Need a little sun? Stay tuned for my quote this week...
I’m linking up with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for Friday’s Fave Five, where we recount the week’s blessings.
This week’s favorites for me:
1. Having Word back. I know that sounds strange. After all, it’s a word processing program. But we’ve been without it on our new computer as we make the switch from one computer to another. You just don’t realize how much you use something until it’s not close at hand. I’m forever copying, pasting, saving, noting something…and now I don’t have to go in the other room and use the other computer to do it. (Sigh of relief)
2. A cookbook and blog I discovered. The book is called The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, and this magical link will take you to a wonderful recipe for Cinnamon French Toast. It’s a great book and blog. Cook and author Deb Perlman works in a tiny kitchen and believes you can cook up some great stuff without obscure ingredients. I checked the book out of the library, and now I want my own!
3. Walking into my classroom at 7:30 AM to find pink sweetheart roses and a card from my hubby. I’m still not sure how and when he did this, but he apparently sneaked into my classroom and got my flowers and card all set up. Love it! (My students did, too.)
4. A wonderful book by an awesome writer and friend. Tyndale Digital First has recently released an awesome ebook of Where Treasure Hides by Johnnie Alexander Donley. It’s on sale for only $1.99 until February 17th, and it’s worth much more. What a great story – get it for $1.99 while you can! And visit my friend Johnnie on her blog, Treasured Moments.
And a bonus I have to mention here. My writer friends, Kindred Heart Writers, are such a blessing to me. I’m working on getting a novel ready to release as an ebook, and Johnnie, Jeanie, Karen, and Clella have all read and proofed it for me and have lent incredible support and enthusiasm. They were invaluable as I prepped I’m Outnumbered, too. We met at a writers conference and not a day goes by that we don’t all connect on email. We proof each other’s work, we write devotions for the group, we share, we pray. They’re a real blessing.
5. This quote:
“Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.” (Victor Hugo)
(Thanks, Faith.) Our winter in South Florida isn’t much, but I’m sure some of you are ready to drive your winter away.
I just love the image of laughter as the sun, driving away gloom.
Wishing some sun for you this week,
