a small card in a devotional book from a thrift store
words of encouragement from one person to another
I keep the card with the book and its history today and tomorrow
We also bought used books from Mead Library in Sheboygan, Wisconsin. After I read them, I can give them to someone else, or donate to another place. Lately, I am especially interested in memoirs.
And I bought Jan Karon’s new book: Bathed In Prayer, Father Tim’s Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections from the Mitford Series. I looked for the book at local stores, and then bought from Amazon. I appreciate being able to order online too. I have also bought used books from Amazon.
Please see Jan Karon’s site for more information. I love her novels. They are deep and true, so well-written.
It is endless – all the ways to learn, bless, and be blessed.
books and music from over the years live on these shelves
even if I don’t reread or listen again
somehow their healing influence is in these words
older now and when I shop and when those who help me are so kind I am truly blessed
Poems from my archives
Through Pandora, I have been introduced to new music. Some of the artists are Helen Jane Long, Brian Crain, and Karen Marie Garrett. I bought a few CDs from Amazon. I like seeing the designs of the CDs, reading the notes, and being able to listen to a whole work by one artist.
And I am so grateful for kindness – here with our blogs, in our town, and other places. Thank you!
