Friday, with a cup of coffee | 26

Coffee_time_ii_by_azuziUnknown source, otherwise I would give it.

It's about time, isn't it about time for Friday, with a cup of coffee?

It's about time I share some really good stuff to savor and ponder and delight in around the world wide web where we can sometimes get lost in the treachery, deceit, and hate but, where, if we look for it, seek out the good, we will find it.

Here's just a few...of the really good stuff I have found, because...because I have to find the good. It is not always evident at first glance. But, when I look for the good I WILL find it:

Sarah Bessey, who I had no idea who she was until I saw an 'if you're in my city, my church is hosting Sarah Bessey...' on Facebook. So I looked her up. If an author or speaker has a blog I like to read it to get a feel for, maybe, who they might be. Blogs can sometimes be deceiving but if someone is true enough, vulnerable enough, we can still find the real person behind the blog by reading what they write. I think this is someone I'd like to listen to or read more from. She challenges the status quo. I might not agree with everything she writes but I don't have to. I can still listen. I read this blog post called Rumours of the Real. I. Was. Blown. Away! I can't stop thinking about it.

This is how we should 'take a knee'. This is why we should take a knee.

I've usually heard those little known facts about NCIS but there are some in this enlightening list I didn't know. How fun!

Relational conflict? Here's why and how to handle it.

What a very interesting article on not teaching your kids to say I'm sorry, but teaching empathy and compassion, instead.

What a wonderful idea! I wonder if this is something our city (communities) would appreciate. Little Free Libraries! (Note: I think this would be an amazing Eagle Scout Project!) I wonder if my Eagle Scouts, my hubby, my son-in-law would build be one of these for our front lawn - for our neighborhood.

The World Feels Awful...then I read this.

Here are 18 things you can do right now to make yourself happier. I can attest to many of these, but especially, watching the sunrise. I do this almost every day of the week and it is glorious.

I hope you have enjoyed our jaunt around the world wide web and leave inspired and uplifted.
