Happy weekend, everybody! I’m in Texas for a couple days playing and singing and eating more Tex-Mex than you’d believe is humanly possible. But it is possible. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ve seen me do it.
While I’m away, here are the best things I’ve discovered on-line this week…
- Strawberries teach a farmer’s wife the very best way to schedule a life. With some help from Google. Beautiful pictures and counter-intuitive wisdom there.
- I think every blogger who travels with me overseas is brave – leaving home and family and routine for the unknown is frightening for all os us. But I had no idea how afraid Layla was when I invited her to join us in Peru in November. Entertainingly neurotic…and I mean that in the nicest way.
- I don’t like small talk either, Emily. And I too marvel at how my insides and outsides don’t match up so much of the time. A vulnerable challenging post made a woman but strong enough for a man.
- Maggie finally did something with all that fabric we trekked all over Tanzania to find. And what’s she made can be yours…and it benefits Compassion International too.
- Forgive the title on this one and take in the post. A guy in Portland walks into a coffee shop and meets the guy whose invention makes it possible for me to write to you – far away – right now from here. And, as it turns out, he’s as inspiring as he is smart.
- As the dad of a great athlete, I can think of few better compliments he could be paid than “He’a a 250 pound Ghandi who will run you over.” Hall-of-Famer Howie Long with those creative kind words and more for his favorite second string football player.
