Happy weekend! I have some fun stuff for you!
My favorite nerdy cartoon this week:
From Lisa-Jo Baker: For the mom on her way to daycare drop off right now. As always, encouraging and right on the money.
From Lesa Engelthaler: Words – Poison or Fruit? (I was especially thrilled to read this one, a lovely meditation from a writer who feared writing because of her Winnie-the-Pooh type of spelling – Lesa will be writing for the Words that Changed my World series again soon!)
From Jen Wilkin: that which i did not sow (a beautiful reflection on hard, painful seasons and the redemption of wild tomatoes)
From Alia-Joy: Nothing (SUCH an encouraging read for the days when I feel I have accomplished ‘nothing’. Deep breath. Such a great read.)
From Hannah Anderson: Why do resources for women seem like ‘Christianity Lite’? SUCH good questions and thoughts in this one…
From Andrew Wilson: Twenty-Five Bloggers in One Sentence Each (if you read a bit in Christian circles, this was really fun)
From Lore Ferguson: Divorce and the good of children (beautifully written, and so thought-provoking)
From Karen Swallow Prior over at Her.meneutics: Female and Made in My Father’s Image (the post I wish I had written on the ‘should God be addressed as ‘She’ debate.)
From Jamie Calloway-Hanauer: As the world turns, reflecting in her kitchen among the daily suburban routine on her response to the HORRIFIC honor killings and violence against women. Masterfully written, and so important.
From Gloria Furman: Wisdom for Social Media (HT: King Solomon) – LOVED this, with a collection of proverbs rewritten for the smartphone age. One example to wet your appetite: “When words are many, transgression is not lacking, but whoever restrains his thumbs is prudent.” (Proverbs 10:19, kinda)
This collection of rare historical photos was AMAZING.
And your moment of YouTube awesome this week (in honor of So You Think You Can Dance starting up again). This group only took second place (!!!?! Robbery!!?!) and are proof that no matter what the music style, there is something incredibly beautiful about synchronized movement:
On my blog this week? a letter to my children on memorial day, and most read was The Intimacy of Toothbrushes (and Sex). But then again, anything with sex in the title always gets a lot of attention, doesn’t it? (Or maybe toothbrushes are more intriguing than I realized…)
As always – I’d love to hear from you. What have you read that caught your eye? Did you write anything fun? Leave a comment below! Happy clicking.
