Friday Fave Five

1. Easter. He is risen. He is risen indeed.
But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they went to the tomb, taking the spices they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they went in they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. Luke 24:1-3
My church saw 1000 people come and celebrate Jesus' victory over the grave. It was a nice day for our huge production. It all went smoothly - from the Sunrise Service, to our main service, to the fun for kids, the bbq and baptism. Fantastic.
2. It's strawberry season. Grom loves them. They are a treat I'm happy to give him. Now is the best time to get 'em. Big, sweet, flavorful and packed with vitamin C.
3. My favorite shirt. You can barely see it in the picture. It's blue stripes and has a neckband that's a lovely shade of orange. I haven't been able to wear it for a long time, but I wore it today! The picture is from when Grom was about a year old. It's fun to pull "new" clothes out and finding they fit.
Similarly, when we were packing and moving our stuff for the remodel, I found a pair of jeans in a box. I'm sure I had put them away as my "fat jeans" - you know... that pair that I'd put on when I've lost all my weight to show how huge I used to be. Scarily, I got even heavier and now I have a bigger pair of "fat jeans". Here comes the good news... those jeans I found... they are too big!
4 and 5. My spa day... especially the facial and the massage with hot rocks. I'm relaxed and ready for anything. I'm thinking everyone should get a spa day after E-week. I'm going to start saving some money for next year.

It's great to look back on the week and think about my favorite things. Big thanks to Susanne at Living to Tell the Story for encouraging me and others to do it through Friday's Fave 5.


  1. I've never had a hot rock massage but have heard they are wonderful.

    We've been enjoying lucsious strawberries too although they are not local, they are so sweet this year! I made strawberry pancakes yesterday for the dayhome kids and they loved it.

  2. Yes, strawberry season is wonderful!

    I'd love a spa day, especially with any kind of massage...

    Have a great weekend!
