Good Morning! I hope you are enjoying your summer so far. I’d like to ask for your prayers about the wildfires here is Colorado. There are many people evacuated and there is so much destruction already. Please pray for God’s peace and protection on those affected and those who are fighting the fire. Thank you.
Here are some great blog posts from this week.
Kisses and Kiddos
Hold That Line – The Generous Wife has a great post about the importance of keeping boundaries in place around your marriage.
The De-Masking of Prince Charming – Yes, this subject has been covered before in countless articles. But it is rare to see such a healthy and Biblical perspective like the one displayed in this post from The Romantic Vineyard.
Parents Don’t Have to be Perfect– This post from To Love, Honor, and Vacuum has an excellent list of reality checks and a lot of grace for parents struggling under the (false) expectation of perfection.
Eli the Encourager – I love this post from mamacravings about appreciating a little one’s talent for encouraging.
Cooking with Cast Iron – This Art of Manliness post is a great overview of cast iron pans: how to cook with them, season them, clean them, and care for them. There are even a couple recipes included!
Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Cherry Barbecue Sauce – The Foodie Bride brings this recipe for homemade sandwich that looks to die for. While I’m not big on cherries, I bet this sauce could convince me otherwise.
Patriotic Summer Berry Cake – This cake from Bakingdom is drop-dead gorgeous and full of fresh berries. Amazing.
Strawberry Lemonade Slushies– Only 4 ingredients to this frozen non-alcoholic treat from That’s What We Said. I think I need to make these as soon as possible.
Just for Fun and Giggles
Along Came Polly– I was cracking up reading this post from The Meat and Potatoes of Life. The pictures alone are priceless.
How to Frame Your Bathroom Mirror – This great step-by-step tutorial over at A Step In the Journey has easy instructions and great before and after photos. This seems like a great weekend project for adding some character to a boring mirror.
I couldn’t resist a grammar related funny:
Enjoy your weekend!
