Monday’s thought for the day: “half a dozen good harmless worlds at once…”

I’m taking a break from my 15 minutes better theme, since I am trying to get some reallly serious writing time in this week. Instead this week I’d like to share a link a day for you to visit. I’ve got some thought-provoking stuff, and I’d love to hear from you after you’ve visited the posts I link.

Here’s my first link– it’s from an interesting blog I just discovered on Saturday, called Walk Slowly, Live Wildly. When I realized I’d read 6 pages of this gal’s archives and still wanted to click on another page, I knew I needed to add this blog to my daily reads. The post is called A Strange Dimness and it really got me thinking. I’d love to hear what you think!

  1. Thank you for that–that blog is awesome!

  2. Love Sara’s blog. I had missed this post, but it’s beautiful!

    I am chewing away at the thought that the light of Jesus is so powerful that only the truly substantial (worthwhile) activities can stand up under its strength. All else just fades away. Like an X-ray, showing the foundation beneath the exterior.

    And even the “worthwhile” can become strangely dim if it is not being done to His glory!

    Thanks…

  3. I thought the article was great and she had some nice things on her blog but also some political, inflammatory stuff that made me uncomfortable. I know people can put whatever they choose on their blogs, and so I am not being critical her, I was just not comfortable with the tone of the discussion in some of the articles and sunsequent comments and how it seems to go toward arguing and talking ugly about each other-I tend to steer clear of blogs where that goes on. I guess I am just not really a debate-lover-why can’t we all just get along ?! 🙂 But thank you for sharing the link to the article.

  4. Last spring, in a moment of clarity, I decided to give up most of my volunteer activities. I realized that I would have a senior, a 2nd grader, and a Kindergardener, and that I needed this year to pour into my children. God had his hand in it for sure-my husband was injured the first week back at school and I really needed all that time for my whole family. When I look at my family now so many other things have become dim-and with Jesus at the center it’s never been better! (Sorry if this is a little long!)

  5. I missed that one too. Thanks for linking to it. I couldn’t agree more.

  6. I like her post about “a strange dimness”. I looked at her more recent posts- I’m surprised by her other book choices in light of the post you linked to. But I agree wholeheartedly- keep Jesus the center and everything else is put into right perspective. Seek first the kingdom of God and everything else will just fall into place. 🙂

  7. I have Sara on my blog roll. I love her writing.
    🙂

  8. What a wonderful blog–thanks for sharing–I look forward to reading more of her writing.

  9. Yes, I too love Sara’s writings. She’s amazing – one I can’t get enough of!!!
