Here are some interesting reads from the last couple of weeks:
Your children want YOU! 5 stars for this one, if I were in the habit of giving stars.
From a Father’s Heart. Quote: “But even the best intervention will not insure a life without pain for any of our children. So, we fathers do well, not only to protect, but to prepare our sons and daughters to meet the inevitable heartbreak that weave their way into the tapestry of the lives of our offspring.”
Don’t Mistake Doing What You Love With Doing What’s Important. Quote: “Someone has to lift up the value and significance of showing up every day, being responsible, doing your job and taking care of business. There’s something strong, solid, and respectable about it.”
The Illness Idol, HT to Chris Anderson. Quote: “Illness is an idol that can engulf all my waking time and attention. It can breed self-absorption and suck up all of my limited strength, attention and energies…. It suffocates and would choke-out my interest and desire to serve God with my limited strength.” He offers a prayer in response.
You Make Me Feel So Guilty! Good thoughts on true guilt, false guilt, the error of comparing ourselves, and what to do about each.
