Odds and ends Friday Five...

I have had a ridiculously busy week so apologies for the fact that this is rushed and even a bit late, but here goes, even in the busyness of the week what has

1. Inspired you
2. Challenged you
3. Made you smile
4. Made you cross/ made you want to weep
5.Kept you going?

  1. I'll have to play later- very heavy day today with funerals and other things :-)

  2. Thanks Sally, it was one of those weeks for me as well...and this F5 is just right.

    I played with two links and three photos

  3. Thanks, Sally! I'm with the consensus that this was an excellent topic and I played here

  4. Thanks for the prompts, it's been good to look back on the week

    LLM Calling

  5. I used this for my announcements this week, I hope it wasn't too much about me. Good prayer meme, I thought.

  6. I'm in, for the first time in quite some time.

  7. I'm not clever enough to have a blog. What inspired me and renewed me was the fact that I found out about a couple who have been faithful congregation members for years, who have been together for 20 years and have a son whom they have brought up to be a committed Christian. I also found out that they've never married because of a complication in her mother's will that restricted them and that 20 years ago they were banned from communion because of this. They will be receiving communion this Sunday and are so excited about it that they are in tears. I felt so inspired by the fact that I was able to be party to this healing.
    What made me want to weep is a child who keeps running away from home. He brother is in prison for selling drugs, her sister committed suicide under the influence of drugs and we have tried so hard with her, especially as she has remained a churchgoer. But now she seems to want to live on the streets . . . It is really sad. She is 14.
    What challenged me? A very strange funeral with such an uninterested aura that I could scarcely credit it.
