Recommendation


At 2:00 a.m. this morning I jotted down my thoughts for the final chapter. No, I'm no there yet, but I have to get it down when it comes to me, or else it's lost forever. Yes, I said 2 a.m. Insomnia again -- just too wound up to sleep. I've been very productive this week.

I read Francine Rivers's (Looked that up, and there are varying opinions on the rules for possessive proper names that end in S. What's your opinion?) Redeeming Love in one night, and it's over 400 pages. What a beautiful story! Terry Whalin recommended I read it to see how delicate subjects are treated by a pro. I was not disappointed. Thanks for the heads up! I also discovered why she has so many books in print. This book will blow you away.

I haven't been able to read much of the newer selections because of my budget lately. All the new releases are checked out quickly at the library. I have to want a book very badly to purchase it these days with all the other needs my family has. This book was well worth the purchase price as I am sure I will reread it many times. Some would argue that I should sell off some of my collection, seeing that times are hard, but there's no way I can part with my babies. Books have been my solace all my life. I can open a book from the past and vivid memories flood back over me. They are part of me. If a book measures up to my standards enough to earn a place in my home, then you can bet it's a worthwhile read. Life is too short for trash. (Okay, so I've been known to read what I call "trash" mags. You know, those gossip rags. But rarely do I buy them; I get hand-me-downs. I will not tell you who DOES buy them, but her initials are K.K. LOL. I will concede that they have their place as frivolous entertainment. I justify it as "laughter doeth good like a medicine." Have you seen those "worst-dressed" celebrities? Gives me hope.) But see, I'm veering off my point. Which is, let me see, what was ?

Oh, it was great books. Get Redeeming Love. You will love it!

Your blog may serve the Lord, but blocking someone from hitting the next blog button just pisses people off.

I wasn't aware that my banner blocked it. Will look into that. Sorry.

C. H. Green said...

It doesn't block it on my screen. How do I fix that for you?

Link works for me...

"Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it"....(my favorite Solomon 8:7)

I think I like "Rivers'" I think that's one of the acceptable versions right?

Yes, Rivers' is one of the acceptable versions. And it makes sense, seeing that the extra s seems a bit redundant. Thanks for stopping by.

It's like I've mentioned before. It can be something as simple as the browser you are viewing your blog in, Cindy. In Firefox, it looks a little off, but IE is fine. It varies with different blogs. It is nothing that you are doing. That's why I keep 2 browsers on the ol' HD. :-)
And always keep books. At least the good ones. It's always great to go back and re-read them. It's like watching a rerun of your favorite show. :-)
Have a great weekend!!

What a rude 1st comment...could have said that a bit more kindly~

Anyway...I am in the school of thought that the "'s" was for plurals and contractions and the "s'" was to show possession but since WORD only clears my "error" if I use "'s" then, that's what I do!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Regarding your tech issues, your best bet it to either find a new template in Blogger or have a professional do it. If you go to your sitemeter home page you should find the HTML code for it. Copy it down then mess with your template then reinsert the sitemeter button. You shouldn't lose your stats then!

And by the way, that first comment was horrible! All the person would have to do it hit the back button and then hit the "next blog" button again!
