This and That

I'm reading a good book. It started out a little slow. Then it sped up. Next, it seemed to get silly. Finally after reading one third of the book, it became more thought provoking. Now I'm deeply engrossed.

I asked God to read the book with me. I felt this was appropriate, as He is mentioned in the book. I wonder if God enjoys reading fiction about himself? I'm sure He is amused by it.

The book is "The Shack".

I'm enjoying it immensely. And I think it will help me as I walk through this unknown road with my son.

Speaking of my son, I have been living in dread of Sunday. That's his deadline for getting a job "or else". I didn't want to follow through on the "or else"--but I knew I must.

So after many reminders to him--throughout the week--of what might happen to him....today he made a call. Then he came to us and said he had a job interview on Monday.

So we are giving him an extension on the "or else".

I am so relieved that I don't have to turn him out on Sunday.

Thank you so much Lord.

Change of topic.

It has been hot here in Southern California. I'm wearing shorts right now, and it's 9:00 p.m. Yet it's getting a little cooler in the morning and at night (but not much). I'm looking forward to fall...and also to rain. We are in a severe drought here.

Goodbye for now. My younger son has been patiently waiting to use the computer. (He and his brother's computer is down)

(Yes...I have the scripture verse on the computer. (I'm referring to a previous post) My oldest son has had his friends in here, using the computer. Now they all see the verse. "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5,6)

I have been wondering about Corey and you and how the day has gone. I'll be anxious to hear about tomorrow! And will pray.

Everybody is reading The Shack and tells me I must read it. My sis has it and is reading it slowly. I will read it when she is finished. I hear so many different opinions - mostly positive.

Sharon,
My heart goes out to you. We are going through a new valley with our oldest lately as well. My husband and he say such hurtful things to each other. It breaks my heart... I will pray for you, Corey, your husband, and your family overall. May God not only read The Shack with you, but may He bless you through it.
I just finished reading it. It is so interesting...I had all of the same feelings as I started the book. I'm glad I stuck with it. I think you will be too.
Blessings,
Michelle

The Shack is a wonderful, thought provoking book I wish everyone would read. I posted about it and gave away a copy on a drawing for my 400th post. Glad you are reading it.
