It's one of those weird and wild winter days where it starts out all warm and rainy, melting snow fading fast into the soggy soil waiting below. The sun tries in vain to push her way through the heaviness of deepening gray cloud cover. I drag my two huge ol' thirsty ferns outside for a long deep drink. After a bit those temps begin to plummet slowly slowly slowly.
The ferns get dragged back into the house, refreshed.
This is a huddle-under-a-quilt day. With Bible and journal and a few library books that need to be finished off. And then there's a copy of Sacred Ordinary from a dear friend ... a lovely, gentle devotional to be sure. And Jim Henderson's The Resignation of Eve, must reading for all women who wonder what to do with their giftedness in houses of God where glass ceilings keep them from pursuing His call on their lives.
I pour a hot cup of fragrant tea into what is now my most favorite mug. And I settle in. Could be a long cold snap. I purpose to stay cozy. Productive. And open to what God is trying to speak deep. He alone knows what I need to experience today.
What books are keeping you company on these weird and wild winter days?
