Friday Five: Think About These Things Edition


Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. (Philippians 4:8, NRSV)

Friends, it's nearly Thanksgiving in the U.S. and it's the time of year when we are pressed to name things for which we are thankful. I want to offer a twist on the usual lists and use Paul's letter to the church at Philippi as a model. Name five things that are true, honorable, just, pure, pleasing, commendable, excellent or worthy of praise. These could be people, organizations, acts, ideas, works of art, pieces of music--whatever comes to mind for you.

Clearly, Molly the Blogging Dog belongs on such a list. Thanks to jo(e) for the great picture of Molly.

  23. Great thinking this! It helps get the idea that we need to look at these things more often than we likely do.

    My computer has been off-on and will shut down until I find the problem. Since it's going now...I'm taking time finally to share where
    I played

    Well, it ain't Lake Wobegon, but I did include a GK quote, as well as pictures of an ugly birthday cake and a literal "carrot top." Stop by and see for yourself!
