Through Rah Rah's Lens: Day 4

My Must have item.....
I have had many ideas for this post. My initial thought (and my husbands) was my camera. Sure it goes with me EVERYWHERE and I use it ALL THE TIME, but when I thought about it, I thought it was too obvious. I guess you know that my camera goes with me everywhere, most of my blog post have at least 1 picture!
So I though some more... Music was the next thing I thought of. I love listening to music! I had some really good ideas for pictures for that "must have item", but the longer I thought about it, The more I realized that neither of those were my must have items!
If you know me very well, you know that in my purse there is ALWAYS a book (right now there are 3, but who is counting). Those books go with me EVERYWHERE! You never know when you will have time to sit down and read a good book! I have ALWAYS Loved books! The highlight of my week in grade school was getting a book order. I would spend hours reading the descriptions and deciding which ones I HAD TO HAVE! Going to a books store was even better! I could actually pick them up and look at the books there! I have spent so much money on books over the years! So, here is my must have item... well, items.

Some of my favorite children's books.
Not A Box & Not A Stick By Antoinette Portis
Mary Had A Little Jam By Bruce Lansky
Sam, Bangs, & Moonshine By Evaline Ness
The Frog On Robert's Head By David Cleveland
Knuffle Bunny & Knuffle Bunny Too By Mo Wilems
The Sunflower Garden By Janice May Udry

Some of my other favorites on one of my many bookshelves.

My Favorite Series growing up: The Jennie McGrady Mysteries By Patricia Rushford
These are great Christan mystery novels for middle school aged kids!

Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events...
Another one of my favorites!

Some of the best books I have ever read:
Thorn in My Heart
Fair Is The Rose
Whence Came a Prince
& Grace in Thine Eyes
All by Liz Curtis Higgs

All of these books are my "favorites" I know,
I'm pathetic! I couldn't pick just one!
But, this last book is my all time favorite.
It is so very special to me!
My husband gave it to me the day we got married.
It is a wonderful treasure.
Not just because it came from Matthew,
but because it is the Word of God!

My Bible.

Out of all those children's books, Knuffle Bunny is the only one I've ever read. I think Tara brought it home from the school library. The others sound really great too!!

You've always been my little book worm!
I'm glad that your BIBLE is still your favorite!
