Saturday Night Round-Up

26 Nov

Blog Post #217

Chilling at home on Saturday night — cruising around the web, catching up on all my social media, following interesting websites and reading up on things that are going on in the world.

There is a lot of information out there on the world wide web — I want to share some of the things I found most interesting, heartwarming or just plain fun!

Wise Words

This quote popped up in my Facebook feed — one of my FB friends posted in on his wall (Thank you, Allan!) — and I believe these are words to live by.

Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief. Do justly, now. Love mercy, now. Walk humbly, now. You are not obligated to complete the work, but neither are you free to abandon it. ~ from the Talmud

Brotherly Love

Also from my Facebook feed, this story centers around the reaction of the congregation of Heartsong Church in Memphis learned that a Muslim Islamic centre was going to be built right across the street. You may be surprised at what transpired. I was.

Random Acts of Kindness

You know how much I love RAKs — so you won’t be surprised that I’m sharing this video from the YouTube channel, Wow So Amaze — Mind-Blowing Facts and Countdowns. This list of  5 Incredible Acts of Kindness restored a bit of my faith in humanity.

Brain Food

For a little bit of fun, try these ten brainteasers. Some of them are a little tricky! How many can you answer?

Your Lyin’ Eyes

Did you know that you can hear up to 200 lies per day? Watch this Ted-Ed video that explains the language of lying.

View the full lesson on Ted-Ed.

That’s it — that’s my round-up for this Saturday! Hope you enjoyed it!
