Friday's Fave Five - October 18

I haven't participated in Friday's Fave Five for quite a while.  Lately I've been having a rough time, so it's been a challenge to find five highlights of a week.  But this week I decided to give it another try.  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. My husband and I have joined a new small group this fall, and the last meeting was very good.  We've been watching videos of Charles Stanley talking about spiritual warfare, and it's been practical as well as inspiring.
  2. Our church has started a community kitchen ministry, and last Saturday was my family's first opportunity to serve.  It was more rewarding than I can express.
  3. My son went to a new-for-him youth group event and had a great time.  As a bonus, I got a little "me time" and my husband and I had some precious time alone.  We spent it the way married couples do:  we paid bills. :)
  4. My new doctor (well, since June) has been just wonderful.  She is in touch on a regular basis and really cares about how I'm doing.  I'm blessed to be working with a doctor and a counselor who are both determined to help me get well.
  5. Finally, I had a chance to see God at work.  I've been coordinating Thanksgiving baskets for our church food pantry.  This week we encountered an unanticipated need, and God pointed me to exactly the right resources to meet that need.  I just love the way He works things out like that!

  1. I'm sorry you've been a rough time Melissa - I'm glad you're part of small group. I find that fellowship always helps lighten the load. And sounds like you're in some great ministry too. I'm glad the Lord is blessing you in that. A doctor who understands and is compassionate, as well as skilled, is a tremendous blessing. Thankful for you.
    Hope you have a good weekend.

  2. What a great list of faves!!! I love my small group and my husband is looking for one too. I lead one for moms of teens and it's been a blessing. We did a Charles Stanley book last year and it was wonderful! So glad you got some couple time,

  3. girl... sounds like you had a great week... hugs that you find 5 things each week....
