Home to Holly Springs by Jan Karon

Having read and loved all of the Mitford books by Jan Karon, I was so happy to hear about her new Father Tim series. This first installment was beautifully written. It was so wonderful to go back in time to read about the characters from Father Tim's past and have them connect so lovingly to his present. Please don't start with this book though! Go back and read the all of the Mitford Series, to acquaint yourself with all of the wonderful characters.

Happy New Year!

The new year is here and I am enthralled once again with the potential of a new beginning. It isn't one of those bigger -than- day, obvious new beginnings, like moving to a new place, starting a new church, or having another baby. It's more subtle, and personal. For me, it is fresh journal pages, a new cross stitch project, a new Bible study, some fitness goals, attention to personal relationships, a closer walk with the Lord, and maybe trying something different.
