As I am on my third funeral since returning from vacation I am still digging out from the pile on my desk all while I am dumping on it! I laugh in the face of the Ordinary Time deadline and dare it to make me stress!!! HA! HA! HA!
So here is a brief round-up. Please add yours to the comments. I know people check that thing!
Tammy Jo encourages us to pray for Mike.
A Church for Starving Artists makes a great statement: "The problem is not that you disagree about the issues. The problem is that you don't love the people." Her context is The West Wing and a Presbytery meeting.
Katherine blogs about tough texts.
Bad Alice gives us this fine quote: (Have I mentioned that no matter what time Firecracker goes to bed, or how busy her day, at 10 pm I will find her sitting up in bed, bright-eyed, playing with a car?) during her post about why she hates mornings.
bethquick blogs about her favorite author, Barbara Kingslover.
blanket in the grove blogs about saying nothing and one post lower about being a 'non-anxious presence.'
Brother Terry blogs about losing Jimmy. Why he chose this topic when he is surrounded in cyberspace by mostly women is beyond me.
Balancing out the gender wars begun by Brother Terry... Cathy gives us a Spanish Christening Shawl Update.
Chaplain Mom is installed! Congrats!
Cheesehead blogs about her kids, herself and The Spotlight.
Just a reminder that blogger is going down at 4PM PST. I fully plan to use that 15 minutes or so as my excuse for EVERYTHING that does not get doen this week.
