Saturday Sampling March 17, 2012

Better late than never.  It is still technically Saturday, right?!  It has been a strange and sad week in our family with three funerals in eight days… 

Here is what is quickly becoming one of my favorite things to do each week…finding some of my favorite blogs to share on the Saturday Sampling! 

Here is a sampling of some posts from this past week that inspired me, educated me, or made me think.

Do you think I missed anything significant?  I try to look for variety.  Can you help me with that?  Please post any of your recommendations below so we can all benefit!

I celebrate thankful Thursday, too!  If you haven’t read this author you are missing out.  Start with her blog and then move on to Cold Tangerines.

An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess

This post reminds me of the book Kisses From Katie.  Both have challenged me.  I want to read the book that this blogger has written.

As a big proponent of the family dinner (or breakfast…or lunch…) I was glad to have someone identify my own passion on this topic.


I could very much relate to the feelings expressed here. Sometimes there is a fine line between stewarding opportunities and being “scattered”.
