So, what do you think is in here?  


You might think the “thing” is bigger than the picture shows, so I will give you a little hint and tell you the dimensions.  It is 5×7.

A mini photo album?

It has a cute zipper that has two little charms at one enclosure. 


Hmmmm, what else could it be?

One of those super super thin Bible?  (the reason for the tiny FAITH charm) 

A crochet hook case?

A double pointed needle holder case?

Wow, I am running dry with ideas.

Okay, time to let you know just exactly what is inside this little zipper case.

Here we go:

TWO  – (yes, TWO) Bibles

TWO – (yes, TWO) dictionaries

FOUR (oh my yes, FOUR) books

All of that in this little black case?  It’s a miracle! 




I love it!   I use to carry a tote bag everywhere I went – and it was filled with at least one of my Bibles (I love having different versions, but my fave is the NKJ.) a devotional I am doing and just a regular reading book.   My arm would hurt hauling this stuff around and also in that tote would be my knitting.    I am in a knitting funk right now so I am getting a little break.

Not so with my kindle!  Wow, I just feel so free and liberated!    My dear sister in the Lord and I meet just about every morning before we both head off to work to share the Word, friendship and pray for each other.  She has an ipad and it is loaded with Bible apps etc.   I was glad to pull my big old faithful Bible out of my bag, but I would always be so curious to watch that ipad pull up the text so fast etc. 

I could not afford to get an ipad – and the Kindle Fire HD was a little out of my reach, but my dear Momma gave me money for Christmas and my wonderful husband chipped in the balance and I ordered my kindle paperwhite right after Christmas and it arrived last Friday.

I can lay in bed with NO LIGHTS ON and because of its features I can read as if all the lights were on and not strain my eyes or bother my husband.   My arms don’t get tired trying to hold up a heavy book.   This honey is as light as a feather even in the case!  

Do you have an Ereader?  Knook?  Kindle?  Do you read on your ipad? 

We are un officially in a January thaw.   The days are getting a little longer every day.   I am starting to get excited now that Christmas is gone past and the decorations are put away.  Hurry spring, hurry!

Maybe soon I will start to knit!

It was just my hubby and I “ringing in the New Year” last night.   The adult children had different places to be other than sitting with the old folks for New Year’s Eve!   That was okay with us.   We rented a movie from the local REDBOX (Premium Rush) which I slept through a lot of it.  (I blame all the shoveling of over 6 inches of snow for the reason of my exhaustion!)  It was a quiet night.

We (my hubby and my daughter Jessica) took in a late afternoon showing of The Hobbit.  We are HUGE LOTR and Hobbit fans – this movie did not disappoint.


I especially liked the music/sound track.   I think I will have to order a copy of that!

I have been giving my 2013 goals/resolutions thought all day long.   It is now 10pm and I think I better set  a few down “on paper”.

1.  To fill my heart, mind and soul with more of God.  When those things are filled and I am walking in His will, all things promised will fall into perfect place and I will have eternal peace and joy.    More of His word, prayer and serving others.

2.  To be more faithful in entering in my blog.

3.  To pick up my knitting needles and knit.   At this point, I don’t care what I knit, but I would like to get back to knitting socks or knitting items to felt.  I am deep in a  knitting funk and I just can’t seem to see to the other side it’s end.   Hope it comes soon.

4.  To read more – as soon as my new Kindle Paperwhite arrives.  (Which I am waiting impatiently for the holidays to go away so the postal system and delivery systems will hurry along and bring it to me!)

Thanks for sticking with me in 2012.

Happy New Year!
