Hey gatherers!!! How are you all doing??
It's been rainy and hazy and humid around here and let me tell ya, it's not helping my outlook!!! Saturday night a sore throat came upon me out of nowhere!! It hasn't progressed but it's leaving me very tired and weak and well, just kinda achey!! Seeing that I don't really have the time to nurse a cold, I have been pushing through and not doing a bad job at it either. But today, well, that's feeling like a different story....it's gonna be a tough one! I'm leaning hard into Jesus, giving thanks anyway and looking for the blessings, but I'm weary.
one of the first things I saw this morning as I came downstairs....Smokie
He's looking a bit weary too!!
I'm still going to push on and school the children and I will muster up some strength to shower and go to youth group later - because I love it!!! I have the opportunity to spend time with some of the coolest kids and adults that I know - so nasty little cold is gonna have to take a backseat, cuz I'm goin!!!
So here's just something little for your midweek slump -if you're having a slump that is........I went to the Christian Bookstore on Friday - something that I don't get to do very often at all -and I picked up these little cuties!!
"Almost Amish" looks to be a very good book about slowing down and finding the blessings that come with a slower paced life - Yes Please!!!
"The Story" is the bible in, you guessed it, story form!! It's condensed into 31 chapters and reads more like a story book.
I haven't had a chance to look at either book yet, well let me rephrase that.....I've been "looking" at the books since I brought them home, what I meant to say was that I haven't had the chance to READ either one of them!! I can't wait!!
I hope that you have a blessed week!!! Remember that each and every day is a gift, no matter what the wrapping looks like!!!
Oh hey!! What are some of your favorite reads....new or old?? Share them, please :)
