Here's where I get to share some of my favorite things I have read recently in other people's blogs. I get to toot someone else's horn instead of my own, which is refreshing because I'm afraid that tooting my own horn would sound something like a whoopie cushion.
Brigetta is a mom of four boys, and has a really thoughtful and fun blog called "Transparent Mama". In this post, she has eloquently and poigniantly spoken the desires of MY heart. Wow. I know spending quality, alone time with my kids and husband is truly important to me, but I have always felt defeated by the clock and the to-do list. Brigetta has helped me to see that I need to make the time, I need to make the time, I need to make the time, and set some of my own agendas down. We won't get these years back.
Jonathan is the author of "Stuff Christians Like" which is one of my favoritest blogs, and now is also one of my favoritest books. He's hilarious (just ask Dave) about explaining the weird stuff that we Christians do, without mocking our faith. Actually he is spot-on spiritually. Today, his wife Jenny wrote this post on his blog about one of my favoritest authors of all time....my Beth! And why we Beth groupies - er, I mean fans - feel the need to explain our affections to our husbands!
And finally, go and spend some time over here at Allysa's blog. Seriously, just go. When you get there, you'll know why I sent you.
