I took the weekend off from this blog because, basically, I had nothing new to say. Just the same ol' three things I've woven into two-thousand posts and 6 years:
1. Above all, grow closer to God.
2. Let Him change you (your whole world will change)
3. Crave and go after peace.
Of course, (as I've heard said), God doesn't require that we always have a new thing to say, just a now thing .You know, something timely and relevant that will, perhaps, help someone.
Well, I still don't have even that at the moment.
So. Just to let you know I'm still here, I thought I'd give you a simple list. And here you go:

As they say, there's no accounting for taste. :)
The majority of these are what I'd call comfort reads and I highly recommend each one, especially this time of year when many of us feel the snow covering our yards is creeping inside to cover--and freeze--our brains.
I am so there right now. heh.
Who knew there was so much to celebrate in February??
If you, too, have read any of these a few times I'd love to hear from you in my comment box. Or, even better, it would be fun to see which other books *you* have read over and over!
