Friday's Fave Five #89

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

My Fave Five this week:
1. Lamb curry and chicken samosas with cilantro chutney. We enjoyed our Indian theme dinner last night.

2. A great quote from Oswald Chambers, "We are not meant to be seen as God's perfect, bright-shining examples, but to be seen as the everyday essence of ordinary life exhibiting the miracle of His grace."  


3.  This week I had a few "Wow! Thank You, Lord, for that!" moments. He cares even about the little details of my days. Praise Yahweh Rohi (The Lord Is My Shepherd)! He leads me, guides me, and refreshes my soul. His presence makes all the difference in the world! I can and I will testify of His goodness, faithfulness, power, love, grace, and mercy forever. The more I know God, the more I love Him and the more grateful I am for Him. The more I love Him and the more grateful I am for Him, the more I want to know Him and to make Him known.

4.
Isaiah (12) and I had lots of fun building tracks and playing with hot wheels. We also had fun playing with bean bags. Simple joys are the best! Glad he still enjoys spending time with Mom and enjoys his innocent childhood :)!

5.

Great list of faves! Love the quote but then again he is one of my faves!! In the small group I lead, we just discussed esther 5 last eve and we all were talking about how the deeper we go with God, the more intimate we become with Him and the more intimate, the more deeper...we Re all learning how to really WAIT on God and be still like Esther did before appearing before Xerxes,. Good stuff!!

I SO enjoyed visiting you today and reading about your blessings of the week! The Oswald Chambers quote is AMAZING! I'm going to make note of it.

And what a blessing that your 12 year old son still enjoys spending time with Mom...and equally as much of a blessing is that Mom takes that time to do so with him.

Your love for the Lord is a blessing!

That is a great quote from Chambers!

Loved your #3! And glad you got some time to play with Isaiah. I fondly remember those moments with my kids.

Oswald Chambers is one of the best devotional writers!

Grateful with you for all your Thank You Lord moments this week. That's so encouraging!

Sweet that your boy still loves the simple playtimes - my boys were like that too.

Many blessings!
