Friday five ~ August 9

Friday again!  Let's see what I can share this week:

1.   Good outreach with our church at a community Market Day on Saturday.  We gave out bottled water, balloons, books and more.  A mom from our church did face painting for the kids and some folks played music.  It was lovely to hear the old hymns played by guitars, concertina and an Irish penny whistle, wafting over the town common.

And that sausage sub prepared and served in the firehouse by the town's volunteer firemen was pretty scrumptious too.

2.  Ice cream date with my hubby on Saturday night.  "Let's go out for ice cream first, then come home and have supper."  What does it say about me that I agreed to that?

3.  An enjoyable outdoor a capella concert in the company of friends on Sunday afternoon.

4.  Seeing God answer prayer in a difficult situation this week.  One of those dilemmas where one might need to be part of the solution, yet God provided from a totally unexpected source.

5.  A lovely phone chat with my sweet daughter in Nevada on Tuesday.  That's Joanna below, with her hubby at Craters of the Moon National Monument in Idaho, summer 2017.

And I guess that is it for this week.  Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!


  1. What lovely Friday Fives, you have shared, God is so faithful, I am always so amazed at how he works when we don't see anything until the end result.

    Your daughter and husband are a lovely couple, we have children who live in other states and we always enjoy hearing about what they have been doing.
    I think ice cream before dinner is a fun idea.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Oh we just stopped for an ice cream cone this afternoon in Natchitoches La where we are spending the weekend. I had salted caramel. Temps are to be 100 degrees this weekend...oh my come on fall.

  3. Your five things are all so lovely. Thank you for sharing the good in your life!

  4. You did have a lovely weekend and week! Lots of blessings! I love to hear about the good things happening. Oh, and I’d totally go for ice cream first, too!

  5. Smart girl! (That’s what eating ice cream before supper means. Smart husband for suggesting it.)

    Wonderful that God came through again! He always does. ☺️
