Stuff I've Been Reading

It's Sunday, which means it's time for me to round up some of my favorite reads of the week and present them to you in list fashion. I hope you find something here that is of benefit to you.
  • Many of you know RawFaith/Linda from comments here and at many other blogs. She is one of the most encouraging people that I've met out here. She recently had surgery to remove cancer, but because she is self-employed, the bills are pretty steep. If you would like to help her defray the costs of her surgery, you can donate here
  • We're often told that we need to enjoy every minute of parenting (or any number of activities). But we all know that sometime there are things that aren't enjoyable. Glennon Melton writes a brilliant piece about refusing to carpe diem. (I know this is older than this week. Still awesome.)
  • This Wednesday, a lot of folks blacked out to protest SOPA/PIPA. If you care about supporting musical artists, check out this infographic that shows how best to get money in the pockets of your favorite artists.
  • Elizabeth Esther had a gut-wrenching experience when her daughter fell from a second-story window. A poignant reminder that our lives are fragile.
  • Matt Appling wrote an insightful piece about how irony can quickly morph into cynicism over at Provoketive. As a fellow Gen-X'er, this one hit close to home.
  • Sarah Moon posted about what talk of "effeminate Christianity" means to women in the Church.
  • Pretty much everything over at Catalog Living is funny, but this one made me totally laugh out loud.
