Friday’s Fave Five

Some favorites from this week:

Watching the birds in our backyard.

Knowing that they aren’t starving with all the snow.

 Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? Matthew 25:26

Learning from some of my favorite Bible Teachers.

Pausing in the morning and starting the day reading God’s Word and some good devotionals.

Meditating and praying about things I’ve learned and needs that friends and love ones have.

Watching, Knowing, Learning, Pausing and Praying are all the good things that happened and that I’m thankful for this week.

The bonus because it was Valentine’s day yesterday was hearing from my kids and listening to Addy trying to say Happy Valentine’s Day and then enjoying a smoked prime rib dinner at Backyard BBQ and driving home on snow covered roads safely.

It started snowing as we left for the restaurant and is still snowing now so we are in for an interesting trip to Spokane on Friday. I’ll be late visiting this week.

  1. Ellen, I am so glad that you made a point of posting today since you are leaving for Spokane today. I always enjoy your posts! The bird that you have featured is beautiful…what kind is it? I’ve not seen one like it before…but then that could be because you and I live on opposite sides of our country. 🙂 Thank you for including Scripture…and doesn’t it make the day go smoothly when we’ve had that time of solitude with our Lord? Nothing like it!

  2. That bird sure looks like he eats well. Was going to ask what kind of bird it was but Eileen answered that question. 🙂
    Have a safe trip.

  3. Beautiful photos of our feathered friends, we too enjoy feeding them, our feeders are placed where I can watch as I do dishes, we can watch as we eat our meals too!
    Enjoyed your thankful list!
    Have a safe and blessed trip.

  4. What a nice week! I am glad you were safe in the snow and hope your trip goes well. I love that early morning time with the Word and some good devotional books, too. Such fun to hear from kids and grandkids on Valentine’s Day!

  5. I hope your journey to Spokane went well. Winter driving is such a mixed bag around here. Love the bird pictures and love that you mentioned “Pause” as one of your favorites. We tend not to do that much anymore.

  6. It is so much fun to learn all the new things about a new place–like birds. And snow, lots of snow.
    I hope you made it safely back home after that Spokane trip.
