    I’ve heard great things about 1000 gifts. Haven’t read it yet, but it’s next in line, I think.

    Heidi-yes, it is amazing to realize how the OT and NT fit together. So cool.
    So glad you are taking care of yourself and doing your exams!

    Nancy-isn’t it just the best book?? Yes, I am counting gifts. I try to keep a notebook handy all throughout the week, then on Mondays I post my list here at the blog.

    I too have been reading 1000 Gifts and following along the 1000 Gifts book club over at (in)courage. Are you keeping a list of your 1000 gifts and adding to it each day? That has been such a blessing for me to do.
    Have a blessed Sunday,

    I love the One Year Bible. I could never decide what to use for a devotional and it works perfectly. (It’s the Bible, duh, how could it not be right?!!) In 2007 I read the whole thing and for the first time realized how well the old and new testaments jive together sometimes. In 2008 I read through the old testament, 2009 the new, 2010 the Psalms and Proverbs. In 2011 I’m back to doing the whole thing again. I’m so happy I stumbled upon it five years ago.
    P.S. Thanks for sharing your cancer journey. I am your age and cancer-free but you’ve inspired me to actually monthly self-exams!

    I am reading, “First We Have Coffee by Margaret Jensen, “Shepherding a Child’s Heart” by Tedd Tripp, and “Your Scars are Beautiful to God” by Sharon Jaynes. They’re all very different and help me in lots of areas. I used to be a big marriage book reader; but after awhile they all seem the same so I ventured out. Thanks for sharing what you read. I love reading.

    hi ann!
    i think my husband would appreciate one book at a time…the headboard of my bed is usually overflowing with books that I am reading;)

    that book sounds great–i just got done with a “painful to read at times” book called “Why I Jumped” i tend to gain strength when i read and see others in desperate situations, survive. thanks for sharing!

    i love reading 🙂 but i usually can only do 1 book at a time… plus my bible.

    this morning i finished a book that i would highly reccommend, but not to you… at least not for right now. it’s called “even silence has an end,” and it was written by a woman who was kidnapped by the FARC (a communist revolutionary guerilla group in columbia) for 6 years. such an incredible story of survival… but at times painful to read.

    a good one to remember for when you get beyond all of this craziness.

    thanks for sharing your reading list 🙂
