Fab Five Friday

This is our first Fab Five Friday.  We encourage you to ponder your Fab Five.  Feel free to share the outcome of your positive reflection with us!  We truly are blessed by your feedback and participation.

(1)  This week I am grateful for...

Falen: Laura jumping on board with Upward Not Inward!  I am so grateful for such a wonderful friend that helps lift me up when I am down, encourages me, and keeps me level-headed!

Laura: Well, since Falen took mine.....being able to pray for friends who need prayer.

(2)  This week I enjoyed...

Falen: Working out... Yeah, it has been too long.  However, I am getting back into the groove, and it feels great!  The accountability with Allison certainly helps too!

Laura: Having a girls' day shopping with my mom, niece, and daughter.

(3)  This week I learned...

Falen: That our idea of reaching those who don't know God and reaching those who claim Christ and live as if he does not exist was in Romans (11:13-14), which adds to my adoration for Romans.  It really is my favorite book!

Laura: Again, since Falen took mine......I learned how to edit photos...courtesy of Falen!

(4)  This week I accomplished...

Falen: I accomplished two chapters of Romans.  Not simply reading, but diving (cross-referencing, defining, analyzing).  Loved every second of it. Also, P90X!!  Okay, not all of it.  But I started!! 

Laura: Sharing my testimony with the world.  I was very nervous, but it was well worth it!

(5)  I am looking forward to...

Falen: A peaceful yet productive weekend.  The To-Do List isn't in ink, so there is nothing urgent, but there are the usuals--like laundry, grocery shopping.  With the fantastic weather we have had, I have high hopes for this weekend.

Laura: My niece turns 18 on Tuesday!

Now that we have shared... It's your turn...
