Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone has a wonderful, beautiful Christmas this year! What are you planning? Justin & I are going to Missouri until the 29th--the longest time we've gotten to be with our families yet. It's going to be a blast!

What can I give Him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb,
If I were a wise man
I would do my part,
Yet what I can I give Him,
Give my heart.

~In The Bleak Mid-winter by Christina Rossetti

Merry Christmas! God Bless!

A Christmas of Classics 2010

Every Christmas season, especially with snow on the ground, I want to curl up in a blanket with a hot drink and read what I call "my classics", which may not be "classic" or even "old". Here are some of the ones I've enjoyed this year:

Auralia's Colors by Jeff Overstreet (a very new book, but definitely a classic in my mind).

The Rose Rent by Ellis Peters (in the Brother Cadfael Chronicles, about a medieval monk who solves mysteries. Almost as good as Agatha Christie's novels).

The Oath by Frank Peretti (very scary and interesting).

And, once again, At Home In Mitford by Jan Karon (I've been reading it aloud to Justin--it makes such a good book to enjoy at the end of the day).

Merry Christmas, all!
