Friday 5: "Whatever Is ..."

Songbird, for this week's Friday Five from the revgalblogpals, offers us "a twist on the usual lists" and invites us to "use Paul's letter to the church at Philippi as a model. Name five things that are true, honorable, just, pure, pleasing, commendable, excellent or worthy of praise. These could be people, organizations, acts, ideas, works of art, pieces of music--whatever comes to mind for you."

1. "For the joy of human love, brother, sister, parent, child,
Friends on earth and friends above, for all gentle thoughts and mild,
God of all to you we raise, this our hymn of grateful praise."

2. a simple meal, prepared well with high quality and healthy ingredients, shared with friends and family

3. a peaceful night's sleep with sweetest of dreams in a warm bed with freshly laundered sheets

4. chocolate [if it is not a sacrament, it likely should be]

5. this painting, Ascension No. 3, David Brown Milne, 1943. Panoramas: The North American Landscape in Art.

    Thanks for the music =). The good meal thing is hard for me too--I'm learning about the goodness and simplicity of soups. Good for winter too.

    Such a wonderful list!

    May the Spirit be in our midst as we partake of this holy delicacy. Semi-sweet or creamy milk, our delight is in all things you have created in the wonder that is Chocolate. Make us worthy of this sweetness and delight, and send us out to spread Chocolate sauce (or the blessed Nutella) on toast everywhere.

    And the people said, "Fondue. Amen."
