Think of it as a new spin on "Friday Favorites." These are favorites that actually mean something. How about them apples?
So . . . this is my first installment of my little things that help me cope in the midst of this crazy life.
1. CBS Bible study:
On Wednesday mornings I go to a Community Bible Study.
We are studying First Peter right now, and WOW . . . I. am. learning. a. lot.
We have only been studying for five weeks, but topics like - how to be a servant, how to submit to leadership, how to truly love your brother, why we suffer, how to deal with suffering . . . have been a part of the discussion.
Are you kidding me? Talk about hitting you right between the eyes. God is speaking. And I am listening.
It definitely helps me get through my week.
2. The Husband.
I don't talk a whole lot about my husband on the blog, and I don't really know why.
Maybe because my kids take up so much of my brain space that it is difficult to think about much else on a daily basis.
I know that is so backward, and I need to work harder at giving my husband more of my time and brain power.
But back to him . . . He is wonderful.
I caught a cold this week, and with my lifestyle colds just don't fit. I am too busy to take a day off, so I have to push through.
Last night before I fell asleep Tim was so sweet to ask me how I was feeling and to let him know if I had a fever or felt terrible. I am not really sure what he was going to do about it, but he knew that I would feel love just from the asking.
He is super sweet, even when I am not. What a guy.
3. Pumpkin cookies.
I don't really have to explain a whole lot with this one.
These are the best cookies ever. period.
I got the recipe from one of Peter (my brother)'s old girlfriend's mom. They are simply the best piece of a pumpkin baked good to ever grace these lips . . . or anyone else's for that matter.
