Friday's Fave Five #68

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

My Fave Five this week:-

1. I had a wonderful time at the dumpling-making party with some of the international students at a friend's house. I love dumplings :)!

2. Som Thum (Thai papaya salad)...so yummy! It made me a little homesick for Thailand though. I haven't been back since 1992.


3. I had fun playing Monopoly Deal Card Game with my youngest son (10). 

4. I like this quote:

"Ever wonder why there were two crosses next to Christ? Why not six or ten? Ever wonder why Jesus was in the center? Could it be the two crosses on the hill symbolize one of God’s greatest gifts? The gift of choice.
The two criminals were convicted by the same system. Condemned to the same death. Equally close to the same Jesus. But one changed!

You’ve made some bad choices in life, haven’t you? You look back and you say, “If only I could make up for those bad choices." You can!

When one thief on the cross prayed, Jesus loved him enough to save him. When the other mocked, Jesus loved him enough to let him. He allowed him the choice.


He does the same for you!
" ~Max Lucado

5. After 12 years of doing Steps for Life and being inducted into the Steps for Life Hall of Fame for raising over $10,000 for the Pregnancy Resource Centers, Alyssa (my daughter) is passing the baton to her younger brother. I'm so delighted to see their passion to defend the defenseless and save lives! Please follow this link to visit Isaiah Liljequist's personal web page and help him in his efforts to support Pregnancy Resource Centers of Greater Portland. Thanks!

Have a blessed Good Friday and Resurrection Day weekend! Christ is risen! Let us rejoice and share this great news with everyone!

Love that quote! I'm reading a Max Lucado book right now on Jesus last week. He has some wonderful insight.

Papaya salad sounds delicious.

Wonderful Max Lucado story!

And wonderful that your children are involved in such a great project. My close friend runs a crisis pregnancy centre so that cause is very dear to me!

Happy Resurrection Day to you!
