Good Wednesday morning. Here’s a selection of inspiring posts of the week from my favorite bloggers:
Kelly Harland, is an aphorist. I didn’t know what an aphorist or aphorism was. (aph·o·rism/ˈafəˌrizəm/noun/A pithy observation that contains a general truth). I know now. What talent. Here’s Kelly’s post titled: Wept on Vessel. ”What if, an aspect of faith, is embracing who I am?”
Kurt Harden @ Cultural Offering with his post: Helpful Apps. Kurt suggests that “you try one of these 9 apps and you’ll feel better.” One of his apps is the “Written Word® - Get a blank sheet of paper and write a letter to someone. Thank them for something and tell them what you have been doing. Tell them how you think about something. If necessary use the back of the paper or even a second or third sheet. Ask them to write you back. Modeled after society pre-1990.” Check out his other 8 apps…loved it.
Amplexi with a post titled: For Moments of Illumination, I Give Thanks. Most of life is, more or less, drudgery. Work is, well, work…I do not live my life in quiet desperation. I live in quiet expectation. Because there are moments of beauty, truth, goodness. I might be out for a run, thinking more about calories and body weight and everything that is wrong with me. Tired, out of breath, feeling all the accumulation of old aches and injuries. Then: boom. Read more of this “illuminating and enlightening” post.
WhiskeyRiver, an ongoing source of wisdom in quotes. This one from Donald Miller:
The human body essentially recreates itself every six months. Nearly every cell of hair and skin and bone dies and another is directed to its former place. You are not who you were last November.
And this one from Milan Kundera: “It takes so little, so infinitely little, for a person to cross the border beyond which everything loses meaning: love, convictions, faith, history. Human life – and herein lies its secret – takes place in the immediate proximity of that border, even in direct contact with it; it is not miles away, but a fraction of an inch.”
And here’s “Arable Seasons” by Scott Marshall with wonderful farm land shot in Scotland.
Have a great Hump Day…
