Friday's Fave Five #567
Hi everyone and welcome to Friday's Fave Five. We're intentionally practicing taking a pause and looking for blessings in our lives, developing gratefulness for the good things God blesses us with, both big and small. Please join us.
~this post and this post by our blogging friends Faith and Barbara~ One encourages us to be in the Word daily as it is food for our souls and the other gives some great wisdom to read and study the bible. Both came at just the right time for me and were confirmation to what God was nudging me towards.
~heaters~ Alberta has been sitting in the deep freeze this week with temps in my area falling into the -27*C (with a "feels like" making it -34*C) range at night. That's -17*F (feeling like -29*F) for my American friends. Bone chilling cold. Where my son lives in the capital of Alberta it went to -40*C!! I have been very grateful this week for all kinds of heating. Our home furnace and kept the cold at bay, our electric fireplace in the living room has added extra toastiness to the frigid evenings. My car's heater has kept us warm as we drive. Very grateful for all the warmth these heaters provide.
~hot nourishing soups and crockpot meals~ when cold like this we crave warm, one pot nourishment. Meatball soup, cream cheese chicken, stew are just a few of the things that have got on the supper table. Love these kinds of comfort foods.
~ new brush ~ for years I've been looking for a certain kind of brush. I finally came across it quite by accident and it'exactly what I wanted. Just a little thing, but a blessing nontheless.
~ unexpected day off ~ Wednesday I was handed a day off I was not expecting. I was so nice to just take it easy and get caught up on some chores that kept getting put on the back burner.
What have been your blessings from the last week?
