Five on Friday
I haven't been doing the "four on Friday" ....or, "five on Friday", for the past few weeks, so thought I would give it a try today...here goes!!!
1....I came across this scripture and it so much applies to all the things I've said lately about worry. This is from the New Life Version - Philippians 4:6-7...Do not worry. Learn to pray about everything. Give thanks to God as you ask Him for what you need. The peace of God is much greater than the human mind can understand. This peace will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
2....This has been such a special week as far as family is concerned. I've spent a lot of time this week with the grandsons, and they totally have my heart....but, so does their Mommy!!! I had to correct Grandson #1 for throwing something we've asked him to hand to us, not throw...and it hurt his feelings so bad. He's not used to Nana scolding him. I'm not sure who it hurt more...me, or him. Afterwards, I had to hug and kiss on him and tell him I was sorry, but I had to correct him. I'm not sure his almost 2 year old little mind comprehended my explanation...but I felt a bit better!!! Also, I've spent time this week with Jessica Leigh....my Mom....went to see my Grandmother who will be 97 years old this year...so, yeah, a good week for family!!!
3....Glad it's Friday...don't ask me why a "retired" person is still glad when Friday comes. Probably because I know that Pappy will...should....be home for the weekend. It's quarter close and he's having to work lots of OT...which we need...but, it's wearing him out, and I miss having our Saturday morning breakfast dates...WWAAHH!!!! :(
4....I've told you all about "The Lord's Table"...in a previous post. Well...it is a remarkable, wonderful, inspiring Bible study geared to make you understand why you overeat...well, actually, why you are a glutton (I despise that word). This is my second time thru the study, and it is so amazing, but not just in loosing weight...but...I have to say...yesterday was one of my worst days in a long, long, long, time!!! I'm not sure why, except that I have found that if I am pooped, I eat...and I have been so, so tired lately...so...guess what?!?!?.....yeah...I ate wwwwwwaaaaayyyyyy too much yesterday, and I am saying right here in front of God and everybody....especially God...I am sorry....I am sorry I turned to food instead of turning to your Word...or prayer...or song....or plain old going to bed....I'm sorry I turned to food instead of You.
5....For those of you who don't already know...I have no cell phone service. I have walked in the mornings for almost a year now (why then you might ask aren't you skinny???)...read #4 above for a hint as to why...any-who...Wednesday morning, I took my phone out of my pocket to check the time, and while trying to slip it back into my pocket...it slipped onto the asphalt instead. The odd thing is....I just told the girl at the AT&T store last week that I didn't plan on getting another phone, I really like...liked...my phone. Well, the Good Lord must think I need another one...because my pink Razor....Pinkie....who has been my constant companion for almost 2 years....will soon go to the big cellphone pile at the local dump with all the other dead phones!!! I told some friends today that in lieu of flowers, please just make a donation to....just kidding. But...if God is seeing fit to bless me with a new phone...I'm thinking a red LG Shine....yeah...sounds good to me...thank you, Lord!!!
Okay..that's it...I made it to five!!!
Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend....don't know if I'll be posting this weekend.....I've gotta get some rest......so, if not before, I'll talk atcha on Monday...have a wonderful, safe weekend!!!
