How Fun! Vol. 8

How Fun! Volume 8  Link Up Party

“How fun!”  I find myself exclaiming this many times throughout the week.  Here are just a few things that touched me or made me smile:

Light bulb filament.  Visit for beautiful photography and inspirational memes.

What I’m reading:
Our small group has begun reading Taste, My New Life Without Food by Gordon Meier. Pastor Meier was our pastor when we attended his church in Ohio. He is an amazing man of God that is bearing up under an unusual condition. You may request a free copy of that book by clicking the link.

A blog post that touched me:
Edie at Life in Grace wrote a post titled On Giftedness and Calling (Five Clues to Your Calling).  Even if you are already secure in your calling, you may appreciate this extra bit of encouragement. I  certainly did!

What we are eating next week:

  • Saturday Crockpot 15-bean soup, corn bread
  • Sunday Cabbage rolls, mashed potatoes (I’ve never made cabbage rolls before.  Wish me luck!)
  • Monday Whole roast chicken, mashed potatoes, cooked carrots (from raw)
  • Tuesday Homemade chicken noodle soup
  • Wednesday Pizza
  • Thursday Spaghetti, broccoli (frozen)
  • Friday Paleo crockpot chili

Baking this weekend: Oatmeal cake with coconut icing.

Psalm 42:8 By day the Lord directs His love, at night His song is with me-A prayer to the God of my life.Spread a little Light this week!  Share this above meme on your favorite social media site, or email it to a friend. Click the image to see it at full size.

Have a great weekend!  Remember Philippians 4:8.  “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.”

    Hey friend, how fun that you are doing a link up! I’ve been wanting to write more “fun” posts, and I know that I can link up anything, but I am hoping to begin participating next week with my own style of fun. In the mean time I will share! Blessings!

    The link up is a great idea! I linked my blog, and now I’ll have to blog more often. Dawn, I will look at yours ~ I must find something that works that doesn’t make me feel like a pretzel all tied up!
