Links, Links everywhere there’s Links

I’m taking a break from my drama to mention several links and finds from my week.They run the gamut of topics – from seriously funny, to seriously serious, to just great information. I hope you will take a look.

One of my favorite new blogs is Megan at FriedOkra (thanks to Jules). I have enjoyed reading the story of her courtship with her husband. But this post, regarding a recent trip to the municipal pool, just about killed me. It is so funny and so gross at the same time. Please, for the sake of your computer, do not drink anything while reading this post.

Jules, at Everyday Mommy, has had many excellent thought-provoking posts this week. First, there is this one, with an excellent discussion on creating Jesus in our image and making Him fit into a nice little package of who we want Him to be. Several weeks ago, she provided a link for this site*. To read the interesting discussion on this site at her site, go here*.

You may have already heard about the bishop in the Netherlands proposing all people call their God “Allah”… The Hutch* has written a succinct post summing up the Truth regarding this* proposal.

Check out these YUMMY recipes for S’mores, at Skip to My Lou. These aren’t your ordinary smores.

I LOVE the MotherLoad! It is full of ideas for organizing your home and sticking to a budget. This post, on Social Obligations on a Budget, is a perfect example. Don’t just read her blog… check out the entire site.

In light of the impending delivery of our fourth child, I have to link to this post over at Blog for Life. Sean and I had talked about this very thing shortly after Seamus turned one. We had to wonder if we were limiting the Lord’s planned blessings for us if we took our “child bearing” into our own hands and out of His. Yes, financially, our lives will be quite different than if we had stopped after 1 or 2 children. But the Lord knew that, and He doesn’t just bless people financially. I look at each of my children and want to cry and praise the Lord for the way He has blessed our home with these precious children.

Our thinking on this topic is certainly not the “norm” — in fact I am appalled at the comments people make to me when they see me with my big, round expectant belly along with my three other children. One man asked me the other day if I was “one of the producers” and then mumbled something about overpopulation…

Finally, I am proud to mention that I was awarded this award by CMommy at Singalullaby.

It is for “those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends & those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also, for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world.”

I give this to each and everyone of you who read my blog and have offered prayers and encouragement. I am constantly amazed at how the Lord uses the internet.
