This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every moring: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion saith my soul: therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for Him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD. Lamentations 3: 21-26

Family Read Alouds 2007

Some were easy, some challenging. Some were happy, some sad, some tense. "Reading" somtimes included audio books when there was a lot of car time. There were bedtime stories, there were shoved in between activities. Sometimes we did well, sometimes we stalled out. But all wereloved.

We did twenty-eight read alouds for 2007. My hope for 2008 is that we can do more. There is a special time for families when they read together.
