Each week I like to make at least four suggestions on a resource that has been an encouragement to me. I hope it might encourage you, as well. My suggestions aren’t necessarily churched, or spiritually related, but they are good reads, listens, learnings, gadgets, and restaurants. Let me know what you think HERE
Here you go! This Week’s 4forFRIDAY – May 26, 2017
A Fresh Indie EP from Jess Sterner
A dear friend, Kevin Sterner suggested that I listen to this EP. I’m so glad that I did. I was up late Tuesday evening writing and listening to these lyrics and melodies. You’ll be so glad that you made the small investment and purchased Jessie Sterner Legg.
A Great 5-Minute Read:
Don’t Want to Waste Your Life? Quit Doing These 6 Things Today
Each of us, on average, has around 27,000 days to live. Subtract a third or so of that for sleeping and another chunk for those early years you don’t remember and can’t control, and you’re left with a pretty terrifyingly low number. As great philosophers have reminded us, remembering the shortness of life is what spurs us all to live authentically. When you’re cognizant of the fact that time is short, you value it appropriately.
A Classic Throwback Album I’m Listening to…AGAIN!
Linda Ronstadt’s Greatest Hits.
This remastered album contains hits that I had forgotten existed, and yet I knew every lyric from the past. Download this album, roll your windows down and sing “your no good, your no good, your no good”!
A Fun Place to Get Surprisingly Great Food: The Iron Horse Tavern in Norcross
I love this place! It’s my go-to for a great burger, fresh salad, tasty shepherds pie, or some old-fashioned fish and chips! We occasionally play darts after dinner. Since we have no idea how to play darts, we made up our own scoring system. Beware! If Jenny is playing, she slings her darts pretty crazy all up in there!
And a quote I’m pondering from the great Walt Disney: “All the adversity I’ve had in my life, all my troubles and obstacles, have strengthened me…. You may not realize it when it happens, but a kick in the teeth may be the best thing in the world for you.”
