Farewell to Christmas 2011!
Christmas 2011 was chock full of sweet memories. We really had two Christmas' this year. One in early December with our daughter & her family in the sometimes sunny south and one here in Pa. with our son and church family, whom we love to beat the band. The book in the collage does not have anything to do with my Christmas decorating ah.... I just wanted to show you what I brought home from the library. 'Unbroken' is non-fiction, which I enjoy but almost always end up with fiction. So far, 'Unbroken' has been hard to put down. An excellent sign for a great read, I always think.
I know my friend Patsy often recommends good non-fiction on her reading blog. If only I could remember to do or even think of half of what I'd like to! And, my stack of unread books is growing. Some books I buy while out shopping at bookstores, and flea market finds that are just too good to pass up. You know what I mean I'm sure! Turning around in my 'library' desk chair here, I just counted 28 neatly stacked books on my want to read pile....make that pile 's'.
Ahh, sweet contentment. Books all around the place, tea & coffee and a little left over candy yet. January isn't so bad is it? Warm wishes for a cozy day! But... I remember who gives the day...
A bit of the hymn; Under His Wings....Ira Sankey, William O. Cushing
'Under His wings, oh what precious enjoyment! There will I hide till life's trials are o'er;
Sheltered, protected, no evil can harm me, Resting in Jesus I'm safe evermore....
