book review: experiencing spiritual breakthroughs

This was a fabulous read.  I've read other work by Dr. Bruce A. Wilkerson, and so when offered the opportunity to read Experiencing Spiritual Breakthroughs I jumped on it.  He writes with clarity and uses Scripture as the basis for everything he lays out.  I found myself highlighting 'light bulb passages" nearly every page.  This is a book I'll go back to again and again in my daily walk with Christ; I highly recommend it!


Disclaimer:  I was provided an electronic copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

out of hiding . . .

Have mercy . . . for the first time in our nineteen years of marriage, Todd and I were both sick at the same time.  And not just "have a sniffle" sick, but miserable, can't get out of bed sick!  BLAH!  Poor Todd, just when he should have been getting over whatever that virus was (that pretty much made its way though all three of our families), he came down with strep.  My fellow was not a happy camper.

Needless to say, we've neither of us been doing a whole lot!  I missed going on our ladies' retreat to Pigeon Forge.  Boooo!!  But I got better in time to attend a guild committee meeting at the home of one of the members -- on Lake Guntersville.  The meeting day was beautiful and we had lunch out on the back deck.  What a view!!
I can't be too jealous, though, not when this is in my back yard!!
I can't wait until the weather is right for toe dipping and splashing!

I haven't been in the Nook . . . but I have been doing some stitching on a dear little dolly's dress:
Last night I finished the center petal.  Now all I need to do is a little stitching on the petals on either side of the center monogram.  
They're marked and ready to go.  That's my WOW!!  Linking on up to Esther Aliu's blog.

Turtles have been coming out of hibernation, but we had yet to see any of the baby turtles.
That is, until yesterday!  Isn't he teeny-tiny and precious??! I hope we see more!

And finally, I treated myself to an early Mother's Day gift . . .
I couldn't pass this little book up and I'm so glad I didn't . . . it's filled with wonderful recipes.  Can't wait to try some!

Hope the rest of your week is filled with happy things that make you smile!
