7 Quick Takes Friday ~ Vol 45

— 1 —   This Week’s Post:   Wisdom and Hope in a Secular World ~ A Guest post by Britt   This post has received lots of hits so far this week.  Great job, Britt!

— 2 —   Pray and Fast for Syria:  Let us storm heaven and beg for God’s mercy!


  3 — No Alone Series:  This week the girls talked about Peace.  I loved everything the girls wrote about so be sure to check them out.  A couple of posts jumped out at me.  Veronica from In The Palms of His Hands wrote something I can relate to:

“….When I’m really stressed, I clean.  It’s productive, takes my mind off my problem, and makes me feel like I’m in control of something. ..” 

Morgan from Follow and Believe wrote something along the same lines which definitely is true for me:

 “…I make an effort on a daily basis to shake off laziness in order to keep my peace. I always feel unsettled going to be at night when I know that I was just a slug of a person that day…”

— 4 — Spotlight On:  This week the spotlight is on Ruthie and Michael Dean.  On Wednesday, their book, Real Men Don’t Text, was released.  I started reading and I can’t wait to do my book review.  They have been putting snippets from the book on their website and so far I am in total agreement with their wisdom and advice.  I sent them an email asking them to do a guest post where they talk about the idea of the veil being true (or not) in their experience.  I didn’t hear back from them…but I am sure they are busy!  From what I can tell, it seems like she experienced rejection, rejection, rejection, rejection and then voila’!  Things with Michael were completely different.  So, I wonder what she would say about the veil theory??  If you would like to hear from Ruthie (and Michael!), head on over to their blog and give them some blog love in their comments section. Maybe let them know you would like to see a guest post from them!  Here and here are examples of snippets from their book!

Real Men Don't Text

— 5 —  Jen’s New 7QTs Took Kit:  So, Jen (from Jumping in Puddles) clued me in on Jen’s (from Conversion Diary) snazzy took kit for snazzy 7QTs formatting.  I guess I am not as snazzy or savvy as I thought. I tried to do this but failed.  Now you know that this blog is a complete miracle and that every post is a result of the mercy of God.

— 6 —   Book of Jeremiah:  Be not afraid, “I am with you”, says the Lord.

“….The word of the LORD came to Jeremiah: “You, prepare yourself; stand up and tell them all that I command you. Do not be terrified on account of them, or I will terrify you before them; For I am the one who today makes you a fortified city, a pillar of iron, a wall of bronze, against the whole land: against Judah’s kings and princes, its priests and the people of the land. They will fight against you, but not prevail over you, for I am with you to deliver you—oracle of the LORD….”  Jeremiah 1:17-19

 — 7 — Book of Sirach:  This truth about our Lord gives me Peace:

“…He plumbs the depths and penetrates the heart; their innermost being he understands. The Most High possesses all knowledge, and sees from of old the things that are to come: He makes known the past and the future, and reveals the deepest secrets. No understanding does he lack; no single thing escapes him….”    Sirach  42:15-25

God love and bless you!

  1. I actually couldn’t get the links to work either!! 😦 I emailed Jen about it… but she said it worked for her. So! I have no idea. I am not very savvy, either, it seems.

    Also, am really looking forward to reading Real Men Don’t Text!

  2. Thanks so much, Cindy! Wow! Lots of hits? Really? 😀 THANK YOU, ladies, for reading. Oh, and I read those excerpts from the book…I would LOVE to have a discussion with them about “not changing a man” as it relates to dating a guy who is open to conversion because of the woman’s witness (I’ve seen it happen, and it always worked out that she didn’t set out to do that)…

    • Oh, yes, lots of hits Britt! 🙂 The book (Real Men Don’t Text) so far is excellent! I love your suggestion for their guest post but I have not heard back from them…..I am sure they are swamped right now! All I can do is extend the invite and let the Holy Spirit do the rest. 🙂 God bless, Cindy
