Welcome to First Line Friday hosted by Hoarding Books! How has your week been? I’m not going to lie, my week has been tough. I had to say goodbye to a very dear friend. We’ve been friends for ten years and share lots of memories. I didn’t want to say goodbye, but I really had no other option. It was going to cost thousands of dollars to fix her up! I’m talking about my van (hehe, sorry that was probably kind of on the mean side). Yep, my van died. Well more like rusted so bad it was not drivable. And normal people would be okay with it, but I really loved my van and was just not ready to let go. In addition, this was a huge financial hardship for our family, as my husband’s truck had the same issue two months ago, which resulted in him getting a new vehicle. We were not expecting this at all. We went from zero car payments to two of them in a matter of just a couple of months. But God has a plan, even in this and we’ll just trust in Him (even though my flesh is screaming and crying inside!).
There is a light in the week, however. The latest book in the Baxter Family series by Karen Kingsbury is out. WOOHOO!! Anyone who knows me knows how much I adore her books. I’ve read every single one. I own every single one. I get giddy when it’s time for the new ones to arrive! In This Moment is so much more than a book continuing the Baxter Family drama. It’s actually dealing with a very real topic in our day – a lawsuit regarding having a bible study at school. Bravo Karen for taking on such a moving yet controversial topic!
Today’s First Line is……
