I pray your Saturday is peaceful and joyful and everything you need it to be. And I pray your Sunday involves your favorite team winning, along with some chips and queso.
Here are some good reads I found this week:
Do We Really Connect Through Social Media, by Donald Miller. “We get to be our own movie directors, our own magazine editors, putting out into the world something creative and hopefully inspiring. But at times, I wonder if all the projecting of an image isn’t costing us something. And that something is the ability to connect, for real. Impressing people is not the same as connecting with them…”
Cups Aren’t Just for Coffee Anymore, on The Fulcrum Chronicles. Colleen doesn’t blog often, but when she does, it’s always great. Well-written. Witty. Interesting. Always a story. This is a blog worth your time.
12 Tips for Writer’s Block, by Susie Davis. I just discovered this blog and Susie is delightful. She doesn’t always write about writing, so if this isn’t your cup of tea, then click around and read some of her other stuff.
No Sidebar: A New Approach to Life, by Brian Gardner on Becoming Minimalist Though most of his post is actually metaphorical, the actual illustration of removing actual sidebars could not have come at a stranger time for me…a week after I revamped my sidebar and added Google Ads. (Hey…I made like ten bucks this week! Cha CHING!!!) Now I’m thinking maybe no sidebar is better for a blog about balance and everything. #confused.
Woman Drinks 3 Liters of Water a Day for Four Weeks I already drink a lot of water, and honestly, don’t keep track of the amount. But just seeing her before and after pics makes me want to drink 3 liters a day!
Life, By Sarah at Clover Lane. I almost didn’t read this. I saw it was a pro-life post and I saw it was long and I moved on. Full-discloser: The real reason I moved on is because I am horrified that so many babies die every day at the hand of competent doctors here in my country, yet I remain silent. I do nothing. Well, a week later, I finally decided to read the post. It turns out, Sarah’s post was about this very thing. I’m so glad I read it. And I think it’s time for me to do something. Anything. If you only read one thing, read this one.
