If you are like me, spring fever is about at breaking point in this winter weather! On the East Coast where I live we have lost power, internet, school days, and for some of us, our sanity in all this snow! But one advantage of being snowed in is that you have more time for other times that maybe you've wanted to do but life just wouldn't allow before. I decided inclement weather is a good excuse to start a new habit: poetry reading. This is a list of suggestions from Dr. Rosalie De Rosset at Moody Bible Institute, who leads a book club on Midday Connection. Cozy up and enjoy!
