90. A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers from My Shelfari "I Plan to Read" Shelf

90. Read at least 30 books from my "I Plan To Read" Shelf

I don't know that I am going to do a full review of each book that I read, but I will at least post my favorite excerpt from each. This book A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers is the first book that I have read for my 101 project from my "I Plan To Read" Shelf, and it was absolutely fantastic. A couple of other Shelfari readers have given their comments here, and I have to say that for the most part, I agree with them. The beginning has a lot of historical information that I found fascinating, but I can see how some may have found it difficult to get into. However, if you decide to read this book, and do find that section a bit tedious, be sure to press on because the remainder of the book is SOOOOOOOO worth it!

I have always loved Francine Rivers's work. The first book of hers that I read was Redeeming Love, and this series is every bit as powerful! I have been so inspired by Hadassah's (main character) love for Christ and servant's heart! Here's one of my favorite passages:

". . . He looked at Hadassah sleeping peacefully and knew that if he asked, she would open herself to him. Rather than remain a sealed jar, she sought only to pour herself out to others. Everything she did mirrored her faith. It was as though every waking hour of every day she was devoted to pleasing her god by serving others. This god that she worshipped consumed her. It didn't ask for a brief visit to a temple, or a small votive offering of food or coin, or a few prayers every now and then. This god wanted all of her.

And what did she get from him? What reward had she received for her devotion? SHe was a slave. She had no possessions, no rights, no protection other than what her owners gave her. She couldn't even marry without her master's permission. Her life depended on the goodwill of her owners, for she could be killed for any or no reason at all. She received one small coin a day from his father, and that she frequently gave away.

He remembered the peace on her face as she had stood with her face to the wind. Peace . . . and joy. She was a slave and yet she seemed to possess a sense of freedom he had never felt . . . "

1. The 5:16 Club

“I earnestly recommend that it be in the early morning, unless there are some extenuating circumstances. Entering the day without a serious meeting with God, over his Word and in prayer, is like entering the battle without tending to your weapons. The human heart does not replenish itself with sleep. The body does, but not the heart. We replenish our hearts not with sleep, but with the Word of God and prayer.”

John Piper


Sarah Mae at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee started the 5AM Club. The purpose of our little group is to intentionally set aside a time every day, first thing in the morning, to spend some quality time with the Lord. Sarah Mae linked to girl talk whose "Habits of Highly Effective Women" begin with she rises early. Sarah Mae changed our chapter of the club to the 5:16 club when she found this verse:

Ephesians 5:16
making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil

Getting up at 5:16AM every morning to read my Bible and pray is one way that I intend to "make the mmost of every opportunity." And the reason that I put on my goal "for 21 days straight" is because they say that in order to make something a habit, you have to do it every day for 21 days.

Lisa over at Stop and Smell the Chocolates posted the following poem in one of her Motivate Me Monday posts, and I think it is a very appropriate explantion of what I hope to gain from these times.

"In the early morning hours,
'Twixt the night and day,
While from earth the darkness passes
Silently away;

Then it's sweet to talk with Jesus
In your bedroom still--
For the coming day and duties
Ask to know His will.

Then He'll lead the way before you,
Laying mountains low;
Making desert places blossom,
Sweet'ning sorrow's flow.

Do you want a life of triumph,
Victory all the way?
Then put God in the beginning
Of each coming day."

(From Charles E Cowman Devotionals - Streams in the Desert)

45-48. My Husband Rocks!

In a time when nothing is more certain than change, the commitment of two people to one another has become difficult and rare. Yet, by its scarcity, the beauty and value of this exchange have only been enhanced.
~Robert Sexton~

Marriage is truly a beautiful thing. Easy? Definitely not. Fun? Not always, but often. Worth it? Every minute! However, in today's culture marriage has gotten a bad rap. Married couples in movies and on television are often depicted as miserable and mutually disrespectful. In break rooms across the world one can find co-workers engaging in ritual "spouse bashing." And more and more people have simply stopped believing that marriage is of any value at all.

Being a newlywed myself, I've honestly been a little discouraged by the negative connotation marriage is receiving. Until I found a company that's doing something about it!

That company is From*me Tees! You can get to their website by clicking on that link, or the button in my sidebar. Below is a snippet from the "About Us" section of their website.

"From*me Tees was started by a married couple who knows what it is to work through hard stuff and yet stay together and stay committed through it all. One of the great and wonderful mysteries of life is that loving each other in action--what we do and say--produces romance. Everything in our culture today teaches the opposite, that romance turns into love, but nothing could be further from the truth. Love is a choice and we decide how we're going to treat each other in the good and in the not-so-good times. What a hope-giving reality that a strong relationship can be built, simply by changing how we interact with our spouse.

Marriage was created to be a blessing and a little kindness and respect goes a long way. Accept the fact that your spouse isn't perfect and then start taking notice of all the good things they bring to the table! Pretty soon you can train your mind to be grateful for who they are as opposed to feeling disappointed about who they are not. When you allow yourself to believe that your spouse rocks, you will free yourself from the downward spiral of self-pity, disappointment, and even dispair. The key is to change yourself! And you'll be surprised at the positive affect it has on the one you choose to love...and you!" source

I was so excited and inspired when I found their website (thank you An Island Life) and read their mission statement! This is exactly what I've been looking for and trying to create in my marriage! Marriage should be fun and happy and wonderful, and we should look at it in a positive light! (That being said, I am fully aware and willing to put in the work and commitment it takes to create a lasting marriage, but that doesn't have to be a drudge or a chore, either!) And I decided that I am going to join them in putting marriage in a positive light! I want my husband to feel loved and respected by me, and I want to encourage others in this as well!

Thus ~ "my husband rocks" Fridays ~ is born!

Every Friday, I post a story, or photo, or quote about how and why my husband rocks! on my main blog page the great adventure. And I invite you to do the same!

"No husband is perfect and it doesn’t really matter. What matters is how I set myself up to think about him. If I focus on his failures, his annoyances, or ways in which I’ve felt hurt by him, then I will interact with him as a hurt and frustrated and disappointed wife. That makes for miserable living for me and my husband and those around us. But if I focus on his strengths, his potential, and the ways in which I feel blessed by him, then I will interact with him as a forgiving, blessed, and contented wife. And there’s no greater need a man has than to feel respected by his wife. If he feels like all he does is hurt, disappoint, and frustrate, then the same atmosphere and the same actions will be perpetuated. But if he feels that his wife can be happy and responsive regardless of his shortcomings, he feels respected and empowered. Then a positive atmosphere is perpetuated and actions, once destructive, can improve in an environment that is rich for
cultivation and growth into deepened respect and intimacy." (from the From*me Tees Mission Reflection)

If you'd like to join me in ~"my husband rocks" Fridays~ every Friday, write a post proclaiming to the world why your husband (or wife, or husband-to-be, or wife-to-be) ROCKS!, then come back here and comment with the permalink to your post, and I will add you the ~My Husband Rocks! ~ blogroll!

And as an added bonus . . . . if you make a From*me Tees purchase (of at least two items) on Fridays as part of this "carnival," From*me Tees has generously offered to refund your shipping charges if you mention my blog and the "my husband rocks Fridays carnival" during checkout at the "how did you hear about us" reply link!

65. Project 365

Project 365

Tips on How to Do It
Here are six tips on how to create your own Project 365:

1. Bring Your Camera Everywhere
Yes, everywhere. Get in the habit. Grocery stores, restaurants, parties, work, and school. Going to a movie theatre? Snap a pic of the flick with your phone–there are photo-ops everywhere. If you have one of those tiny tiny cameras, you have no excuse not to have it in your pocket all the time. And if you don’t? Camera phones are a great substitute.

2. Make Posting Easy
You can install blog software like Movable Type or Wordpress on your own site and create an entry for each photo, but for true ease of use, try a photo sharing site. Flickr will let you post a week’s worth of photos in 2 minutes flat, and fotolog and Photoblog.com are geared toward a photo-a-day workflow. Making it fast and easy means you’re much more likely to do it.

3. Vary Your Themes
Try to capture the day’s events in a single photo. Perform photographic experiments. Take a photo of someone new you meet, something you ate for the first time, or something you just learned how to do. Take a photo of something that made you smile. And don’t forget to take a photo of yourself at least once a month so you can remember how you’ve changed, too.

4. Tell a Story
Use your blog entry, or your photo description, to explain what’s going on in each day’s photograph. How good did that dinner taste? What made you want to take a photo of that stranger? It’ll help you remember down the road, and it gives friends following along a better appreciation of why you took the photo you did. You don’t need to write a lot, just enough to add some color.

5. Don’t Stop, No Matter What
This is perhaps the most important tip of all. You will get tired of taking a photo every single day. Some days, you will consider giving up. Don’t. The end result is worth the effort. Remind yourself why you wanted to do it in first place.

There will be times you’ll think there’s nothing interesting left to take a photo of, and times you’ll think you didn’t do anything exciting enough to take a photo of. There’s always a great photo to be made.

Get out of the house and take a walk. Or stay inside and look around. Take a photo of something important to you. Take a photo of the inside of your house so you can see how your taste has changed over the years. Take a photo of anything, just don’t stop.

N.b. It helps if you’ve told your friends about the project and asked them to follow along. Their encouragement will keep you going!

6. Post early, post often
Plan on going through and posting your photos at least once a week so you don’t get backlogged and feel overwhelmed. Ideally, post every day or two. Again, spend the time up front to make sure it’s quick and easy to post. It’ll make all the difference.

I will be posting my shots here.
