Introducing the Daddle — It’s a daddy saddle. No, really. It really exists! For some extra laughs, read some of the customer reviews on Amazon…

Giant Chinese Buses — It’s a novel concept: alleviating traffic congestion by building giant buses that cars can drive right under! Will be interested to see if this ever makes it beyond the conceptual and into reality.

Every Life Has a Story — As if there weren’t already enough reasons to love Chik-Fil-A! You absolutely must click through to watch this short video. The more I learn about this company’s business practices and the way they genuinely value their customers, the more I love them. Plus the chicken is awesome.

Valuing People’s Time — Dr. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, one of the greatest theologians and preachers of the 20th century, was extremely concerned about valuing the time of those to whom he preached. If even “The Doctor” was concerned with not wasting people’s time during church services, what does that mean for those of us who lead but aren’t brilliant? Humbling…

Stopping a Robbery — At the risk of sounding anti-2nd Amendment (I’m not)… what if this were our first reaction to an armed robbery? A pretty awesome story.

    Can’t believe the Google Stories got me again!!!! I confess that the first one I ever saw made me cry- the Parisian Love one. But this New Baby story just sent me right over the edge. It was soooooo sweet. I guess it’s the new parent in me that loved it so much. Thanks for sharing!
