One of my favorite blogs is Chatting at the Sky. I'm not exaggerating when I say I want to "star" or link to everything Emily posts. Her blog mostly focuses on two concepts: living life in light of God's grace, and finding the artist within and setting her free. Needless to say, those are currently major guideposts in my own life, so I really benefit from her thoughts.
I pre-ordered Emily's book, Grace For The Good Girl, and was thrilled to find it in my mailbox yesterday. I am definitely the target audience for this book and can't wait to start reading and highlighting. I admire her for having the courage to share the message God placed in her heart, even though she didn't feel "qualified" to do it. I hope that someday, I'll have the guts and the right words to do the same.
In other, around-the-house news, it was Gandalf's birthday yesterday. He turned nine. :)
And I finally found a place for my house's nameplate! It'll be replaced soon by a fall wreath I'm planning to make, but I'm glad to have it up temporarily.
And I'm seriously considering painting all my hallway picture frames white, a la Young House Love. My house is otherwise devoid of black, and I feel like it makes the hall seem darker. But I can't decide. Thoughts?
