A Few of My Favorite Things


I’m disappointed.

I can’t find a scheduled showing of Sound of Music on TV this Thanksgiving.

Not that I ever actually watched it on Thanksgiving.

But it feels like the end of an era.

Beside the point, but… sigh… still…

Anyway…

One of the songs, that I sang ad nausium when I was a little girl, in the Sound of Music is “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things.” You know… raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

It’s a happy song. Maybe a little silly and frivolous. But it makes a good point.

When the dog bites, when the bee stings, or when I’m feeling sad, it does help to think of a few of my favorite things.

Kinda like… Paul telling us to think of things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely and admirable. (Phil. 4:8)

Hmmmm…

So here are a few of my favorite things…

THE WORD OF GOD

THE LOVE OF JESUS

MY DANIEL

PRECIOUS FAMILY & FRIENDS

THE ART OF WRITING

A GOOD LAUGH

TOUCHING (but not sappy) LOVE STORIES (seen LADYHAWKE?? OMGuggenheim…)

COLORADO MOUNTAINS, NEBRASKA SKIES, ARIZONA HEAT

FULL BODY MASSAGES

MY CAR, HONDA ELEMENT, a.k.a. PEARL

FRESHLY LAUNDERED BEDSHEETS

ANYTHING THAT GLOWS IN THE DARK

STICKERS (HAD A KILLER COLLECTION IN 6TH GRADE)

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS

RAINBOWS

BIG DOGS – LIKE ST. BERNARDS & GREAT DANES

PANERA BREAD PUMPKIN SPICE LATTES

Oh wow. This is great. I noticed no Sound of Music on TV either. Wizard of Oz is another one I'm looking for on TV during the Christmas season.

A few of my favorite things: My sweet hubby, my road bike, friends, soda, mercy, Jesus' sacrifice for me, writing.
