Sunday Morning Linkage and a Prayer Request

A few of my favorite bloggers have posted some great food for thought this Sunday morning, so rather than come up with something of my own, I’ll just point you to theirs.

First, Boomama has an excerpt from Oswald Chambers’ My Utmost for His Highest on judging.

Then Barbara at Mommy Life has an excerpt from Elisabeth Elliot on Christlike love.

Finally, Jules at Everyday Mommy has a word of encouragement from the gospel of John.


Also, C and R have had what appears to be a pretty nasty summer cold this week.  Wouldn’t you know it, I am coming down with it myself.  I’m sure that allowing myself to get overtired and run down this week didn’t help my resistance much.

I’ll be staying home from church with them this morning in an attempt to contain our germyness.  (Dontcha like how I invent new words to suit my purposes?)  Anyway, if you think of it, would you say a prayer for my speedy recovery?  It’s nothing serious, obviously, but I’m feeling pretty wretched, and tomorrow I’m on my own again with all three of my hooligans.  It’s no fun trying to be a good mommy with a miserable cold.  Hopefully today will be the worst of it, and if I rest and stay hydrated, I can avoid getting a full-blown case of it.
