on a few shelves
new generation of poets
since I began
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
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.

Jan Karon’s novels are a part of my life. I reread a few of her recent books this year.
Her new book, to be published this fall, is Bathed in Prayer: Father Tim’s Prayers, Sermons, and Reflections from the Mitford Series.
Carol Purington writes poetry, and I have been reading her haiku and tanka for years. You can read some of her poems and learn more about her books at Woodslawn Farm.
Farm Song is Carol’s new work in progress. This is a family project for Carol. Please visit Woodslawn Farm for the latest information.
