"Do you know Jesus Christ as your personal Savior?"
I smiled broadly and assured him I did.
He then grinned and held out his hand to shake mine, "Glad to meet you, sister."
Hehehe...I thought that was cute.
And, no, I am not offended. You care for my soul? Thank you very much! I mean that for people of any religion who care enough for my soul to share their faith.
I was down to half a book left to read from my quest to read all my books so I treated myself to A TRIP TO THE LIBRARY!!!!!!!!! When I read books, sometimes I notice in the footnotes a book that seems interesting. First I'll look online to see if my library has it. If not, I resort to Amazon.com and my Wishlist. I keep a notebook of the library books I may want to check out and I took it with me today.
I found a few from my list and - as always - a few not from the list that just, you know the drill: jumped off the shelves into my arms.
*tsk* Naughty books.
I'm glad I took my reusable bag to carry them all. I had a sack of books!
You know that verse in Luke about Jesus coming to seek and save that which was lost? I figured out this week part of that must be relationships. He came to seek relationships and restore them. And the more I see people having problems within families - mothers rejecting daughters; fathers abandoning families; children rebelling - the more I see the wonderfulness of this aspect of Jesus.
Thank you, God, for your willingness to heal relationships!
More and more I see the value in whole relationships. It's really awful to be at odds with people who should be bound by love.
Wouldn't it be nice to just sit around, enjoy your family and have peace?
