Laudable Linkage and Videos

Just a few interesting posts rounded up this week:

Settling for a lump of coal this Christmas? Candy ponders different reasons why Christmas joy might be missing as well as sound advice for dealing with the different issues.

Why we love the church.

Catalog Living, HT to Amy. A fun site — they post pictures from catalogs and make up funny comments to go along with them.

How to tie a bow. Am I the only adult whose bows go wonky? This helped.

Super simple snowman treats.

Cheese puffs.

Jon Acuff posted this video in Why you don’t bring a camel to church and asked how people would caption it. Some of the comments there are really funny. (Thankfully no animals or people were hurt.)

Best Wheel of Fortune solve ever — with one letter:

  1. Thank you for the link to the bow! I have trouble with that, too!

    Thank you for the link to the Cheese Puffs. I think they just made my Christmas Party menu.

    And that was an incredible solve on Wheel of Fortune! Wow.

  2. Barbara, thanks for the link. I enjoyed your post about “it’s just the way I am.” I am quoting you in a talk I’m giving in the morning to end our women’s Beth Moore Bible Study. It’s the perfect segue to the ending of the talk. I always appreciate your wisdom.

    A blogging friend, Barbara Harper from Stray Thoughs, recently said this, “Whether dealing with a sin issue, a personality bent, or even a spiritual gift, “That’s just the way I am” is not a good excuse. God wants us to seek Him for deliverance from the power of sin, for power and grace to maintain right balances and to be diligent even in areas where we don’t have natural gifts, and for help to grow continually more Christlike every day we live. He does not want us to remain “just the way we are.” Corinthians 3:18 says, “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”. We’re changed….by beholding Him.”
