Because It's Nice To Remember Your Favorites

Here's a secret about me: I love reading and rereading and possibly rereading favorite books.

Maybe not all that unusual. But, I think our reading style often translates to blog-land. That's just my theory {I happen to like coming up with theories}. 
I like to save favorite posts. But, I don't go back to them all that much. They are up there though, on my favorites toolbar, a post saved here, and a post saved there. It's like that book on my shelf that I pull out at random times, a.k.a. once a year, because it's nice to revisit with an old friend.
So, here are just a few oldies but goodies and a few new ones from across blog land, too:
The Best Thing You Can Do Today : Kristen at chasing blue skies

Understanding Your Teen: Marianne at Abundant Life
When You Forget Who You Are: Shelly at Redemption's Beauty
A Severe Mercy: Lisa Spence
I enjoyed them all, but "A Severe Mercy" wrecked me. I go back to the story of Lazarus. One of my favorite Bible stories. God's mercy is wild and He loves. And loves and loves. We, too, are the ones He loves. Jesus is there in our suffering. Life can be hard, but He keeps being good. Can we believe it?
And by the way, did you read Justin Zoradi's post Stop Waiting For God To Tell You What To Do With Your Life. It makes me want to stick a pin in it. You know. Writing. 
He asks what might happen when you stick in a pin in the place where your true passion lies.
Maybe you have many passions. Maybe I do, too. All I know is I stay up way too late writing. Trying to fit this love into my life. 
So for the month of May I'm going to start, and stick a pin in it. I haven't flushed out exactly how this will look or what that will mean yet. But, I say, I'll try.
Do you want to stick a pin in anything? What has been encouraging to you lately?


  1. Thank you for including my post. True confessions: it wrecked me too. The Lord is good and we can trust Him, for this I am thankful.
