Happy New Year friends! I took a short break from Theotokos to stitch up Brian's Christmas present. (No, this is not late! Our Orthodox Christmas is in 6 days. :) It is an ornament from this year's JCS Ornament Issue.
The other finish I had last night was The Slumber of Christianity by Ted Dekker. It was the book I was reading and I wanted to finish it in 2014. This is a non-fiction book by Ted. A very good one. Here is an odd quote from the book: “The world’s bumper sticker reads: Life sucks, and then you die. Perhaps
Christian bumper stickers should read: Life sucks, but then you find
hope and you can’t wait to die.”
I have from the library the latest Ted book I did not read yet, Hacker. I will start it today! Can't wait. Ted has approximately 45 books. I have read 43. There are two more older ones I missed that I am going to try real hard to get through our library.
I read 40 books in 2014. I read 40 books in 2013 also. That's odd. :)
Isn't this sweet?
Here is where I am at on Theotokos.
May God richly bless every minute of every day of this new year for you my friends!
Thank you for your friendship. I appreciate every single comment you leave me.
Stitching and reading and praying,
