I love sharing links I love. I love sharing your links you love. My weekly series, Crazy Links I Love will be a place we can share our favorite links, blog posts, projects, and fundraisers … your favorite things every weekend. I want to be a cheerleader for you, a shout-out for you, and a place you can share your gifts, talents, and passions with other bloggers. You can also email me your link and write a blurb I can share with readers.
If you have a favorite post or link, it’s really simple to share: leave me a note in the comments. Let’s get this party started …
Here are a few of my favorite links this week:
Daily Quick Cleaning Checklist via Real Simple:
No vacuum-the-fridge-coils deep-cleaning pointers, just a basic plan to get your home neat―in under 30 minutes a day.
One of the things I hate about today’s world is that we take everything for granted. We communicate through light and electricity, fly in metal vehicles, and listen to music recorded decades ago through airwaves—yet everyone is like “whatever.” Which is why I love this video of two old women flying for the first time.
God is dead, and we killed him. This is the terrifying reality of what we so cruelly call “Good Friday.” This is the sudden, dark twist in the story that had started so beautifully. The God who had created walked among us. Clothed, as we are, in flesh and blood and dust. Touching and restoring and healing his broken children. Repairing the damage that sin and time and darkness had wrought on the planet he so loved. There had been prophets before, holy men and poets singing and shouting the words of the Most High. But Jesus was different. He was not a man sent from God. He was the man who was God. Spirit and soul and flesh and blood all tangled together and drenched in both humanity and divinity. The Creator among the creation. God with us.
Easter’s Finest When Jesus hijacks your holiday by Jen Hatmaker
It’s Easter. Between ages zero and thirty-two, I celebrated Easter the fun way: with bunnies, baskets, and expensive clothes. What better way to say “Jesus reigns” than dressing my preschooler in a $45 dress to show her off in the church lobby? (You’re welcome, Jesus. Be blessed.) Now let’s be clear: If you had asked me what my Easter priorities were as I stood all fancy in the lobby, I’d become grave and mention the resurrection. For crying out loud, I’m a Christian.
Mind Your Manners –Foundations For Missions by Bethany Richardson
Are you leading a group on a mission experience this year? First of all, go you! A position that requires a lot of coordinating, prayer, paperwork and patience is not something most people will take on, but you are! I know that things can quickly pile up when it comes to preparing a youth/adult/mixed group on a trip. Trying to help them remember and understand all the rules, worrying about how they will act on the trip and ensuring they follow the dress code can be enough to make anyone become a frazzled mess. (not to mention there’s the spiritual responsibility as well!)

This was the sermon I heard last Sunday that greatly impacted my heart for the post I wrote, 5 Reasons To Remember Why You Said Yes To God. You don’t want to miss watching it and let me know what you learn from this beautiful story of Jesus and Peter.
