I've had this blog for a month! My Torah class this morning was just canceled! I have all of spring break to finish my Mosaic discourse reading (Seconding Sinai for those who were wondering)! Wesley is handing out free cookies tonight at Swem! Could this day be any better? Did I just make a Friends (or Chandler) reference? Even I don't know!
To celebrate having a blog for a month, here are five of my favorite blogs* that you should also be reading if you aren't already:
1. EV'RY DAY I'M PASTORIN'... by I don't know who, because it's anonymous. Basically, it's the funniest thing ever, and I check it daily for new funnies. This post specifically, because if marriage has come up in a conversation between you and me, you know this is a fear of mine.
2. any day a beautiful change by Katherine Willis Pershey, also known as my church's associate pastor. She is awesome and has been so great in my discernment process (and will continue to be a huge help, I imagine). So read!
3. Clearly, I think you should read Rachel Held Evans' blog. Do I even need to explain? Have you seen all the posts I made the weekend she was here?
4. Sarah Bessey is also very awesome. I can't remember when I found her blog, but oh wow I love it. Rumor has it her first book is coming out this year. Rumor being on her website. Go read.
5. And finally, Always A'Musing by my lovely friend and fellow Wesleyite Erin. She is hilarious (like, hilarious) and has some pretty cool insights for this Lenten season and just on faith in general. Go read!
*Note: This list is not exhaustive. Not even close.
Okay. One last thing. Listen to this. If you've never heard it, you're welcome. If you have, listen more. The very end gets me every time. This movie was my childhood (seriously, when other kids were watching The Little Mermaid ad nauseam, I was watching The Prince of Egypt). This movie is even better now that I'm older. The music is stunning. Go forth and listen now, please.
Oh, and thank you for reading. I really can't express how much I appreciate it. Suffice it to say that if you hadn't been reading, this blog probably would have died somewhere in Week Two. So far it's lasted twice that long, and I for one am thoroughly enjoying it (and sincerely hope you are, too). Here's to more!
