snow day

my internet came back this morning ... it was a short little outage that my server promised to compensate me for, with one free month ... *grin* ... bonus!

it was a snowy day yesterday (my view pictured above) ... i spent it puttering around the house and also reading ... it was nice to just sit and enjoy the quiet of my world ...

the book i am reading is called Night Light, by
Terri Blackstock ... it's the second in the series ... about a world where all modern conveniences cease working because of pulses that disrupt them ... interesting concept ... what would a person do? no blogging, that's for sure!

i just got back from a long walk around town ... now ready to sit and read for a bit ... i'm sooooo bad when i get a good book - i need to know what happens!

I enjoyed reading your posts tonight. Very inspiring. My favorite is the picture of the sheep and the verse. There's such peace and comfort in knowing that nothing can seperate us from God's love and protection.

I have been known to stay up all night, literally, reading a book I just couldn't put down. :)

s.hunt ... isn't it great the way God does take care of us? even though we sometimes want to go in another direction, rather than the one the Good Shepherd has prepared for us ... blessings to you ...

catherine ... me too - i love it when i find a good book! lately i do much speed reading, it seems if the book doesn't "grab" me, then i speed read it ... hope you've found some excellent reads along the way!
