God stop Friday!

It's Friday and it's time to look back on some great things God has done for me this past week.
I saw this over at my friend Teri's blog via Susan's blog so I thought this was a sweet way to reflect on God's attention to detail in the everyday life of me.

Thank you Patty for hosting this special time of reflection.

This is where I find myself today. I thank you Jesus for my heart that is full of so many things right now. I thank you for all that you have blessed me with. I pray that I honor you in all that I say, think, and do.


Outside my Window....is a beautiful morning with a wonderful breeze blowing. The sun is out and i'm ready for the day!

This morning...I got up early and sat outside with my sweet dog, Bailey, and watched her play.
I could tell by the breeze and the sun up it would be a beautiful day! And, I've got sleeping kids upstairs that just warm my heart to pieces.

I am thankful for...this family of mine....friends that are old, new, and through this blog. And, our good health. My wonderful church. The weekend of baseball that is yet to come.

From the kitchen...comes nothing but coffee right now. And, I'm picking up donuts for the kids and there is hardly anything in the fridge....it's Friday so therefore it's bare around here!

I am creating...now, that is a hard one. Hmmmmm....I'm creating hope in our precious little girl, Sophia, who is in Africa and we adopted her through Compassion Int'l. I'm writing her today.
May those pages ooze with love and hope for this sweet young girl.

I am going...to watch one son play baseball all weekend long. I'm one on one with my 2nd son and it is so much fun to have that alone time with him. The other 2 boys will be playing in a different complex with their dad.

I am wearing...pj's. Its early.

I am reading...John 3:16 by Max Lucado. Very good book.

I am hoping...to finally empty the kids backpacks from the end of the school year. It's only been 2 weeks. Thats not too bad is it?? And, I think I only have 1 child to go so it's really not that bad.

I am hearing...the "Today" show and the keys of my computer. Thats it.

Around the house...are my kids, their stuff, and the sense of peace and joy.

One of my favorite things...my bible study girls...I miss them tremendously. I'll be back in the Word starting next week. Thank goodness.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week...Well, if you know me and our kids....then, you know come weekend time....it's all about the baseball girls!! I'm excited about it though. Its gonna be hotter than hot though.

I truly hope you have a glorious weekend whatever you are doing and wherever you may find yourself. I keep you covered in prayer. You all mean the world to me.

Hugs and blessings,
Fran

I would have to imagine that we were both sitting outside at the same time this morning. :o) The breeze was wonderful and the bluest of blue sky and it's HOT!!!

I loved how you wrote your post. Reading about your baseball weekends remind me of all the years we spent at the ballfield. Well, it was softball but we played in tourneys everywhere. Fun times! I would enjoy so much to be a part of your Bible study group. I know you all have a great time together and in God's Word. Speaking of empty fridge, here too! I am going to go to the grocery store this morning. Not sure of my plans yet but it is CMA Music Festival time this weekend and Nashville is crowded. It has been a busy week and I would love to relax and do nothing. I cleaned out the garage this week and found a book I had lost, Heaven by Randy Alcorn. Great book!! I think I will read that and go from there. Knowing us we will go see a movie.
Have a great weekend and thank you for sharing your heart and GodStops with us today!
Love,
Patty

Fran,
Just got caught up on all your posts (been busy with teen problems) and the church thing rings true with me as well....you go out there and tell them what you wrote! Of course, in truth and love sprinkled with grace. I know God will give you the opportunity and the words. You go girl!
Blessings,
Dana

I have yet to even take my son's backpack out of the backseat of my car yet! UGH!
You know what I am thankful for?????

Friends like you whom I have never seen, yet love like they were "real and in person" friends.

Awe, Fran!
I loved this post! It made me think about the good old days when the kids were here. I'd give anything to clean out a backpack. Isn't that the strangest thing you've heard? I'm thankful for you and your heart for God! Much love and blessings your way!

What a great post of reflection of what you have and where you are. I hope the baseball games were fun. Sounds like you are as busy with baseball as we are soccer. Have a great week.
