unknown prize // behind the locked door

If you follow my sister Sarah's blog - you already know that I got on the radio a little over a week ago. I had been listening to everyone on the radio recently and they were winning Brandon Heath and Josh Wilson CDs. I just had to get on there too! I was the random 5th caller and had to answer these 3 questions and say if they were Bible or NOT. I was stumped on the 2nd question though.. It was in Galatians apparently, but I'm serious, the version of the Bible that they were using made it sound so not Biblical. They were talking about being proud in yourself. I was like uhh..no, that's not Bible. :P

 And, in all that, I didn't hear which CD I had won!! My mind went blank..and all I could remember was "J ----, who's song is #2 top in the nation right now." I was like, ohh cool! O.o I then later talked with my friend, Aliyah, about it all. She then listed all the "J" names and bands she knew. Her last one was "Jordan Felix" -- and she was right!! :D

 Our library has a storage room. You see, its VERY old.. it's like the old post offices you see around. All made in glorious marble and stone. It's majestic. I always dream of exploring the storage room - and discovering the hidden stories. And, a few days ago, I got to! The librarian had to get a book down there for me - please tell me why Jane Eyre is in STORAGE?! - and I asked if I could go down too. I was sooo happy when the reply was "oh sure!". My dreams made the place a lot better..but the books are still great. ;)

Ever been on the radio?
Does your library have a storage room??

  1. Hey Juj! You've got to listen to Jordan Feliz's song 'The River'! It's so good! No, I've never been on the radio but Mom has and maybe Leah. We don't go to the library anymore and I don't know if the one we used to go to had a storage room. Your library sounds really cool! How old is it?
    In sisterly love,

    2. I know! So much pressure on the radio! ;) We do buy kids books at a thrift store near us. I haven't really looked at the books for my age though. We own lots of books though that I have not even read yet! :) Oh, cool!! 102 years old! There is a library near us that I would like to go to sometime. It looks historic from the outside view! :)

  2. Jane Eyre was in storage!?!? Thats crazy! I totally covet your Bleak House by Charles Dickens in that picture!^^^ I'm in love with Charles Dickens!
    Thats so cool that you got to be on the radio! Ive never called in or anything, but the Christian station I listen to asks really random questions like "What is an item that you don't like that you wish you could burn?" Totally weird right? But I've never got the guts to actually call in!:)

  3. Oh, Jordan Feliz is the best!! :D Congrats on winning the CD. ;) (But seriously, no Josh Wilson?! Grrr.) I only know his song The River but it is soooo good. I play the lyric video online all. the. time. (BTW, I got a Spotify account last night after hearing about it on your last post...it is soooo much better and more fun than Pandora!)
    I was about to say I've never been on the radio, but I just remembered that when I was about eight my family would listen to this radio show that played old songs from the 70's, and I called in to request a song one time. It was fun! :)
    That is SOOO cool that you got to go into your library's storage room! I bet it looked really neat inside. Our library does have a pretty big storage room, and it is open to the public at the twice-a-year(?) book sale. (They sell books in that room, pretty cool.)

    1. Thanks! - lol, I know it.. oh well. ;) Oh, great! I love Spotify.. except for the whole shuffle play thing. I'm like, there is no way I'm going to spend $100 dollars for a year of music! :P Ohh, how fun. :D Oooohhh you really get to BUY books?! I would love that :D :D

  4. I knew Jane Eyre was an old book, but it's a classic! It's too famous to be in storage. I recently finished Jane Eyre. I really enjoyed it, but now I have to find a new classic to read. Have you ever watched the movie they made of Jane Eyre?I watched it before reading the book. It's a really good movie!

    1. I completely agree! It's seriously such an amazing story.. the characters are beautiful. It's sad that it's stuck down there. ;) Oh yes! I have watched two different versions and LOVED them both!! <3 Which version did you see? :)

  5. Love Christian Radio nowadays! I love Josh Wilson as well- have youu heard his song, "That Was Then, This is Now"? Super good! Never heard of Jordan Feliz. What type of radio station do you listen to? Modern christian, classical, etc? O yes, I LOVE libraries! Does your library have book sales? Ours has one once a month. Hard backs are 50 cents and paper backs are 25 cents. So awesome! Have any other Fave. singers?

    1. Oh gosh yes!! I could sing the whole song to you by memory!! ;) I listen to Christian Contemporary music on our Christian radio stations. I believe we have 4 or 5.. and then classical. I really don't like anything else. I do love jazz though. :) Our library does have book sales! But surprisingly, I've never found anything I've really liked.. :P
