A big thank you to Sarah who let me know Granny Miller is stopping her blog and to quickly switch over to her archives blog address. That will remain in the links on my sidebar even though I don't keep most blogs there that are not being updated at least once in awhile. I know many of us appreciate her wisdom.
I think (someone may be able to tell me for sure in the comments) that this was the second "Granny Miller" who took over when the first one also retired from blogging. I may be thinking of another blog as my mind is frozen. We awoke to a temperature of -8 this morning... and it is getting colder as the weekend progresses!
[NOTE: Thank you to Debbie who let me know this link now leads to a p*rn site. It worked fine yesterday so obviously it has been hacked. I will try to fix it if possible later but in the meantime I removed the link]
I can understand as I go in phases of loving to blog and then staring at a blank screen thinking I don't want to talk to anyone, even through Blogger. Which is why I need those mind clearing breaks once in awhile. The freedom of no writing feels good for about a week, then I think about something I want to share but I am on a blog break, and by the time it is over I often can hardly wait to get back.
Over the past week, I have been pondering my word for the new year. One kept floating to the top, a word I've actually been pondering for awhile now. That word is... Heritage. I curled up in the overstuffed chair in my study with a steno notebook and a purple pen and made two pages of ideas having to do with the word Heritage. Yes... I think that was the right decision! There will be much more written in the days and weeks to come. :)
Now, a last minute thank you and a link that you must follow quickly if you have a Kindle or Nook. Thank you again to everyone who enters their Amazon shopping through the widget here. It is truly a blessing. I used most for Christmas and birthday gifts recently but managed a book for me, too. I will share it next week. I plan to use the credit received in January to get some really good flashlights we need! Sometimes one must be practical.
Beth Moore's publisher is offering many of her books free for the Kindle and Nook. I just found out from a friend that more than the original four are now free for the Kindle! Here are the links and as always, check to see if they are still free.
*Beth Moore's Kindle books... here. The free books were listed first when I was last on the page.
*Beth Moore's Nook books... here. You have to search a bit to find the free books here.
There are also some Beth Moore books for the Kindle at only 99 cents each. Have fun! I stocked up on some free reads and one 99 cent book from one of my favorite Bible teachers.
*These are the publisher's links and not my Associate's link.
