Winsome Wednesday 1.6.16

"It's Taco Tuesday! Except... on a Wednesday!!! But still called Taco Tuesday!!!" If you don't have Lego-obsessed children who have watched the Lego Movie a million times, just ignore that quote and enjoy my Winsome Wednesday (except on a Thursday.)

Philippians 4:8 Amplified
Brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

Lovely and Lovable Owls
Owls: Our Most Charming Bird by Matt Sewell has won me over with cute meets witty in the forest. I highly recommend it for nature and bird lovers. You can read my review here.

Is It OK to Ask?
Considering my #oneword is "Ask" I thought this was an interesting post by Teresa Blythe, in which she expounds on an episode of King of Queens (which I've never watched) to explore how God handles our most frivolous prayers. Her response is freeing to those who can't shake seemingly shallow longings.

Prayer of the Imagination
Woodland Hills Pastor Greg Boyd's sermon on Wonder was part of his pre-Christmas sermon series. So I'm a little behind on everything, but don't let that put you off. He supplies an antidote to our human tendency to lose our sense of wonder as we age. Listen to his suggestions for tapping into the sehnsucht in your heart. And... learn what this German word means!

You Are My One Thing

Asking might be my "one word" but Jesus is always my "one thing." So maybe it's a little weird to refer to Jesus as a "thing" even if He's the one and only... but this video and song from Bethel music gives me all the feels. And what a location for a worship gathering! Enjoy!
