At the invitation of my sister, Tami, I am joining in on the Readathon challenge beginning tomorrow morning! Tami said to gather myself a group of books - some snacks - and get ready to read! I also noticed that she was canning tomatoes and I'm not sure what else?? in order to settle in guilt-free tomorrow to read a way! Ha!
So - I decided I had best get my Saturday "chore" list done tonight as well. Lawn furniture is packed away for the winter. Beautiful flowers are pulled up and thrown in the trash - kind of a sad thing. I loved them so much!! Which is the reason I was so thrilled when Tami chose "The Language of Flowers" by Vanessa Diffenbaugh as our T & T (sisters) Book Club selection for October! It will be my primary focus tomorrow! UNLIKE my sis - I am a slow reader - with my main problem being that I fall asleep way too quickly when I relax with a good book! (But - I have a sleep study scheduled for Nov. 8 - so I hope to remedy that problem in the near future!)
This past summer I was blessed by a Digizine - It was recommended by a very dear friend. It is http://www.kyria.com/ and I love it! It is a monthly online magazine and contains article after article! The magazine focuses on a different spiritual discipline each month. This summer, very appropriately, the first issue was devoted to community - as our little church community is struggling greatly! The next month it featured service - another great read! I hope to get some of those articles read and tucked away in my mind for spiritual growth! (P.S. I also subscribed to Newsweek from the neighborboy's magazine drive - - - I hope to become more intelligent in worldly matters :))
Nancy Leigh DeMoss was also introduced to me this summer - her book "A Place of Quiet Rest" is a great read. It was on my shelf from a T & T Book Club Selection in March of 2005!! So it's a re-read!
Have you heard of "Made to Crave"? Satisfying your deepest desire with God, not food. Lysa Terkeurst is the author from Proverbs 31 Ministries. This may or MAY NOT get a look tomorrow depending on my mood! And then lastly, "All I Know About Management I Learned from My Dog" by Martin P. Levin. A little more lighthearted - but useful to me in my venture to "manage" 10 women.
Good luck to all readers! Join you in the morning with a great cup of coffee and ready to rumble . . . I mean read! :)
