Friday’s Fave Five #6

It’s Friday!  And it’s Good Friday! 

springtime FF5 

This has been a difficult week for me, in a lot of ways but I’ve been determined to remain positive and to see the good in all things and all people.   So here is what I’m thankful for despite the tough week.

Thanks again to Susanne for hosting this.  Head on over to Living to Tell the Story  for other Fave Five’s.

1.  This ProverbThe gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials.  It’s like a lesson straight out from the bible.  But it’s a Chinese Proverb.  Either way this really spoke to me and reminded me of life’s little ups and downs.  And especially this week being difficult and all it’s been a great reminder.

2.  Holy Week.  Next to Christmas this week/holiday really helps me to purposefully slow down to focus and remember Jesus, His life, His Death and His Resurrection. I love to read those passages in the bible and envision in my head what was happening.  The mood, the people, the smell.   The excitement, the joy, the fear and the sorrow.

3.  Coffee.  I love my coffee and yeah maybe I’ve had one too many this week but I love a good cuppa.  And I confess I’m addicted to Starbucks.  I contribute a lot to them. I’ve been “Star bucked”!  Although I still get intimidated by all that coffee lingo.  Still haven’t got that down. 

4.  Massages.  Oh yes they’re great.  And here in Thailand they’re everywhere and so cheap so I take full advantage of it.  I’ve had 2 in the space of 7 days!!

5.  My Children.  They bring out so much in me.  The good and the bad.  Yes,  I did say the bad.  I just love their innocence and their spontaneity.

Wishing you all a great Friday and a Wonderful Easter as we celebrate His Resurrection!

I love Starbucks too and have to admit I still don't get the darn lingo either. LOL.

I haven't had a massage in months and am thinking I really do need to get to one.

Sorry your week has been a hard one. May you have a nice, relaxed Easter holiday.

I know I should not envy but let me just say that I am so glad you get to have massages often. I just read an article about massages and there was a coupon for a reduced rate on a first time massage. I tore it out and am stuck it in my purse.

My week hasn't been so good. Let us hope our next week is better.

Thanks for sharing the proverb. It is so true that we have to have trials to become what God wants us to be.

That proverb is so true! Thankfully God has a purpose in everything and can use it for good, else we wouldn't be able to stand it.

I love Holy Week, too. And children so bring out so much in us -- both good and bad!! I understand!

Have a blessed Easter!

I had some amazing massages while I was in Thailand, those girls really know how to do it.

Thanks for your kind comments on my blog.

Karyn said...

great list....you are indeed blessed.

The photos of your little ones at the side of your blog are great! Your kids are adorable!

I NEED a massage :)

How is your father?

I am a constant supporter of Starbuck's, I must admit. Love my cuppa too.

Happy Easter! He Is Risen!
