My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

Outside my window...

Not exactly outside my window, but at a nearby park when Rosie was getting ready to run her last two races, we got a visit from the blimp!!


I am thinking...
about Mr. Pete's class reunion that we attended over the weekend. It was so nice to see people we haven't seen in decades, and renew acquaintances and hear new stories. Overall, it was a very successful weekend.

I am thankful...
for a safe trip and for a nice Thanksgiving weekend.

I am pondering...

my old hometown of Flint, Michigan.  Parts of it are lovely and look like they are hanging on.  Some friends of ours who live in Flint seem to be dealing with the water situation well with filters and regular testing. But some other relatives rely on the bottled water and there are water distribution centers all over town.

This is one of the houses on the street Mr. Pete grew up on.  There were hundreds of houses like this one.

In the kitchen...
Chicken and bacon barbecue as we say goodbye to my Godson/nephew this evening before he heads off to start a new life in another state.

I am wearing...
Gray workout pants, black knit top with 3/4 length sleeves, and my new gray jacket with deep pockets that I wear all the time!

I am going...
One of my favorite things...


Calvin and Sarah sent me a picture of the advent wreath I sent them.  He said they love it!  I'm so happy.

    A quote to share...
    This is more of a passage than a quote, but I just loved the description of Grandma Hutto's cottage!
    The oleanders led to a gate in a white picket fence. Grandma Hutto’s flower garden was a bright patchwork quilt thrown down inside the pickets. Her small white cottage was bound to the substantial earth with vines of honeysuckle and jessamine. Everything here was dear and familiar. Jody ran down the path through the garden; through the patch of indigo, in feathery, rose-lavender bloom.

    A picture to share...
    These are from Holy Redeemer Church in Burton, MI, where I attended jr. high school back in the 70s. We finally got to go in and see what it looked like on the inside.  It has changed drastically but I think for the better!
