I am sure some of you have heard this trend of “High Five For Friday” posts; basically, it is just a post about what your highlights were for the previous week! Maybe you got to see a friend you haven’t seen in a while, heard a new song, went on a trip, etc. I first saw it on The Lauren Elizabeth Blog, which is a great and fun blog to read btw 🙂
So here ya go… here are some highlights from my week as well as some weekly favs that I discovered!
1. My husband and I saw a play that a couple girls from our youth group were in and it was fantastic; they performed Into The Woods. That was last week, but this week we decided to rent the actual movie and… we loved it!!! Not only did we love the humor and twists and turns, we have not stopped singing the music. I’m giving it another week before we need an intervention 🙂
2. Last weekend we began doing a total 360 makeover on our master bedroom and finally completed it this week! We are SO happy with the results. Don’t worry, I will be making a post soon on how we did it, before & after pics, and tips and tricks on how to save money while doing it!
3. On Tuesday, I got to have lunch with a friend from church who I haven’t got to really see in a while! It was great to get to sit and talk and experience some encouraging and true fellowship with a sister in Christ! I have decided I need more lunch dates like that 😉
4. I have started a new book called The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears, by Mark Batterson. Let me tell you, I am only on chapter 3 and it has already changed the way I think about prayer completely! It really has opened my eyes on the power of prayer and that God does hear me when I talk with Him! I highly recommend it just based on what I have read so far. I’ve heard Mark Batterson speak at a conference before and knew I had to check out his book.
Favorite Songs: Oceans by Hillsong, Worn by Tenth Avenue North, For the Cross by Bethel Music
