7 Quick Takes Friday

I'm finally feeling soooo much BETTER!!! Double Pneumonia is really serious stuff & I hope to NEVER have it again. I got a flu shot and a pneumonia vaccine, so hopefully those will help to keep me healthy.
Number 5 in this post really hit home for me. I'm 42 and after years of trying to control my fertility, I've come to the realization that I am NOT the one in control.
This sermon touched me. I'm also enjoying the Daily Episcopalian. My church has a website, but no blogs. These blogs really make me feel connected to others of my faith in a new and rewarding way. A great new website was launched on Ash Wednesday, I haven't had much time to explore it, but I'm looking forward to spending some time there in the next few days.
My friend Kirsty had some GREAT tips this week on Surviving until Spring. And my friend Missy has been counting down the days until Spring. I'm ready for Spring!!! My friend Kim spent 4 days this week snowed in with no electricity...I don't envy her at all.
Hubby started a blog this week. He has had an interest in brewing his own alcohol for many years and is currently working on a hard cider, should be interesting to see how it turns out.
My friend Janet had quite a few interesting things on her Money Jar blog this week....lots of coupons and free samples.
Next week seems to hold lots of promise. Hubby should be able to drive himself to work, the kids and I are all finally feeling WELL and the weatherman is calling for "springlike" weather. I'm already starting to think about what I want to do for my favorite blog carnivals and I'm hoping to get some cooking done for my Food Blog and upload all the pictures off my camera.
This is the first time I've participated in 7 Quick Takes, head over to Conversion Diary to check out the other entries.

Thanks for the link love. And re: your number 2, I have for years thought I was leaving my fertility completely in God's hands but only in the last year have I begun to realize that there are many more layers to that than what I first thought. And realizing that at times I was trying to take control of it myself. Now that I am having to control my fertility for medical reasons I am torn and wondering how on earth to proceed with it all. I know God is going to work it all out for me but for the life of me I'm not seeing the big picture right now. Thanks for sharing that though. It's an interesting subject that I've given a lot of thought to lately.
