It’s Friday and time to join in Suzanne’s blessing list, Friday’s Fave 5!
As I mentioned in an earlier post, it’s been a little on the quiet side here at A Sparrow’s Home. But I made a promise – if the sun shone, I’d post. Sun on snow is wonderful photo and blog inspiration.
Yesterday the sun finally peeked out – even if it was only for a while.
So here I am – just in time to join Suzanne and all my favourite five girls!
Here’s my blessing list:
2. A sweet, hardworking husband ~ also a very tidy shoveller 🙂
3. A yummy smelling kitchen!
A lovely big batch of bread – very satisfying!
And my favourite childhood dessert – creamy rice pudding cooked slowly in the double boiler.
I was originally going to let this picture be a blog post on its own, with the caption,
“Help – somebody stop me!”
I’m sure I ate almost half the rice pudding all by myself. So good!!
Recipe coming soon.
4. Good books! Christmas presents ordered from a new, and now a favourite, online bookstore in the UK.
Great prices and free shipping!
I finished Sounds from Heaven, an informative and inspiring book about the Hebrides revival in 1949-1952.
And now I’m in the middle of Henrietta’s War by Joyce Dennys
5 And now for my final favourite of the week. It’s a little story starring our orange girl kitty, Mila.
Mila’s Snow Adventure
Tate, with love.
One fine day, Mela was outside helping her human shovel the walk,
when, all of a sudden, she heard a sound.
What could it be?
She looked to the left.
She looked to the right.
Finally, she looked up,
way up . . .
“Aha!” thought Mila, “One of those tasty pretty little feathered things!”
She crouched and leapt into the air without a sound – well, almost without a sound.
Ring a ling!
Oh, that dratted bell!
“Where did he go? Come back Mr Chickadee. I only wanted to play!”
Hope you liked the story Tate! 🙂
Thanks so much for coming by! Hope you enjoyed your visit.
Mission Team Update
Thanks for your prayers!
Sarah and the mission team arrived safely in Guatemala last night – a day late with snow delays and missed flights but they had a good meal waiting for them and a bed to sleep in, at Impact Ministries in Tactic, Guatemala.
Unfortunately all their luggage didn’t make it with them – 15 large hockey bags stuffed with supplies for the mission (blankets, sheets, baby clothes, shoes, medical supplies etc) and 6 personal bags are still somewhere in the air between Halifax and Guatemala.
We’d be grateful for your continued prayers. I’ll keep you updated.
