Randomness Friday: Preach It, Sister! (Literally)

(Thanks Libby!)

Welcome one and all to Randomness Friday! I just love doing these- pure randomness is a great way to end a week.

So this was my first "full" week of school. Really, it comes full blast next week, but it's nice to get used to it bit by bit.

I'd like to thank all 97 followers- three more and we have 100! How cool is that? Thank you all so much. You're the reason I blog.

So the other day I was talking to my mother about my nose. (I know, it sounds so weird)And my toddler sister ending up preaching to me! She's been in the USA for a year and a half now, and she's learned so much English in that short time. I was pretty shocked when she started "preaching" to me!

Me: My nose is crooked! It looks like I hurt it or broke it or something. Did I ever do something when I was little?

Mom: No, and your nose is not crooked.

Lil' Sis: *walks up to me, pointing at me*

Me: *stares down with amused expression*

Lil' Sis: *awed voice* Who make flower, and earth, and tree?

Me: You tell me, Lil' Sis.

Lil' Sis: *awed voice* God... He make you all face. He make nose!

Me: *looks at Mom in shock* My little sister just preached to me!

Mom: *laughs*

So, you can see, God can use anyone to tell you a message. Isn't that awesome?

So, as for the future of AGoMC posts, I'm thinking of doing more serious ones. Yes, fun posts are... well, fun. But it's good to get some substance in A Girl of Many Colors. I hope to start writing as soon as I get the chance to purchase a word processor (MS word) and get my thoughts more organized. It's a little difficult to get everything in order on the blogger form, though it is helpful.
"No Matter What" by Kerrie Roberts. This is one A-mazing song, y'all.


So I've been looking for some good books to read. Christian fiction- any kind. I love all types of clean fiction. Do y'all have any recommendations?

Have a blessed weekend and I'll "see" you on Monday!

Amazing Christian fiction is kinda up my Alley...
Anything that Ted Dekker writes is going to be amazing.
I just finished reading the "echoes from the edge" series by Bryan Davis and that was AMAZING>
Travis Thrasher writes really good books.
Frank Peretti.
If you like stuff a little less intense, I just read a book called Angle song that was good.

That was soooo cute/sweet.

The Oracles of Fire and Dragons in Our Midst series by Bryan Davis are really good. They have a large age appeal, and are fantastic for building faith or just reveling in God's wonder. It's a modern fantasy, and it's fantastic! I couldn't put the books down!

Thanks for the suggestions all! Yes, Lil' Sis was adopted from India, and she fits in in so many ways. We're blessed to have her in our family. She certainly makes the days more interesting. :)

Hmmm, try Jeffrey Overstreet. He is very crafty and artistic in his writing. I like it a lot!
