Live blogging from the beach!

Look! I am live-blogging from the beach! Okay, not literally from the beach, but from our hotel room at the beach. Still an accomplishment in terms of blogging locale, at least for me. Prior to this, I've only blogged from two locations: my dining room and my back porch. Maybe once from my bedroom. My horizons have been considerably broadened!

Thanks once again for all your sweet comments and emails of support and assured intercession. I want to reply to you all, either through email or a visit to your site, and I will in time. For now, let me say how grateful I am for the community we enjoy here in our little corner of the internet!

I also have a new gig I am excited to tell you about: I will be a regular contributor at a brand new site for books and reviews, 5 Minutes for Books. We are a sister site of 5 Minutes for Mom and plan to offer reviews of books for all ages and preferences, plus giveaways and other book-y type thoughts! We're "Reading Into Everything" and we hope you'll join us. Today marks liftoff, so go, check it out!


Stay tuned; more postcards from the edge (of the beach) to come (maybe)!

  2. This is my first time on your blog! I just listened to your audio bible file in your left column that I really enjoyed. Then I read your post today about children's book reviews and it got me thinking about this great children's book so...I thought I would just send the information your way because of how fitting it all is! Weird!

    The book: "This Bible Talks!" by Pamela Fischer - Narrated by Michael David McGuire (He does national voice overs and you will recognize him.) It is a great book for pre-readers, and one of the best parts is they give a portion of the proceeds to various Christian charities.

    This is where I found it and ordered it online: http://www.thisbibletalks.com

    Hope you find this useful! I will be back to read more! Enjoy your trip.

  3. Oh that is so great! I love reading your book recommendations. I just picked up Twilight by Stephenie Meyer at my used book store because I was looking for a light and fast summer read. I know you read "The Host" but that's not out in paperback yet. And then I sat in the bookstore and read it ALL BY MYSELF for an hour while the older kids watched the Weekids at home. Bliss.

    Enjoy your vacation. Congrats on your new gig. I'm adding it to my reader now.

  5. Stand before the ocean, throw your hands up and realize it all belongs to Him. He gives us each day as a gift. We are small in comparison to his "huge", and yet, we are loved far more vastly than the expanse of the waters before you now.

    You.

    Loved. Valuable. Worthy of the life of God's Son. At the end of the day, He is the only truth that matters.

    Rest in Him before his majesty.
