The Saturday "7"

I'm not sure I have much to share today.

1. Thanks for all the great feedback on my reviews of A Woman After God's Own Heart. It was heartening that most of you agreed with me. Although I'm worried that some of my more conservative friends were holding their tongues. Feel free to message me if you want to avoid facebook debates. :-) I want to hear perspectives from all sides.

2. One of the comments a friend made on one of my review entries seemed to resonate with a lot of people: "I always knew Jesus loved me, but I didn't think He liked me." This is something I've struggled with for much of my life. As a result, I've underlined a few verses in my Bible through the years that assure me that God not only loves me, he delights in me. I'm going to share them with you today.

Zephaniah 3:17 "The Lord your God is with you, the Mighty Warrior who saves. He will take great delight in you; in his love he will no longer rebuke you, but will rejoice over you with singing."

Psalm 18:19 "He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me."

Psalm 147:11 "the Lord delights in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love."

Psalm 149:4 "For the Lord takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory."

3.  Other than A Woman After God's Own Heart, I also read Chasing the Sun by Tracie Peterson, The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah, and No Safe Harbor by Elizabeth Ludwig (It was super boring. Not recommended.) The library is doing an adult reading club this summer. For every four books I read, I get to enter my name in a drawing for a gift card. I'm going to be reading up a storm this summer!

4. One of the many reasons I love summer is because of all the cute outfits I get to dress Lena in. Unfortunately, she hates having her picture taken, so my phone is full of pictures like this, trying to capture her adorable outfits:



Lucy's pretty cute too, even though she insists on dressing herself:
And she's certainly not camera shy!
5. For the past few days, something has been making a booming noise just southwest of our house. It sounds like distant fireworks and has been driving me crazy. I finally timed it and realized that it goes off every two minutes all.day.long. And all night long! 24/7 the stupid booming carries on. My parents think it's an automatic "cannon" to scare birds away from someone's fields. I don't care what it is. I just want it to stop. I'm pretty sure it woke both of my girls up before 7 today. Heads are going to roll if it doesn't stop soon . . .

That's all I've got for today. Sorry to disappoint. Better luck next time.
