7 blessings. 7 experiences, tastes, smells, delights. 7 ways to share, encourage, inspire. 1 for each day of the week. Join me? Write your own post sharing 7 blessings from your week ~ link it up anytime this weekend. If you don't have a blog, share your blessings in the comments - I'd love to hear them!

Savor 7 {Saturday}

SCRIPTURE: I'll share the Scripture again that gave me my One Word for 2013 - it's a good one for me to remember!

2 Peter 1:5-7
But also for this very reason, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.
STORY TELLER: I have to recommend my lovely friend Katie Tevis to you! She's back writing on her blog and is about to start sharing an amazing series there on Mondays. If you are divorced, or are experiencing marriage struggles or know someone going through a divorce, you'll want to read Katie's series. She's been through a painful journey, but God has blessed her through it all and she wants to share her message with other women. Please take time to read her Intro post and share with any friends or family who you think would be blessed by this series.

SOCIAL: I think my only "social" outings this week involved helping a friend move and being out and about with my hubs most of the day yesterday - LOL. But hey - I've been enjoying the last of the Christmas break. Routines start back up on Monday when kiddo goes back to school and life gets back to normal around here. Did you have any fun social outings? Do you do anything exciting for New Year's Eve {our family just hangs out at home}?

SILLY: I got back to doing FB Friday Fun on my Facebook page yesterday and plan to continue it on Fridays. Be sure to stop by there on Fridays to guess a mystery cover photo, answer a trivia question, check out a recipe and more! It's kinda fun! :) And it's not too late to go and guess as I won't post the answers until tonight {Saturday night, West Coast, so late for you East peoples!}.

SNAPSHOT: Double rainbow that we saw on our way home after Christmas! And the second half of the full rainbow. So pretty - can't capture it too well with a phone through a moving car, but I did what I could. Rainbows are such a pretty blessing from God {and a wonderful reminder of his promise}!

SIPS: My recipe creation - the Mocha Oatmeal Frappe - has come in handy more than once! I've had a couple mornings that I didn't have enough time to have breakfast or coffee before heading out the door so I whipped up the frappe & added some protein powder and took my drink out the door!

SWEETS: Get them out of the house now, right?! LOL! I ate the last candy cane yesterday, so that's good. But I need to whip up something sweet today for a church banquet. The good thing about that is that it goes out of the house and gets shared!

  1. Well I guess Christmas is officially over at your house, you at the last candy cane. LOL!

    And I'm ready to get back to a "normal" schedule over here.

    Big your secret FB picture baffles me every time size hugs to you!

  2. Thank you for the mention. That rainbow is breathtaking!

  3. Beautiful picture of the rainbow! As a child, I was totally fascinated by the fact that the rainbow was a promise from God that He wouldn't ever flood the earth again. I remember being so amazed when I first heard that, lol!
