Awesome weekend!

THE BOOK OF AWESOME

Everyone knows about this book by now, right? If you don't, it is quite elementary: A list of the simplest things/events that makes one happy! Day to day things, such as the pleasure of walking on autumn leaves.

My awesome weekend starts by asking you: What has been your awesome this week or what would you like it to be this weekend?


Before the fun, first a history lesson!

I overuse this word like nobody else, yet I always thought it was from the 80's, surfing, California generation. That's true, but did you know that was actually a comeback?

Awesome is originally from the very end of the 16th century! First dictionary appearance in 1598 and the meaning was something that inspires ''Awe''. Not only that, awesome is in the Bible. In this context, it refers to the person or work of God.

That's awesome!


Now for fun, my awesome is!:

Finding a penny! I know this is old news, but it makes me happy everytime, especiallly now that they are no longer in circulation. The best part is the phrase that goes along with it, I never forget to say: '' See a penny, pick it up! All day long, you'll have good luck!'' :)

What's your AWESOME?

Heck! If I can get out of bed in the morning, it's AWESOME. But honestly, spending quality time with my grandkids is awesome, Firing up the pit and grilling some Ribeye steaks, is awesome, Going down to the river and throwing in a hook, is awesome! The smell of fresh cut lumber and building something, is awesome. But the most awesome thing, I believe, is knowing that I the Lord above loves me and that I can live for eternity! Now That's AWESOME!

I have an "Angel Jar" that I made specifically for pennies that I FIND. When you find a penny, it's a message from an angel reminding you that she/he is watching over you. My awesome this week was seeing 2 trees that were alive during the Civil War and still standing today. I was on a hike and unprepared for taking photos. Silly me. I will go back and get photos of them.

That's beautiful, I never heard the penny collection from Angels. If only those trees could talk, that's quite the encounter.
