It’s already been a week since I returned to the States.
I’m still a little jet-lagged and trying to catch up on work and sleep. And I have a cold. And I’ve eagerly shared with anyone who asks about Uganda and Rwanda.
Yes, “re-entry” feels like being dropped in a bucket of cold water, and not just because it’s horrendously cold outside.
But wow, there have been some good things going around the blog-world this week. These were some of my favorites:
I couldn’t be more glad to see another group of bloggers in Uganda this week. Emily Freeman is blogging from Uganda and tells us ten things she’s learned.
One Night Stands
Tracee Persiko lays out the fallacy of a “one night stand” approach to relationships.
Everything for a Reason?
Dang it, Zack Hunt, you’ve done it again. You know how every time something bad happens, we try to comfort one another by saying it happens “for a reason?” Well, there’s a lot more to reality than that, and Zack does a great job dissecting this old cliche.
My friend, Ally Vesterfelt, tells us why it’s no good trying to overcome our weaknesses. Something I needed to read, big time.
Here’s to the Children
And why does the Kingdom of God belong to the children? Micah Murray tells us, and it’s really good.
It’s good to be back home, though a piece of my heart is still in Uganda. Those are few things that fueled me this week. What about you?
