Welcome lovelies to another edition of The Friday Five. Once again Friday has rolled through faster than a little kid going down a slip and slide on a hot summer’s day it seems. Are your days rushing by as well? Sorry I digress. Even with a busy week, I did manage to sneak in a little online time for blog reading. Here are a few my favorite reads from the week.
Perhaps it’s because I’m resisting the need rest that Kathryn’s post Waving the White Flag of Surrender really resonated with me. It feels like I should be doing more. I really like these lines she wrote:

I surrender to stop constantly swimming upstream, against the current, and instead try to lean into the rhythms of life. – Kathryn

We are exhorted to stand not sit, perhaps because sitting might lead us to relax (let our minds wander and not be alert) when God is really saying: –Sandra
