Pick of the Clicks 12/11/15

Hello, hello! It’s been a while, but here are some of those Pick of the Clicks gems you’ve been missing the last few weeks…

To kick off, my favorite meme of the season:

Just jaw-dropping: as if CS Lewis wasn’t cool enough already, it turns out he was a secret government agent. Amazing story from Harry Lee Poe.

My hubby and I went to see the Good Dinosaur, and did not care much for the movie or the short that preceded it. I did, however, appreciate this insight on the short movie from Luke T Harrington: ‘Sanjay’s Super Team’ and the Struggle of Passing our Faith on to our Kids.

The whole world is abuzz talking about Trump, guns, muslims and Falwell, and in the midst of it all I appreciated Nate Pyle’s presentation of what this means for American Christians: A Fork in the Road: Civil Religion or Christianity.

Lindsey Nobles hit the nail on the head with this one: Church and the Single Girl. Listen up, y’all.

This, from Sarah Arthur, was written last year, but is just exactly what I needed to read this year about the place of sentiment in our Christmas preparation: Bringing True Joy to the World.

Adults, this is a resource you should bookmark: from Stop It Now (a resource for preventing sexual abuse), a guide to What is Age-Appropriate for developing children’s questions/knowledge.

And this, from Rachel Wrenn, is just beautiful: a Prayer for the End of Nursing.

This, the whole thing: Postpartum Depression, Defined, from Pamela Manasco.

Postpartum depression is crying in the checkout line at Walmart because you have an ear infection and your son is teething and he will not stop crying and all you wanted was a bag of peanut butter M&Ms, for the love of everything holy, will somebody please take this baby and let you walk into oncoming traffic?

This series of cartoons is BRILLIANT: Stop saying ‘sorry’ if you want to say thank you

Here’s a gift idea for the teacher in your life this Christmas: a Facepalm rubber stamp.

Also, fabulous, did you know that Dan Stevens (Matthew of Downton Abbey fame) has a daily Dan Stevens advent calendar… bizarre and hilarious.

Also, in November Adele released 25 and pretty much won the internet with the launch, IMO:

For example, when she entered an Adele impersonator competition (disguised, of course)…

And when she saved Thanksgiving…

And from me?

Up at Huffington Post Religion: Who put the X in Xmas?

On the blog: Building my Marriage One IKEA bookcase at a time, and my two-cents worth on Donald Trump: Let’s play No-Trumps (some thoughts on how the cards are stacked this election) .

Thanks for reading this blog, friends, and enjoy the clicks!

  1. No time to read them all, but the piece by Nate Pyle on the craziness in the world and apparent Christian reaction to it is excellent. Thank you.
