How Not To Become An Old Biddy - This is the top blog post I read this week! I'll be turning 50 this year, so the topic of aging is much on my mind. Barbara gives excellent, scriptural advice on growing old graciously - no matter what your age now. You are becoming right now the woman you will be. Don't be an old biddy!
Ten Things That Will Improve Your Life - I appreciated this back-to-basics type post that reminded me of the priority of my walk with God, while at the same time reminding me that it's not all about a list of do-good-things that will make me acceptable to God.
Intimacy or Familiarity - Another great reminder that walking with God is meant for intimacy with Him, not just familiarity. There is no substitute!
7 Lessons From 50 Shades of Grey - I haven't read the book and do not plan to watch the movie, but apparently millions of people have and will. I believe this blog entry is important to read. Not pretty. Not fun. Not entertaining. But so very necessary.
8 Lessons From the School of Prayer - This is a great article - and very convicting - about prayer and the lack of it in our lives. Good read!
Praying For Adult Children - This one resonated with me because . . . well, I have adult children! Many of you do also, and if you have small children now, someday they will be adults!
A few crafty things:
Free Patterns to Sew For Valentine's Day - A few patterns and tutorials for Valentine's crafts.
15-Minute Pillow With French Seams - This looks very easy, even if you're a beginning seamstress.
The Most Popular Valentine's Day Ideas and Printables - Tons of good stuff here!
14 Snacks You Can Make at Home Instead of Buying - You just might find something here you want to try!
