Good morning sisters, and happy Friday! Did we actually make it? Do you feel it like I do? The long rough week we just had on social media? I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling a little burnt out from it all. It’s weeks like these, when our screens become windows into tragedy and despair, that we realize we are sojourners, and this world is not our own. Let’s continue to pray for and support the victims of Hurricane Harvey. But for now, here’s a little respite, some light-hearted articles, along with my first Biblical Doctrine post, the introduction to my new series. Have a great holiday weekend everyone.
I told you I was keeping it light! Plus, it’s September 1st- the beginning of pumpkin spice season! Here is a an article from Southern Living, Guess Which of Your Favorite Candy Brands Have Gone Pumpkin Spice! This is totally an ad, I get it. I don’t even get paid for this! I’m just excited that fall is right around the corner. There’s a little cupcake video and recipe in the link too. “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” – Anne of Green Gables.
What are Teraphim?
Not to be confused with cherubim or seraphim. Though the sound similar, these are are completely different. Got Questions has the answer here.
Free Fall Woodland Printables
Here is an old post I came across on Pinterest from Unskinny Boppy. These free woodland critter printables are the sweetest. These are going up in my dining room/ classroom soon!
Biblical Doctrine Series
If you’ve been wanting to study theology, but haven’t known where to start, then you’ve come to the right place. Starting Thursday, September 7th, I’ll be blogging through MacArthur and Mayhue’s Biblical Doctrine. With each blog post, I will attach a weekly study guide to go along with the reading. You can read more about it here.
For the Car Ride
In keeping with the light-hearted spirit of this “Coffee Break,” I want to share with you this free audiobook resource I use with my family. It is called LibriVox. It provides audio narrations for books that are in the public domain. All of these books are read by volunteers. It’s pretty neat! And some of these narrators are exceptionally talented. Right now we are listening to the Thornton Burgess book series. This is great for car rides or just read aloud family time.
