Laudable Linkage

Hmm…I was trying to come up with a more interesting title than just…”Interesting links.” But I’m not sure that’s “it” either.

At any rate, here are some interesting (looks like I need to get out my thesaurus) things I’ve found this week.

Quilly’s Barefoot Weather made me smile.

Crystal’s A life poured out for others convicted me.

I don’t remember how I found this, but Encouraging Caregivers is a blog that seeks to do just as its title says by one who is a caregiver in her home. Though my mother-in-law doesn’t live in our home, we’re actively involved in her life and care, and I’ve found much here to be helpful. A couple of the many good posts there: Things you can do to encourage yourself and Life with Mom.

Brenda’s Blog from Paraguay has some great, great advice for short-term mission teams. I was thankful that the mission trips my sons have been on were led by people who had been on the mission field, and this echoed much of what they were told. You might pray for Brenda — she’s just found out she has breast cancer and will have to come home to the US for treatment.

I’m not familiar with the blog All you have to give, but from a link somewhere (I forgot to note where) I found this great post on fasting.

I LOVE Anita’s creative space.

Just for fun, I did go head and look up “interesting” at “appealing, entertaining. Synonyms: absorbing, affecting, alluring, amusing, arresting, attractive, beautiful, captivating, charismatic, compelling, curious, delightful, elegant, enchanting, engaging, engrossing, enthralling, entrancing, exceptional, exotic, fascinating, fine, gracious, gripping, impressive, intriguing, inviting, lovely, magnetic, pleasing, pleasurable, prepossessing, provocative, readable, refreshing, riveting, stimulating, stirring, striking, suspicious, thought-provoking, unusual, winning.” I think many of those adjectives apply to many of these links. 🙂 Not “suspicious,” though. And I need to look up what “prepossessing” means (the dictionary can keep me occupied for hours…)

Hope you have a great Saturday. I need to do laundry (again), make a smallish trip to the store, restock the missions closet at church for visiting missionaries tomorrow, and attend a baby shower. And then maybe jump into any of the 101 other things that need to be done around here. Or maybe not. 🙂

  1. i love “laudable linkage” … in fact when i saw that, i thought, oh my gracious wish i’d thought of that first;)

    and the articles look very interesting☺

  2. What a cool post! Thank you for including me. I was down sick and feeling sorry and I staggered to my comp and found this beautiful gift. I am glad I brought you some joy.

  3. “Laudable Linkage” is definitely memorable. Another thought I had for a name that plays off the name of your blog is “Straying Outside the (My) Blog”. 🙂

  4. I enjoyed your writing.
    The below is simple and maybe something to think about?


    Phil Edwards (

    In the book called Matthew: Chapter 26 – Verse 28 is this sentence. “This is my blood of the covenant, which is freely given for the forgiveness of sins.”

    The history of all religion is a record of blood and fear and warfare and horror and rule. Men and Women are damned? Is formal religion a creation of all thngs dead?

    Peace, Love and Understanding
