so I read

Itching to get outside, to get working on my garden and all my outside plans.  Itching to get on my bike and ride when it's warm enough to not ache in my lungs.  Itching to spend sunny afternoons at the beach or hiking trails.

But it is winter.  So I read.

I've challenged myself to read more than I ever have in the past.  I've finished three books this month and am currently reading two more.

Rare Encounters with Ordinary Birds by Lyanda Lynn Haupt


"Birds will give you a window, if you allow them.  They will show you secrets from another world - fresh vision that, though it is avian, can accompany you home and alter your life.  They will do this for you even if you don't know their names - though such knowing is a thoughtful gesture.  They will do this for you if you watch them."
Great Preaching on Christ compiled by Shelton Smith
II Corinthians 3:18 "But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory."
"If you wish men to see more of Christ on you, from glory to glory, keep looking up into His glorious face and thus keep reflecting the glory you see there.  Spend much time alone with Jesus."  -R.A. Torry
