Rellies and Bullies from the blog All About Olive.
When a 107 year old blogger orders your attendance, there is of course no saying no.
When this same blogger, reputedly the oldest in the world, says there’s a meeting not be missed and it’s blog related, well you just jump to it, don’t you?
Subjective Truths from Apple Leaf Blog.
I think the Biblical advice to take people’s words lightly is wise. Don’t worry when people criticise you or your work, because they are really only voicing their OWN opinion! It took awhile for me to learn this and sometimes I still forget. On the other hand, when others heap praise on us and tell us how great we are, we ought to take this lightly too, for the same reason. If we let this sort of thing get too deeply into our heads, it’ll hit all the harder when the other sort of feedback comes, as it always will. I think the very best thing we can do is carry on faithfully doing what we are sure is our calling without letting people’s words affect us much at all. Then we are probably in the best position for God to use our input.
When Holly Met Crystal from the blog Closing In On Heaven.
Holly sighed. Blood was seeping through her bandage. She was sick of her stitches. Remembering, her Mothers image flashed before her eyes and she shuddered. She heard the noise again; she decided to get off her bed. Holly grabbed her watch and started toward the noise, walking down the hall she put her watch on over her bandage. She stopped at the top of the stairs. Listening again, a door slammed shut.
Why Australian trials are important to the OLPC vision from Pia Waugh’s blog.
Need in Australia – there are many children in Australia who are in serious need. Whether it be in remote Indigenous Australia, or living in poverty in metropolitan areas. Supporting projects for these children is a key goal of OLPC Friends for Australia, New Zealand and throughout the Pacific. The first Australian trial includes some children from extremely disadvantaged communities (including a remote Indigenous family) as well as typical kids to ensure that the technology meets both the specific needs of disadvantaged children as well as the typical education requirements of an Australian school.
