Thankful Day 3 - Reads

Going Coastal

Today... I am thankful for books. For the ability to read, for resources at our fingertips, for the bible, bible studies, marriage resources, literature, textbooks, schoolwork, everything. I am crazy about books, and really just can't get enough of them. I just started reading Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, and so far it has surpassed my expectations! I'm also going through The Greatest Gift, a Christmas devotional by Ann Voskamp, sporadically as I prepare my heart for this new season we are entering. And then of course I have my textbooks for school... I actually love those. I am thankful to be with Liberty and to be given a book voucher to cover most of my textbooks out of the school bookstore because of military. Which means, that since essentially shipping is all that's out of pocket, I can keep my books and not sell them back! Whoop! I love having all of my education texts at my fingertips, to cite them for current and past classes, to study up on my future field, to fill my bookcases. I love my books and my bookcases are very important to me. I even have two bookcases full of children's books I received for free! Preparing for my future classroom and whatever else lies ahead! My office is kind of a mess right now so I'm not really going to take pictures of the bookcases or whatnot, but I can post my current reads, which I am so thankful for. Books keep me sane!
