Welcome to my eclectic journey of my life and delights. This year my theme is surrendering my writing pen to the true author, Jesus Christ, while looking forward to the future, reflecting on the past and dancing through my journey.

Oh Let Me Tell You!

google clipart
When I get together with my friends we start to babble and share life.  It usually consist of talking about our families and then we move on to what we have read, seen and  learned.  So today I wanted  to share with you...what Benjamin's class calls "Show and Tell".  I could never tell you all the blog post which teach me, convict me, inspire me or make me laugh, so today I will just share just a few from this week.

Oh! Susan at My Place to Yours made me laugh.  This post is right on.  The other thing I enjoy about Susan is the fact that we both grew up in the same city, graduated the same year from high school and can share some past milestones, even though we have never met. There is even a possibility our parents crossed paths also.  We have now crossed paths in the blog world and she lives a few states away.  Maybe one day we will meet.  In this post she is sharing a milestone I am walking in also.
Did You Earn Your Merit Badge?  You will laugh and find out if you have earned your Merit Badge.

Petra at This Good Steward just seems to always convict and inspire. I  usually leave her post in deep thought as I feel "the iron sharpening my iron".  Her writing inspires me to hear from God through her words, usually on multiple levels.  Cute Cupcakes are not the Problem...well it nails it.

Cecilia at Out of the Closet and Into the Light...now how do I say this, well she challenges me to new levels of spiritual depth.  It is very rare for me to come away from her blog and not want to say, "okay God I heard you loud and clear....and now I am responsible."  I would say her post on Ego ranks in my top 10 and propelled a wonderful discussion around our dinner table.

I could fill a page of posts that the Lord has used in my life, to correct, convict, inspire, encourage and draw me closer to Him.  Thank you all for blogging...I am one who is blessed by you!  I hope you enjoy..if you haven't already visited these posts this week.

My past post on "fake" dress-up items - Is She Real?  http://www.janettessage.blogspot.com/2010/09/is-she-real.html    My response to the younger generation.

My response to what is happening with my own looks - Painting My Barn - The Older Version   http://www.janettessage.blogspot.com/2010/09/painting-my-barn-older-version.html
                     
Both are for a laugh....if you haven't joined me on these post before....I invite you to enjoy the laugh.


I will be back after Memorial Day to show what a girl, who is trying to find a life, does with a door, bookshelf, banister post, and a sheet of plywood. I know...I truly need to find something better to do with my time, but for now, let's create.  See you next week.  Happy Memorial Day...and thanks to all those who have served, still serving and their families.

Have a great weekend, Janette! Thanks for all the fun links.:)

Sonja said...

I have to agree with you completely. Sometimes when I read through these blogs I feel like I've been to a women's retreat, of the best kind.

And always, humor is woven into the blogs that I love the best. It's a picture of MY life through another's eyes, with new ideas and perspectives all the time.

And I can say for sure that your blog is one of my favorites!

My comment disappeared with an error page. Grrrr.

I am, like you, inspired by so many of my blogging buddies. My life is richer and I think more about my actions and my words.

I've got to kick over to If The Barn Needs painting post. That's one of Steve's sayings. :)
