in the stack

This may be my favorite read into the New Year. I may have to buy it because
it makes me read slowly, grab my journal and my bible. Keller wrote it because
he didn't have a book on Prayer to recommend to this new generation. He does
go back to the greats: Jonathan Edwards, John Owen, etc... He gives personal
testimonies. Makes me think of Father Tim in Mitford.

This is a present to me for Advent. I always grow my collection each year. I love
the poems and bits from literature Sarah has chosen. Her blog is God-Hungry Imagination

                                                      Grandma Moses' son:

                                                  very pretty cookbook to read

                  Finished this MISS READ and always rereading her Christmas stories:


I don't think I have read this one:

I gave Clara the Will Moses book last year. He grew up near where they live and of course, Grandma Moses first paintings were discovered in Hoosick Falls, their little town. I have been going through At the Still Point, also compiled by Sarah Arthur and love it. Thought of ordering the Advent book. It's almost Christmas, but not too late. I love what she has done in compiling these selections from literature. Hope all are happy and well at the Buckingham house!

Our library no longer has its copy of Village Christmas! I loved reading it each December. Maybe I'll have to buy my own- or one of the other Christmas books she wrote!

Have been collecting Miss Reads for several months...have eight now, but none for Christmas. They're all so sweet. A comfort.
