I've been wanting to start a series for a while now of posts "from the tabs". I am one of those crazy people who keep an insane amount of tabs open in FireFox. (I'm not even going to tell you how many I have open right now! I'll say that it's high even for me. I need to cull, badly!)
Tonight I'm going to start that series. I don't have a button yet, and it's too late at night for me to create one, but I'm hoping to work on it tomorrow, so come back and check!
Homegrown Hospitality/Documented Life Project--This is purely a little bit of eye candy for those of us who love lettering, doodling, and journaling. LOVE Stephanie Ackerman's work. *ContentedSigh*
Five Benefits of Corporate Worship--I've been pondering much about "the church" in the days leading up to our Constitution celebration last Sunday, and even considering a blog series about the church. This post from Desiring God is excellent.
Change Your Life and Challenge Your Mind by Making Time to Read Good Books--I love to read, and I'm generally a fast and voracious reader. Recently, though, I haven't done well with completing as many non-fiction volumes as I'd like. Crystal's post has some great ideas for getting more reading time in. I'm planning to utilize some of them to complete my summer reading list (which I'll post here on the blog as soon as I finalize it...I'm a bit behind!! :))
Missionary Died Thinking He Was a Failure; 84 Years Later Thriving Churches Found in the Jungle--Such an encouragement for anyone struggling in ministry! We never know the fruit that God is going to bring that we may never see with our own eyes.
Skip the Verse, Memorize the Book--I've been reading again about extended Bible memorization as we get back to our "Mega Memory" work in our homeschool. Right now we're working on Romans 6. I'd love to finish that this summer and then memorize the book of Colossians this fall.
Compass Painting at The Painted Forest--This just looks like fun! This whole blog looks like fun, in fact. I want to explore it quite a bit more!
Why the Missional Movement Will Fail--Excellent, excellent article that goes along perfectly with what God has been teaching us recently about the church. Planning a blog post to go along with this soon.
How Mothers Can Worship in the Midst of Inconvenience--There's so much I'd like to say about this post, but my poor "just started back to the gym this week after 16 years off" body is screaming to go to bed. Maybe in another post. In the meantime, this is just so good. If you are a mom of littles, or know a mom of littles, or even if you are a mom of bigs (because I sure still have those days sometimes!!), this is so worth the read.
Every Christian's Second Most Important Book--It may surprise you! And I love it! And that's all I'll say, so you can go read and find out for yourself. :)
Tamale Cornbread Dressing--I recently decided that tamales may well be my very favorite food ever. Which is quite odd, because Mexican is not my favorite type of cuisine. But I LOVE tamales. I think it has to do with a story I'm saving for another blog post...about my daddy and my great-aunt's green corn tamale recipe. Anyway, a friend shared this recipe with me a while back. I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my "to try" list. Doesn't it look good???
So tell me...how many tabs do you have open in your browser? And what's the best thing you've read online lately? Let me know in the comments, please!
