Weekend Links–October 30

October 30, 2010

Don’t you love the look on his face? This was last year’s pumpkin patching. I’ll post about this year’s in another entry.

We are looking forward to a night of fun with friends tomorrow, but in the meantime, enjoy these weekend links!

The 1928 time traveler in a Charlie Chaplin film is sure to keep you pondering. Is she actually talking on a cell phone in 1928? I watched the whole thing, and I have no idea what that person (not even sure if it is a woman) is doing. Very odd! Watch it if you haven’t yet.

Looking for a Halloween dinner– make  Not Martha’s tentacle pot pie.

Did you know that Barnes and Noble has an online story time? This month–Where the Wild Things Are read by author Maurice Sendak Just the right amount of curmudgeon.

If you are wanting a head start on the Thanksgiving holidays–Tip Junkie has more than 200 ideas to thoroughly overwhelm you 🙂

A friend sent me this post from Tracie Miles on a day I really needed to hear it–maybe you do too–here’s a taste:

“Driving home, I realized that I was holding myself up to unrealistic standards – my own standards for perfection and performance, not God’s.

You see, my heart longed to be like that seemingly perfect Proverbs 31 mom. The kind of mom who is always patient, helpful, calm, understanding and reasonable in every circumstance. The kind of mom who never loses her temper. The kind of mom whose children arise every morning and call her blessed, with or without muffins.

It’s easy to get hung up on the woman described in Proverbs 31. We begin to believe that God holds us to an unrealistic standard of goodness and perfection. But God sees perfection differently than we do.”

How does he see perfection?–read more here.

Have a great weekend!
