God is Awe-some. I am super thankful for many things :)
I so badly want to write an inspiring, encouraging, or even educational post. That isn’t really seeming to work.
I don’t have much to say.
Or rather, I don’t have words to say? I have plenty of thoughts, feelings, emotions, and have been through plenty of lessons, but somehow I don’t feel capable to share them all.
Heh heh, I could share a picture. Some of my readers here have already seen this picture. Every time I see it (in my room, or on the computer in our pictures) I laugh. I just think it is hysterical. And pretty great. But hysterical.
A signed photo of Richard Armitage. I admit, I am very happy with it. I sometimes can’t believe I have it, and that is some of the times I laugh when I see it.
I’m thinking about doing a post once a week or so with favourite Pinterest finds…at least there’d be posts on here :D Lets start with one now…
A thimble necklace. Reminds me of one of my favourite books, “Bella At Midnight” by Diane Stanley :)
One of my utmost favourite book series are The Knights of Arrethtrae by Chuck Black. Despite that I’ve heard they’re “geared” towards younger/youth, I think they are for all ages. They are amazing. I’ve read them numerous times. I love Sir Bentley. I even have a shirt that says Sir Bentley (granted I made it say that, but still). Sir Dalton is good too, though.
I just finished “Lady Carliss and the Waters of Moorue” for the 2nd time (I think) and of course, I loved it. I related to Carliss. In a few ways.
I don’t like romance books. In fact, I try to stay clear of them. They’re not very good influences, in my opinion. Most romances leave you discontented and wanting. No good.
“Lady Carliss…” though, has a spot of ‘romance’ (I don’t know that you can fully call it that, but I guess, what else would you call it?), but it leaves you the opposite of most romance-y books. For me, at least. It left me more contented to wait. To be fully the King’s, and wait for my ‘Dalton’ or ‘Bentley’.
These books are dear to me…maybe because I love Knights and Ladies. Maybe because I love sword-fighting. But definitely because I love Who they serve. And how they serve Him. Whenever I read these books, I’m filled with the flame. The flame to wield the weapon of the Prince and follow His calling. All the Knights are trained in the sword, and we as Jesus’ Knights and Ladies must be armed with the same sword, which is the Bible.
The Knights of Arrethtrae, Tessa Afshar’s books, and Francine Rivers’ “Redeeming Love” have had great impact on my life. Those are the books I hold dear :)
The King reigns….And His Son!
