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.

  1. I tried Zicam once, and I ended up in the ER with dizziness. (I was pregnant.) I don’t know if it was the Zicam or not, but now I’m pretty skeptical about all that stuff. I know people swear by Airborne too, but I’m kind of wary of it.

  2. We’re doomed. I might as well stock up on the tissues and chicken stock now while I’m still reasonably healthy. Thanks. I’m sure I’ll get you back, though. We always do. As a matter of fact, this may be one of the first times we’re not responsible for YOUR ailments.

  3. Let me just say that I love you, in the most platonic way of course, for keeping your kids home from church while sick. I hope you feel better.
