"...from the longest dream, how real it seemed, until your love broke through. I've been lost in a fantasy, that blinded me, until your love broke through." ~Keith Green
So now that my blog has a wonderful new make-over (don't you just love owls?), I'm going to begin making over it's contents as well...
Once a week (I'm thinking Thursdays...), I want to post about one thing I am thankful for. I have been in quite a rut lately, and not a good one. I think this will really help me remember the countless blessings that I have been ... blessed with!
I also want to do a literary post once a week. It's been a while since I've read anything new, so I want to use this as a challenge to find something different to read and to make a post on my thoughts whilst reading. What book do you think I should begin with?
Harry Potter (book 1)
The Time Machine
The Adventure's of Sherlock Holms.
PS-if you're going to vote for Harry Potter, I need someone to lend me a book...
And my third post for the week? Updates on life, new pictures, random thoughts, or whatever I feel compelled to share :O)
And I will finish this post with a little bit of everything
*deep sigh and holding of breath*
Here we go!
The other day a friend of mine posted a quote by Keith Green on Facebook (if you don't know who he is, click here!) I suddenly had the urge to listen to his music - his wonderful, straightforward, honest, simple, music. Having none of my own, I looked him up on YouTube and listened to several of his songs - my favorites are "Your Love Broke Through" and "Make My Life a Prayer to You." ...all I can say is that God really spoke to me ... through someone who died 5 years before I was born, via YouTube. Yes, my God is awesome, and I've really been thanking him lately for the blessing of Keith Green's music. Like I said, it's so simple, and so honest, every word is felt in my heart.
About a week ago, I began reading Jane Eyre (for the second time), and I must say I like it much better the second time around. It does get a little dry in some places, but I now know what places I can skim over and not be dragged down by Charlotte Bronte's minute description of every detail. This compelling story is set amid a whirlwind of illusions, much symbolism and gothic style. It's for the truly romantic, as well as down-to-earth, as well as literary-nerd, at heart.
Current Happenings -
This Easter, my husband had to work all weekend! So rather than being stuck home alone, my in-laws adopted me for the day. I went to church with them Sunday morning, had dinner with them and went to visit some family that evening. I also made my husband a wicked-sweet Easter basket that he came home from work to, Sunday morning:
Then, the day after Easter, our friends Chris and Katie came to visit with their yorkie-puppy Mario (oh yeah, our friend Ben was there too :P )
and he fell asleep in my arms <3
I seriously miss this girl...and now her puppy too!
...then, yesterday, I went to the Tigers'-Mariners game at Comerica Park with my wonderful husband and his brother, Jake.
Jake and Adam
Okay, the Tigers' may have lost, but we still had a fun time!
That's all for now,
Much Love to All!
