Finds for Fridays - September 24

Finds for Fridays is my way of sharing some of the wonderful blogs posts I read each week. I am currently following about 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 now...the posts for this week

The Contests at a Writing Conference by Chip MacGregor at Chip's blog (about the right - and wrong - reasons to enter a writing contest)

The Handicap By Alisa Hope Wagner at Faith Imagined (about righteousness by faith - and the lack thereof)

Deep Waters... By Elaine Olson at Peace For The Journey (about the depth of God - and our ability to dig into it)

Perchance To Dream... By Kenn Allan at Kenn Allan, Writer and Poet (About our dreams and aspirations)

Welcome... by Lori MacMath at All You Have To Give (about feeling like an outsider)

My Cats Are Out To Get Me by Timmy Boyle at Inside Timmy's Mind (about the great cat conspiracy)

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you check out these posts, and maybe even become a follower of the blogs. Some great reading out there.

Have a great weekend.
