this & that

What a week. So many thoughts. So many reasons to give thanks.

Here are some links for laughter and thinking and love.

Senior Citizen Flash Mob This is a group of elderly folks who think they can have fun, too. I gotta give 'em props for the effort. It reminds me of the documentary Young at Heart - but less cool. You should definitely watch the documentary if you haven't seen it!

As sad as it sounds, how we googled in 2011 is an interesting litmus test of our priorities and it turns out we are all mixed up (big surprise).

Christopher Hitchens died. This outspoken atheist passed away from cancer in Houston and it just might be the perfect time to reflect on some of the beliefs (yes, atheists have beliefs too) he held onto so tightly.

The Gospel Coalition calls the Coming Catholic Ad Blitz "among the largest religious media blitzes in U.S. history." This campaign is one calling Catholics to come "back home" - to find their local parish and learn (or re-learn) what it means to be Catholic. This fascinates me. I wonder what your thoughts are?

Its been said, “If you don’t expose your secret, your secret will expose you.” This article by Rebekah Lyons called, "What's Your Secret?" is refreshing as it looks at the secrets we bury down deep and the relief when they are uncovered.

Well, it's a short list and I'm processing so much these days - taking in the beauty of everyday, reading about grace and gratitude and moments. I'm trying to step in to every moment thankful, as I read through One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp.

It's painting the world in beautiful hues.
