Well, it’s the last week of summer. We spent the day at my parents’ house, where the kids and their cousins ate too much, ran all day, played in water, screamed too loud, and basically enjoyed being kids. It was a great day.
For something a little different today, I wanted to give you a few links that I’ve run across this past week that I thought were especially good.
How Quiet Marriages May Be the Most Exciting Marriages of All. First, this piece by Gary Thomas spoke to me. I love marriage, and I love my marriage. Marriage doesn’t have to be a detriment to our spiritual lives. On the contrary, in fact!
On Showing Your Waist Grace. I also loved this beautiful work of art from Lisa-Jo Baker. Mamas, just read it. Guys, read it and then promptly go hug your wife and your mother.
And, I’m not saying this is especially good, but if you would like to wallow with me in the sadness that is the end of summer, you might relate to this one that I wrote last year: Why I Don’t Do a Happy Dance on the First Day of School.
Four days of summer left! I plan to make the most of them!
