Psalm 27:1

The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

We Love Books!!

This year, Hannah received quite a few books for her birthday.  Dick and Daphne bought her "Liberty Letters - The Personal Correspondence of Elizabeth Walton and Abigail Matthews   The Story of Pocahontas, 1613" and "The Lost Nancy Drew Case Files."  Melanie bought her four books in the Little House series - "The Little House in the Big Woods," "Farmer Boy," "The Little House on the Prairie," and "By the Shores of Silver Lake."  Hannah had also gotten "Violet's Perplexing Puzzles -  A Life of Faith" book from Mike and me and "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" (I can't remember who got her that one) just before Christmas.  I read two of Hannah's Little House books and remembered how much I loved them.  As a young girl, I read everything I could get my hands on regarding the adventures of Laura Ingalls Wilder.  I loved all her stories and even found some she wrote of her move to Missouri and her visit to San Francisco.  Hannah is enjoying them too.  I am thankful all my kids have a love of reading.  The boys love to read too, especially at night when they are suppose to be in bed.  Andrew will climb into Will's bed and they try to read by the light of Will's night light.

I've also been busy reading.  Tommy Tenney and Mark Andrew Olsen have a book called "The Road Home - A Modern Retelling of Ruth's Ancient Story."  It is awesome!!  I highly recommend it to anyone who loves to see stories of the bible come to life.  The authors also wrote "Hadassah," of which the movie "One Night With The King" was based.  It is another great book.  I've also read "Unto Us   Son of God Series - Book 1" by Sharon Lindsay, "Mom's Trapped in the Minivan" by Cynthia Sumner, and "Shadow Warriors  - Inside the Special Forces" by Tom Clancy with General Carl Stiner (Ret.) and Tony Koltz.  I'm still working on the last two, trading off reading them in the car rider line and crocheting.  I also have three books coming to do blog tours on that should be here soon.  Can't wait!
