Welcome to Friday's Fave Five. A place to practice training our hearts and minds to see the good blessings God brings into our lives. I know in the United States of America minds are more set towards being thankful as they celebrate Thanksgiving Day next week. But really intentionally noting our blessings in our ordinary days should extend beyond one month or one special day. It should be a lifelong practice, a habit honed and practiced on a daily basis. Please join in with us as we intentionally develop this in our lives and on Fridays share five of our favorite blessings from the past week.
~ gorgeous Sunday walk ~ though it's been colder than normal and we had a blast of wintery weather and snow Sunday was a gorgeous day so we bundled up and took a walk in our favorite park. It was sunny, not a speck of wind, the air was crisp and the water like smooth glass. What a blessing to have a lovely area to get outdoors into God's creation and breathe fresh air. Does wonders for the mind and soul!
~ Operation Christmas Child Collection Sunday ~ Sunday was the collection day of celebration for our shoeboxes packed with love to go to children all over the world. Sent off with love and prayer, 63 boxes will make their way to a different country and be put into the hands of children in need or facing hardship.
~ lovely smelling shampoo and conditioner ~ tried a new brand this last time and I'm loving the smell of it.
~ encouraging conversation ~ Sunday at church a lady joined in my conversation with another lady. As she was talking I knew God had sent her into my path. I'd only met her once before but the words she was saying and the story she was sharing just in natural conversation were so uplifting and God honoring and exactly what I needed right in that moment. I knew it was a not a coincidence but a Godincidence!
~ eye cream used as lip balm ~ with the cold weather and the heater running making the air dryer my lips get so dry. Eye cream to the rescue! It sure has helped. Whatever works!
