Weekly Smorgasbord

Y'all I am so, so late on this. This week has really kept me on my toes and my blog has been sadly neglected. I did think I'd (finally) go ahead and share last week's links:P

I think this is a very interesting post, in general. However, the thing I think that is the most interesting is that (at least in my experience) using the word "penis" is not really taboo, but using the word "vagina" almost always is.  I mean I have no problem saying something about a penis, but I literally cannot say vagina without feeling icky.  I never thought about it being a social construct.

"When the world tells you that you are not enough, you are lacking, you are deficient, look to the one who created you and know that these lies offer only counterfeits of true beauty."

 This post reminds me of a post that I wrote once on beauty. I love Alia's words

Maybe I'm more crunchy than I realize. This tugged at my heart so much.

"I think that wherever you are with kids, you're always at capacity. When I had one kid, I was at capacity. When I had two kids, I was at capacity. Now I'm at capacity at four..I think it's the Lord that grows our capacity with each child He blesses us with."

"I think we could debate all day about whether or not their choice to focus on advocacy vs. aid is the best use of resources, but the bottom line is, they are filmmakers and this is how they've been moved to act."

"He is Lord over the life celebration and Lord over severe acute malnutrition. He is good in the life celebration, and He is good in the severe acute malnutrition. He is. Thank you Jesus."

Really great post. I struggled with this at first, too (and still do at points- like when I totally "waste" a day), but I feel like I am SO much more confident in my decision to be at home for this season (and also so much less judgmental of those who make a different choice).

Y'all know I am a bit obsessed with lists, so I *loved* this.

"Day by day, decision by decision, response by response, we are shaping the view on life that our children will take with them when they grow up and leave our homes as independent individuals."

Loved the post about being at capacity. I totally feel that way right now. As we pray about child #4, I just keep telling the Lord that I'm going to have to trust Him that I won't go insane. Literally. Ha!
