Today is the day that I begin something new, and I’m excited to share it here today and then again every Thursday. (Yes, I know today is not Thursday.) It’s Friday and my little funny for the day is going to link again to Chatting at the Sky. Emily, the giggly Nester, and I sat on a bed talking bloggy-land at the Blissdom Conference. I was trying to explain how my blog tends to feel heavy and that I try to use Fridays to lighten it up.
Emily bursts out with, “What do you call it – Funny Fridays?,” poking a little fun at the opportunity to use day-of-the-week alliteration. And if you can imagine the silliest two sisters you’ve ever seen, they rip-roared, and so did I because then my response had to be, ” No. It’s Friday Funnies!” I thought they were going to quit breathing.
I understand that this may not be a funny read. You had to be there. And this is why I have to retire the funnies. I am very, very rarely funny on purpose. I have to use all my muscles to be intentionally funny. But let me to you, though, people laugh at me all the time. Funny oozes out when I’m not looking – usually when I’m talking down my gown at the nurse’s station and stuff like that.
So without any further delay, I present to you … THESAURUS THURSDAY!!!! Just kidding.
I’ve decided to give weekly linklove, Plugs and Laudations, to some of my favorite people, things, products, blogs, and videos – to really anything I want. I might even theme it from time to time. I could ask about your favorite inspirational people and materials, and you might link to My Utmost for His Highest and talk about Oswald Chambers and his awesome blog devotionals.
Most of the time, I’ll just be encouraging you to look around and recognize all the jobs well done, be it toward a crayon manufacturer or be it your best friend who brought you a cup of coffee. Take a picture of your baby’s lips and laud the Creator for His design. Are you having a hard time not watching a youTube video? If it’s one of your favorites, link up. Give it a Plug and Laudation. Let’s eulogize the ones who encourage us to live better, the ones who make us laugh, the ones who make us want to be more creative, or the ones who help us keep a better house.
I’m excited to share my first Plugs. I’m excited to show you pictures. I’m excited to practice the gift of encouragement. How about you? I’ll have it ready for you to link up by Wednesday night.
And for today, if you have a friday funny, go ahead and let us know in the comments. Please someone use that cute little button one more time!
