from Annie's Annuals
I have a new constant companion: my iPad. Life is different with it...it's more than like; I love it.
The first book I downloaded was a new best seller entitled Burial Rites. Today I ordered The Far Traveler. Both are historical fiction, well researched.
I share these with you because I first heard of them in another's blog. Neither of these were in my local library, so I purchased them. Also, I've been known to re-read a book or two.
I learned long ago that God gave the gift of languages, books, printing so we might be equipped to read His Word...what a gift to also be able to read other books and learn even more. He has given us those who wrote the scriptures and preserved them for us, and He has given gifted writers today who inform, inspire, encourage us to learn even more. I thank Him today for the gift of words and understanding.

There is a 'monster' winter storm menacing much of the eastern half of the U.S. We got a little, mostly cold, b-r-r-r. I haven't been out of the house for several days and couldn't today, if I wished. The car is frozen shut! Can you see the ice on windows?
I'm thankful the 'upstairs family' got home safely last night from skiing in W.V. A blizzard in the mountains isn't my idea of fun!
