Finding the sweet-cheese filling in the cannoli that is the internet...

"More Love to Thee, O Christ" -- Says Kevin DeYoung, "We are all natural evangelists for the people and things we love most." Therefore, the root of poor (or nonexistent) evangelism is a lack of love for Jesus. The best thing we can do to grow as evangelists? Love Jesus more--what a joyful mission!

"When Wives Say No" -- How to teach and hold and obey authority while recognizing the sinfulness of those in authority? Wives (and anyone under authority) need to learn when and how to say "no". Here is balanced help from Doug Wilson.

Tebow, Texas & Easter -- Celebration Church in Georgetown, TX, will be having Tim Tebow deliver the Easter message on Sunday. What really stood out to me was this from the pastor about Easter: "Obviously it’s our Super Bowl..." Like, "You know that really huge thing you guys have some Sunday in February? We have something big, too! Really!"

"Death, thou shalt die" -- Illness and death seem closer to me than in the past. This longer quote from David Murray is a refreshing meditation on the power of Christ over death...not just his own, but mine and yours.

"Can We Be Postitive About Psychiatric Medications?" -- If it seems like we keep linking everything Ed Welch writes...well, that's probably correct. Again, he gives wise advice about the place of psychiatric medications.
