my new found love...of books.

i did it.
i finished.
i never would have thought.
me.
a non-reader.
someone who did not like to read.
or wouldn't take the time to read.
i just finished a five book series of novels.
novels.
as in 30+ chapters in each book.
all five of them in only four weeks.
can you believe it?
me.
i did it!!!
i'm more proud of myself than i think anyone else would be.
yay me!!!

my bestie, tera, is sending me the next series that ties into the baxter family drama that karen kingsbury writes.
another five books.
i might go into withdrawals until that package arrives at my doorstep.

which books do i love so much?
karen kingsbury books.
christian novels.
she and gary smalley are so amazing at adding the most perfect scripture in just the right place.
to really get you thinking.
and praying.
and thanking God for your own family.

Photobucket
(photo has nothing to do with post.

thank you Lord for all you've given me.
thank you for a husband that adores me.
children who look up to me.
and friends who build me up.
who love me...for me.
amen.

I LOVE that you have discovered a LOVE for reading! I can't get enough of books! If only there were more time in the day. =)

I just finished my book club book tonight and the next book on my "list" hasn't arrived yet...so I am itching for something to read!

Gonna go check these books out on Amazon. Thanks for the suggestion!

I also love what you are thankful for. When you have those things...there really isn't need for much else, huh? Blessings to you! XO ~Erin
