#ThreeThingsThursday – What made me smile this week…

Here is another Three Things Thursday where it is your goal to share three happy things you experienced in the seven days past. There is a new host for this weekly collection of happy, Natalie @ There She Goes just picked up the hosting duties from Nerd in the Brain. I met Natalie during the recent 2017 A to Z Challenge and I know she will do a fabulous job with this!



ONE – This past week was filled with ministry opportunities, including the delivery of items intended for our Belize mission trip in December. I got to work with a young man who will make his first international mission trip a full thirty years younger than when I took mine. I cannot wait to see how God uses him!


TWO – This same young man joined me as well as several others who worked to share faith in Christ at the NASCAR event held this past weekend at Bristol Tennessee’s famed “world’s Fastest Half-Mile”. We were able to share and pray with many about the concerns of this mortal life.


THREE – Between the two regularly scheduled Sunday services we were blessed to witness a six person river baptism. Five of the six who entered the water were teens, which is certainly a great statement about how they are being reached in our church. I was also encouraged that so many came out to support them.



What things are you thankful for in your life this week? Why not take a moment to be thankful for the blessings God has sprinkled into your life?

    Ask me Monday… going powwow this weekend, hopefully. As soon as I can scrounge up gas money. Anyway, if I can get there, it will be a weekend packed with 1. dancing prayers, 2. Singing/drumming praises, 3. Living the blessing of life with family not seen in a very long time. That’s my three happys for the next three days! Oh, forgot to mention sleeping under the heavens with the sounds of the night forest around me. 🙂

      Have you seen the phone commercial where the city couple go out for a “nature experience” and then wind up playing a “city sounds” so they could sleep?

        Monday, I’ll still be hearing the drums in my head. Hahaha. I may hear them for a week or more, then, I’ll pull out the cd. snickering giggles.

    Good choices, Joe. This is the kind of list that you don’t have to “check twice”.
