The blogging world seems somewhat slow this week. Is it my imagination? Or perhaps the combination of the Memorial Day weekend and the onset of summer? Whether real or imagined, I’m going to take advantage of the lull by mentioning a mistake I made last week—a mistake made when I wrote in the middle of the night on May 19. I mixed up the names of two blogs—and anyone following through would have been confused.
Because the mistake concerned a blog, I’m going to highlight not only the two of interest—but a few more that I didn’t get to last time around. If you’re interested in looking these up, go to the sidebar on the left where you’ll see a segment titled, Links and Blogs I Visit. Scroll down to the title that interests you and click.
So, on May 19 I mentioned Yesterday, Today, and Forever—and said it would be a joy to anyone with ties to agriculture. Wrong blog. While Yesterday, Today and Forever could bless someone connected to the farm community, farming is not part of its content. I meant to direct readers to Getting Down with Jesus. (The mistake has been corrected in the posting.)
Getting Down with Jesus comes from a gal who’s worked professionally as a reporter for a major newspaper. She and her husband left it the city to return to his family’s farm—where they worship at a local country church with their two young girls. She has a gentle spirit that probes interesting ideas. And she’s an excellent writer.
(I’m not sure if I just stumbled on this track, but it seems many of the bloggers I visit are young stay-at-home mothers. For some of them, blogging is a way to connect with the outside world. It also offers a place to write creatively.)
The blog I mentioned by mistake—and which I’d planned to bring up next month—seems unique to me because the lady’s children are adults—and she has grandchildren. Someone I can identify with. Although I’m quite sure she’s not as old as I am, she’s above the norm age-wise, and I appreciate that.
That’s why I’ve found her format so amazing. My approach is to keep everything as simple as possible. She’s rather complex—but I’m getting better at finding my way around. To find her original material I have to click stuff and the learning curve keeps presenting itself. Let me just say, I enjoy it when I do. Of additional interest on the site are her ties to her homeland and her translations of German hymns. So I keep learning new things on several fronts.
If you’re looking for something short to pick you up, try Today’s Inspiration. These posts (by a fellow this time) can also be received via email—the easy way to do things—and his morning offerings have been exactly what I needed on more than one occasion.
Yvette from A Journey Through His Garden posts only occasionally, but when she does, she’s worth reading. She’s also adjusted to a different country, and she includes stories about her family. Then, there’s her poetry.
On a totally different track, Conversation in Faith is written by a veterinarian with a wealth of material on medical issues. This is pure information. She’s been covering ramifications of health-related scenarios. I’ve not kept up, but I keep going back when I can because I find her material—as well as the many links she provides—helpful and interesting.
Finally, this time around I want to mention Tiffany Ann Lewis. My link takes you to her website. However, I’m highlighting her now because her recent Monthly Manna offered such a beautiful picture of God’s grace. To make sure I don’t miss this monthly material, I’ve subscribed to it by email as well.
