Friday Five

I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19, NRSV

As we near the end of the long journey toward Easter, a busy time for pastors and layfolk alike, I ponder the words of Isaiah and the relief and refreshment of a river in the desert.

For this Friday Five, name five practices, activities, people or _____ (feel free to fill in something I may be forgetting) that for you are rivers in the desert.

so this one was hard for me cause i do have some great rivers in the dessert

1. My friends... i have the most wonderful group of friends i easily take up all five spots with names of my friends but it would mean leaving people out.

2. Music... my mood determines the music i turn on and normally i feel much better

3. Worship... being in community to worship God 9 times out of 10 leaves me feeling renewed and refreshed

4. Cooking... i really enjoy it. some times i even enjoy doing it for myself but it is much more fun to cook for friends

5. Grey's Anatomy... ok this one is a little superficial but that one hour of TV a week when i forget about school and the world is just a great release

Editors Note: There are two big ones that I missed, writting both this blog and in my journal, and giving and getting hugs!

First, a belated Happy Birthday!
I think a TV show definitely counts.

Great play! I could have listed Grey's, too. And hugs...oh, what a great one!

mompriest said...

Yes. I too have become a Grey's fan...Good play and thanks for sharing!

Sally said...

:-) for Greys ... and we all need a bit of mindless relaxation every now and then- for me it is Desperate Housewives!!!

Deb said...

Yes, worship pulls me out of the temporal and into the eternal...

nice list!


Janice said...

I could have listed cooking as well - there is something about combining ingredients into a satisfying nourishing meal (or not so nourishing as the case may be) for others that energizes me. :)

Enjoyed reading your play!

Happy Birthday!

I'm entirely not surprised how many of us are answering music and writing.

Great list!

Great list and good on ya for including Grey's Anatomy, because I'd say it's not the show that's the river, it's the hour to unwind. I like it myself.

And cooking! *slapping forhead* how could I forget that?

Great list.

wonderful play!

so what did you think about last night's grey's?

we should start a grey's blog for all of us revgal grey's fans.

Not into Grey's but I know what you mean. For me, it used to be Star Trek-TNG. My dog enjoyed them, too.
