Defunct computer? Defunct Life? I am having to say Goodbye to blogland. Our computer has gone AWOL...for the last time. We may be up and running again one day. xoxo

Review: The Road to Becoming

           `The Road to Becoming` is a Christian Living non-fiction book written by author Jenny Simmons (lead singer of Addison Road).  Jenny tells you how to become whole from a position of unraveling. This book is intended for the bewildered and broken.
              Jenny Simmons relives her own life in this book and I enjoyed listening to songs mentioned in the book, especially the songs by Patsy Cline and Michael W. Smith. Perhaps from different genres, but I enjoyed them. I think I realized more than ever how much musicians go through just so the listeners may enjoy the show.
             Jenny taught me that nothing is so minute that its passing would not be grieved. I would recommend this book to someone who is in the doldrums of life.

What's On Your Nightstand

Five Minutes for Books hosts `What's On Your Nightstand` every fourth Tuesday of each month. Where readers share what they have read, what they are reading and what they plan to read for the next month.

Well, this has been a rough few months, surprising I read anything or even published anything. First, I was in the hospital, next hubby has been laid off for (3) months due to medical reasons, then lightening struck our modem, and then our router went out (2) days after the warranty guarantee. I have unavoidably learned how to schedule posts and learned more tricks about my tablet. Oh, the tire blew out, while our son was driving, an hour away. He learned how to change a tire and he had to change it with the smaller size spare. That was probably the longest hour he's seen.

Oh my, weren't we talking about books? Tally-ho...
