I like to make lists. Of any kind. And I make my friends do this thing, called "Top Five."
It's basically of their list of their top five things from the day or week.

It's a sweet way to hear what's really on their hearts.

My top five:

1.) My husband cleaning out the bathtub (and the drain) so I can take a bath that actually makes me cleaner. For some reason, our bathtub would not stay clean, no matter how many times I scrubbed it. Clarke cleaned out the drain and discovered a big glob of dirtiness left from the last people who lived in our apartment before us. TMI, I know. Oh, but how great a clean tub is.

2.) Coffee dates with one of best friends. We will drive 40 minutes to get to a starbucks. Sounds a little extravagant. It's our special treat and the only coffee place that stays open late enough for us. The starbucks on fairfield in Fort Wayne is our favorite. We talk about Jesus' redemption of our lives, sing to old songs we hear playing, and I drink a nonfat-with-whip-white chocolate mocha (or an iced mocha) while she sips a cinnamon dolce latte. Her love for the Lord pours over on me. Precious 10 p.m. coffee time.

3.) Helping my MIL paint her kitchen. She is a busy woman. And a strong woman. And I love helping her with anything. And she's also stinkin' funny, so it makes it a pretty easy choice.

4.) Selling just enough stuff in our garage sale to make just the right amount of money to pay a medical bill. Hallelujah!

5.) Look up the song, "Before the Throne of God Above." It blesses my heart.

What are your top 5??
