7 Quick Takes Friday … October 10th

I don’t have a lot of thoughts this week for my quick takes since I blogged so much already for one week!  (Don’t get too used to it … although I even have a great post scheduled for tomorrow to celebrate Baby Shep’s First Birthday!)

If you missed it, check it out!

So I’m going to post some of my favorite things from around the interwebs for your enjoyment!

Did you see the story about the 29 year old woman who’s choosing euthanasia rather than treatment?  Very mixed comments regarding this, but I just finished Matt Walsh’s take and really liked what he had to say.  The suicide equates bravery argument has been rolling around for a while, ever since the passing of Robin Williams.  As a society, I’m not sure we know what to do when this happens.  It’s a difficult time for the family with a situation we really cannot begin to understand.  Compassion and Forgiveness seem to be two serious themes of the issue – but how do we give them?

On a completely opposite note – if you’ve been following my godson’s blog then super cuteness has been filling your feed!  He turned one on Tuesday (party tomorrow – cutest gift summary to follow).

Although from his mom’s FB picture this morning, seems like he’s already starting to get around with the ladies!

hmmmm … maybe a little talk is in order!

Did you see Kendra’s post about Mary’s use of the iPhone to snap a pic of Baby J?!

Once you ‘spy’ it, you can’t not see it!


About two weeks ago, this happened at work:

Well not to be THAT dramatic – but at my place of employment, people keep eating my meals!!!  It’s CRAZYNESS!

I saw this article on ChurchPOP and to say I was fascinated would be an understatement … the key is defining personhood according to the 14th Amendment of the Constitution!


“An impossible case”

Did you read about the Jennifer Lawrence leak? Probably at least heard something…  Anyway, the Restless Pilgrim had a great response yesterday.  My favorite line:

If women raise the standard, men will typically rise to the challenge. This isn’t about power struggles within relationships, outrageous demands or oneupmanship. Women have the capacity to inspire men to depart from the ranks of mediocrity and drive a man to become the very best version of himself. Now, this doesn’t mean that they’ll never fall short. They are as capable of failure as women. However, a woman’s inspiration can raise a man to greatness.
Check out the whole thing over at his place.
