Last night and the night before, I tried to get into The Law at Rendado, but failed miserably. Having hit the 49th page, I still don’t have a clue of what I’ve been reading. My eyes cross over the words; my fingers turn the pages, but my mind is not processing.







The same thing happened when I tried to read A Room with a View. It was like listening to a boring conversation over and over again. Yawn. The reviews are good so what am I missing?


Ah well. Maybe another time. For now, I’m leaving the West and Florence behind, returning to the tried and true – Potzsch.

    I love Room with a View and also most of E.M. Forster’s novels. It is of course impossible to write about what you are missing and it may be something as simple as not being in the correct frame of mind to read it at this time. I would say to put it aside for a year or two and come back to it again. It is wonderful.

      I hear great things about this book, and I believe you are right. I will wait to give it another try. Perhaps later this winter when the bouquet of wood smoke is in the air.

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
