Monday Morning Coffee Chat

It's Monday! 
Don't forget to be awesome!

I watched the best movie on TCM a few nights ago,  In This Our Life starring Bette Davis and Olivia DeHaviland.  Olivia, so beautiful, and Bette, not so beautiful, in my opinion anyway.  I never thought that she was attractive but she was a great actress.  I can't recall a movie she was in that I didn't like.

A young woman dumps her fiancée and runs off with her sister's husband. They marry, settle in Baltimore, and Stanley ultimately drives Peter to drink and suicide. She returns home to Richmond only to learn that her sister Roy and old flame Craig have fallen in love and plan to marry. The jealous and selfish Stanley (Bette Davis) attempts to win back Craig's affections, but her true character is revealed when, rather than take the rap herself, she attempts to pin a hit and run accident on the young black clerk who works in Craig's law office.

I started a new book over the weekend.  When Jesus Wept by Bodie and Brock Thoene.  I've read these authors before and have always enjoyed their books.

When Jesus Wept by bestselling authors Bodie and Brock Thoene, unfolds the turbulent times in Judea during Jesus' ministry, centering on the friendship between Jesus and Lazarus. With rich insights from vineyard owners and vine dressers, the Thoenes explore the metaphor of Jesus as the True Vine, harvesting the ancient secrets found in the Old Testament.

Staying in out of the heat has made my days long and lazy.  I've read, crafted and colored ~ and yes, I've taken a few naps. 

A Little Trivia!

Did you know....
America's first Bible was not English, it was the language of the Algonquin Indian.  John Eliot, colonial pastor and "apostle to the Indians," published his Algonquin Bible in 1662.  At that time, law required that all English Bibles be printed in England.

Come join me on the porch,
we'll sit and chat a while!

Until Next Time
Praising God from Whom all Blessings Flow!


  1. Oh what a pretty porch...I could sit there all day. I think my favorite Bette Davis movie is Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, what a good actress she was. ANYWAYS, the book looks good and hope you will talk about it when your finished. Have a beautiful day.

  2. Oh how I miss having a front porch! Memories of good times. Bette Davis was not beautiful, but you are right that she was a great actress! I've never seen that movie. Your book sounds really good. I'll have to look it up on Amazon. Thanks for the reviews! Hugs for a blessed week ahead!

  3. Bette Davis was so unlikable in most everything she played in...which, I guess, is what made her a great actress. Being mean paid off for her. ;-) Love that porch...wowsers...I could sit there and chat with you well into the night, my Friend. HOPE you have a great Monday.

    1. Stopped by to see if you had posted this Tuesday morning and saw that awesome sweet!

  4. I have that book and just couldn't get into it. I'm interested to see what you think. I love your header! Have a blessed day.

  5. Good evening, Mary! Your blog is looking mighty pretty, my friend :)

    The books you're reading certainly sounds interesting as does the old film with Bette Davis.

    Have a glorious week! Hugs!

  6. Wow! What a movie plot! Love Olivia D. and appreciate Bette D. as an actress. My husband loves to watch the old Queen Elizabeth movies with Bette D. as the Queen, and Olivia is in one of those as well. Love the contrast between good and bad, dark and light.The Jesus Wept book sounds good too. I must look that up and see if it is in our local library. Yes, summertime is a good time to stay indoors out of the heat and enjoy a good book or old movie. I've done a lot of that this summer...and am trying to get back into the swing of writing and reading my friend's blogs. Thank you for having so many excellent things to read. You are a blessing.
