It’s Friday, time for Susanne’s weekly Fave Five, a list of five favorite things of the week! My favorites include:
1. The colder weather. It’s 36 right now at 12:29 pm. Not terribly cold by some standards (Susanne herself, for example, might consider 36 a heat wave) but it’s pretty cold for Alabama! I love it.
2. Getting my hair
cut trimmed. I’m growing my hair out in anticipation of my trip to Nicaragua (who wants to worry about a flat iron when a ponytail is so much easier?). As a result, I’m not going to the beauty shop as often as usual, something I miss. I love to get my hair cut!
3. Speaking of my trip to Nicaragua, I got my passport in the mail this week and suddenly it all seems so real! February 6 isn’t very far away! Will you pray for me and for our team? Support is so critical–monetary, yes, absolutely, but prayer most definitely…
4. Our first “real” budget meeting as a church. Oh, we had a budget last year but mainly we were just guessing since we had no real idea of what we would receive or spend. So Wednesday we held our first business meeting to discuss our upcoming fiscal year. Budget meetings have never been among my favorite things to do but this one was so exciting as we discussed our vision for missions and for being a part of the Lord’s kingdom work around the world.
5. Celebrating my number three son’s birthday TODAY! He’s TWELVE YEARS OLD! Wow! And, in anticipation of next week’s favorites, my number three son’s TENTH birthday is Monday! I can’t believe how fast my babies grow up…
