Me Myself and I – Have some marvelous fun with the English language! Also… looking for something on irony? Puzzled when it comes to oxymorons? How about using “that” as an adverb? And what’s up with antidisestablishmentarianism?
Ugly Dog Olympics – I dare you (no, I double-dare you) not to fall over laughing when you read this one.
Semicolon – If you enjoy reviewing books, but you’ve never participated in the Saturday Review of Books on Semicolon blog, then you’re missing out. Big time.
Admire Whom? – Petra offers an excellent reminder on the importance of focusing solely on Christ. She says, “We want praise for just about everything we do because it feels so good when we get it. I know! I also claim to know that God is the only one who deserves all honor and praise. The two don’t mix.”
Books, Books, Books – Kevin DeYoung shares a list of the 10 most influential books for Reformed Evangelicals (as given to him by the readers of his blog). It looks quite helpful, but I must admit that I was surprised J.C. Ryle’s Holiness didn’t make the list. How could it not?
And More Books – Looking to start your own J.C. Ryle collection? Here’s a great way to begin! (HT Persis)
2009 Academy Award Music Nominees – As someone who loves movies and soundtracks, I found this excellent article especially interesting. You can imagine my joy when I discovered that John Powell’s score for How To Train Your Dragon and Hans Zimmer’s score for Inception are both among the nominees for “Best Original Score”. Awesome! And one of them had better win!
Remember This – This probably one of my favorite posts by my Mom. She says, “There will be times in your lives that you’ll know hard providences. God, in His ever kind and loving way, will fashion some of your days to be full of pain and suffering and heartache. Other times, He’ll use common daily cares and struggles to bring you to your knees as He makes you more and more into the image of His Son.”
The Osteen Moment – Yours is coming soon enough.
“O ye who dislike cretain portions of Holy Writ, rest assured that your taste is corrupt, and that God will not stay for your little opinion. Your dislike is the very reason God wrote it, because you ought not to be suited; you have no right to be pleased. God wrote what you do not like; He wrote the truth.” ~ C.H. Spurgeon
