No Need For The Sunday Paper

(photo via Little Bidie Secrets)

I am still on a high from being a featured blogger over at The Secret Is In the Sauce. I am still not done visiting all the awesome blogs and women that came by to visit!

Tomorrow is Muffin Tin Monday! Can I get a woot-woot?! I am looking forward to putting together something fun for the kids and to seeing what everyone else makes as well. Also, wanted to clarify the "copy cat" theme a little (see sidebar). The idea is to copy a fave muffin tin meal of another muffin tin Monday participant as your tin for that week. You can search the archives here at Her Cup Overfloweth, the ones at Sycamore Stirrings (MTM's first home) and our Muffin Tin Meals Flickr Group for inspiration. Just remember, to mention and link back to the blog/photo you are "copying" to be sure to give them credit. Also very important...please include your direct post's link and not the link of your blog, as this greatly inhibits your visitors from finding your muffin tin meal post after Monday is over. If you are unsure of how to do this, just email me and i'll explain it!

I have a ton of great links to share with you this week!

Simple Mom: Ever wanted to know what cloth diapering is all about and what the options are? Simple Mom explains 4 Cloth Diaper options in great detail. If I we were having more kids, I might go this route!


Scripture for this Sunday:

James 3:2-12
(emphasis mine)
2We all stumble in many ways. If anyone is never at fault in what he says, he is a perfect man, able to keep his whole body in check.
When we put bits into the mouths of horses to make them obey us, we can turn the whole animal. Or take ships as an example. Although they are so large and are driven by strong winds, they are steered by a very small rudder wherever the pilot wants to go. Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole person, sets the whole course of his life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.
All kinds of animals, birds, reptiles and creatures of the sea are being tamed and have been tamed by man, but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.
With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be. Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? My brothers, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water.
