30 Day Blog Journal - Day 4 and 5! - Better late than never :)

Well, it's no surprise, but I got a little behind on my 30 day blog journal...I should be on Day 6 today, but instead I am going to do Days 4 and 5 in the same post :)

Day 4 - My favorite book.

I've narrowed it down to two...

Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers - For those of you who don't know, this is a fictional story based off of the story of Hosea in the Bible. I am honestly not much of a reader, but I think I read this book in maybe 2 days...and it was a pretty long book. I just couldn't put it down. It was a beautiful picture of Hosea's love for his wife, but even more so, God's love for matter how many times we turn away from him and continue in some sort of sin, He keeps pursuing us and loves us where we are.

Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom - This story is just so precious to me. I can only hope that if ever I am diagnosed with a terminal illness of any kind, that my attitude can be this good and that I use whatever time I have left to love and serve others.

Now for Day 5 - My favorite quote

There are so many quotes out there that I love, and you're probably going to be surprised...but I actually only picked one! This is something I think I actually read on a magnet once...but I love it.  

"Risk - more than others think is safe. Care - more than others think is wise. Dream - more than others think is practical. Expect - more than others think is possible." -Cadet Maxim

I want to live by it for the rest of my life, because I think the words just speak to what LIFE should really be like.
