Chris Tomlin

Is a very gifted man. I can't tell you how much I love the song How Great is Our God

The splendor of a King, clothed in majesty
Let all the earth rejoice All the earth rejoice
He wraps himself in Light, and darkness tries to hide
And trembles at His voice Trembles at His voice

How great is our God,
sing with me How great is our God,
and all will see How great, how great is our God

Age to age He stands
And time is in His hands
Beginning and the end Beginning and the end
The Godhead Three in One
Father Spirit Son
The Lion and the Lamb The Lion and the Lamb

Name above all names
Worthy of all praise
My heart will sing How great is our God

How great is our God,
sing with me How great is our God,
and all will see How great, how great is our God

Then Sings my soul
My Savior God to Thee
How Great Thou Art, How Great Thou Art
Then Sings my soul
My Savior God to Thee
How Great Thou Art, How Great Thou Art

How great is our God,
Sing with me
How great is our God
and all will see how great, how great is our God.

What I'm Reading

I'm currently reading In the Enemy's Sights by Martha Perry, and listening to The History of Love by Nicole Krauss.

I have a ton of reading to get done this week, I need to move more quickly than I'm doing.

Will update when I have some reviews to post.
Yay, Survivor starts this week and the Seahawks are in the Super Bowl!

Sorry for the silence

I have been quiet for a very good reason--lots of reading!

I had five books to read and review for Christian Library Joural. I'm way behind, so I needed to get them done quickly. I did get four of the five done, so I guess I just have to be content with that.

This month I have more Romantic Times books to read. I'm in the process of stepping away from the series books, and I've been taking on more full length novels. I have read Carly by Lyn Cote and Fair Warning by Hannah Alexander. I interviewed Liz Curtis Higgs for an article, and that was so fun. She is wonderfully nice and very personable. Then I took on reviewing Grace in Thine Eyes too. So, before February 6, I still have to read six series romance books and the Higgs book. I am a book-reading machine right now.

I did get a book read for BookLoons, but haven't had the time to write up the review yet...it's coming.

The kids have their first gymnastics competition today, I am cautioning myself not to get too emotionally involved in their performance. It's just for fun!

Got to get to church...I'm helping with the 1st and 2nd grade Sunday School this morning while their teachers are on a cruise.

More updates to come soon, I promise!

This week's reviews

Not so many this week. Life is crazy, I just have to say. I haven't had much time to write, read, or do anything. Not sure why either. A little seasonal depression maybe. Right now I'm at a place where I don't feel like I really fit in anywhere. Everyone is totally busy, and that could be part of it, but I'm feeling blah in general, not wanting to do anything but having tons to do.

Anyway, here are the reviews I had posted this week:

Miss New York Has Everything

Finding Anna

I'm currently trying to get through my Christian Library Journal stack. I think I'm going to give up reviewing for it after I get through these. It's just too hard to keep up with everything. I'm reading Unspoken by Angela Hunt. I've got two weeks of reading before I have to get started agian on the RT books for April. I'm listening to The History of Love by Nicole Krauss. It's really good so far.

I'm off to work on my Bible study for a few minutes before I go pick up Grace.
Maybe I just need a vacation. I guess I can wait a month until we go to the beach, but I am sure it won't be long enough!

Monday News

I had a bunch of reviews posted over the weekend:

Penguin Sudoku 2006

I'm No Saint

A Virgin's Guide to Everything

Hot Flashes and Cold Cream

Leave it to Claire

The Red Hat Society's Acting Their Age

Living Under God

I Grew Up on a Farm

Finished my Romantic Times books in time and got my reviews turned in--all without having to stay up half the night. It was nice. Got to watch Desperate Housewives, which was fairly good. Some funny moments. I recorded Gray's Anatomy since it was a recap show. I am SO excited that Lost is new this week--finally!

I'm currently reading Miss New York Has Everything by Lori Jakiela. It's a memoir and moving at a good pace so far. I'm still listening to the Jane Austen Book Club, but I am having so very little time in the car, I don't know how quickly I'll finish up.

Gotta go to Winco before picking up Logan. I'm making a recipe from my new Rachael Ray book!

Finally...an update

I have been so busy over the past few weeks I've been unable to update this as regularly as I would have liked. LeeRoy was off work for 10 days on vacation, so we did lots of fun things like playing in the snow and hanging out together. Not much computer time, that's for sure. I did get quite a bit of reading done.

Newest reviews posted:
Confessions of a Boyfriend Stealer

Sooner or Later

I have lots more both pending and pending on my desk waiting to be typed up. Hopefully I'll get at least two more done today, that's my goal at least.

I'm reading my RT books, right now I'm reading Front Porch Princess by Kathryn Springer. It seems like the Steeple Hill Cafe books are more mom lit lately than chick lit, not that I mind! I'm listening to The Jane Austen Book Club when the kids aren't in the car, which hasn't been often lately. But I think I'll be switching to The History of Love because it just came in at the library. Not sure yet.

I finished the year with 213 actual paper reads and 15 audio books. I finished the year with A Million Little Pieces which was really thought-provoking. I'm going to be participating in an essay group, writing an essay for one book per week, kind of like So Many Books, So Little Time I am thinking about posting the essays here...not sure yet, depends how personal they get!

All right, time to buckle down and start writing. Grace is at a friend's for a half hour, I should get at least two done.
