shout for joy ...

The desert and the
parched land will be glad;
the wilderness will rejoice
and blossom.
Like the crocus, it will
burst into bloom;
it will rejoice greatly and
shout for joy.
The glory of Lebanon will
be given to it,
the splendor of Carmel
and Sharon;
they will see the glory of
the LORD,
the splendor of our God.
Isaiah 35 (1-2) NIV

relax and read

Why do we love books clubs?  The reasons we love book clubs are as varied as members. As for me, I enjoy rich discussions as we dig into each book.
This month's book

I think clubs have an appeal for women as we strive for work and life balance. Our club offers women a space to breathe deeply, relax and reconnect with friends. As women we spin so many plates in our lives. As we spin each plate, we try to keep everything from spinning out of control.  Reading allows us to slow down.

I agree with Nathan Heller’s when he states in his online piece, Book Clubs Why do we love them so much? Is it the zucchini bread?  …“Book clubs are one effort to set up community in the landscape. They are our bid to stay on the same page across the blur of modern life.”

Most of all I agree with what C.H. Spurgeon said,  “Visit many good books but live in the Bible.” C.H. Spurgeon

This month each member of the the S.I.S.T.E.R.S. Book Club donated two handmade blankets for the Linus Project. Here is the link for the organization Linus 
This organization provide blankets for children in need.  

This blanket  is sure to comfort a child.
