Here is another installment of our weekly favorite’s from the local library. I’m sorry the blog updates have been few and far between! I had the stomach flu, then passed it along to Grant (sorry, bud). Gus is teething, and any other spare second has been spent with my dad. I was grateful to find this prayer that helps sum up my heart right now:
I come before you
as an empty vessel that needs filling.
I am overcome with weariness and fatigue
both of body and spirit.
Let me take this as a sign from myself
that I must slow down.
Teach me how to serve you
with a less hectic schedule
and a more sheltered life.
Let me look to you,
as my Light, Guide, and Exemplar,
holding my hand and leading me on.
Carrying my burden by my side.
The one thing we did manage was a quick trip to the library. Here are our weekly picks for this week!

Thank you so much for taking time out of your schedule to list your book findings. I have one from last weeks list waiting at my library for me to pick up. 🙂 Hope you are feeling better and prayers to you, your family and Dad during this time. Dads are amazing people and I miss mine dearly.
