Savor Seven Saturday {8/25}

Once again, we find ourselves at the beginning of another weekend.  Thank God, because this was a pretty long, full week - (one child started school and the other started a sinus infection). Or maybe it's because I've changed a few of my habits...anyway, I'm linking up with Lisa and her Savor 7 Saturday Meme.  I really enjoy thinking about my week and being able to recount some of the highlights. 

Here we go...
Scripture - This week I started the #HelloMornings early morning challenge, and I decided to use their Bible Study for the fall.  It's called Kept and it's based on 1Peter.  The thing that was really striking me this week as we studied the man - Peter, was that he was a man.  Just like us me, he was a little "thick," BUT God still used him - and for miracles!!  God truly is no respecter of persons - he is willing to use any of us who are WILLING!

I also started the Bible in 90 Days program.  At the end of day 6 I'm caught up and moving forward.  Reading 12 pages of Scripture a day has been a bit of a challenge, but it's been awesome!

Storyteller - This week, well, last weekend mostly, I read a book called The Harbinger by Jonathan Cahn.  There are too many words to describe it.  It's eye opening, bone chilling, exciting, scary, and the list goes on and on.  I agree with everyone who has already reviewed it - if you're an American, you need to read it!

Social - This week, we had plans to get together with another couple from church but it's been cancelled twice.  We are scheduled for next Monday, so hopefully....  Today we are spending the day with Hubs' Mom & Dad.  They are celebrating their 50th anniversary!!

Silly - I fell through the back door.  Thursday morning as I was leaving for work I managed to fall through the screen door.  Yep, you read it right...I fell right through it!  Bent it up and everything.  I can't even begin to tell you how I did it, but as sure as anything, there I was, laying. on. the. screen.  Drummer said, "that was like something you see on America's Funniest Videos."  Yeah.  Something like that.  I'm still pretty sore, but I'll live.  The door, that's another story, it's functional, but we need to look into getting a new one.

Snapshot - This is a shot from Drummer's first third day of school.  He started the 8th grade this week.  He attends a Charter School so he started about 2 weeks earlier than everyone else, so that irritates him, but I think he's going to have a great year!!

Sips - Hot Tea - Green with Raspberry and Gogi.  What with waking up at dark o'thirty, I'm needing some incentive to open my eyes and keep them open.

Sweets - This week I discovered a lovely new chocolate candy...mmmmmm!  Simple Pleasures...

So how was your week?  Enjoy your weekend!!
