Each weekend, I like to share articles or posts that I consider noteworthy during my week of reading (blogs or otherwise around the web), whether they encourage, challenge, inspire, or just flat-out make me laugh. Sometimes these are “current” links (recently written), and sometimes they’re older articles that I just happened to stumble upon in the past week. I hope you enjoy!
How to live an exceptional life, even when life doesn’t feel exceptional by Kat Lee – This quote says it all:
“So how do we live wildly, bravely and exceptionally in the midst of the ordinary? The dinners that need to be cooked, the noses needing to be wiped and the bills that need to be paid?
We do it by living with wild, exceptional excellence in the small things.“
The One Thing You Can Do by Edie Wadsworth – Edie is always a breath of fresh air, but especially in the midst of all the sorrow and ugliness that has swirled around us recently, on a domestic and an international level, her comforting and centering words brought tears of gratitude as I remembered that we still serve a sovereign God, One Who shows up in our lives in spite of the ugliness.
Less internet – but more what? by Crystal Ellefsen – I don’t necessarily read a lot of poetry (although I should, and I love Crystal’s reasoning behind why she chose poetry!), but recently, I have started to intentionally pull a book out of my purse instead of my phone when I’m waiting for something and have a few minutes to absorb some good words.
