Links for Friday

It’s evening, but still Friday, so I’m not too late, right? We had a good day: I talked to my sister Andrea for an hour and a half this morning, then we did some school – mostly reading, ran some errands, baked pumpkin muffins, and then Michelle and her boys came over for a few hours.

The boys have their first belt promotion test for Tae Kwon Do tomorrow, so we will be spending the entire afternoon at the dojang. I am excited for them – they have been working really hard. And Natalie has decided to quit ballet and join her brothers at TKD, so that eliminates one of our commitments on “crazy Wednesdays”. I’ll miss seeing my parents every Wednesday, but I’ll just have to find another time to drive down to Chewelah during the week.

Since everyone seems to be done with this flu-ish stuff, we’re going to visit a new church on Sunday. I’ve been there twice already and I really like it – I’m hoping the rest of the family feels the same way. Sunday night I’ll head to Mom and Dad’s for dinner and to watch the Oscars.

I have a few links to share, and for some reason, three of them are snarky posts about the state of the Church. I’m not in a snarky mood myself, honestly, but I couldn’t resist sharing them and waiting for the comments. ;)

~This guy’s blog makes me laugh and makes me think. I think Tonia was the one who pointed him out. Check out Mmm….Sacrilicious… and The Seven Habitrails of Highly Effective Churches.

~Think Christian posted this video.

~I can’t wait to see Amazing Grace: The Story of William Wilberforce. Click the link to watch a trailer.

~This video tickled me to pieces.

~This news article belongs in the “Well, duh!” files.

~Cindy at Dominion Family opened a can of worms with this post about books we’re supposed to love, but can’t stand. People are coming out of the closet against all sorts of books: Elsie Dinsmore, Mitford, A Tale of Two Cities, Stepping Heavenward, Narnia, Lord of the Rings – it’s crazy confession time! I don’t feel so bad about hating Gilead and The Poisonwood Bible anymore!

That’s all for this week – what are your plans for the weekend?


  1. Michelle

    Thanks for the links and the chuckle.

  2. Lisa

    Have a lovely weekend! *Smile*

    Plans? Just trying to keep it all together! *LOL*

  3. Randi

    Oh funny,

    I LOVED the Poisonwood Bible but I did dislike Gilead a great deal! Book-love is such a personal thing, isn’t it!

  4. Kev

    That Kamp Krusty blog is great! Thanks for the link.

    Michelle – you’re welcome!

    Lisa – I hear ya.

    Randi – It certainly is – and I have decided I won’t feel guilty anymore if I don’t love the books that everyone raves about.

    Kev – he’s funny, isn’t he?
