Worth Reading

Just popping in to share a couple of great blog reads I have enjoyed lately.

This one really spoke to my heart and I have been thinking about it for a couple of days now. Can you imagine what life would be like if we had no one to cleanse us of our sin? Unthinkable. For those who may not know, Amanda is Beth Moore's daughter. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree my friends.

And this one by Bev of GRITS speaks mightily of being where you are - fully. Powerful good advice. Advice that resonates with my word for the year - Serenity. I don't need to be going a hundred miles an hour - doing everything I can - trying to make everybody happy. I need to be where I am completely and relish every moment of it and gleaning the most I can from it. Ahhh.... that gives me a strange, uncommon sense of peace in my spirit. Thanks Bev!

And Antique Mommy always manages to jerk a tear from at least one of my eyes. This post did it for sure. I read it during the Christmas season and I am still thinking about it - a sure sign that it reached the depths of my heart. The tender moments of motherhood are so meaningful and I always admire that AM captures and illustrates them so beautifully through her words. I wish I had done a better job of capturing those moments in my own life when my kids were so little.

I hope you enjoy these links as much as I have.

I haven't added any new blogs to my reading since I went private, mainly because I hate asking people if they want to come over and play with me. I have about 60 who said "yes" but never come over. I've lost touch with them, too. It's annoying. These sound really good.

I love Chantel Hobbs. I've read her books and have such admiration for her. But my sis and I just started Prism at our church last week - a Biblically centered program. Good, but hard. Any weight loss program that is worth its time is hard.

The twins' birthday celebration post is finally up!

Thank you Robin for the shout out, but more for letting me know you were encouraged by my words. It's a struggle, isn't it, to just be where you are right now, content with that. Already I'm missing that little one, knowing she's changing and growing every single day. I appreciate the encouragement I find out there, in blogland, from fellow bloggers like you. xoox

Oh how I loved the post by Antique
Mommy! So funny, but it also brought tears to my eyes as it took me back in time. The little baby I used to swaddle is now 6'3"
and graduating high school. Where did that time go?
Thanks, Robin. Antique Mommy is now on my list of favorites (along with Robinznest).
