Thinking of you this morning as I sit in my corner office (ha! I’m so funny) and share with you some favorite links from the Internet this week. I admit there are some days when I want to burn the laptop right up and become one of those people who doesn’t know how to spell “blog.” But today is not one of those days. Today, I’m deeply thankful for this space to connect with you, to talk about the gracefulness of the everyday and the sacredness of our inner lives.
Am I making up words by putting “ness” on them? I don’t even care! Thanks for sticking around here even when I disappear for a while.
Here’s something: I finished another book (!!) and you’ll be hearing about it soon. I don’t think I mentioned that here yet. Whoops. I turned it in this week and I’m all Look! It’s almost Christmas! I’m a human person! God bless us everyone!
So thanks to you for sticking with Chatting at the Sky even when there isn’t much chatting happening. Here are a few good reads (and listens) for your weekend:
How to Travel as a Highly Sensitive Person by Tsh Oxenreider – I’m all “Oh I’m not highly sensitive at ALL” and then I go and take the test she links to and score 19 out of a possible 27. Not off the charts but definitely sensitive. Very interesting.
Christmas: Not all Peace and Joy by Dr. David G. Benner – His words always remind me of what I already know but need to remember. Maybe they’ll do the same for you.
God Rest Us Merry Annie Downs on The Hope*ologie Podcast – Dad, Myquillyn, and I sit down with Annie and ask her how she got to be so merry. Her answer is more intentional than you might think.
Sister*ologie – Every month my sister and I sit down and record silliness, idiocy, and all sorts of ridiculation for Hope*ologie members in The Sister*ologie Podcast. This month Dad put together a two minute teaser where we share about The Best Christmas Gift In The History Of Christmas Gifts.
