Friday Faves

thmb572ca55393568Happy Friday!  It’s been a very trying week.  I’ve been ill, really sick, for most of the week.  You know the kind of sick that stops everything in its tracks and leaves you so weak all you can do is just lie down and hope it passes soon.  It also gave me way to much time to think about an incident that happened last week.  Don’t delude yourself into believing that only kids are bullied.  I really didn’t recognize it as such until I read this awesome post by Mindy over at the Oil of Myrrh Blog.   satan uses our insecurities to give power to others.  Let me tell you that will stop right now.  Praise God!

Target4Rebekah at Ready To Be Offered has written a post of which we should all be taking note. In Target, Transgenderism, and Toughest Love she comments, “…Christ’s sacrifice  was too costly — and I cheapen grace when I make light of His Word by supporting those who do–”  Her choice to not support large businesses that support the LGBT life-style is encouraging and timely.  Well written Rebekah!

praise-1154566_960_720Can you imagine a world that was hopeful, compassionate, full of grace and mercy, thinking of the other person first, forgiving, loving and prayerful?  This beautiful post at Chasing Holiness uses Francesca Battistelli’s beautiful song Holy Spirit as the framework for a series of ‘what if’ questions that would be world changing if practised.

Blessings to you and yours!
