My friend Spence did a neat thing on his blog this week by listing the top 10 things he liked about his week. I think maybe I will start doing that, too., except I'll start with 5! This life we are living can be hard, frustrating and discouraging, and I tend sometimes to see only those things. BUT...there are a lot of wonderful, amazing things too, and I'd like to be able to focus more on those things. In writing them down each week, I can be continually reminded of what God is doing, and why we are here. So, for last week, here's the list:
1)Dinner at our Tunisian friend's restaurant-he opened early just for us and then served us (my in laws were here) a beautiful meal and played AMAZING drums for us. It was an evening I don't think I will ever forget.
2) The 50th birthday party of a sweet, sweet friend.
3) The after party that went until 4am (mentioned in the previous post)
4) Getting started in an LTG (Life Transformation Group) with the women I serve with at [iccp].
5) Beautiful weather. Still.
