Second Week

Back before Christmas, Teresa asked me if I'd be willing to write a weekly blog for T2. I was really honored, but took some time to think about the reality of it. Shortly after Christmas, I agreed to give it a try. Today is my second posting. It is nearly 8:00 on Wednesday night. I have promised Teresa I'll have my posts ready by 9:00 on Wednesday nights and I've got nothing. Don't get me wrong, I've meditated on (okay, make that read) the verse for the week, and even tried out a couple of ideas, but nothing seems to fly. My only tangible excuse is that I have been sick since Sunday, but that hasn't kept me from reading, watching TV and even doing some laundry. I mean how hard is it to write some thoughts out to share with other women? Pretty hard let me tell you, when the clock is counting down the minutes.

So here's the deal for this week. I've got no great insight into the verse; I don't feel great; I've got family stress; I've got personal stress -- and it occurs to me that you all have those same things and maybe even more. So this week's post is a list of books I REALLY want to read. I hope you get some ideas from my list and share some of yours here for me! Have a great week : )
