Thank you for visiting my spot on the web. If you came here by way of Lysa's blog, then you must want to win some free stuff! Just leave a comment and I will draw one blessed lady's name on Monday. The winner will receive the devotional book Jesus, Day by Day by my favorite Bible teacher, Siesta and mentor, Beth Moore (by the way, she doesn't know me from Adam - or Eve either) and Third Day's Christmas Offerings CD.
Thanks to Lysa for affording me the opportunity to touch your life today.
Now, on to what's on my heart and mind today.
Wednesday night, I finished the book, The Shack by William P. Young. I am still on a spiritual high 36 hours later! If you've read the book and love it like I do, then you need no explanation. If you haven't read it, I urge you to borrow or buy it soon. As a fledgling writer, I am in awe of the author's gift for storytelling.
There may be some who don't happen to like the book and may not agree with my recommendation. I've read reviews and blog-opinions that state the content isn't theologically correct. Most well-grounded students of the Word would probably agree with that statement. However, the dialog, the extraordinarily creative plot, and the well illustrated message of a simple, intimate, real relationship with The Triune God is awe-inspiring. After finishing the book, I went to the author's blog, in which he tells us that he never intended to publish this story. It was actually written for his children - so that he could illustrate how simple our relationship with God really should be. Only after his friends' persistent "persuasion," did he consider publication.
It really is a terrific read! I hope you will enjoy it.
