Yess.. it's Friday again!

Happy “Friday’s Fave Five” - hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story. Click on the linky to see what 5 things other bloggers are love love loving this week!


1. Old Pictures
I scanned lots of old pictures last weekend. It was so much fun to look back through them and try try try to remember being that young again! I've heard lots of stories and seen home videos, but I really don't remember much earlier than elementary.
Look at those dimples in my chubby chubby cheeks!

2. Psalm 139
I've been meditating on these verses for over a week now. The entire chapter is full of goodness! These two verse have been my prayer every morning::
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. [Psalm 139:23,24]

3. God's Favor
My friend Nick that was very very very suddenly diagnosed with leukemia last Friday [read HERE], moved home on Wednesday. I can't write much because I don't know much, except that he's been really strong and really positive. On Wednesday he wrote, "Again, thank you all for your prayers they mean the world to me and i know i would not be feeling this great without your prayers and without God. thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!!"
Nick, Me, and Phillipe back in hiiigh school

4. Realizations
It's nice to know that when I slide off the roller coaster of life, there is someone behind me to catch me before I fall, someone who was sitting there the whole time, through all the ups, downs, and turns. I hope you have friends like that too.

5. Acoustic Worship
This morning in chapel the sound system was having problems and shut down during worship. I think the sound guys and the worship band was in a slight panic, but I was glad; it was WONDERFUL! Not because I don't like microphones, or electric guitars and drums, or loud music, but because the quietness was beautiful conducive to an atmosphere of heart-felt worship. Thank you Jesus for erupting the noise and giving us silence; You deserved it!

Loved reading your list! Did you know there is an old hymn that uses these verses? You probably haven't...I can remember my Mom singing it in church when I was younger. If you haven't heard of it, I'll be glad to send you a copy of it. It's really pretty!
