Friday's Fave Five
It is time once again to ponder the blessings God has brought me this week. I am sure there are too many to list if I would endeavor to name them all. But alas, I cannot. I must pick five only.
My first would be new books that are really old! I love reading and will read many books ever so much more than the average person. I love to re-visit old friends through the pages of literature. This week, I have started Jane Eyre, again! And next I will start North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell. (I won't tell you about the other 6 books I am reading. And yes, I read them all at the same time!)
My next favorite would be movies based on books! The faithful re-tellings of good books that is. I enjoy seeing characters I love given form and substance in a way that honors the authors original ideas. *see the first fave five!
My third favorite for the week is BSF!! I got the call last night and they found a group for me to be in. Yay! I am having a little trouble concentrating on the lesson at this point but that could be due to the fact that I'm not sleeping well at night and nothing at all to do with the subject matter. lol It has been a while since I have been involved in a corporate Bible Study and I am so looking forward to it.
Fourth on my list is our weather. I love living in a state that has all the seasons every year. It makes it even more interesting to see several of those seasons in the same day! haha This week we had a hail storm that pounded hail on us that was traveling in excess of 100mph. No kidding. We found several pieces in our yard that were as big as our hands.
And last but not least, I am thankful that God loves my children enough to let them get caught in their sin. It is so hard to watch your children make sinful choices but some lessons are better learned the hard way. Praise God that He will catch them and restore them. (nobody freak out, it wasn't a *major ordeal but it was big enough)
How about you? Do you have a list of favorite things God has blessed you with this week? If so, head on over to Living to tell the Story and share with us.
