Three Great Things: May 2021

Posted June 1, 2021 by meezcarrie in Christian, Three Great Things / 28 Comments

I can’t believe May is over already! The end of the month means it’s time for another Three Great Things post, the new blog series I started in January. I have to be honest, May was a tough month. So many people I love have gone through hard stuff this past month, lots of loss and grief. But y’all we don’t grieve without hope & there ARE great things still going on out there, if we just stop to appreciate them. So that’s what I want to do this month & every month – even just to keep my own focus on the good things God’s allowed me to experience. So here’s three great things I read, watched, listened to, and learned in May 2021!

three great things I read


three great things i watched

We watched the Friends reunion for nostalgia’s sake, and it was so fun! This was never a show I watched growing up, and I of course don’t agree with some of the choices the characters made during its 10 year run. But I adore the close bond the cast shares, and I had to watch it just for that alone…. while also hoping for the PIVOT blooper, which is one of my faves. I was not disappointed 🙂

My parents introduced me this fun new show on HGTV – No Demo Reno! I adore the host – she’s adorable – and I love her decorating style & how she transforms a space with things that are accessible without major renovation. (Note: Eric is a sweetheart to watch it with me even though she’s a bit too hyper for him haha)

I mean, you knew I would be sharing one of my church’s sermons, right? This is such a great sermon on the trap of bitterness & how to avoid it. It’s something all of us need to listen to right now, especially with how volatile Christians are with each other today.

  1. I’m glad to learn print sales are rising.
    I’m reassured to see that after COVID, any dilemma, June till follows May, which will be followed by July, and constantly wins out.
    That big and little prayers still get answered, sometimes faster and more easily than we ever expect!

    I didn’t do much in May as I was caring for my precious mama. Thank you for sharing.

    Three things I’ve been reminded in May:
    – God is in control
    – It takes a second (I was in a car accident)
    – Earthly things are just “things”

    I’ve been watching, and enjoying Death in Paradise’s new season on PBS, the Hometown Town takeover/makeover show on HGTV, and Escape to the Chateau on PBS.

    I watched a marathon of MONK. I saw baby eagles in their nest. I learned to make more dishes with what was on hand and think they turned out as good if not better by improvising.

    3 Great things I recently watched are:

    -My husband and I had a binge marathon and watched all of the Marvel Avenger movies in chronological order. It was so fun. Things connected and made so much more sense.
    -Watched a new series on Netflix called Manifest. Addictive!
    -Watching an amazing series also on Netflix called Heartland! Sooo good! I highly recommend it!! Very family friendly!!

  11. Paula Shreckhise

    Three books I read in May were:
    The Nature of A Lady by Roseanna White
    Aftermath by Terri Blackstock
    Paint and Nectar by Ashley Clark
    Glad to know there’s a spinoff from the If I Run Series. I need to re read those!

    What a fun post! I still need to read the books on your list and I still need to see the Friends Reunion. Friends is making a comeback with teenagers but now that I’m watching clips from here and there, I’m thinking some of the things on the show probably aren’t really appropriate for my girls….

  13. My three great things are – I have recovered from Covid-19, No one else in the family got it, Today was a beautiful day and I got to go outside and look at God’s GLORY !
