Links You'll Love

Coffee Sugar Cookies @ i am baker
It's not too early to think about Valentine's Day! I recently found this blog and love it! How clever to surprise your sweet woobie with a cookie for his coffee!

Acting Surprised When God Doesn't Seem Close
@ Stuff Christians Like
How am I shocked when my choices have consequences?

Rock Stars and the Rest of Us: A Parable @ Shlog
Whether you're up front or behind the scenes, what you do matters. Great insight.

Defining Organized, Clean, Sanitary, Sterile @ Home Ec 101
Which one, if any, describes your goal for housekeeping?

And by the way, who among you even knows what Home Economics is? It was required for all high school girls 'back in the day' when I was in high school and was the class where we learned to sew aprons and make cinnamon toast. My final project was making a pair of culottes (don't ask). I worked very hard (to be sure I would get an 'A' in the class) and turned them in with great pride. Then my Home Ec teacher asked me where the zipper was. She turned the waistband around and around - no zipper! Since I had put that zipper in close to ten times to be sure it was perfect, I couldn't believe it. Turns out I had put it in the bottom hem.
Would anyone like me to do any tailoring for you?
Just let me know.

Death Is Not Dying
A moving, heart-wrenching but eternal perspective. This video is almost an hour long so you'll need to set aside some time but it's well worth it!
"Rachel's story is not unlike what thousands of women around the world have experienced. A diagnosis that changes a woman's life and inevitably takes from her what we consider to be most precious. After four and a half years of vigilantly fighting breast cancer, the 37 year old wife and mother of two was diagnosed with terminal cancer. But for Rachel the essence of life is found in her relationship with God through Jesus. And that's why Rachel is convinced that death is not dying."
Rachel went home to the Lord in July 2009. She was 37 years old, wife of 10 years and mother of two.

Oh Becky...I laughed and laughed about your zipper. Maturity brings with it a wider view hopefully. When was the last time you had to zip your hem?? You are too funny! Nancy B.

Oh wow, that is a fantastic Home Ec story. Thank you so much for linking to Home-Ec 101. It's always nice to hear from other people who, like me, try so hard and still manage to mess things up.

Becky, I spent this afternoon listening to Rachael Barkey. Thank you so much for publishing this link. I have shared it already with several other women and hope to use it to mentor to my daughter-in-law. The book list and links are also very worthwhile. Very impactful! Nancy
