Finds for Fridays: September 16 (and lessons from a peahen)

I'm over at the Internet Cafe today, sharing a bit about what I learned at the zoo about abiding in Him. The ZOO, you ask? Yup. It's a lesson a peahen and his chicks brought home to me. Stop by and read The Company We Keep, and you'll see what I mean.

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!

For Emma by Chris Bartnick at Life, Love and Happiness Weblog (about comparisons)

The Day Before by Seema Bagai at Jewels of Encouragement (about regrets and making EVERY day count)

35 by Jan Ackerson at One Hundred Words (about punctuation and attitude)

If You Can't Describe Your Story, There Probably Isn't A Story by Scott Eagan at Babbles from Scott Eagan (about the heart of a story and knowing its essence)

Write...Be...Who YOU Are by Casey Herringshaw at The Writers Alley (about perseverance and discouragement)

So, here they are! Some poignant, fun, inspirational stuff (some all at once!! LOL). Hope you enjoy the reads.
