Link Love

If you read nothing else on the internet this weekend, have it be these two posts.  I love these women.  I love their words. I love their hearts.  I love that they don’t waste it.

Decorating Truths from a 15 year old Tanzanian Boy – by Nester.  She warned us.  Ahead of time.  And still my breath caught in my throat and my eyes filled with tears in an instant.  Because you can’t make this stuff up.  This is what matters you guys.  God is good.  All the time.  No matter what.

Where is the mommy-war for the motherless child? – by Kristen Howerton.  You’ve seen the cover of Time Magazine by now, right?  It has been a FIRESTORM of controversy.  People are talking about it ad nauseum.  (If you have no idea what I’m talking about, a quick google search will give you MORE than you can imagine on something that’s only been around for a few days.)  And I’ve been bewildered by the attention.  All I can think is: WHY DOES THIS MATTER???  WHO THE HECK CARES???  Why is this what gets people all fired up and lights their passion to share, discuss, and publicize??? I was about to write a whole post about it…until Kristen beat me to it…and pretty much summed up exactly what I’ve been thinking all week.

And by the way, yes Time…I am Mom enough. 

Mom enough to care more about what matters in eternity than your silly cover.

And then share.  THIS is what people should be talking about all over Facebook.  THIS is what people should be inundating discussion boards with.  THIS is what should be lighting people up into a thither.

Does it make YOU come alive with passion?

I'm a mom to four. A wife to one. I believe in story. I love telling you about mine and would love to hear yours. There's really no sense in wasting our suffering and not sharing in each other's joy. We're all in this together...even if it doesn't always feel like it.
