You know guys, I think Iâ€™ve been doing some deep thinking, in addition to some big-style travelling lately. So itâ€™s time for another Free-for-All Friday, which gives me a break and gives you some hand-picked good stuff to peruse. You remember, this is the post where Iâ€™m the cup-bearer making sure your pint of blog is tasty and not poisonous. (Last time it was a Saturday Surprise.)
Here are a few thoughts you might enjoy tasting over the weekend:
- On Cracker Barrel and Jesus with Neal.
- The Gypsy Mama talks about weaving Africa into the hearts of her kids from far away, and I feel like I am living the same thing, in reverse.
- Rejoice with Annie Beth in seeing how God can use the enemyâ€™s plans for His own good purposes.
Last, here is a tough one I want to share with you guys. I studied with this nice fellow, Steven, while at the University of Edinburgh, and Iâ€™m sorry to say I didnâ€™t get to know him better. He and his wife recently experienced a miscarriage, and it was their sixth miscarriage. How Steven has determined to walk through this grief with a desire to honour God — it is a testimony to the very power of Jesus at work in us and through us. I would love for you to take a moment to visit their blogs, hear their stories, and perhaps send a word of encouragement, or simply pray for them, and let them know youâ€™re praying. It is good for our souls when we learn to rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
As a word of promise that there’s more to come, especially with regard to photos of our recent adventures, I will leave you with a special shot from our visit to Kruger.
Look! What’s that over there?
Care to hazard a guess as to whether we got a closer look? Don’t forget Hero Hubs is (not) the Croc Hunter! 😉
