|My world at the edge of the forest is very snowy.|
My world has included subzero temperatures, snow, ice, and a whole lot of soups simmering on the stove. Hot beverages are needed to stay warm all day (coffee in the morning, tea or hot apple cider at other times of the day). I have chatted with Victoria about how lovely is her fur coat which God provided Maine Coon kitties... and been just a tad bit envious.
Otherwise, this is what has been going on in the Frozen Tundra as seen from the lens of my camera.
Thoroughly enjoyed Sally's new book. It made it to the #1 Best Sellers List on Amazon. I've written a lot about it here but I have told Sally I believe it is her best book for all ages and situations in life. Info... here.*
Loved the new Jan Karon novel, Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good, once I got into it. I feel as if the people in Mitford are family and Father Tim is one of my all time favorite literary people. If you enjoyed the original Mitford series, you will love this one, too. Info... here.*
What Makes Life Worth Living is the last book written by a very favorite author, W. Phillip Keller, before he passed away in the 1990s. I am just a few chapters into it because I savor each one and go back to read various sections. Further info on this book is... here.*
Some may have read his more famous books such as A Shepherd Looks at the 23rd Psalm. Definitely another sojourner in this world I long to sit with and chat in Eternity. His Words are a Balm of Gilead to an aching soul.
