Three Great Things: January 2021

Posted January 31, 2021 by meezcarrie in Christian, Three Great Things / 17 Comments


Happy Sunday! Today I’m trying something new that I hope you will find fun & entertaining as a monthly feature here on the blog. There’s so much negativity in the world right now, so many reasons to despair and feel like life is one chunk of bad news after another. But y’all there ARE great things still going on out there, if we just stop to appreciate them. So that’s what I want to do every month – even just to keep my own focus on the good things God’s allowed me to experience. Without further ado, here are three great things I read, watched, listened to and learned in January 2021!

three great things i watched

We loved watching Homicide Detective when it was on, so we were thrilled to learn that Joe Kenda was back with a new series on discovery+ – and yes, yes that is the whole reason we subscribed to this new streaming service lol.

… because sometimes you just have to laugh lol

This sermon from our pastor is the best sermon on wisdom I’ve ever heard – and it is so extremely timely for this season we’re all in. I’ve watched it more than once now (because I need the reminders as I navigate social media lol) and I keep learning more each time.

three great things I listened to

three great things i learned

– I am not alone in my tendency to obsess over fictional characters

– there are 3 people in the world: wise, foolish & otherwise/evil. The wise adjust themselves to the truth & accept feedback. The foolish explain away the truth and turn it back against you, and you must enforce boundaries to stop the damage of their refusal to adjust to the truth.

– the clinical trial my dad is a part of for his multiple myeloma (CAR T-cell therapy) has been hugely successful for him so far! His recent bone marrow biopsy showed NO EVIDENCE of myeloma cells!!! Praise the Lord!


What about you? What are three great things you read, watched, listened to, and/or learned in January 2021?

    I have listened to and/or watched an extreme amount of Home Free music videos. (Can’t wait to see American Pie with Don McLean on Wednesday)
    I have immensely enjoyed Melissa Jagears and Sarah Monzon’s latest books.
    I am also so happy to hear about your dad.

  3. I love this post, Carrie! And I especially love that your dad’s treatment is working! My husband is in remission from leukemia. I know what a BIG win that is for your dad! Hands in the air, happy dancing, and praising Jesus! 🙂

    Great post, honey! I’m sure this is no surprise to anyone who knows us, but I watched 2 of the 3 great things you watched, listened to 1 of the great things you listened to, and learned 2 of the great things you learned! ☺️☺️💕💕. Now I just have to nail the reading part! ☺️💕

    Loved your ‘3 Things’ as they were a great pick-me-up during these crazy, scary, exasperating times.
    And who doesn’t want more Joe Kenda?! Please, please pretty please more hilarious videos. That gave a whole knew meaning to “What can brown do for you?”. Talk about going the extra mile for that delivery.

    But most importantly….praising the Lord with you for the great prognosis for your dad.
