God brings the weary woman laughter. Laughter is His gift--oxygenated grace.
Reading: I've got several books going right now, but my favorite is this gem of an Advent devotional by Ann Voskamp. While I'm not a huge Ann fan (just have a hard time with her writing style, I guess), she has impacted me by deepening my sense of gratitude and opening my eyes to the many graces and mercies of God in my life that I might otherwise have missed. The short daily readings and questions included in The Greatest Gift have certainly been a blessing so far this Advent season.
Knitting: I've got even more knitting projects going than books right now; just did a quick count of my wip's on Ravelry - 15 - yikes! Thankfully, not all 15 are knits for Christmas which would be impossible. The one currently receiving the most attention is this Christmas knit for my Anna. It's a super soft bulky yarn from Lion Brand and the needles are huge, so it'll go fast which makes me happy. :)
I think I'll need to organize all those wip's once Christmas knitting is done. Really, I shouldn't cast on a single new project until I've completed what I've started, and I definitely shouldn't buy any new yarn...
What's on your needles? What are you reading?
