Saturday Good Reads

Blogger went awry on Thursday, the posts for that disappearing and then reappearing on Friday (minus the comments). Google said they were doing maintenance and discovered corrupted files, and down the system went to fix it. It wasn’t the end of the world, but a lot of people run businesses from their blogs.

In spite of spite, there were still a lot of good posts this week.

Always a nice selection, Glynn. I'm visiting some of these folks today. So sorry about the Blogger deal. I lost many, many comments.

Michelle DeRusha@Graceful said...

Love that you do this every week, Glynn -- I'm going to visit at least three this morning.

And BTW, I made a donation to The High Calling this week!

thank you for allowing Christ to live through you

Well, hello there. It's nice to meet you. I'm laughingly joining the blogging party a bit late. As I've been tip toeing around, perusing and feeling quite shy about the prospect of such things as tweeting poetry parties, your mug keeps popping up everywhere. So I finally feel comfortable enough to comment and say thank you for this post and pointing me in so many wonderful directions. A whole new world. :) Who'da thunk it?

dustus said...

nance marie said...

thanks, Glynn.

the kindness and Love that you project goes far and wide and touches many hearts.

which is more powerful than... well, much more powerful than blogger being down for a day.

wasn't that something? one day without blogger, someone could write a book on some of the different ways that it effected people's lives.

S. Etole said...

It's always a privilege to be here and a joy to find the links you mention.

Laura said...

THank you for linking "Thin Line", Glynn. Blogger didn't like it and deleted it! I had to re-post it. That was frustrating, wasn't it? Heading out to explore some of these good reads!

Jennifer @ said...

I read several of these this week. I thoroughly enjoyed Jeanne Damoff's piece.

Great roundup, Glynn. Thanks for your commitment to this.

Anne Lang Bundy said...

Thank you, Glynn. It never fails to humble and honor me to be included on this list.

If Sunday is quieter, I plan to make it back to a few more of these that I didn't catch yet.

You honor writers with your words.
