I love reading new blogs! Maybe you do too, so I thought I would share some fun posts I’ve read lately.
Recently my pastor Nathan Tarr and his wife Devon adopted their Ethiopian daughter Brielle. Nathan’s post really shows the spirit of adoption. He beautifully compares Brielle’s adoption to how God the Father has adopted us. During the adoption process Nathan and Devon had to take two trips to Ethiopia to finalize the adoption. Nathan compares this to Jesus’ two comings. Through showing the Father’s heart, Nathan accentuates the glory of what Christ has done for us through the cross. This post is a “must read”!
Another blog post my friend Nicole Schroeder wrote made me laugh so I thought I’d share it. It is about southern verbage. I remember when I was fifteen my parents told me we were moving to Tennessee. After I quit panicking and figured out where Tennessee actually was, I ended up enjoying meeting new people just because of the way they talked.
Coming from Arizona, I had only heard a southern accent one time in my whole life. I had to learn that when my high school friend said “wait on me” she really meant “wait for me.” This was a great relief to me, I thought she wanted me to “serve” her a coke or something. But if I would have asked her about a “coke” I would have been confused when she said sure I’ll take a Dr. Pepper. I had to learn that “coke” can be any kind of soda: Sprite, Root Beer, or even Mountain Dew. Nicole does a great job defining many of the terms that may confuse us west coasters! I wish I would have had read her post when I first moved!
The last post I wanted to share is about a bed time story that you should never read to your children. Many times I scan Elias’ bookshelf to find something to read, but I assure you the book that Todd VanDyke takes time to describe will never make it on his shelf. Through adding humorous commentary to a child’s bedtime story Todd’s post becomes delightfully comical.
