Saturday Good Reads

Steve Jobs died, and I was one of the three bloggers who didn’t write about it. But I did read about it, and I watched the “lost” 1984 video of Jobs introducing the Macintosh.

A lot of friends went to the writer’s retreat at Laity Lodge in Texas, and The High Calling is assembling a list of all the blog posts about it. Below, you can read Kelly Sauer’s “Airplane Poems” and look at Patricia Spreng’s photos.

I find myself agreeing with Matt Appling, a young pastor (young enough to be my son), about the purpose of the church. And I came across “Friday photo” by Nancy Rosback that still has me mesmerized.

A lot of good stuff got posted this week.

I think no one who has seen it can forget the Jobs video. Having had a Mac now for more than a year, I cannot go back to a PC.

Thank you for including "Autumn Equinox".

My mother always quoted someone by saying... "your kindness is exceeded only by your generosity and good looks!" (I googled it, to no avail.) I thought it fitting for you today. I've always enjoyed these links... thank you for including my pics. I somehow knew the retreat was not the same without you. But your good friends there captured my heart and I knew if they are your friends,you must be alright too. ;)

I am happy to be a part of your Saturday post.
thank you very much.

I clicked and read the post by Matt Appling, and after leaving a comment, figured i might as well make it into a post. It helped me to address the issue i keep running into, which is my desire for things to be all good and unbroken, and the need to be looking to Jesus.
