It's Fall Ya'll :o)

Well this morning- I was thrilled to find temperatures at 60 degrees! I opened all the windows and enjoyed the coolness. I was able to keep the windows open till about 4pm - when it go up to 80 degrees and I know my husband would like some coolness when he gets home. So I closed down the house and it has cooled off nicely and quickly. These are temps I could get used to - for sure. It looks like the temps for the next week the temps will be mid to upper 80's during the days and mostly mid 60's at night.

I am reading a new book. "To Know God - a 5 day plan" by Morris Venden. Now it's gonna take me a little longer then 5 days to read it because there is a lot to understand. I am only at about page 40 and I am really liking this book. I really think it will end up being a favorite of mine.
Photo: This week I have begun to read another book. And only 40 pages in- I can already tell it will be a book to add to the top books that have changed my life! :)
Last week a friend challenged me to list the top 10 books that had changed my life. Well I really can't follow directions very well - cause I certainly came up with more than 10 - and just couldn't whittle any more off of the list. I had already condensed a series of 5 books to just listing the title of the series. Anyway I thought I would share that list with you all today as well. Just in case you are looking for a good book to read and would like some ideas.
 
1. Bible
2. At Jesus' Feet (Doug Batchelor)
3. The Cross and Its Shadow (Stephen N. Haskell)
4. Outrageous Grace (Dwight K. Nelson)
5. Steps to Christ (Ellen White)
6. The Conflict of the Ages series (Ellen White)
7. The Heart Mender(Sally Streib)
8. The Refiner's Fire (Gavin Anthony)
9. A Womans Heart- God's Dwelling Place (Beth Moore)
10. A Shepard Looks at Ps. 23 (Phillip Keller)
11. The ABC of Bible Prayer (Glenn Coon)
12. Thoughts from the Mount of Blessings (Ellen White)
13. The Cross and the Switchblade (James Wilkerson)
14. Run Baby Run (Nicky Cruz)
15 The Hiding Place (Corrie ten Boom)
Conflict of the Ages series includes:
 
 
I have found a link to a few of my favorites so that you can clink on the link and read these books also if you would like.
 
For #2- At Jesus' Feet - I found a link that gives you the first maybe through most of the first chapter. If you read what is there and you really like it and would like to read the whole book - just let me know and I will send you a copy of this book. It is an amazing little book. It is small but such blessing I received reading it.
 
Something else I wanted to share today was a quote from a cute little movie that we saw on the Hallmark channel- I think. 
 
"Don't lose yourself in the temporary.
No one has ever seen,
No one has ever heard, and
no one has ever imagined
what God has prepared."
Great quote from "Coffee Shop"
 
Anyway I hope you all are doing well. I am doing pretty good. I went to the Dr today. I have continued to have problems with my right hip area- Dr thinks that it is my back causing the problems - I don't know I just know it is close to the hip area on the right side. Anyway she is looking into seeing if my insurance will approve me getting an MRI to figure out what the problem is. I am hoping it is an easy fix- we will see. I am just tired of having such a hard time getting comfortable at night- and waking up every couple of hours being super sore - no matter what position I am in. Anyway we will see.
 
Ok - I better get off of here and get some more things done around here. I have a donation quilt that I really need to work on- my Mom helped me get one portion of it done- so I need to get the rest of it put together. Anyway I put it some where and can't find it. Its weird.
Anyway hope you all are doing good. :O)
