The sinus headaches have lifted and I'm beginning to feel healthy again.  I don't care what people say about Facebook, I've got great friends who pray for me there.  I suppose I'd have them without FB, but it sure is a nice place to hang out once in awhile.

Now that I'm not on cold medicine, I can enjoy one of my husband's perfectly mixed Seven and Sevens.

My son hit up a library sale on the way home from school, bagging about twenty books for $6.00, including hard cover short story anthologies, a like-new Anne of Green Gables for his sister, a Garrison Keillor paperback for me, an FDR biography for his dad and a dozen or more classic titles.  What better way to begin a Friday evening listening to my daughter read aloud L.M. Montgomery's quaint story.

A friend introduced me to Red Mountain Church music this week.  It's some of the best new arrangements of traditional hymns for congregational singing I've heard.  Beautiful melodies, well-crafted lyrics.  Joy.

The way my soul grows stronger when I spend time praying with friends, like the time I spent this morning crying, praying, laughing, and even a tiny bit of cursing.

Lunch with a friend today.

One week from tomorrow, we get to hang out at the pumpkin farm with all of my siblings and most of their significant others (including a new guy we're all pretty excited about) for my brother's 38th birthday.  We're so excited to be with them, we can hardly wait!
