Friday's Fave Five


Suzanne at Living to Tell the Story hosts this carnival every Friday for people to list their five favorite things for the week.

#1 - I have read through the A-n section of the children's picture books at our local library. We discovered this book at the tail end of the An's which is much loved and a frequent requested read by Bookworm1:



To read more about that particular reading journey, visit Reading My Library to see my latest progress.

2. On a book related note (since we're so there) I found THIS book at Goodwill yesterday and am incredibly STOKED about it:



I dove into it immediately. It's screaming VOLUMES at me right now about all sorts of life lessons.

3. One of those lessons which I am learning from this book about Franklin & Winston is concerning friendship in the midst of fire. SO much to say on this point but for now I shall leave it at this poster which I think is totally awesome.



4. Psalm 27:13-14

I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the LORD
in the land of the living.

Wait for the LORD;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the LORD.

Psalm 27:13,14 NIV


5. Tomorrow is a little person's birthday and we have a really fun celebration planned! I'll talk more about that next week but this weekend promises a good deal of celebration. Why!? Because children are a blessing, we LOVE them, and we love to celebrate them in all their little details (and the big details)!

Blessings this weekend,

Carrie

Wonderful fave fives. Those books would just be great to read. I'm looking at your sidebar - the LM Montgomery widget....

Happy Friday, from an Anne Shirley fan :-)

Happy birthday to the little one. It sounds like a fun weekend coming up!

That book from Goodwill sounds awesome. I'll have to see if the library has it.

I love your book project! Happy birthday to the little one!

That sounds like a wonderful book. And what an awesome promise in those verses.

Hope your little one has an extra-special birthday!

Thanks for sharing Psalm 27. It is one of my favorites.

I'm going to be on the lookout for the book Franklin & Winston. I'm all about learning life lessons!

May your little one's birthday be a very special day.

Glad your reading journey is going well. What a fun-looking book #1 is! And #2 looks very intriguing as well. Psalm 27 is one of my favorites. Those closing verses are beautiful.

Have fun celebrating the birthday!

I love the saying at the top of your blog, that would describe me perfectly. I am always getting teased about how many books I read, look at the tab at the top of my blog if you get a chance.

My husband and I went scavenging for used books this week. We regularly hit thrift stores and find fantastic bargains of classics we want to keep. Its fun.

Our local library has a used book store attached to it. I regularly peruse the title and have found many Newbery Awards to add to my collection. Reading through your library? Wow! I'm not sure I will live that long!

Happy Birthday to that certain little one!

Can't wait to hear more about the celebration!

The Franklin and Winston book looks very interesting -- looking forward to more of your thoughts on it.

*I* am hitting a library book sale tomorrow, and my hubby actually talked me into it! (I secretly really wanted to go but due to finances REALLY need the validation to go!)
SO excited!
ROARING!
