Its been another good week with some thought-provoking posts to ponder:
Open Roof Hospitality. Very convicting to me. If I had been the lady of the house whose roof was being torn up so people could bring their paralytic friend to Jesus, my first emotion would not have been gratitude and joy, I’m sure.
Pressing In To the Ungrateful.
Is It Possible For Christians to Idolize the Bible?
Seven Questions to Ask Before Having a Difficult Conversation.
The 3-Second Pause That Can Save a Morning and Spare Some Pain.
Six Observations About Speaking to Pastors Right Before They Preach. Although these are especially true for pastors for obvious reasons, many of them hold true for anyone. Once when my husband was the head usher in a very tightly packed church and was trying to find seats for people right before the service, someone who was also a neighbor chose that moment to tell him that he thought the lawn mower that we often let him borrow had been stolen.

The Do Not Depart site has been focusing this month on what we can learn from the lives of Godly Women: Inspiring Stories of Faithful Daughters, mostly from the past.

I saw this on Facebook and thought it rang very true. 🙂
The bad weather that was forecast for last night did not happen, yay! Have a wonderful Saturday!
