Friday April 15, 2011 Can you name five blessings from your week? Susanne from Living to Tell the Story hosts Friday’s Fave Five each week. Click on over and see her if you’d like to join in!
Here are my favorites from this week:
1. A calm week. Funny – last week’s #1 was my busy week! You can read about how I dealt with it here. Yes, this week is slower, and it’s definitely nice. Maybe it takes busy to appreciate calm.
2. Photobucket’s maintenance is over! Oh, my. If you weren’t here on Tuesday or Wednesday you may not know, but because my blog is hosted on Photobucket, its maintenance affected me big-time. I was okay with one day, but when it stretched to two, I was getting antsy. Glad everything is squared away now.
3. An upturn for one of my boys. One son has had a rough two weeks, and things are looking up. He sounds so much better when I talk to him. And I’m so thankful for his brothers and other encouragers who stand in the gap when Mom can’t be there. Once a mom, always a mom!
4. Twenty-three more days…in the classroom. Yeah, I just counted. We do have three days of exams after that, but only a total of 23 more classroom meetings. I’m looking forward to summer – lazy mornings, time to write, a little travel, time to read…
5. This quote:
“Wonder is the basis of worship.” (Thomas Carlyle, Scottish historican and essayist of the Victorian era)
I just love wonder. I find it in nature, in a child’s eyes, in a smile or a tear. And it leads me to worship the One who created it all.
Wishing you wonder this week.
