“It is a great thing to start life with a small number of really good books which are your very own,”—Arthur Conan Doyle.

Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely LOVE books. Fiction, non-fiction, memoir, mystery, funny & serious books. I give them away and let people borrow from my extensive, unorganized library. You might hear me say,

“Take care of this one. Treat it gently; like family.”

As an early married gal, I read all I could about engagements and then married life. Love languages of men and women. During my child rearing years, I tended toward non-fiction, self help type of books. How to potty train in one week. Then, we moved to the turbulent teen years. What to do when you teen doesn’t like you any more (not even a little bit)? Later, as our children grew and moved out, I stared at the empty nest years. How to keep our marriage flame burning brightly. Happy days came when our first born son and his wife were blessed with our first grandchild, Liberty Hope. How do I creatively grandparent from far away?

Seasons come and go in your life and in mine. One of the keys I’ve found is to be flexible. Having a positive attitude and eagerness to embrace a new chapter in life also is helpful.    image001 (Copy)

Over the last several years, I’ve been investigating various genres of books. After attending various writer conferences, I’ve learned some benefits of exposing myself to all sorts of writing.

But the most widely used and appreciated book throughout my entire life would have to be the Bible. The Word of God. Scripture. There are many different titles/references to this Holy Book. Whatever you choose to call this inspired and God-breathed book, I’ve found it to be the answer to any question that might surface during a lifetime. Whether you’re angry, sad, doubtful, happy, searching, or confused, ask God to lead you to the passage that will speak to your specific heart need.

    Just discovered you and I want to say how lovely I find your words.

    I was seeking how to instil a cheerful heart in my 66 year old son who seems determined to be miserable. His youngest son aged 23 is causing him grief but I feel that if he would be more positive and CHEERFUL things would brighten up for them both.
    My own heart is cheerful and I believe I am steadfast in faith.

    • Dear Kathleen,

      Glad to know you’ve discovered my blog and they you find the words enclosed helpful. I know from past experience than when one of our children causes us grief that it’s hard to be cheerful at times. Keep on praying for the family & never giving up loving on them. That’s what I try to do for our children & grandchildren.

      God’s word will not return void and ALL our prayers to Him are heard! Glad to hear your heart is cheerful. Remain steadfast in The Faith. As I will too. Keep watching for my posts & be encouraged!

      Blessings to you & to yours, Teresa
