Meanwhile, here are some links for you.
Spiritual / Sanctity of Life
- What Would Wilberforce Do? by Eric Metaxas. Two of my heroes, one historic and one modern.
- How Pro-Life Are You, Really? by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Great exhortation.
- God of the Womb by Kristen Gilles. Poignant
- Roses and Pink Donuts by Ari at Mabel + Liv. Such a lovely tribute. (Read her entire series about her daughter Mabel if you can. Heartbreaking and beautiful all at once.)
- 5 Ways to Teach Your Children to Hate the Ministry by Ed Stetzer. Fantastic post for ministry families. So thankful to God and my parents that my parents did not fall into some of these traps. Homeschooling allowed us to travel with my dad a lot and now I have friends all over the globe because of those days. I can't speak for my siblings, of course, but I know that I love God and His churches and hey, I even married a preacher. Try to remember me next time you hear someone say, "All PKs rebel or leave the church." By God's grace it doesn't have to be that way. [stepping off soapbox now]
- If I Can't Accept You At Your Worst, Then Maybe You Should Stop Being So Horrible by Matt Walsh. I think I need a new category in these link posts for the "Matt Walsh Post of the Week."
- 19 Things People Swear They'll Never Do Until They Have Kids from Buzzfeed. (language warning for this site). "Way to go, future you!"
- Homeschool Barbie from Bubblews. I actually laughed out loud while reading this (and there may have been some hot tea spewing. I'll never tell).
- Is a Lot of Scientific Research Just... from Hot Air. Not a humor post, but it is pointing out the absurdity of much of what passes for "Science" these days.
- 2014 Is The Year of The Viral Debunk from Buzzfeed. Not unrelated to the above post. I saw that "ghost ship" headline on Yahoo earlier this week. C'mon, Yahoo. Lame.
- The Definitive Ranking of London Tube Lines from Buzzfeed. In related news: I went to London almost five years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it, including riding most of these lines. Some are quite a bit better than others. I wish we could go back this year. We were going to, but then we bought a house. (Goodbye, pennies saved through meticulous saving! You look more like tile floors and tub surround than tickets to London.) I miss London. I miss anywhere that has ever been warmer than right here, right now.
- Look-Alike College Friends Discover They are Sisters. (Auto-play video warning) Once you get past the "Ew" factor (and the Brave New World we're living in as far as making babies and giving birth is concerned) this sounds like the true life update of one of my favorite childhood movies. Hayley Mills, call your agent (she can be the grandma or something in the new movie they should make with this story).
And if you have a second or two, please pray for Sun and Higher Than Freezing temps!
