Melissa Wiley: “Blog first. Blog freehand. Write it down today, while the thought is fresh.” I grok this post from Here in the Bonny Glen.
Cara at Little Did She Know:
“I would like to meet and marry someone lovely, but truly, I am seeking a companion with which to do life, someone to whom I can recount everything I ate during my day, my excitement over an email, and my concerns about road construction. I am looking for someone who will contact me first when you can turn on your phone after the airplane lands.”
So beautiful and vulnerable. I’m praying for Cara and for all those best friends who haven’t found each other yet.

Rod Dreher writes about what he’s been learning lately from Dante’s Divine Comedy.
“All the damned dwell in eternal punishment because they let their passions overrule their reason and were unrepentant. For Dante, all sin results from disordered desire: either loving the wrong things or loving the right things in the wrong way.”
Mr. Dreher is working on a book titled How Dante Can Save Your Life.

Donâ€™t worry, I do want him to learn to read, but itâ€™s a secondary priority to the desire that he passionately and humbly pursue his Creator, that he lead courageously with mercy, defending what is true and just.”
