We went to the Goodwill the other day, as I was looking for and praying for, clothes for myself. Skirts, tops, things of that nature. I tried on so many tops, but certain parts of my anatomy make it difficult to find things that fit, so I purchased just one blouse. Among the findings, we found all of these books! Once I found out how much, I couldn’t resist adding one more, and then another, and another. Until finally my husband pulled the cart and me away from the book section. Someone had to have sense!
I’m so glad we have these books, and they are tucked away for ‘school’. Basically, during a chosen reading time, I’ll let the children pick on to read for that time, and afterwards, put it away. They are still drooling and chewing books, so I’d like to keep these nice! 😀 Once they are through with this stage, their books will be out where they can reach them whenever they want.
I want to foster a love of reading, the simple pleasure of the written word, and the acknowledged thought. Reading is a gift to be passed down from one generation to the next, and it’s becoming rare to find those who enjoy it so.
I found three skirts that I couldn’t pass up! A cargo jeans one, a sporty light blue one, and a more dressy black one. The purple top is eggplant and looks flattering on me. I love the ruffles and cuffs on the cap sleeves. 😀 I’m desiring to be more feminine lately. To appreciate and celebrate that I was made as a woman, for God’s pleasure. Besides studying the scriptures for my identity in Him, what better way to celebrate, than skirts, and ruffles and beautiful rich colors?!
What a far way I’ve come, from the tomboy stages to now. I have a feeling, that femininity will continue to rest, roost and lodge it’s way into my heart. I’m praying for some shoes next!! And of course…tops. 🙂
The paperback books were $.49 each, the hardbacks $.99 each. The pieces of clothing were $3.49 each.
We spent around $26 for all of this, and I’m pretty pleased with it all!
