Let's Pretend it's Saturday


I had every intention of posting this over the weekend, but the view kept getting in my way...

Alas, here it is, all the important stuff to start your week!


:: You guys about slayed me dead with your comments on the post I wrote about The Good Story. See how vibrant we are? See what a creative genius God is with the way He speaks directly to our hearts and births these wild, hopeful dreams in each of us? (Hey, Emily Kate, you won the t-shirt! Email me at shannandmartin at gmail)

:: Emily Freeman wrote a poignant post about self-reflection on the heels of this truthful post about Esther Emery's post about meeting Emily for the first time. It's a lot of E names, I know. But both perspectives left me sitting still and thinking long and hard. These women are my heroes.

:: I'm still kicking around this post at Grace Table, entitled Who is my Neighbor? "Christ explicitly calls us to extend our invitation and love towards those who have nothing to offer in return. We are to open the door and set a place at our table for those in need, who may be perhaps, the most difficult ones for us to invite." Am I inviting the most difficult ones? Or am I playing favorites? These are questions I hope I never stop asking myself.

:: I've been struck by an inexplicable urge to cook something with anchovies and I think this might fit the bill.

:: This pin and others like it are killing me softly because I find myself peony-less in late May. There's really no excuse.

:: This video by my current favorite band, Trampled by Turtles, is so worth watching. (Have I ever steered you wrong??)

Viva, Monday!
