Four Questions Friday

1. Is this book based in scripture? Yes!  2. Did this book draw my heart closer to God? Yes! A whole new viewpoint about my relationship with God is trying to free me from a lifetime of trying to “earn” His love, but never even coming close. 3. Did the writings draw me deeper into…

Skipped Day

I did. Yesterday was not a good day and even though I read, I didn’t have anything to say. Today has also been a bit frustrating. Nothing like spending forty-five minutes on the phone with a service provider – two days in a row. Ugh!  I finished Beloved Mess today. I’m sad. It was such…

Not Good Enough

Yesterday, I was feeling pretty good. I ate far too much, but we had fun making our own tin foil dinners and then my youngest daughter and I made funnel cakes for dessert. Yesterday was also payday, so I was feeling that rosy glow of having a few dollars in my pocket. I had spent…

Stop Listening

Home and family have always been a big messy part of my life – my youth family and my adult one too. I’ve felt cheated and robbed. I’ve cried a million tears. I’ve been so angry at God that I refused to even speak to Him. This one bit of my life is something I…

Not a Typical Day

Up too early to drive my hubby through rush hour traffic and then myself back home. Checked the calendar for any “must do’s” and went back to bed – until 2:00. In the afternoon. Up to spend the next three hours driving people places (my car died the big $400 death yesterday). Let’s be completely…

This Book is Driving Me Crazy!

Don’t get me wrong, I am in love with Kimm’s words and message in Beloved Mess. The problem is that I just want to consume it whole, in one day, not drag it out over the two weeks I spend with each book. On the other hand, I also want to only read maybe one…

Day Three

Here I am, day three of this book and it looks like this! What a mess. Get it? Hee hee. I have dog-eared, written in, sticky noted it, color penciled it, circled things, made notes, and I’m on page 50. Now this is my kind of book! I am actually shocked at how much Kimm…

Oh Boy, I Needed This

It’s stormy outside today. Overcast with thunder growling almost constantly. It’s perfect weather for me today. I tied up the curtain in front of my desk, opened my blinds and am enjoying the show nature is putting on for me – grey, cloudy skies, wind whipping through our big tree in the backyard, hopefully it…

New Book Monday

My sweet husband saw this new book sitting on my desk and asked if it was by the same author as the last one. Nope, I answered. Huh, they really do look the same, don’t they?  This book will be a sweet little addition to the books I have previously read. Waking the Dead by…
