five things this friday

five things 
on this friday~

the weather here has turned to 
and this makes it hard for me
to want to get out of bed.
i want to burrow
deeper and deeper
underneath the warmth of 
the blankets
and drift off

harvest party
our church is having
a harvest party
tomorrow night.
our daughter is meeting us there
with our two year old grandson.
it is always
wonderful to experience
a holiday with a little one-
their wonder and excitement
reminds us of how 
good life really is!

two friends of mine
are experiencing loss this week
of their fathers.
both were christian men
so we know without a doubt
that our loss is heaven's gain
but, still
my thoughts and prayers 
are with these two families
as they struggle through
their sorrow and grief

the glow from
our fireplace-
so warm and cozy.
 sitting and basking in front of 
the glow-
my laptop
or book 
and just relax
and soak it all in.

sometimes it is hard
to shine our light,
to smile and be kind

 these quotes
i will leave you with
this friday;

"thousands of candles can be lit
from a single candle,
and the life of the candle
will not be shortened.
happiness never decreases by
being shared. " 

Shine Your light and let the whole world see, we're singingFor the glory of the risen King, JesusShine Your light and let the whole world see, we're singingFor the glory of the risen King -hillsong

happy weekend!
