Thanks to my sweet, longsuffering husband, I ventured out today. He hired a sitter and took me to Barnes and Noble for a writing day. I could not have done it without him. Being out showed me that I am not ready to try to go alone. He had to hold bathroom doors for me and drop me off at the curb, not to mention dealing with stairs a few times, which still totally scares me to do. By the time I got home, I was exhausted!
But I have to say that after several weeks of being cooped up inside all the time, the inside of a Barnes and Noble is a beautiful place! And of course anywhere that is filled with books is beautiful anyway.
Last week in one of my care packages from my P31 friends was a Barnes and Noble giftcard. So today I got to spend mine. I walked in, took my seat at a table and looked up to find the book I wanted right away. It was serendipity! Right within my line of sight was Beth Moore's new book-- To Live Is Christ. Since I have been studying Acts at CBS this year, this new book on Paul's life will be the perfect icing on this study. I have put it next in line to read-- just as soon as I finish Debbie Macomber's Knit Together. I am savoring having both of these gems by my bedside. To make things even better, I got the new Sonlight catalog today AND the new Above Rubies.
And so, I am going to stop my writing frenzy tonight and leave myself several hours to snuggle up with my books in my cozy bed. Getting out was great-- coming home was even better!
ETA: I was wrong. That book is NOT Beth Moore's new book. It was published in 01. But it is new to me and the timing of the subject matter was perfect for me!
