Readers Choice from last week:
"Shine Your Sink"

This was shared by Jen over at Extra*Ordinary.  She shared encouragement if you "are feeling overwhelmed or behind with your housework... just start with the sink.  You'll be amazed at the difference.  AND you'll be amazed at the discipline."  

Also Featured this week:
"A Dollar & Some Change"

I was thoroughly encouraged by this post, shared by Donna over at Fully Mothering. She shared on " God’s provision. God’s love in action."
Here is an excerpt of what she shared:
I’m sure this woman, and the cashier along with anyone else in line, thought I was making a huge deal about  just $1.17…and I was.
But it wasn’t about the amount. It was about the act.
This woman had blessed me. She allowed herself to be, whether she knew it or not, yet another example of God’s provision for us.
She made my day!

...This woman had looked outside of her own bubble and saw a need, just as my friends had. Not a big need, but a need, and had acted on it. Something we don’t see often enough. Something we don’t do often enough.

Something I don’t do often enough.

It was a gentle reminder of love. Love for others. A reminder to look outside of my own bubble. My own family. My own needs.

Sure, my family is hurting…a lot. But we’re not the only ones. Many people are in need or hurting. In fact, MOST people are, and if we just open our eyes, get out of our comfortable little bubble and pay attention, we’ll see opportunities. Opportunities to love. To bless. To fulfill a need.

It may be your friend who is going through difficult times and could use some groceries, or it may just be the hurting stranger in front of you in line at the store.

Who knows? Maybe $1.17 is all it will take to make someone’s day.

Give thanks to the Lord!  His love endures forever!

  1. Thank you so much for sharing my post! I was in shock when I saw this. I am still humbled and baffled at the fact that my writing inspires anyone in any way. You have blessed me and made my day :)


I'm thrilled you've stopped by for a visit! I hope you feel as though we're sittin' together on my front porch while drinkin' somethin' warm; simply sharin' life with transparency. :)
