Finds for Fridays: December 30

Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following close to 100 blogs and at least scan them as much as I can. Each week, I'll note and "set aside" some posts that especially speak to me for whatever reason. And each Friday that I am able, I'll share them with you. I hope you'll stop by and read the posts, and maybe even follow the blogs if you aren't already. A win-win, right?

And here they are!

A Jar of Cotton Balls by Elaine Marie Cooper at Reflections in Hindsight (about a Christmas tradition that brought tears to my eyes)

Maybe by Donna Emery at Jewels of Encouragement (about homelessness and a Christmas miracle)

The Quiet Pause of Christmas at Peace for the Journey by Elaine Olsen (about silence and peace)

I AM... not that guy By Karlene Jacobsen at Jewels of Encouragement (about fathers and trust and God)

Who Did You Learn That From? Know Your Sources by Scott Eagan at Babbles by Scott Eagan (about who you should learn from. A "duh" I definitely needed!)

Enjoy these wonderful posts. You WILL be blessed. Of THAT I am certain :D
