  Happy Friday! Hopefully, you all had a wonderful set of holidays and are easing into the new year with the promise of new beginnings. As I write this, 2021 is off to a bit of a rocky start (first major understatement of the decade). I am prayerful, though, that we can all come togetherContinue reading “5 Things: Happy 2021!”

Advent 2020: Day 20

  Good morning! Today is Go Caroling Day and the first thing that came to mind for me was a certain scene from Love Actually where the Prime Minister (Hugh Grant) is coerced into caroling by three adorable little girls. The expression on his face is priceless when his driver starts singing, too! It makesContinue reading “Advent 2020: Day 20”

Advent 2020: Day 6

  Good morning! Hopefully, you all are able to get some rest this weekend and stay warm as applicable.  Today, I wanted to share a short film/advertisement for Chick-fil-a! Tempered with a dose of humor, \”The Spark\” reminds us all to be a light in the \”dark\” times that we are experiencing and beyond.  Let\’sContinue reading “Advent 2020: Day 6”

5 Things: Baking Quake Edition

  Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week like the sweet family who had a special reunion recently. It\’s a great reminder that we still have servicemen and women overseas to pray for.

  Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week like the marathon runner who got a little help to finish the race. That\’s one a heck of a good deed!

5 Things: Blockbuster Pancakes Edition

  Happy Friday! Hope that you all had a great week like the treasure hunter who struck gold… um… bronze in Scotland.

The pieces were probably fromContinue reading “5 Things: Blockbuster Pancakes Edition”

5 Things: Salisbury Steak Cactus Cake Edition

Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week like these students in England with an incredibly thoughtful teacher.

5 Things: Unsolved Wedding Dough Edition

Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week especially as an effective COVID-19 treatment and vaccine seem even closer than before.

Well, despite all the ongoing madnessContinue reading “5 Things: Unsolved Wedding Dough Edition”

5 Things: Contempt of Spam Edition

Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week like the folks who caught sight of the Neowise comet. There\’s still time to see it, by the way, and test out that snazzy nighttime setting on your camera! Well, even comets are not your thing, it\’s Friday. Woohoo! Time to retire this scorching hot weekContinue reading “5 Things: Contempt of Spam Edition”

Happy Friday! Hope you all had a great week or at least have some fun plans for the weekend.
