Now that May is over and summer has unofficially begun I thought it would be cool to go back and look at your favorite blog post that you wrote or read this Spring.
If you’re a blogger, leave a comment with a link to your favorite blog post that you wrote in March, April, or May. If you’re not a blogger, leave a comment with a link to your favorite blog post on someone else’s blog during the Spring.
My favorite post that I wrote was Jesus, Like No Other.

You want an adventure of a life time. You dream about it. You think about what it would be and where it would be. You consider the cost. You save your pennies and dimes. You decide it’s worth the money and are ready to jump in. But, is it truly the greatest adventure? And, are you really willing to pay the price of the greatest adventure?
From “Wild Goose Chase” by Mark Batterson…
The rich young ruler written about in the Gospels had everything you could want – youth, wealth and power. However, he was still seeking something more. He came to Jesus asking what he must do to gain eternal life. Jesus told the man what it would cost. And, even though Jesus was offering so much more – the adventure of a life time and beyond – the rich young ruler … read more

“Courage is not the absence of fear; but, rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever; but, the cautious do not live at all.”
– Princess Diaries, the movie

I knew Truett Cathy as the founder of one of my favorite restaurants – a chain that can claim the highest quality in terms of business, ethics, food and customer service. I didn’t know that Truett Cathy was so much more than that. Now I do.
Truett Cathy’s book, “It’s Better To Build Boys Than Mend Men”, takes a simple, yet profound look, at the foundations necessary for raising respectable young men (and women) with great integrity and Biblical morals. Cathy begins with taking a look at a fatherless world. He states that “children all around us are growing up without strong positive guidance from their parents, who are busy, distracted, absent, or who choose to be buddies instead of parents to their children.” And, he sets the premise that “God wants to work through you to change the life of a child.” read more
The Power of a Praying Kid by Stormie Omartian is a book written for kids and provides a foundation for helping kids address some tough areas of life. An introduction, written for parents, sets the stage telling us that a child’s prayers are just as powerful as an adults because it is all God’s power. Kids just need to know that God is real, will listen, and will answer our prayers. The author also reminds us of Jesus’ heart for children and states that “you never know when you might need a prayer as powerful, pure, and faith-filled as a child’s.”
“Passion about nothing is like pouring gasoline in a car with no wheels – it isn’t going to lead anybody anywhere.”

“What I believe is not what I say I believe; what I believe is what I do.”

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude is more than facts; it’s more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances and failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, it will cause a church to soar or sink. It will be the difference between a happy home and a home of horror. It’s attitude, and the remarkable thing is, you have a choice every day regarding the attitude you will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the tick of the clock and we cannot change the march towards death. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitables. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me, and 90 percent how I respond to it.”
–Charles R. Swindoll
