself. My daughter was over there and could help her.
~ packing list coming together ~ my ministry trip with Operation Christmas Child is coming up fast! Only 3 more weekends left! I've got their packing list and am getting things checked off one by one. The spare room bed is a mess with everything thrown on there but it will soon be in the suitcase and ready to go. I am so thankful to have this opportunity to go!
~ car washes ~ after the bitter cold February and the huge snow dumps last 6 weeks or so, it is finally getting gorgeous out there. But with that comes the slush and muck and mess of a fast melt. The car gets pretty covered with grime, as I'm sure most of you are probably experiencing in some way. I'm thankful for the car washes that can get rid of that stuff without having to wait for summer and garden hose.
~ inspirational stories ~ Love a good inspirational story anytime but I've especially been enjoying some of the ones featured on American Idol this year. Some of these kids have overcome such hard situations and have such gumption to get up and audition.
~ sunshine ~ I am so thankful for the sunshine dominating the last couple of days. And not just sunshine, but warm sunshine bringing the temperature above the freezing mark. And not only warm sunshine but without wind. So glad to see and feel it. I actually sat out on the deck yesterday with a book while the kids played in the snow, still in my coat, but boy was it nice to be able to do that.
