Friday's Fave Five: Music, Mints, Ministry, Memes

Time for another edition of Friday's Fave Five! Thanks for visiting and reading the highlights of my week.
  1. I saw my doctor for my annual checkup, and there were no surprises.  It also didn't hurt that the nurse pointed out that I've lost eight pounds since my last visit. :)  It's all been in the last few weeks, really.  For most of the past year I've been losing and re-finding the same five.
  2. The food pantry ministry at our church is increasingly active.  Our congregation has been generous, and, as a result, a number of families have been blessed.
  3. I stumbled upon the new Mint Oreo Fudge Cremes at the supermarket this week.  These are SO good:  sort of a cross between an Oreo cookie and a thin mint candy.

  4. MercyMe.  I'm writing this in anticipation of the MercyMe concert we're attending tonight.  We've seen them in concert before, and they're always fabulous.  I know it'll be a wonderful time of worship.  (Postscript:  The concert did not disappoint!  But one of my favorite moments came just after the show ended.  As we were all crowding the aisles to get out of the auditorium, it would have been easy for people to get frustrated:  it was a slow process and a late evening.  But a neat thing happened.  The music over the loudspeakers was "Blessed Be Your Name," and about twenty percent of the crowd spontaneously started singing along.  Such a sweet moment.)
  5. Friday's Fave Five has become one of my favorite parts of the week.  It's a blessing to have a reason to look for the best parts of each week, and to read about the other participants' weeks.  Thanks to Susanne for hosting!


  1. FFF is one of my favorite parts of the week, too!

    Glad you had a good report from your doctor - and WTG oin the weight loss!

  2. Shame on you for telling me about those Oreos! :0) They're on my list for this week's shopping trip!

    It's always great to get a good report on those doctor visits.

    I love FFF, too! Have a great week.

  3. yeah on the 8 lbs!!!

    That is great about the food pantry it is such a blessing to have that to help out when needed!

    The oreo's look so yummy but I may eat them all ... lol

    OHhhh love Mercy Me, can't wait to hear all about it!

  4. aww, great post!
    mercy me?!

  5. Oh I love MercyMe!

    It's wonderful that your church is so giving towards the Food Pantry!

    Oh my, I'm going to have to have some of those oreos ...

  6. Oh my goodness... I will be hunting down those oreos with a vengence!

  7. Congrats on losing 8 pounds. That’s always encouraging. And your #2 fits in nicely with your # 1. Ha. Um, but # 3 counteracts it. :-) Those look SO good. I must try them soon. Oh, I love your Mercy Me story. I’ve been to one of their concerts and felt so blessed.

  8. That is great to hear about your church's food bank! :)

    I love Oreos !!!! I am not sure if I would like those though. I may have to try them!

    oooh I love Mercy Me! I've seen them three times and always was blessed! Casting Crowns is coming to our hometown next week!!

  9. Great list! and i know my youngest daughter would love those Oreos but...I'm trying to lost about 8 lbs so...none for me! I like Mercy Me but have never seen them in concert...sounds like the Lord really blessed your evening! Have a great weekend!!

  10. The Oreo cookies sound yummy! Hope you have a great time at the Mercy Me concert. They are really good, I've seen them a few times!

  11. Yeah for the 8 pounds!! I have to find those mint oreos. My husband would love them and he wouldn't have to worry about me eating them...I do not like chocolate mint.

  12. Those mint oreo cookies look delicious! And I agree, the Friday Favorites really are something to be thankful for!

  13. Ok, everyone go out and buy up all those oreos so I can't get to them.

    Congratulations on the weight loss. Stay away from the oreos, ha ha.

    Friday's have giving me a balance in my week as well, I look forward to it and try each day to remember (hard part) one event a day. I'll miss it when I take my road trip.

  14. I have officially added those Oreos permanently to my grocery list. My waistline thanks you. LOL.

    Yay for no surprises at the doctor's. That is something to really be thankful for. I had a no surprises visit too. Yipee.

    I'm so glad that FFF is a blessing in your life.
