Friday's Fave Five: A Sweet Week

Yay! Another Friday, another Friday's Fave Five, thanks to our lovely hostess Susanne!

I've had another good week, so the challenge was to choose only five highlights.  Thanks for reading my list!
  1. My dear bloggy friend Alexis sent me a care package with her homemade caramels and a thoughtful note.  What a sweet surprise!
  2. My family took a day trip to Ephrata Cloister.  The weather was perfect and the destination was very interesting.  I posted about this on Wednesday, so you can read more here if you're interested.
  3. Wednesday was just an all-around good day.  I attended a Bible study and visited with a friend.  We even had a pleasant surprise at my son's dental appointment:  a new dentist was in the office, and he was excellent.  He was eager to answer Mooseman's questions and even encouraged him to think about becoming a dentist.
  4. This devotional--The Prison of the Past--from Dr. Charles Stanley (In Touch Ministries) was such a blessing to me!  If you're a Christian who struggles with past wrongdoing, I encourage you to take a minute to read it.
  5. I received the moon beaded necklace that I won from Greta and Elle at Take Two Reviews.  I totally stole their photo of it because it was easier to do that than to get up, get the camera, and take my own picture.  (Wow, how lazy does that sound?! LOL!)
What were the best parts of your week?  Leave a comment, or write your own Friday's Fave Five post and link it up to Susanne!


  1. Friends caramels and care packages what a wonderful post.

    I like when Wednesdays prove a good day especially half way through the week like that, usually dentist and pleasant surprises are not in the same sentence.

    What a nice win moon beads.

  2. I love getting packages that are surprises in the mail! yay for your friend! and what a pretty necklace!
    Enjoy your weekend!!

  3. Awakened at midnight for a two-hour church service? Wow! That's really interesting but I'd rather just listen to the story or watch it on film if there's one :) Ephrata Cloister intrigues me. I've been thinking of finding some devotional to read before anything else I do everyday. Thanks for mentioning Prison of the Past. You got a pretty moon beaded necklace!

  4. Sounds like a beautiful week! I have been cleaning all week so I am not sure if you can consider that the "best part" of my week but it sure does look a whole lot better around here ;)

  5. So glad you had a good week!! :) I love Dr. Charles Stanley! My husband got me his Life Principles Bible 2 years ago. He has some great wisdom to share.

    I will have to read about your trip!

  6. It sounds like a wonderful week, indeed, Melissa! Homemade caramels? Yummy! What a treat to find that in the mail.

    The day trip to the Cloister sounds very interesting. I like those wall lamps that you took pictures of too. I'm always up for visiting historical places. I find them so interesting. What a different life than what we live today. I totally would have not have made it there just for the fact of the wood block pillow!

  7. glad you had another good week!
