i love book?!!

So several months ago I was on a huge reading kick...I'm getting ready to start another one, hopefully - beginning with the book Choosing Gratitude by Nancy Lee DeMoss! It has been highly recommended to me, and I'm planning to start reading it this week.

But, several months ago I read a few great books that I'd like to highly recommend. Today, I'm promoting Comforts from the Cross by Elyse Fitzpatrick.

Comforts from the Cross is such a great book - ENCOURAGING and CONVICTING and SO COMFORTING! It really blessed me, and was especially pertinent for the time I read it. The Lord is so kind! Also, it's so easy to read, because it's set up as a daily devotional. There are thirty-one "chapters," about five pages each. I read one each morning and it was wonderful! Comforts from the Cross is literally one of the best books I've ever read. In fact, I think I'll read through it again this March!

is late really better than never?

If so, then please enjoy these pictures :)

This summer, the wonderful Manfredi brothers took their awesome sister Erin on a cross-country trip before she went off to Hong Kong. Well, Erin is a professionaly, top-notch photographer. So anyway, when she was here, she took a few pics of us just hanging out at the beach. I thought I'd share a few :)

Isn't it a blessing to have talented friends!! And don't you love Robert's curly hair?!

You know when you pray for the Lord's timing, His will...for His glory, but secretly you assume He will still graciously give you what you want when you want it. I did that/I've been doing that and have just been realizing it through the last few weeks. Isn't God so good to be so patient with us?

I just wanted to give that little update. I also hope to be posting some Christmas pictures soon...if I can get internet somewhere long enough. Ok. peace out :)
