Link love. Walker said to call this 'Internet Potpourri.'

Monday: a giveaway. Whoo hoo!

Till then, I've collected a veritable slew (I do so love the term veritable slew. Kinda sounds like a college kids' garage band, huh?) of links for you lately!

(I'm so sorry you can't right click. I had to disable it because my posts were getting copied. I guess you could open up a lot of windows of this page and then click over on each one?)

I LOVE accents. I love the subtle differences between them. Probably because my dad is a native North Carolinian, NC accents and Texas accents sound almost identical to me. But an Austin accent is different from a Houston accent. And let's not even get started on the East Texas/Arkansas accent. When I lived in London, I frequently mistook Irish girls who had moved to London for Texans. Weird, huh? But this article helps explain why: Did Americans in 1776 Have British Accents?

Must Christians obey the Ten Commandments? The answer may surprise you.

Come on, you know you've fantasized about it: Woman uses dirty diaper in road rage incident

Color photos from 1939-1943: take some time to soak these in. It's time travel. I never realized I thought that people back then - like my mom - lived in black and white until I saw this. Why was I so shocked by blue sweaters and red barns?

Have y'all seen Mila's Daydreams yet? I promise, it will make your day.

Rich or Drive Rich? I tell you what y'all, we're millionaires. I heard about this blog from Dave Ramsey. (Talk about an accent.)

Missing Missy: perhaps the best email forward of all time: I have to say I agree.

Marla Taviano, a modern day hero of the faith: again, I agree!

Rules of parenting. These are some good 'uns.

What is happening to so many kids in Haiti and
Pregnant, Poor and Unprotected
Let's not forget about Haiti, okay? The ground isn't rumbling but the earthquake is far from over. Ignoring the least of these does not make them go away.

Innocence this is beautiful

Piper answers, can a man listen to Beth Moore?

And while we are discussing Miss Beth, y'all saw Melissa's response to the Christianity Today article about her mom, right? If not, please hop over.

Every month gives away a free audio book, and this month it is Tim Keller's Ministries of Mercy, the Call of the Jericho Road. Ready, set, download!!

My favorite recent podcast: The May 12 Freakonomics podcast called "How is a Bad Radio Station Like the Public Schools?" was one of the most fascinating - and encouraging - things I have heard about public education...well...probably ever.

My favorite recent quote:

I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God, it changes me. CS Lewis

And my favorite recent youtube, only it's a vimeo.
Do y'all know Rhema yet?
Her mom died just months before this was produced. This baby girl will bless you, down the the two-front-teeth-missing lisp.

Rhema Marvanne - 'Amazing Grace' REVISED 6/11 from Black Olive on Vimeo.

Happy Sabbath my friends.
