1. Fill in your memories of 2008.

2. Link my blog to yours.

3. Tag others, and comment on their blogs so they know they've been tagged.

I was tagged by Ana and Amy!

~A good book I read~
The Curate's Awakening by George MacDonald

~A great film/movie I watched~
Elizabeth Gaskell's Wives and Daughters (BBC) EXCELLENT!!!!! ***** Can't get much better than that! :-D

~A new place I visited~
the Reynolds' house! :-) We didn't really travel much this year... but hopefully this next year we will! :-D

~An inspiring verse or quote I read~
"Not to advance in the spiritual life is to go back." -Brother Lawrence

~A new skill I acquired~
some kitchen skills (limited) :-)

~A lesson I learned~
Though the world may seem to be in chaos, God is in control and is working out everything for His glory and our good.

~A moment I will always remember~
our visit with the Maurers, a beautiful walk at the lake... lots! But the sweetest ones are kept deep inside the heart... :-)

I tag Leahna, Miss S. , and Tory. I would tag Leah except Ana beat me to it! :-D
