Five on Friday - Inspiration

For my Five on Friday, I decided to post 5 things that inspired me this week.  

1.  The unseasonably warm weather we have enjoyed this week in my "neck of the woods."  I was outside in only a sweatshirt...it's February in Wisconsin.  The snow was gone, but like Winter in Wisconsin it returned today with 12" expected.

2.  At the beginning of the week, I posted about "just keep swimming" - in relation to my business and slow sales.  Well, I had a great week at my booths and even sold a huge cabinet I was not looking forward to moving to another booth...so YAY!  

3.  With the warm weather, I was able to go out in my pole building and dig for new inventory.  I had a pile of hangers from various estates in my way, they were a tangled mess so I made myself organized them.  I actually found $350 in a wallet that was sewn into a cover over one of those hangers.  I was so excited....like a treasure hunt.  This normally never happens, just so you know.

4.  My daily bible reading.  I find the more I read, the more His word is applicable to the world we live in.  I was reading in II Corinthians 13:13 and this really struck me; "...live in peace and the God of love and peace will be with you."  You all know that it has been a very contentious time here in the USA.  Everyone is at odds over everything....it's really difficult to even have discussions with people.  Anyway, I found comfort in that verse and happen to think...those rioting and protesting violently, are not at peace or living in peace...they won't find peace either.  I'm all for standing up for what you believe in - having a voice - showing it...with actions...but, peaceably.  

5.  My husband's work ethic and ability to fix stuff himself and save money.  He had a problem with his truck.  He looked on you tube and found other people with this same problem and they showed how to fix it.  He was able to fix it without taking it to the mechanic.  He does this all the time.  We had some bad news about our well...it is over 60-70 years old...anyway, he has figured out a way to "make it work (fingers crossed...)" until Spring when the professionals can dig in the ground....it's been warm, but it still is February in Wisconsin.

I hope you enjoyed reading my 5 this week.  I look forward to reading others in the links too.  

Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
