Because it’s 9:08pm on Sunday evening, and I have a severe case of writer’s block (and procrastination issues, obviously), I figured I would tell you about my past week.
So that you can be bored to tears.
But then I changed my mind, deciding to spare you that kind of trauma.
The last thing you want to hear about is the potato soup I made from scratch, or how I spent an entire afternoon researching flowers that only need partial sun. (I seriously cannot believe that’s a true story.)
So I won’t bore you today with stories about burned dinners.
(This was a quesadilla, if you couldn’t tell.)
I’ll also spare you the insanity of the second grade field trip.
BECAUSE WHO TAKES A GROUP OF ELEVEN DOZEN EIGHT YEAR OLDS TO THE MUSEUM?
Not again. Not ever, ever again.
Instead of rehashing all that excitement, I’m just going to point you to a few other blogs that are definitely worth your while. These blogs are on my daily (ish) reading list, and even though I don’t know these writers personally, I like to pretend that I do.
Stuff Christians Like (Jon Acuff): http://stuffchristianslike.net
Jon is sarcastic, which basically means I love him. My favorite post of his is the one about needing a t-shirt that says, “I direct deposit my tithe.” (You know, so no one judges you for passing the offering plate without dropping anything into it.)
Living Proof Ministries (Beth Moore): http://blog.lproof.org
Because, duh. It’s Beth Moore.
Jen Hatmaker: http://jenhatmaker.com
She makes me laugh. Hard. And her words convict me…all in the same post. She inspires me to live outside my comfort zone. Because faith does that. It lives outside the safety net.
Big Mama (Melanie Shankle): http://thebigmamablog.com
I believe Melanie and I were destined to be friends. Even though we don’t know each other yet. I love her writing so much, that I recently went back eight years to the beginning of her blog, and read it like a book.
A Holy Experience (Ann Voskamp): http://www.aholyexperience.com
Ann cuts to the bones of faith, and she does it with words that make you think, “Yes! That’s it! How does she know?”
So that’s all. I’m obviously chock full of insight and deep wisdom today.
(Like usual, right?)
So what blogs do you read? What is your favorite?
