monday miscellany

stuff…from all around the web:

~ Is breakfast overrated? True confession: I often skip breakfast. And I prefer to eat breakfast foods at night.

~ Sleep Hack: Keep Your Feet Outside Your Covers. I often keep one foot outside the covers. It’s my climate control method.

~ I received an email from hotels.com encouraging me to sign a petition in support of the Vacation Equality Project. Truly, one of the dumbest things I’ve heard in a while.

~ Four Habits of a Happy Heart.

~ Mourning the destructiveness of the divorce culture:

It is easy to be loyal when loyalty costs you nothing. But when the hard times come, as come they must; when conversation is strained, and even the bed brings no real pleasure; when the future seems but an interminable stretch of cloud and rain; then only the vow stands between marriage and divorce, and then it is that married couples most need the moral suasion and support of a genuine culture about them.

To say, “We will not hold you to your vow” is to say, in effect, “You cannot really make a vow to begin with.”

But it is essential to our humanity to promise ourselves; we can only find happiness by giving away our pursuit of it; we know joy when we open ourselves up to its free arrival; it is better to be chosen than to choose. Many men and women in difficult marriages would learn these things eventually, if we did our duty by them and held them to their vows when they were weak.

I really do think that the people who encourage divorce by not holding people to their vows will answer for it one day.

~ Liberal Thought Police:

How ironic that the persecutors this time around are the so-called intellectuals. They claim to be liberal while behaving as anything but. The touchstone of liberalism is tolerance of differing ideas. Yet this mob exists to enforce conformity of thought and to delegitimize any dissent from its sanctioned worldview. Intolerance is its calling card.

~ Why Toothpaste & Pine Nuts Can Make Some Foods Taste Disgusting

~ Creamy Faux Ranch Dressings

~ The Golf Address.  When you’ve lost Maureen Dowd….

~ Why do so many excellent (biblical, Christ-centered) books have uninteresting titles and graphics? Good question! One of the books that really changed my life has a most boring and intimidating title: The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination.

Happy Monday y’all!
