I can't find my camera battery charger. I have prayed and asked the Lord to help me find it since He is obviously the ONLY one who knows where it is.
I can't find my Bible. I have another bigger ESV Bible but I hate to have lost my "thinline, easy to carry in my purse so I can hold multiple hands in the parking lot, brand new" Bible. I have prayed and asked the Lord to help me find it since He is obviously the ONLY one who knows where it is. It's been months so I bought a new one.
I have misplaced a stack of McDonald's coupon books. I have prayed and asked the Lord to help me find it since He is obviously the ONLY one who knows where it is.This all makes me sound VERY absent minded and irresponsible, but I would like to remind you of my ever-present go-to crutch: I have two special kids and a three year old and all of them take and move things. Two of them are basically unable to tell me where they put what they take. So, while I hope that my mental faculties are in tact and it's my children's fault I lose things, I thought I would play it safe and type my book list for 2011 right here where I'll know where to find it.
I started out the year so well that I decided to really set a goal for myself. In the past I have aimed for two books per month and have ended up reading two books. Period. This year I am taking a different approach.
I listed out areas of life I want to focus on and came up with five:
Special Needs (S)
Daily Living - Practical (L)
Then I listed three books for each category and a few extras to fill in along the way. Okay, the list:
L - 1. Total Money Makeover
T - 2. Disappointment with God
L - 3. 1000 Gifts
P - 4. Intentional Parenting
P - 5. Bringing the Gospel to Covenant Children
P - 6. You Can't Make Me
L - 7. Between Walden and the Whirlwind
T - 8. Prodigal God
T - 9. Almost Christian
T - 10. Respectable Sins
S - 11. Same Lake Different Boat
S - 12. Our Special Needs Child
S - 13. Expressing Faith in Jesus - Church Membership for People with Cognitive Impairments
M - 14. Love and Respect
M - 15. The Respect Dare
M - 16. Love that Lasts - when sinners say I Do
If I stick to reading at least 15 minutes per day I should be able to finish a few. I'll keep you posted.
