BumbleVee has honored me with the "You Make My Day Award." Thank you! It's lovely to know that I made your day, Vee.
Often I wonder about these awards. I love to receive them and find it challenging to give them. Does that reflect a selfish spirit? Yes, it must. (Perhaps that's why I like the movie Lost April so well because its theme is selfishness versus generosity.) Anyway, I am certain that all those who received Oscars last Sunday evening did not stand at the podium wondering to whom they could pass it along. ;> So this one will rest here for a bit while I ponder where it should go. As always, it could go to every blogger on my list since you all make my day.
A Woman Who Is challenged me to the Page 123 Meme. It looks like fun!
1. Pick up the nearest book of 123 pages or more. No cheating!
2. Find page 123.
3. Find the first 5 sentences.
4. Post the next 3 sentences.
5. Tag 5 people. (Or, as I am going to do, multiply by eight and add two, which means that anyone on my blogroll who would like to do this one day can consider herself officially challenged.)
The book is Classic Christianity by Bob George:
The subject is law and grace. I have found that very few Christians are familiar with this topic. Those that have heard of law and grace tend to put it into the category of a stale theological subject.
Now that's pretty dry stuff for a book that I will finish today and start reading over again tomorrow. And when I finish it the next time, I will pick it up again and do the same thing. This book is incredible! The subtitle is "Life's Too Short to Miss the Real Thing." I have been in extreme danger of missing the real thing for way too long. Look for the March quote of the month from this book that will be/is a lot more interesting.
Confectioner's sugar snow falling today...I heard the sleet pinging off the windows last night so I am glad that it has switched to this. Gosh, when did my blog become a weather report?!
This is the snow mountain at the end of my driveway. Maybe I should document the melting progress of same...check in next Saturday for another riveting photo of it.
A relaxing Saturday to one and all!
