on comparison

we have been stumbling through our first weeks of homeschool and adjusting to  adam's very random schedule over here, but i'm dropping in quickly.  sweet husband sent me on a solo run this morning and i listened to this.  whew!  so good...the sinful dangers of comparison...taking my eyes off Jesus.  you can go here if you just want the audio.  these wise ladies have been doing a series on the internet and how it can be used for good or ill...comparison and bragging are so easy to fall into.  Jesus said to Peter (and whispers to our hearts also when we are tempted to compare and fall into bitterness and discontentment) "what is that to you? you follow me."

The Snare of Compare from The Gospel Coalition on Vimeo.

there are many other talks from the women's Gospel coalition conference that look wonderful as well.

marit, the author

girlie wrote her first book, thanks to b-ma stapling some paper in between one of her paintings. well, i guess she dictated and i just wrote down word-for-word what she wanted to go with each of her drawings. i love that it ended up being mostly about flowers (that's my girl!) and the ending cracks me up. every good book has a princess, right? i have a feeling this is an activity we will be doing often:)
