CSotP Blog Tour #10 // Snow!

So, about a year and a half ago, around the time I started reading blogs, I stumbled upon a book review blog which is now called A Slightly Nerdy Bookworm. I really enjoyed her reviews over the next months, because for one thing, she gave such a thorough job of going through the books that I would know if they would be the kind I would read or not. 
I thought it would be really cool if she would review my book, even though I knew she didn’t normally read books for that age group. She agreed, much to my delight! So, head on over to her blog for a review, a chance to win a prize and to see what my top five books were as a kid. It was a whole lot of fun to put this post together, so don’t miss out on it! (Check out the Blog Tour Schedule here.)

On Sunday after church my bro needed to stop in town for something and since I was with him, I got to stop in town as well. I don’t go there very often, normally I’m at home or traversing far places, but when I am there, I have fun just looking around. It’s really a charming place.

Therefore, I thought I’d take a few pictures for y’all, especially since it was snowing and totally beautiful. (Are any of you noticing a trend here? Snow, for me, equals beautiful.) And now because snow is so amazing, I have decided to share some verses with all y’all about it. 😉

His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: Matthew 28:3 

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. Isaiah 1:18 

While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease. Genesis 8:22 

For he saith to the snow, Fall thou on the earth; Likewise to the shower of rain, And to the showers of his mighty rain. Job 37:6


And then I got back in the car with freezing feet. 🙂

What were some of your favorite books as a child?

12-12-12

Do y’all know what today is? 
It’s 12-12-12
That’s pretty impressive, you know. And really cool. 
I just had to do a post today, so it would say 12-12-12.
But now that I think of it, I remember that my clock is wrong for my blog, so maybe it just might already think tomorrow is here. That would be a bummer, but oh well, it is still 12-12-12.
My sister took this ^ picture and then let me use it because I didn’t get such a great one on my phone…
I was just outside, watching the extremely clear night sky. Not a cloud in sight. The air was crisp and clean. And me oh my, the stars! Breathtaking as normal. 
I like to swing after dark, so I was swinging (we have swings here where I live), and I started seeing shooting stars. A lot of them. So I went and laid down, in the heavy frosted grass, and watched them. 
Oh, so beautiful! I wanted to stay out longer, but even though I was bundled up, I know it’s not too smart of an idea to lay out on the ground in the middle of December, so I came back in. 
Seriously peoples, you should look at the stars more! 
Have a totally great day!
A picture of me laying out in the grass, stargazing. Really, it is.
