I had a rare opportunity to cruise around to some of my favorite blogs yesterday and was edified, uplifted and encouraged.  So…I wanted to share some of what I found.

Over at Amy’s Humble Musings, I had to laugh as I read this hilarious story of life in farming community.  She captures moments that express life at its fullest!  What would cause Emily Post to have a heart attack, anyway? 





Checking in with Ingrid over at The Hope Blog, I discovered that she and I share a love of Southern Gospel music.  Enjoy this delightful video of the Gaither Vocal Band along with her personal update here.




My next visit was to Generation Cedar where I found a list of Important Things for Mothers To Do.  To be honest, my ‘important list of things to do’ is quite extensive right now and I’m barely keeping my head above water; however, Kelly’s list had a different twist to it that gave me pause.   Here’s a snippet.

Important things for mothers to say to their children:

  • “I love being with you.”
  • “You make my day better.”
  • “You’re a gift.”
  • “I’m so glad God gave you to us.”
  • “God has a great plan for you…don’t stop serving Him.”
  • “There’s no place I’d rather spend the day than with you.”
  • “You make me laugh.”
  • “What I want more than anything on earth is for you to “seek first the Kingdom of God”.


Boy!  Did that one hit home!  Implementing this list ASAP!

Also at Kelly’s blog, I was introduced to a pianist named Jon Schmidt.  I’ve never heard of this young composer before, but his music is fantastic!   Here’s the video that she shared,


“The LORD bless you and keep you;
The LORD make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The LORD lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”
Numbers 6:24-26


Have a beautiful weekend!
