A Bundle of Myrrh

Five Favorites

September 11th, 2013 by Aubri

Joining Camp Patton for this week’s favorites.

I came across some really good posts this week so I had to share them, added are great quotes from each:


1. Hard Times, Pretty Pictures: “I post beauty, even when life is ugly.  For me, it’s the only way. Blogs have a way of deceiving, but that’s only if you choose to read them that way.  It’s a choice.  You can read that I stopped for cherries, and make all sorts of assumptions, or you can simply be reminded that we all have our good moments–you and me.” Ginny


2.  Does It Get Easier? : “You are in a season of sowing seeds.  Accept that the fruit comes later.” Amy


3. Courage In the Ordinary: “But I’ve come to the point where I’m not sure anymore just what God counts as radical. And I suspect that for me, getting up and doing the dishes when I’m short on sleep and patience is far more costly and necessitates more of a revolution in my heart than some of the more outwardly risky ways I’ve lived in the past. And so this is what I need now: the courage to face an ordinary day” AND “But for those of us — and there are a lot of us — who are drawn to an edgy, sizzling spirituality, we need to embrace radical ordinariness and to be grounded in the challenge of the stable mundaneness of the well-lived Christian life.” Tish

4. My 4th favorite thing this week is this drawing Clara did at school. I love that Ephraim looks like he’s sitting on the floor peeking out from behind me. And I’m glad Lily didn’t notice that she doesn’t have legs. She was very upset the last time Clara drew her without HAIR.



5. If you have a picky eater you’ll know why I’m thrilled to add this 5th favorite. Last night Lily tried roasted potatoes for supper…and LIKED THEM. She’s a big lover of french fries of course but has never attempted potatoes in any other form. I did let her dip them in Ketchup, but ain’t no shame in that! She was pretty proud of herself…I was too.
