Entering the Season Five…

Looking back at the last 7 days and thanking God for all He is doing and allowing in our lives with Friday’s Fave Five. Here are my five.

1. Dear and I really enjoyed watching the eagles soaring and sitting in the trees right in our own backyard. This happened on Saturday.

2. The Right Hand of Fellowship: Many churchgoers are familiar with the term “the right hand of fellowship”. What was the purpose or significance of this act? By giving the right hands of fellowship, believers were agreeing to serve God together. On Sunday we became members of First Baptist Church of Colville. The photo above is of our new church.

3. Lana G! Looking back at her blog and stealing reviving some of my memories with her photos, collages and prayers. Lana used photos from our sister trip to Victoria on Vancouver Island back in 2011 for this collage. Lana is not blogging anymore. Insert sad face. 😦

4. Time spent with Miss Addy. Oh how I love to see what new things she is learning. Last night she showered me with hugs and kisses. Soon she will be 2 and we will be celebrating. On Tuesday she informed her mommy that she would be seeing Baba and Gramps in 2 days and even went to the calendar to count out the 2 days so mommy and daddy invited us over for dinner for Thursday. (Thanks Addy!) We chase each other and play “throw all the stuffed animals in the crib” and rock our babies. No new photos. When I pulled out my cellphone to try to catch a photo of her she let me know that I should put that phone in my pocket. Pocket…pocket…pointing…

5. Entering the season of Lent and preparation for the greatest celebration of the year, Easter. I shared this video yesterday and am reposting it here, too. Our sister in law Kelly, has spent hours developing these videos/art course of a visual walk through the season of Lent. I’ve already learned new things just by watching the first video which is available for free. I’ve signed up for the whole course, too, and am looking forward to completing it and being enriched by it this Easter season.

I’m linking up with Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for Friday’s Fave Five.

Later this morning we might drive to the Chewelah Golf Course to do some snowshoeing. We found out this week they are offering the golf course for snowshoeing and cross country skiing for free. We think the snow is beginning to melt so we want to get there before that happens. I’ll take my camera and hopefully share some photos of what we see. What are your plans?

  1. You have had a week rich in blessings, Ellen. How wonderful that you can watch the Eagles from your backyard. And I love Addy’s perspective on phones…and how she got you a yummy meal at her house this week! Smart little girl is that Addy!

  2. What a pretty church campus! Congrats on,your membership!

    Granddaughter is precious! You must have so much fun with her,

    I’ll check out that video!!

    Happy weekend.

  3. How wonderful to have found a church where you can serve and grow! I do remember Lana posting! I think we used to do some of the same link-ups – I don’t remember now. Yay for time with grandchildren. I’m rejoicing in not having any scheduled plans for the weekend. We’ve had a lot going on the last week, so it’s nice to have a day with nothing on the calendar! I might do some ironing while catching up on some TV viewing and run out to the store.

  4. Thank you for sharing the video, I’m going to check out the series. Two-year-olds are the best company! I love seeing bald eagles. Congratulations and blessings on your new church:)

  5. Yay for a church fellowship! It is good to find a great church. I love that you have eagles soaring over your home. What a thrill! Addy is so cute and smart as a whip. I always enjoy seeing her here even when I am unable to comment and want very much to say, “That Addy!”

  6. Congratulations on becoming a member of your church! (We had all of our newest members come forward today and we prayed over them.) Cross country skiing on a golf course, what a great way to use the course in the ‘off season’! Can’t wait to see your pictures.

  7. So glad you found a new church home and family to belong to! How awesome that you have eagles to watch right in your own backyard. Addy makes me smile.

  8. I am super late getting around to reading everyone’s FFF. I blame a super busy weekend and then a virus that I caught somewhere during the busyness.
    I saw you have MORE snow. More snow-more showshoeing? That’s a nice offer from the golf course. I am still walking (with The Professor) and occasionally we walk on portions of our golf course.
    I’m glad you’ve found a church home.
