It's 4:48am, and I've been awake since 3. Thats 3am.(Good Morning Sewing Sister) I was dreaming I could smell smoke, and being a mom, it of course woke me up. I did indeed smell smoke, but it was the wood stove of the neighbors next door. It has been cold here for a few weeks, so people are having to get up in the middle of the night and refill their wood stoves. Now that I'm up, I of course can't get back to sleep. Must have had just enough to wake me up I guess. There are times when I am woken in the middle of the night, and I know God wants to do business with me. He either has something to tell me that I have been avoiding, or I need to be in prayer. So, I started the coffee, and decided to get going on my day a little early. We (Maine), are expecting another storm today starting around 10am, so I was planning on being out the door by 7 to get groceries anyway. I thought after I get home from groceries, I would make a big pot of this,I've been told I make a scrumptious corn chowda. If your out today Sewing Sister,stop by and I'll give you some to take home.
Get all cozy in front of this,
And read this,
I talked with Florida Sister the other night, and she has read it. She told me it was the kind of book that you want to be able to read in one setting. Perfect day for that don't ya think?! I've had many friends who have already finished it, and are dying to talk to me about it if I would only make the time to read it. Well girls, today is the day. I've been shhhing our Sunday night coffee group at Tim's when ever they start talking about it. They can't seem to stop themselves. You try shhhing 12 women who want to talk about something. Like I've said before, good luck with that. They however have been very patient about it and have only told me these few things: Once you start it, you won't be able to put it down. It is kind of sad, but in a good way. (Is that possible?). And also they've all agreed, It helps to see God more "outside the box". Not the way most of us tend to keep Him in our own minds. Limited. YES!!! Now that sounds like a book I will enjoy. I'll let you know what I think. Enjoy your Wednesday. You know what I'll be doing. Oh yeah, If you were wondering, Blue Eyed Husband did build the fireplace surround in the picture. I know, he's awesome! Hugs from Maine
