My Mind’s Eye

“…but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…” Romans 12:2

That mind is a tricky thing…affecting the way we see just about everything.

I think I heard this line first from Carole Turner.

For real, though, I’m adding to my list of “books to read” much faster than I’m crossing them off…

Right now I’m reading book 2 in the Mark of the Lion series by Francine Rivers and OMG!! It is unbelievable.

Definitely will stay with me for a long time…if not forever.

Other books I’m hoping to get to very soon:

1. The Shack

2. The Great Divorce

3. Barbarian Way

4. Anonymous

Ovid, Roman poet

Can someone explain that to my babies, please? πŸ™‚ OK…and to me too…

Did I tell you there have been cows in our neighborhood?



it has been hilarious. Apparently a fence where these cows live had a tree fall on it and well…they have found their way to our neighborhood πŸ™‚

I think they were on our street 3 times last week.

The best, though, was when I went outside to throw out the trash and there was one in my yard right near our swingset.

I’m jumped a little πŸ™‚

Fun times…
