Our thoughts and prayers go out to those in Moore, Oklahoma who were devastated by yesterday’s F4 tornado. But among the wreckage was this important reminder about what our lives should focus on.
I got a nice little surprise before I went to bed last night. I found out that my blog was linked to and sort of featured on WordPress’ Weekly Writing Challenge! This led to a number of people checking out my blog for the first time, and some new followers, which I’m very excited about! Thanks to WordPress for the shout out!
This week’s edition of links is one day later than normal because I was out of town for the long weekend enjoy time with family and friends. For those who are new to the blog, all of the links included in my weekly round-up are not necessarily endorsements of the views expressed in those links; sometimes I link to pieces of writing that I just find interesting and thought-provoking.
