Friday's Fave Five #55

It's time for another Friday's Fave Five (hosted by Susanne at Living to Tell the Story).

My Fave Five this week:-
1. We had a blast at Oaks Amusement Park on Saturday! Fun family outing before Alyssa's departure to Malaysia to serve onboard the Logos Hope next week.

2. A nice visit from my mother-in-law, my kids' cousin and her boy. We had a fun water-squirt guns war! Wet and wild :)! Lots of running, laughing, and screaming!

3. Staying up late and spending time with my daughter, Alyssa. She has been adjusting her sleeping pattern so that she won't be having a jet lag when she arrives in Malaysia.

4. I like this quote: "When a husband is happy, his wife is happy. When he is treated like a king, respected as a man, admired like a hero, and inspired to be all he can be, his wife reaps the benefits." (from the book, When a Woman Inspires Her Husband by Cindi McMenanin)  Marriage is not about getting our needs met; it's about dying to self and practicing what it means to truly love like God does (unconditionally/1 Corinthians 13) and living out Philippians 2:1-16 daily.

5. John Piper's video below. We have only one life to live. Let's not waste it! Are you living for self or living for God?

How clever of your daughter to already start adjusting to a new sleeping schedule rather than letting it hit her when she gets there.

Sounds like lots of family fun was happening this last week for you guys!

Sounds like a fun week with a perfect summer treat of an amusement park!

I love Jon Piper too, he is smart when he talks about God. I'm not sure about that quote tho, I agree marriage is a two way street, but that saying makes me a little uneasy. I don't want my happiness to be dependent on another person being happy. I want to be content with God, not dependent on my circumstances.

You had a very nice week, but I don't agree to treat the husband like a king, he should treat me like a queen, lol !

The water-gun war sounds like so much fun for these hot summer days!

Glad you're having some fun times with your daughter before she goes! Great idea to get adjusted to the new time beforehand.

So much summer goodness in these faves! I can almost hear the splashing and laughter.

That's a great clip from John Piper.
