Five Things Friday (#50)

We made it to Friday, y’all! Give yourselves a pat on the back and then look at these five things:

1. This delightful twitter thread

This thread contains all the reasons I love going to the movies. It’s such a unique experience of sharing something with strangers. Here’s my contribution:

2. Clare Elsaesser on Etsy

3. Mon Esprit by Sweet Crude

This is currently my favorite song to listen to at ear-shattering volume while driving at night. The VOICE on this woman. The JOY of the band. I love that you don’t need to understand the lyrics to totally understand the spirit of the song. Gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous.

4. This drawing by slyvox on Tumblr

Miles Morales and sunflowers? Yes please! Look how cute he is!!!

5. The California super bloom

I got to go for a hike on Wednesday afternoon and it’s absolutely stunning out there. So many flowers! It was nice to get some fresh air and be reminded of the way that fire and rain can bring so much beauty to the world. Then, as I was driving to dinner after my hike, The Byrds’ “Turn, Turn, Turn” popped up on shuffle, so I read Ecclesiastes 3:1 as I ate dinner:

To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away, a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity into man’s heart, yet so that he cannot find out what God has done from beginning to end.

God is really good at giving you what you need to hear right when you need to hear it.

I am a Ventura, California native with a compulsion to create. I'm a storyteller, through writing, photography, and occasionally music. Weekends are for camping with my husband, reading, and hunting for vintage treasures, which I sell in my Etsy shop, Peace & Goodwill. My favorite things include lavender lattes, swimming in the ocean, true crime podcasts, The X-Files, and Peaky Blinders. I hope to become a full-time writer, bestselling novelist, and a continually improving reflection of God's grace. Proverbs 16:24
