Have you noticed?
My 100th post is only a hop skip and a jump away!
Because I love you I'm giving away some lovely things!
I'll be posting the give away on the 100th post!
So come back and check it out!
Just for a little sneak peek,
here's one of the lovelies I plan to give away:
(sorry, but no, it's not the wedding band, people!)
So be sure to come back and see how you can be one of the lovely winners!
This morning I was perusing through my mini library, trying to pick and choose which books I would be selling at The Book Boutique (Kristen @ Dancing in the Margins is hosting this fun event June 18th -20th). And at the risk of sounding like a sentimental fool, I almost cried at the thought of giving some of them away! I know that sounds silly, but certain books are just like old friends. They've left indelible marks on my life. I've laughed, sighed, and wept over their pages. I've held them close, I've cherished them, and they have changed me in return.
I flipped open one of my favorites and read the first chapter for the 100th time.
And today it didn't fail to inspire me.
I want to share it with you.
Here is an excerpt from the book "I'm Out To Change My World" by Ann Kiemel Anderson:
I'm going where He goes...
And He'll be there beside me.
The love for which He died
Is all I need to guide me.
And He's my gold...
Is He yours?
And my silver brightly shining...
He writes the music
on a quiet summer morning.
I'm an ordinary girl in a big world
but I'm going to change it--
God and I
"Yes, sir, I'll walk with you.
And you, ma'am.
You and I together,
we can make it.
Believe with me in the world where you live.
I need you,
and God needs you.
-Ann Kiemel Anderson, "I'm Out To Change My World", 1974.
God in me
And I in His Love . . .
