Every now and then I come across a post that is so good I just want to share it! Some blogs I read have a weekly post where they simply share links of such posts they’ve come across the past week. Well…I don’t do quite enough blog reading to do that weekly. But here are a few from the past several weeks that I thought I would share!
16 Tips to a Lifelong Marriage – In honor of her anniversary, Teri Underwood posts some excellent marriage tips!
A Letter To My Daughter: What I Want You to See in the Mirror – Such good thoughts! I definitely definitely want our daughters (if God decides to so bless us) to know and believe these crucial things!
On Being Real – Definitely things I have thought through. Even though it can be hard for me to post real things…personal things…if it can help, bless, or encourage any reader…it is worth it! God puts things in my life so that I can bring Him glory, grow in His likeness, and in turn help others. Sometimes people don’t get that…and it’s hard when my “real” thoughts are judged or preached at…but all in all it is still worth it to me to be real.
Chocolate Scones – I love how Meredith refers to her husband. A mystery. “To be a lover is to be the explorer of the wilderness of another human heart.” And again here when she says, “I am in the presence of a mystery that is awe-filled and holy and I don’t understand.” So amazing to think of my husband as an incredible, intricate, mystery…a human being. He is my gift from God that I can get to know, to love…and his heart is mine to take care of.
But I Want a Cheese Stick – Ahh….how often have I wanted a cheese stick from God! Even though sometimes His answer is “no,” we can know that His timing is loving and best.
Human S e x Trafficking – A topic that is rarely brought up but so relevant. Human trafficking does occur and the statistics are shocking and alarming. Her last paragraph has great ways to be involved, while acknowledging that not everyone will/should jump on an activist band wagon.
Am I Good Enough? – This kind of goes along with the post on being real. The trap of comparing to others….a trap all too familiar to me…
Living in Harmony – Another post with great thoughts and tips on marriage.
Everyday Contentment – Something I have been trying to make a conscious effort to do. Stop. Look. Notice. Praise!
What Do we See in the Waiting – With all the waiting in my life, this is a great reminder! God says: “Glorify me in the waiting. Worship me in the unknown. Trust me with the outcome.”
