Processing Thoughts

I am just coming off of a crazy week so this week I decided that we need to slow down our days and take some time to enjoy summer. We still have days filled with ball practice and ball games, but we are also going to take a break and get out of town. To Grandmother's House We Go tomorrow. . .YEAH!

This afternoon we spent a little time at the pool. It must have wore my little one out completely because she laid down on the couch and took a nap. This does not happen very often. She outgrew naps a year ago. So, I took full advantage of some quiet time. I grabbed my copy of The Shack and headed to the front porch.

I was over half done so I was hoping to finish it. . .and I did. I am a fast reader, but I have been taking my time reading this book because their is a lot to process. If you have not read this book, you should. In my opinion it can be a book that really helps you on your faith journey. It is a book of fiction, but it really makes you think about the relationships you have in your life. Especially your relationship with God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit.

Right now I am trying to process a lot of thoughts that came to me while I was reading this book. I will share more tomorrow after I have some time to get into my Bible and process everything that is running through my mind. Plus I am having a hard time concentrating on my writing. There are three little girls singing Kid's Church songs while they are drawing at the table right next to my computer. :-)

hmmmm, I have a copy of The Shack, but have been avoiding it. My sister-in-law and her busband, my daughter and one of my sons have all read it. I just couldn't make myself get in to it.
I will try again.
Enjoy your time away.
