It’s Friday, which means Susanne is hosting her weekly Friday’s Fave Five carnival! Here are five of my favorite things from the past week…
1. Catching up with old friends. We were in Atlanta for the weekend (see #3 below) and enjoyed reconnecting with friends of my husband’s from high school, good friends that he also went off to college with and that were part of our wedding party more than two decades ago. A sign of true friendship is the ability to pick back up with great conversation and easy camaraderie.
4. A new year. I know there’s nothing magical about January 1 as opposed to December 31 but I like celebrating a new year because it reminds me of the truth that the Lord makes all things new and that for those of us in Christ the old has gone and the new has come, glory to His name! New beginnings and fresh starts aren’t unique to the first date on our calendar; rather the Bible asserts that the Lord’s mercies are new every morning, a promise that is increasingly precious to me as I consider all the uncertainties and changes 2012 may hold. He has strength for the day, new mercies each morning, and His unfailing love will never cease. What grace!
5. A new cut and color. It is, as I tweeted upon arriving home from the beauty shop today, one of life’s happy frivolities. I know it’s silly and temporal (so very temporal that I have to make the appointment every six or eight weeks!) but still a favorite.
What are some of your favorites this week? You can link up at Susanne’s as well as check out others’ favorites.
Happy Friday, friends!
