It's Blogtipping Day!

Yep, it’s Blogtipping day! The first calendar day of each month is a new Blogtipping Day. I first started this on my Craft Blog, but this month, I'm planning to participate with all 4 of my blogs!

Here’s my list for June. These blogs are all Christian related blogs. Enjoy!

Blogtippee #1:
The "What If" Women...

This is a great Christian blog that features the ponderings of five women of the Lord. They begin each day with a simple question: "What If..." Their daily questions really make you stop and think...

Blogtippee #2 Look to the Lord

Wow! This is a brand new blog that already has 335 postings since May! It is filled with stories, poems jokes and scripture. It's definitely going to take me some time to get through all of the posts, but it will be fun!

Blogtippee #3 The Road Not Chosen

What an inspiration blog! It is written by a mom with a teenage son with Down Syndrome. She says that we don't always get to choose the road we're on, but the journey is always interesting! It's a great Christian blog and I enjoyed reading her stories.

That’s it for this month! Take a moment to check out each of these fantastic craft blogs! Come back next month to see who I Blogtipped!

Kids Stories...

DEATH: While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased. The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his Father always said: "Glory be unto the Faaaather, and unto the Sonnn ... And into the hole he gooooes."

SCHOOL: A little girl had just finished her first week of school. "I'm just wasting my time," she said to her mother. "I can't read, I can't write and they won't let me talk!"

BIBLE: A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages.

"Mama, look what I found", the boy called out. "What have you got there, dear?"

With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, "I think it's Adam's underwear!"

Memorial Day

On this day set aside to honor those who have served the United States, oh God, I thank you for those patriotic citizens and a country that chooses to remember them. Also I thank you for those who have served the church by preserving your gospel. I remember the blessings you gave to them and through them. Amen.
