My birthday gifts!

A few short weeks ago, I turned 28. My wonderful husband bought me two new books! I always love getting books! Anyway, the books he got me are nice hardcover ones! The first one is called Home-Making and was written by J. R. Miller. It was originally published in 1882! I have yet to read much in it but what I have read so far has been excellent! The other book I got is called Verses of Virtue ~ The Poetry and Prose of Christian Womanhood. It was compiled and edited by Elizabeth Beall Phillips. I have also not finished this book but am enjoying it immensely! I will be posting some of the poetry and prose from this book sporadically but hopefully consistently! I look forward to spending more time posting about my life and family!

  1. Books are such wonderful birthday gifts, especially when they’re such wonderful ones! The Miller book sounds really neat; I’d love to see it next time we visit. John’s mom gave me the Verses of Virtue book last year; I still haven’t read all of it, though. I read almost the entire “Blessed Motherhood” section and found it very encouraging. The poem “Mother, Mother, Watch and Pray” is one that I remember striking me to the quick…

    I look forward to poetry, prose, picture, and plentiful postings!

    And, now, to you personally (rather than via Scott’s blog), I wish you a happy birthday and hopes for a blessed 28th year!

  2. Hurray! It is good to see you back in Blogdom! I look forward to the plentiful posts and pictures! I see you all each week-but it is STILL fun to look at pictures! 🙂
