Congratulations to a friend and fellow member of  The Word Guild , Ann Voskamp. Her first book, One Thousand Gifts: A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, released on Monday to incredible sales figures. On Number 4 on Hot New Releases in Books, Number 8 in Religion and Spirituality, and Number 13 on the Top 100 Books.

It does not release on until February 1, but it's rapidly rising there to #53 in Top 100 Books.

I read about the release yesterday, on my friend Marilyn’s blog and went right over to order a couple of copies through the link there to (In) Courage, where Dayspring has a time limited special offer. I love that there you can sponsor an additional book for anyone who wants the book and can't afford it. That sounds just like the Kingdom family.

Ann is the blogger whom I once tried to nominate for an award. She is so not into awards that she told all of her readers (over a thousand a day at that time) to vote for the blog of the dear lady who nominated her--and many of them went right over and voted for Whatever He Says. Well, God is using her beautiful words and sending them out to bless many.

Just Joy!

Our family has a standing date for Sunday dinner on the first Sunday of every month. Not that we don't see each other at any other time, but we all know that particular Sunday is pretty much for sure--and I look forward to it so much--the front door bursting open and our house being filled once more with the voices and vibrancy of six grandchildren and their parents. 

This week Spero, Brenda's new Australian Shepherd puppy came too, and met his extended family, leaving Molson at home to have a rest! He was duly adored by all of us.

He came with a dazzling array of toys and is proving a fast learner, already sitting on command and responding to Tori's training. I was so impressed at her technique of quickly rewarding a turnaround from any slight naughtiness with praise for "good sitting," or "good" any other desirable behaviour! 

Tippy had her hair cut stunningly and bravely short the day before; making a statement about who she is as a unique individual, o…

The Secret Adventures of Susan's Scottish Scarf

By Belinda (with a lot of help from Susan :))
I was saying goodnight to her at the front door this week when she told me. There was apparently more to the scarf around her neck than I knew. 
The scarf had been a gift from me for Susan's birthday on Tuesday December 18th. It had been her 60th; and that day I had treated her to lunch to celebrate. 
We met at a tiny restaurant, Port Soiree, in Schomberg,near her office. It was a restaurant neither of us had been to before and it turned out to be a gem, with artsy ambiance, amazing food, wonderful service and modest pricing. In other words, it was perfect!
