Reading in Random Moments

Hey! Good to see you! Have you gotten in any reading time this spring and/or summer? We haven't gotten in as much as we would like, we have to stop for laundry and eating you know, but we have managed to squeeze in some reading here and there in random moments. We'll share ours then you can share yours with us in a comment, if you like.


  • Colossians
  • Philippians
  • Matthew
  • 1 Corinthians
  • 2 Corinthians
  • Isaiah - lots and lots of Isaiah
  • Jeremiah
  • Ezekiel
  • Various Psalms
  • Proverbs - "A Proverbs a day keeps the devil away." ~ my mom
  • Other scriptures looked up during devotions, personal study, etc.
  • Laddie by Gene Stratton-Porter - the most enjoyable read I've had in years!!!
  • Breakout by Joel Osteen
  • Become a Better You by Joel Osteen
  • I Declare by Joel Osteen
  • God's Magnum Opus by Victoria Boyson
  • The Sound of Heaven by Michael S. Tyrell - super interesting!!! You want to know this! Words have frequencies. There are pictures to illustrate the facts being presented. Short, easy, informative read. 
  • The Bears of Blue River by Charles Major
  • random assortment of Life of Fred math books while assessing correct placement for upcoming year.
  • A Thomas Jefferson Education by Oliver DeMille
  • Leadership Education: the Phases of Learning, DeMille - a reading in process
  • Yertle the Turtle by Dr. Seuss - loved this! Can't believe I hadn't read it before!
  • Gertrude McFuzz by Dr. Seuss
  • Quite a few children's books including but not limited to:
  • A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson
  • At least two books of Mother Goose rhymes
  • At least one book of children's fairytales
  • assorted golden books and other sweet children's counting and abc books
  • a book illustrated by Robert Clonsky about a hired boy named Johnny - fun, cute, along the lines of the gingerbread boy
  • a few novels whose names I cannot recall
  • a book on homemaking with "spiritual" references not necessarily Christian  yet enough good in it to plow through and sift out the golden grain from the chaff
That's all I can recall at this time:) It looks pretty impressive when written out in list form like this. Wow. Especially when I know there are more I can't remember. And those "quite a few" and "assorted" children's books? Yes, they would make quite an impressive list all by themselves. Do you think a person can add a book to their reading log every time they read it to a child, even if it is the 296th time? Also, how many times in one evening do you think a child can have the same book read to him over and over and over again? Many, many times, especially if said book has clanging fire engines in it or is about Dr. Dan the Bandaid Man. Printed testament to how much can be accomplished in small random moments of time. 

Hmmm, maybe I should see how much exercise I can add to my day by utilizing other random moments. How interesting would that be? I'm off to grab some more random moments. This time I'll be slipping in some quick sewing on blankets for winter. It's another "new" project being tackled here at Abundance House this spring/summer season. We might eventually be back with pictures someday. Wouldn't that be a rare treat? Pictures! Not of This World does have pictures of other "projects/experiments" to share with you. Whenever she gets some free time perhaps she will join us for tea and share. 

Until then...

Hugs, Love, and Prayers!
Abundantly Blessed
