30 Day Challenge - Day 18

Name a book I could read over and over again, and never get tired of.

Did anyone else notice that sentence ended in a preposition?  Oy.

Back to the topic at hand.

Obviously, the top would have to be the Bible.  I've read it many times in my life.  Every time I read it, I learn something new.  It really is a living book, and I just love it.  My dad teases me that I say "Oh that is my favorite verse ever!" about every single verse in the Bible.  He is right.

I also love To Kill a Mockingbird.  I read it first when I was, I think, in 4th or 5th grade.  I really identified with Scout in so many ways.  Atticus reminded me of my dad, because truly, he doesn't judge people by their outward appearance, but by their hearts.

God Came Near, by Max Lucado is another book I love.  I first read it after I had my son.  My relationship with the Lord grew so much at that point, because I realized how much God must love us.  As I've said before, I can't think of a single person I love enough to sacrifice my children for, but that is exactly what God did.

The Big Book of Hints by Heloise.  Oh, stop laughing.  I love little hints like that.  I could almost write my own book.......

My Antonia, by Willa Cather.  I first read it in high school, I believe, and it will always be one of my favorites.    

Today, I have to catch up on the laundry...what fun!  Yesterday I just enjoyed playing with the kids, reffing any arguments that broke out over getting to play with big sister, and helping Flower with her science fair project!  (Which, by the way, is going to be awesome!!!!!!)  Today, I really need to get caught up!  But playing with kids is just....so much more fun!  

Yesterday, Mattie's friend said "Now I see why my brother likes coming over here so much....you are silly!"  That just made my day.  Today, I think the little ones and I are going to make Halloween masks out of paper plates...woohooo!

Have a blessed day everyone!

I am toying with the idea of writing an actual book.  I have a really great concept, and I think it would be a real tear jerker.  I just need to sit down and write it!

Have a great day, everyone!

I enjoy reading every single comment I get, and make every effort to respond to each one...as well as return the favor! I do allow anonymous comments. But, if you use anonymity to hide behind cowardly attacks on my faith or anything else, it will be deleted. Also, if your comment is lewd, vulgar, and full of potty mouth words, I will delete it. Thank you!
