De-Cluttering my life: Books

In an effort to get rid of clutter, I am beginning a winter project of getting rid of things we don't need/want anymore. Tonight, I started with books. I have to tell you that this is NOT easy for me since I love books, but since I have very little time to read anymore, and other people might get more use out of them, I started sorting. I originally was going to just take them to Half Price Books and sell them there, but before I do that, I wanted to give my FB friends and blog readers (all 3 of you..haha) first chance at getting some books if you would like them. Of course, the money that we make will go directly to our adoption. These books are not listed in ANY kind of order, but I did try to put them together if the books were by the same author or in a series. I have listed the books by title and then gave the copyright date and ISBN if there was one listed.

So you may be wondering how much these books are. Well, that's up to you. Make an offer on them and we'll probably take it. If I will be shipping them to you, I will need you to pay for the shipping, but I will ship them as cheaply as possible. If you would like to buy one/some, either leave a comment as to what your offer is and what you want or send me an email at with "Book Order" in the title so I look at it quickly. I am also posting these on and we will be selling them on a first come, first served basis. Tonight I cleaned off 4 shelves and these are the books that we are getting rid of:

The Bookshelf for boys and girls volume 1: Nursery Favorites Old and New, 1955
The Bookshelf for boys and girls volume 2: Happy Hours in Storyland, 1955
The Bookshelf for boys and girls volume 3: Folk and Fairy Tales, 1955

Today I Kissed an Angel

Today I kissed an angel. I knew it from the start. The first time my angel smiled at me; I gave away my heart.

Today I kissed an angel; This angel child of mine. Though not of my creation, My child by God's design.

Today I kissed an angel. My heart is dancing wild; Our family, by a miracle; Blessed by our angel child.

All I Really Want by Steven Curtis Chapman
