It has been a week since I last sat quietly with “Sweet Tea”.
I am so blessed by those of you who return to visit with me here and take the time to leave a sweet comment or prayer. You bless my heart and encourage me on.
I am just getting settled back into my home after being away more of the past 4 weeks than here. I have never traveled so much in my life but God has me on a fast track for building air miles. He has provided a sweet combination of fun and ministry and I am very grateful and blessed.
If you have followed “Sweet Tea,” as I know MILLIONS do...you know that my last adventure was spent at the International Christian Retail Show.
We had a BLAST there shopping for new books and baubles for the ministry but the best thing was gathering 3 FULL boxes of FREE BOOKS!!
If you are a book lover like I am, you understand the THRILL of being the first to hold the FIRST copies of the newest Christian releases (and most are AUTOGRAPHED to boot)!!
I have Fiction books, Bible studies, books for the home, books for the teen and books for the man. I have kid books and Devotionals. Books! Books! Books! Just waiting to come your way!!
New book releases are one thing but books that are inspired by God to be released into the greedy (in a good way) hands of His Bride, takes this event to a whole new level.
There was a bit of talk about new trends in reading, BLOGS (of course!), E-Books (Big Stuff Coming there) and Kindle (or is it Kindel?)
However, in my heart there will NEVER be anything like the fresh cover and pages of a brand new book.
I have been reading to my kids since they were babies and now I love to read to my Grandkids (or for those 2 who no longer fit in my lap, buy them new books). I have a few new ones autographed especially for them!
These guys are coming your way AJ and Jacob!!
No matter how hard I try, I just cannot get a vision of cuddling up with one of my little ones with an EBook or a Kindle!
My boxes will arrive any day now so if you will take a minute to share what your favorite book of all time is or why you LOVE books and are praying for the Christian Booksellers of this Nation to stay strong, I will put you FIRST Place in my Give-AWAY drawing.
In the meantime—I need to figure out how to get “Mr Linky” on here cause I have LOTS of Giveaways coming your WAY!!! Anyone who can direct my steps with that gets signed up first!!
Sometimes I miss my quiet times. Even smack in the middle of a 40 day Journey with Jesus, sometimes I miss sitting still in my Prayer Chair. I miss stopping everything for a few quiet moments of just Him and Me. No distractions other than my journal; a devotional book…
Do you have a VISION or VISIONS for your LIFE ?? Can you SEE your Vision? I mean REALLY SEE IT?? God says that we PERISH (suffer complete ruin or destruction) without a VISION. 18Where there is no vision [no redemptive revelation of God], the people perish; but he who…
My heart weighs a billion pounds today for a few reasons. Some are tellable and some are not. The tellable one is that our second born son, our daughter-in-love and my 3 youngest “G”babies drove away today in a UHaul. They will not be back for a while. They are…
I know that I start many posts out like this but….WHERE OH WHERE has the month….THE YEAR….gone??? The truth is, as fast and furious as it has flown by; as much as people (busy people I might add) comment on the busyness of MY life, in spite of the fact…
My daughter Julianna and I were watching the movie “Nazareth” the other night when she whispered out loud, “Of all the women in the world, wonder why God chose Mary?” My thoughtless response was “she was willing”. No real contemplation, just an automatic, “wise woman of God”, “Bible Teacher that…
We all love to laugh! Some of my favorite childhood memories revolve around 4 little girls caught up in uncontrollable giggling. I can almost hear my sisters and I laughing so hard that our giggles had no place left to get out–when all of the sudden they would travel from…
