I spent my 42nd birthday reading–that was the gift I gave myself. I also watched Becoming Jane with Anne Hathaway(can be viewed on-line through netflix) about the life of Jane Austen.

I’ve thought of writing this post many times.

I was an infant in the 60s.

A child in the 70s.

A teenager in 80s.

Hit my 30s in the 90s.

And now I’m in my 40’s.

At work on Thursday, I found out Farrah Faucett died and mentioned it to my co-worker who said, “Who is that?” And I had to explain that she was of Charlie’s Angels Fame– back in the 70s when I was just a child. Of course, my co-worker had not been born at that time. Makes me feel kinda old.

I’m thankful for making it this long. Jane Austen passed away when she was  only 43(I think)–but, oh, did she write some good stuff  by that time.

A Basket of Secrets – Diann Hunt – Historical Romance from Heartsong Presents – A big secret is revealed about the parentage of Abigail who was left in a basket on her adopted parents’ doorstep. But will it threaten Abigail’s chance for true love and also threaten her parents’ marriage? I enjoyed this romance.

Pride and Prejudice – I had listened to an audio version and had watched the BBC version several times, but had never read it until now. I thought I would find it boring since I knew what would happen, but I loved reading it and couldn’t wait to get to the section where Mr. Darcy asked Lizzie to marry him.

Deuteronomy – see my post on Worship.

Joshua- A prostitute helps spies. The promised land was conquered and then divided. The people were told to be strong and courageous.

Joshua 24:14-15 (New International Version)

14 “Now fear the LORD and serve him with all faithfulness. Throw away the gods your forefathers worshiped beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD. 15 But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
