This post is a bit all over the place. If I was writing in a journal, it'd be, too. No editing or critiquing here. You just get my brain barf. :-)
Let's start with that book list I mentioned yesterday. There are about 10 trillion books I wish I had time to read. But for now, these books actually grace my bedside table. My disclaimer is that I normally don't read "spiritual" or "self help" books. I like to dig into a novel much like one enjoys sitting down for a movie. Writing is an incredible art form and I most appreciate that when I can digest a novel every now and then. However, now that I'm a parent, and am realizing more and more the extremity of my sin nature, the self help, spiritual, and parenting books make greater sense to read.
Look Me in the Eye by John Elder Robinson-a book about asperger's; interest was piqued when I started watching the son on Parenthood; even more piqued when I learned my MAPS mom's son has asperger's; have yet to read
The Hole in Our Gospel by Richard Stearns-have heard rave reviews; can't wait to dig in
Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent-read this in 2 days; a compelling story about Heaven; recommended by my mommy; a must read; it is still fresh, like a wound, and I want to weep about it it's so good
Silver Boxes by Florence Littauer--we saw Florence's video at MAPS. She's precious. Her book is a solid reminder and motivator to watch our words
Treasuring God in Our Traditions by Noel Piper--recommended by a dear friend; what little I've read so far has been too.neat! (especially good for someone like me who's not really into traditions or keepsakes...)
Shepherding a Child's Heart by Ted Tripp--recommended by a friend as she said my disciplining style reminds her of this book; have yet to dig in
There you have it! What are you reading?
Wal Mart was out of cheap semi-sweet chocolate chips. What's up with that?
Channeled the summer side pony (=laziness) & wore my $.50 vintage, huge sunglasses:
Story crawls now (eeeewwwww dirty kitchen floor & messies in the picture!). I am pretty much obsessed with her and her brother. My heavens God is good to me.
Also, if you are a blog stalker and haven't left me some comment love in awhile, or, EVER, then read this post. I dig Jami's sense of humor.
