Reading . . .
One of the nice things about being at home is having far more time to read . . . this morning after popping down to the supermarket, I lay on the bed and read for an hour. Likewise this afternoon, Ruby and I lay on the bed and read some more with a mug of hot tea. As I didn't have any jobs that needed to be done, reading was one activity that was perfect for a cold day.
Perhaps this is why I am not a stay-at-home wife, far too many hours would be spent reading - the Lord knew best I think.
So what I am reading.
In the mornings over breakfast I am reading "Respectable Sin" by Jerry Bridges, a very thought-provoking book that gets you really thinking. Prior to this I read his other book "Trusting God", which I would recommend to others. I particular like his style of writing - straight to the point.
During the day I have been reading "The Necessary Aptitude: A Memoir" by Pam Ayres, a British writer and entertainer who wrote many poems that I read as a child/teenager that I found so funny. The book traces her life, youngest of 6 children in post-war Britain (where they had nothing) trying to better herself out of poverty. It has been a fascinating read and one I have found most enjoyable.
In between I am reading "Real Food: What to eat and why" by Nina Planck - a very interesting look at real foods (i.e. butter) compared to manufactured foods (margarine) and what effects these manufactured foods are having on our health and why we should return to the foods that are real and not processed.
|Anyone else do this!!!!|
And when I am not reading (but want to relax), I have started to watch the series "Christy" based on the books of the same name by Catherine Marshall. I am really enjoy this very gentle and heartfelt Christian series.
Its sounds like I have far to much time on my hands!!! Probably:)) But I am on holidays. What are you currently reading? It might give me some ideas.
