The article that Paula Hendricks wrote for the True Woman blog this week, My Mom's Courage-Infusing Words, was a challenge to me. She talked about how we should give courage to others around us. She shared an example about how her mom does that for her in emails, like when she responded to some anxiety Paula had expressed. I need to work on being a courage-giver.
Stop Treasuring the Trivial at *Precious Adornment really made me stop and think. It felt like I got hit between the eyes with the words she quotes from John Piper. How much of what I do with my day makes it appear to others that I treasure Christ? Not enough, that's for sure.
I am a new reader of Ann Voskamp's. I saw her name floating around out there on Twitter, and I thought I'd check out her blog A Holy Experience. It's a lovely spot on the web, both in pictures and in words. This week she wrote about gaining a passion for scripture memory on her post titled Returning to Your First Love Bible Memorization: Make a Commitment Booklet. It made me want to amp up my scripture memorization.
Now, along a completely different vein...
If you're looking to save yourself some money as well as putting something a little healthier into your body, you might want to read The Cheese Wars: Block vs. Pre-Shredded over at Comfy in the Kitchen. I really need to utilize her suggestion, but I'm definitely gonna need to get a large shredder or else use my food processor.
