In my quest for more intentional living I have a list of things that I am trying to give myself time to do everyday or at least a few times a week. Things that I enjoy, things that bring me personal gratification and feed my soul.
Simple things really like creating something in my studio, having a slow cup of coffee, baking from scratch, studying God's word deeply or reading.
It's funny how the anticipation of this time is such a vital part of the joy. Like going to the library. I keep a list of authors and books that I want to read in my purse but I will also just walk around my favorite sections hoping for a title or a book cover to grab my attention.
I gather my overly ambitious stack of books, check out with the librarian, head home, stack them in a prominent place near my favorite reading chair and wait for that quiet moment when I can open up the pages and get lost for a little while.
This stack is on it's way back today. I loved Trisha Yearwood's cook book and have added Anne of Green Gables to my favorite of all time books list (sorry again, Jen).
Any suggestions as to what I should bring home today? I'd love to hear your favorite books and authors to add to my list. I'd love to go in search of a few of your favorites, too.
