Is my life perfect? Nope, but I truly live a blessed life. You can almost always find me in some kind of Bible study and also reading some kind of Christian fiction. I'm not that picky. I've been an avid reader my whole life. That part of me never seems to change! Lots of other things have changed now that I've reached my 40's.....but we'll go there at a later date!
I just finished reading a really interesting detective story called Back on Murder, by J. Mark Bertrand. It was a very thought-provoking book about a police officer's struggles with his job and wanting to get back to place in his career that he had "lost" for a while after a personal tragedy. I enjoyed the insight into a police officer's mind as well as the specifics of the mystery. It kept me guessing as to how it was all going to play out, and I liked it! I also thought the author did an excellent job of challenging us to think about how we, as Christians, interact with the world around us and how that is perceived. I am content to just sit and let others do?
I am also in the middle of Return to the Garden, Embracing God's Design for Sexuality. Wow. Just wow. God has brought me through so much junk through the years that I thought I was ready to deal with my kids on this subject. Through the last few years, I have been saddened because I watch so many teens I interact with struggle in ways that mimic my life history. I have always been drawn to teaching and helping teenagers. This study is one all moms and girls need to go through. It has challenged me to be more intentional in how I talk to my kids (boys and girls) about sexuality. I highly recommend it!
That's my thoughts.......from this spot.
