Great blog posts I think you should read

Jumping into the swimming pool of God’s grace.

We’ve turned a corner here in the Saunders household yesterday. The beauty of non-stop ministry situations is that they usually begin to see the light of truth clear away the darkness, and I feel as if I’m seeing that process play out in both the physical and the spiritual realms. When God restores broken things it feels like jumping into a clear, clean pool on the hottest day of summer. Everything is washed and refreshed.

Since I’ve had a few minutes to catch up on all my blogosphere friends, I thought I’d post links to the posts that I really enjoyed and helped me through the last two weeks. I haven’t had time to comment on them, but all of them either touched me, inspired me or humored me!

Ed Bahler wrote an interesting post this week that I’ve thought a lot about.

Pete Wilson wrote about making sure, as you lead, that you are leading people to the right place. While you are there look at the link he gives to an Olympics cheer site.

All-time favorite blog post title of the week goes to the Church Bartender gang for this post: Let’s Get Naked.  Come on people, you know me…you can trust my recommendation. David Helbig and Jeremy should especially go check this one out.

I love everything Jeff Shinabarger posts, but I enjoyed dipping back into the culture/arts side of life with this post on Beautiful Losers.

When Anne Jackson talks, I listen over at Flowerdust, her blog. But writing on the Deadly Viper Character Assassins blog this week she had a great viewpoint on the John Edwards Affair. Grace…what a great word.

Joni wrote about Loneliness in the church and reminded me of one of my core values: hospitality. It was a great reminder of why we do what we do.

My friend Lisa Duvall just started a blog, Life according to Weezie. Go check her out and encourage her with a comment!

I’d give you more, but a nasty, nasty storm just blew threw and knocked out all our power. One girl is hollering in the shower and another keeps pushing the TV Remote. I guess I have to go! Enjoy, all.

I am passionately devoted to living my life in the places God has given me. Over the years those places have changed: from homeschooler to businesswoman, from consumer to storyteller. These days I'm focusing on building a new business and figuring out what it means to do everything with integrity and informed by faith.
