devotion by the ocean

I'm not a reader. I write far more than I'll ever read and that's just a fact. Seriously, I'm your book-a-year-if-you're-lucky girl. Now scripts, that's a different story. I'm beginning to see this shift though, as I finished No One Belongs Here More Than You the other day. Since I only have two more months in this town I have kind of given up the job search & taking up book reading. I figured I may as well relax before I commit myself to an island for who-knows how long. Yes, I understand the irony of that statement but island to me is probably big city to you. {that being said if you need a freelance photographer I'm still very available!) ;)

Despite being a Christian for the last 18 years of my life, I have never picked up a devotional book, can you believe it? Sure, maybe a couples publication like The Love Dare (highly recommended), or several 5 minute a day Bibles but nothing to help me understand it all for just me.

Anyways, better late than never. I am beginning the journey of the devotional and figured making it public would help me keep my promise! I started last week and am on day 3. I choose level easy to ease into. It's pretty quick, I'm done in less than 10 minutes which means that I don't dread it and it doesn't overwhelm me. I know, I'm really not the greatest Christian example but you've got to start somewhere and I've got a feeling this is going to be really good for me.

This is my duo that sits on my windowsill. I found this vintage bible from the 1970's in a military thrift store for $1.00 and kind of fell in love. On the first page there is a little note that reads

To Connie,
May 20th, 1973
Cito & Hilda

....which I love.
It's filled with simply hilariously corny photos of that time period and timely relics. It's my favorite Bible so far.

Speaking of bookworming, I just listed these brand new bookmarks in the shop! Go have a peak ;)
What are some rituals you are trying to keep? Any reading you would recommend?
