Finds for Fridays: January 20

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!

The Whole Town Went to Meet Jesus by Arlen Yoder at Arlen's Living Water Springs (about the "buzz" about Jesus)

Door of No Words by Pat Guy at Pat's Porch (about Jesus and a child)

I Have a Dream Today by Rebecca Boschee at WordServe Water Cooler  (about a familiar speech and writing tips you can learn from it)

The Melt Down by Nancy K. Sullivan at Jewels of Encouragement (about our reaction to God's protection of us)

Thoughtful About...Waiting on Promises by Roseanna White at Writing Roseanna (about God's faithfulness) 

Failing Forward: A Guest Blog by Alton Gansky at Chip MacGregor's blog (about learning from failure)

Hope you enjoy these posts - I know I did.
