I don't know what the future may hold,
but I know who holds the future.
(Just in case we needed to be reminded of that today.)
And for anyone who was frustrated I didn't share the titles of my most recent "donate" books, which have now "left the building":
|The bottom book if you can't see it is a cute children's book: Just Being Audrey.|
The top book is The Color of Tea (a novel). (I often turn books upside down to protect them from kitties, etc.) I never did read the Claudine series by Colette. After perusing the introduction or whatever, I decided it wasn't something I wanted to read. The book underneath Holy Habits is Abide in Christ by Andrew Murray. Didn't finish that one because it wasn't speaking to my heart, and life is too short! But I was disappointed I didn't care for it. Maybe some other time... Oh, the bluish book turned away is simply an extra journal. The rest of the books were enjoyed, but just not "keepers" worthy of taking up my limited space for books.
The Color of Tea had just a very few ... I'll call them steamy parts ... which I skipped over because at my age I'm just not interested in that anymore, plus I want what I read to be as wholesome as possible. These days I think that's a bit more difficult to do with TV and movies, but the content of what I read or view is something I try to keep in mind.
Well Dear Ones, you can tell I couldn't think of a thing to post about today so this is what you get! :O)
For I know the plans I have for you,
declares the Lord,
plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.
I consider that our present sufferings
are not worth comparing with the glory
that will be revealed in us.
Blessings for a safe, healthy, and happy week!
