Catching Up

I missed last week's FRIDAY FAVE FIVES  Just a really really busy week.  But there were so many blessings in the past two weeks.  What happened?

1.  One day we met our long time friends at Reagan Presidential Library to spend the day touring the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit.  It was wonderful and overwhelming.

2.  While I was waiting in line in the (Ladies Room), a woman looked at me and stated, "I know you!"  She did!  We were friends at church a long time ago.  She recognized me!

3.  AND! She and several friends were at the library celebrating another friend's birthday!  Yes, I know her, too!  What an amazing blessing!

4.  I've been doing a bit of decluttering and passed on several skeins of yarn to my friend who has a weaving studio (here's the link to her facebook page:  Threadbender Textiles).  And she had a bag of sock yarn for me!  I THINK I might have come out ahead of the decluttering, but I'm not quite sure.  But I call it a win-win.

5.  While I was culling my yarn, I found a couple of knitting projects I had forgotten about.  Two hats.   Now I have a couple of projects to finish quickly.  (How do I manage to bury them in a bunch of other yarn?)

Bonus.  I love this quote from Elizabeth Elliot which my pastor's wife posted on facebook: 

 "To pray 'thy will be done', I must be willing, if the answer requires it, that my will be undone."  

TRUTH!

I've never visited a presidential library, but Reagan's would be the one I'd most want to see. How neat to come across old friends that way! The yarn exchange does sound like a win-win. I like that quote, too.

Such a beautiful quote! I would LOVE to visit the Reagan library. The Leonardo exhibit was at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science recently. I was fascinated and surprised by all the things he accomplished. How fun to run into friends unexpectedly!

That is the second time I’ve read that quote this week. I’m going to have to be on the look out for what the Lord may be undoing in my life. Hmmmm....
