Friday's Fav Five

Live to Tell the Story

1. We had a great 4th of July weekend. We got a lot done on Saturday then had cook outs on Sunday and on Monday. Both were good times.

2. We got my daughters haircut over the weekends and it is really cute short. I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out but I like and so does she.

3. We have had a ton of thunderstorms. I LOVE thunderstorms.

4. My gladiolas are blooming. Just a few but still they are there. I was afraid they had been crowded out by the day lillies and weren't going to bloom at all. I really need to thin that area.

5. We started our online bible study for the summer. I am glad to be talking about a book I have liked as much as I like "Discerning the Voice of God" by Priscilla Shirer.



  1. We've had some incredible thunderstorms this week, too. Love the title of the book on your sidebar:) Have a good weekend, Shell!

  2. I love thunderstorms too but we don't get good ones out here in the San Francisco area, I miss them!

  3. Hi Shell, I am interested in knowing more about your online study. is it through your church or Priscilla Shirer ministry? I want to do something like this withh my church ladies.

    Gladiolas are so gorgeous. Glad that at least a few came up this year.

    How fun that the new haricut turned out so well. Both my teen nieces got their hair cut really short too. It is much easier to care for on account of swim team team. And it is so darling. I can just imagine how darling your girl looks too.

  4. We've had a few good thunderstorms too.

    I loved shorter hair in the summer when I was a kid. So much less hassle and much cooler.

    The online study sounds very interesting.

  5. You either love or hate thunderstorms. I love them, too.
    I'm sure you're going to enjoy your Bible study!

  6. We don't get many thunderstorms but it is always exciting to hear the thunder and see the lightning flash...
    Enjoy your study and have a great weekend!

  7. Susan- the study is through my church. This is the first one we have tried to do online so it is kinda trial and error but so far so good. This is the second study we have done by Priscilla Shirer though and we loved the first one. If you want to see what we are doing you can check it out at

  8. We had thunderstorms yesterday - the LOUD kind. I wish my sons enjoyed them, they are so amazing to me.

    I'm glad you had a nice 4th of July weekend, some pretty Gladiolas,and that your daughter looks cute, too!

    Enjoy your Bible Study!
