Hey everyone and welcome back to TGWAM! Thank you so much for coming back this week! I know it’s kind of strange the way we’re posting this week. First, we’re posting on a Saturday which isn’t either one of our normal posting days, and the way Bryanna and I are writing is different too. We’re doing a combined post. This means that I’m going to write half of the blog post and Bryanna will write the other half. Basically what you’d think it’d be. :,D
It’s Memorial Day Weekend. If you are looking for some good books to read over the three day weekend here’s my recommendation from among all my readings of things military and military history between 2016-2017. The only exception in the list is the first book which I read in 2013 but remains among the top book I think of when someone I think of a quality work.
I was reading a blog today about what causes us to sin. I thought about the sin I committed just 2 days ago. Someone asked me where their canvases went (for painting pictures) and I immediately said, “I don’t know.” But I DID know. I ran out of canvas and used hers. I was going to buy her some new ones to take their place, but I had forgotten.
I gave her one of my canvases and she was happy. But when I was at prayer last night, the Lord convicted me that I must confess my sin to her and apologize. I will do that when she comes over this week.
Stability: the quality of something that is not easily changed or likely to change; the quality or state of something that is not easily moved; the quality of state of someone who is emotionally or mentally healthy
I’m relaxing in the home of a dear friend as I prepare to spend the next ten weeks of my life at a youth summer camp. I start this very daring adventure on Monday. The camp is beautiful and small and it is the most lovely of visions. I am honored to be part of their story.
Happy Saturday! I know, shock of all shocks, I’m actually blogging early! I have been so busy this week that I’m even amazed that I’m fitting it in, but that’s the wonderful thing about doing the laundry, you toss the stuff in the machines and it kind of takes care of itself, until it’s time to fold the clothes and put them away.
Does classic literature count as a fandom? I like to think it does; I certainly nerd out about it. More specifically, I nerd out about literary web series.
The thing about the classics is they’re character-driven rather than plot-driven. We’re expected to make deep, empathic connections with realistic characters as they go about their realistic lives and, usually, fall in love in the end.
