Happy first Friday of September! On Friday’s I like to share a few favorite finds I have discovered in blogland. This weeks Friday Five are:
Pam’s questions led me to question my own ability if given the challenge of reading from a particular book of the Bible would I be familiar enough with it to begin to read some scriptures that were relevant to the opportunity at hand? Would you Be Prepared?
Some days it is easy to lose sight of what truly matters but Emily tells The Truth About Social Media –And How It’s Wrecking Us. These lines really struck me in
What does it matter if our towels don’t match or we don’t have a chalkboard declaring the menu for every upcoming meal? What does it matter if our dreams aren’t turning out the way we’d hoped, or we aren’t “trending” on Twitter? Someone’s mother is crying for fear of her child not living to see the next day—because in spite of working from sun-up to sun-down, she can’t even provide him a bowl of porridge. –Emily t. wierenga
Alisa’s post, Why I’m Okay With Filtering My Life Despite My Honesty, is another great read that reminds us about finding the balance of social media. She says, “Not Everything Has to Be Immortalized On The Internet”. I couldn’t agree more.
As we head into the cooler days of fall, Lisa’s Summer Remembrance is lovely a call to remember the deeds of the Lord throughout every season.
And though the events of the world were far less bucolic through this summer, it remains important to remember that which was abundant, that which was brimming with blessing and goodness. In every season harken back to treasures that came your way, whispered from the heavens by God’s grace to season your life with His love and provision. – Lisa
Speaking of fall, I love Misty’s ideas on her The Single Life: Autumn Bucket List 2014. Rather than making it all about her the list is centered around others and include things like a hometown mission trip and “boo” a neighbor, which I hadn’t heard of before. See how educational blogging can be…lol.
So there you have friends my recommended five reads for your weekend….Happy Reading
