The Week that Was

Viewing sunrises
 Watching the courage and determination of a precious friend...
Road-tripping and eating my lunch here while
embracing memories of days-gone-by (Winona Lake)...
 Applauding & appreciating the restoration work of my talented husband...
 Playing (and losing) a favorite game - Upwords...
 Celebrating the birthday (from afar) of one of our granddaughters....
 Taking in the colors--everywhere, the colors...
and so much more.
Lunch with Sue;
Bible study and lunch with Jannette, Christine, Ami, Joyce, 
Donna, Liz, Marilyn and Martina;
making a favorite autumn dessert;
preparing to host our Home Connection tonight;
several long-distant communications with our adult children;
and praying.  Always praying.
All this (and then some) plus the "normal" responsibilities and chores
comprised The Week that Was for me.


  1. Well I refer to my adult children as my adult children! I can't think of anything better,LOL!!
    My you've been bust Rebecca, sounds like a great week! Love Di ♥

  2. Sounds like a week that was rich with blessings, both big and small!
    (I don't have a clever name for "adult children" either.) :)

  3. Glorious week, my friend!
    Hats off to your precious friend. May she continue to be blessed and make advances.
    Hugs and love,

  4. I just saw that I said you've been bust! What the heck does that mean, LOL!! I meant BUSY. There I learned how to spell a new word!! Love Di ♥

    1. Well, "bust" is a word, too. With at least 2 meanings. After a busy week, I DO feel busted.....

  5. my kids will always be my kids no matter how old.
    i can see us at 85, talking to the kids on the phone.

  6. I love your week...well I still call my kids my kids...I might say the older ones and the younger ones...but even married they are my children...kinda like the Olympic commercials

  7. Love the view from the week that was...

    You crammed a lot of color into your days, friend. Color makes our lives unique, interesting, and wonderfully edenic. Keep looking for God's fingerprints in the week to come.


  8. What an interesting week! You always remind me to take pleasure in the moments in my day. The first picture is amazing. Just as you enjoyed the colors of your week, God enjoyed the painting of them!

  9. Sounds like a pleasant week. I refer to all of kids as the kids, as no matter how old they get they will always be my children :)


  10. Busy week with good memories.

  11. Hi Again............
    I am like a bad penney you just can't get rid of me!! lol
    Sounds like a wonderful week to me, those flowers there by Lake Winona are
    gorgeous, great place to enjoy lunch I must say.

    Yea we are like Bean we call them kids too! They will always be kids to us,
    isn't that just like a parent! lol

    Hugs and blessings, Nellie
    Okay, I am going now.................

  12. You're FAR from a "bad penny", Nellie! It's always a delight to visit with you. It WAS a wonderful week. (As is this one, too!) They've kind of cultivated a "wild" look along the lake. It was obviously intentional -- and I liked it...

    I'm still struggling with the "kids"/"children" designation. I think it's more a state of mind thing for me, I guess.
