Light Friday Hit List: 12/17/10
Rounding up posts from around the web that challenged, inspired, encouraged, made me laugh, or all of the above. Be sure to check out these favorites and tell them I sent you!
And for even more great posts and favorites, be sure to visitÂ Kevin Martineauâ€™s blog as well. The list was a little shorter this week as I was out of town and had a day-off yesterday. Hope you enjoy though!
- The waitress story by Marshall Jones Jr. (BondChristian).Â Great analogy on how we can end up interfering when we’re trying to help God out.
- Make a joyful noise by Billy Coffey (Katdish.net). There’s a reason for all that crazy singing. Billy gives us plenty to chew on as always. Great stuff.
- From Throne to Barn by Jennifer Dukes Lee (Getting Down with Jesus). There are so many powerful Christmas-themed posts all around this year–no trite expressions of “what we should say.” Jennifer does such an excellent job describing the sacrifice of heaven for the redemption of humanity.
- Imagining Chains by Glynn Young (Faith, Fiction, Friends). Â Powerful poem with a powerful message. Also loved Glynn’s story,Â Witness: The Innkeeper written from the point-of-view of the inn owner who gave Mary and Joseph the stable to sleep in.
- Spiritual Calisthenics by Tony Alicea (TonyJAlicea.com). Going through the disciplines to prepare us for what’s ahead. It’s not fun, but the end is good!
- A Gift of Compassion by Sandra Heska King (SandraHeskaKing.com). I’ve participated in something like this before and this went right along with my urgency post for that same day (in a practical sense). Love when it works out like that!
- Rejoice by Ginny (Make a Difference to One). I so appreciate Ginny’s wisdom here in all the season has to offer and preparing for it year round. Wonderful reminders.
- Worldâ€™s Best Christmas Letter by Matt Appling (The Church of No People). Matt is always funny with a point. He shows us how to write the world’s best Christmas letter (probably why he gave the post that title).
This week’s random pic is a little sad. Everyone remember Herbie? You know, the love bug? Well, after they finished making the movies, they put him out to pasture– in the most literal sense.
May your weekend be filled with God’s life and presence in increasing measure. Praying that as you meet with other believers there will be a wonderful outpouring of grace!
