Very inspired by this autobiography of Oswald Chambers (Abandoned to God) that a neighbor loaned me.


"He knows, He loves, He cares, nothing this truth can dim, 
He gives His very best to those who leave the choice with 
Him." --  (Source Unknown)

Unexpected book reviews on Amazon written by two friends, and a request from one of them to review it on her blog. Truly my biggest blessings come when I'm not looking for them or trying to make them happen.

On a whim, I stopped in at the Appalachian Readiness store on my way to deliver books elsewhere, the owner was very happy to take a couple on consignment.

Couldn't find my keys when my friend dropped me off after a dinner we had been to.  I thought maybe they had fallen out of my bag while I was getting it out of the back of her car, but she had driven off by then and I didn't have any phone numbers with me--or my cell phone--so I walked up to my apartment wondering what to do, and hoping maybe if I dumped out the contents of the bag they would miraculously appear.  When I got to my door, the keys were in the knocker. By the grace of God, they were found by someone who knew who they belonged too.  Maybe the neighbor I had been talking to while waiting for my friend to pick me up?  I must have dropped them when I was putting the mail in my bag, or perhaps left them dangling in the keyhole of the mailbox?


For the very first time in  almost three years, one of my pictures made it to the 365Project Popular Page.


One of the ravens was in the courtyard, and flitting from building to building, making sounds I've only read about but never heard. A soft tok-tok-tok, and something that sounded like an imitation of another bird.


Went to the grocery store to make an even exchange, and wound up getting $4 and change back. When I told the lady at the customer service desk that I wasn't owed any money, she was very insistent that I was.

Although I wasn't able to see the blood moon this morning because of the clouds, I saw the biggest, brightest, most amazing rainbow I have ever seen.  It seemed to encircle the whole sky.
