A La Carte (3/21)

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made - “The perfection of this little creature shocked each one of us in the operating theatre. In a mere 10 weeks, God weaved together a tiny person with fingers, toes, eyes, ears, mouth and nose. This little one looks peacefully asleep in the nourishing tissue of its mother’s womb. The sacred sorrow, however, is that the baby is dead. A severe mercy perhaps.”

Life Wins - Here’s an encouraging dispatch from a Mercy Ship that you’ll want to read.

How an Affair Begins - This is an important little article. “A friend of mine told me that now she understands how adultery begins. She went to a woman’s house to drop off a package as a favor to someone, but the woman was not home. The husband was, and they exchanged pleasantries for a few moments. “

DVD Deal - Westminster Books has Paul Tripp’s marriage DVD What Did You Expect? at 75% off (from $60 all the way down to $15). Now’s the time to stock up!

The Next Story - Mark Tubbs over at Discerning Reader just reviewed my book. 

October Baby - PluggedIn has a review of the new movie October Baby.

A Free-Falling Elevator - If I find myself in a free-falling elevator, is there any position that might increase my chance of survival? (Climbing on top of other people is not an acceptable answer.) The NY Times has the answer in case you ever need it.

True holiness flows from the soundness of a man’s doctrine. —Robert Richey
