An Astounding Assemblage of Agreeable Articles

1. Just a reminder that Monday is the day to link up your Salvation Story! I can’t wait to rejoice with each of you, as you share your unique story of how God called you to Himself. I’m looking forward to being awed and amazed by the ways God chooses to save us!

2. November is coming!! And I’ve got an exciting challenge planned that I think will stretch and encourage each one who participates. Last year I challenged you to make a gratitude list, and I shared 10 things I was thankful for every day in November. This year… well, I don’t want to spill all the juicy details, but it won’t involve gratitude lists or writing something every single day. And it just might involve a fun giveaway for you! Stay tuned for details!!!

3. Have you liked DogFur and Dandelions on Facebook yet? If not, you’re missing out! I regularly share other good posts from around the web, giveaways I hear about, Kindle freebies, and encouraging Scriptures to help you through your day!

 

And now, for some great posts.

–> Dancing by Choosing Joy Daily
An elderly woman who used to be a business woman… and now she can’t stop dancing. How does that relate to your life? Well, you’ll just have to read and find out!

Also, while you’re there on Catherine’s site, take a moment to read her last few posts. Not only are they beautiful tributes to her Papaw, who will soon be home in Heaven, but they’re so encouraging and motivating for us, as well. And pray for their family during this time of grief, would you?

 

–> Painful Times by DDKay’s Blog
I just love the encouragement we can find online these days, don’t you? In this post, Mary reminds us that, even during the painful times, God is still at work. He is still walking with us; He never leaves us alone. And He is still working His perfect plan for each of our lives; He never gives up on us. Such a great reminder to keep trusting, even when we don’t understand why.

 

–> Simplicity of Encouragement by Lamp on a Stand
Take a moment to consider what encouragement really is. Tyanne ties the modern English word back to its Greek counterparts, and suggests that our version of encouraging one another is often too weak and watered down — that we try to merely provoke “good feelings” rather than motivate to holiness. She has some good thoughts that are worth taking time to read and pray over!
