Links for a lazy weekend....

Wanted to share a few things that have me chewing on lessons of joy and intentionality and living a good story....

From Carlos Whittaker's blog - what it means to live like you were dying The Story of Zac Smith. I'm pretty sure that if I knew I was dying I wouldn't be in such a hurry to get my kids to bed at night and plant myself in front of the DVR....

Nella's Birth Story I hesitated to share this one when I first saw it a few months ago because all of my pregnant friends who have enough to worry about already. But I think it's a beautifully painful and wonderful story. Get ready to cry. Really. The ugly cry.

Gretchen I read Nella's story a week ago or so when Donald Miller posted it on his blog. Its one of those stories that brings you to tears no matter who you are.
