What's On Our Night Stands
I've been reading The Omnivore's Dilemma.
This book gives me a headache and makes me say to Aaron every day, "GET ME A FARM!"
And I say it that bratty. Sort of like her. Except I don't want one of these. I want one of these.
The Discipline of Grace does not give me a headache. It's teaching me a lot of great stuff about God's grace. Who doesn't need to focus on that awhile?
Recently I read...
The Secret Life of Bees. Loved it. This book completely stole me away for a couple days. I could not put it down. "Little Mrs. Can't Sit Down" found myself in the rocking chair in my room reading every spare second I could find (and some of the seconds I sat reading were not spare seconds...like I totally should have been doing other things).
Aaron just finished reading the second book in Andrew Peterson's new series...
North or be Eaten.
Aaron LOVED...as in totally devoured the first book...
On the Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness.
In case you're not an Andrew Peterson junky, he's the guy that wrote Behold the Lamb...the Christmas CD we wish every home could have sitting on a shelf somewhere. It's that good.
After starting the second book of the Wingfeather Saga, Aaron threw himself on the bed next to me.
I was reading the Omnivore's Dilemma trying to figure out how many coupon classes Kirby and I would have to do to buy a farm in six months. Too many...that's the answer.
Aaron was silent for a second, thankfully letting me finish my paragraph (and my math).
I glanced over at my sweet husband...we made eye contact and that's when he admitted what I had expected all along...
After a long deep sigh he said..."I think I love Andrew Peterson."
I gently patted him and said, "I know Aaron. I know."
Right or wrong, it's comforting to know that the only person my husband would leave me for is Andrew Peterson.
How can one man be so incredibly gifted? When I get to heaven, I'm going to point to Andrew Peterson and say to God..."So what the heck was that all about?"
If you love to read...or know someone who does...you should get Andrew Peterson's book.
These are downright wonderful to read out loud to the whole family!
