Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! I don’t know about you, but this week took me by storm. I’ve reached the weekend flopped on my back and panting, just relieved to have made it through relatively unscathed, if rather brain-scrambled. But praise God for his blessings amidst it all!
As dramatic as all of that sounds, we are okay. We’ve just had a couple of things thrown at us all at once, and let me tell you, the strain of adulting is real! 😩 But it’s school holidays here AND a long weekend, and I’m ever so thankful that I have a God whose mercies are new every morning. And even every hour…
And now, I think I deserve to sit down and read a book. Don’t you?
