Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

a new read

I started this book a few days ago. Sara mentioned it on her blog earlier this year. I made note of it because the sub-title appealed to me..."answering the call to love one another."
It is not a theological or how-to book, but, rather a testimony of his experiences in learning how to love his brothers and sisters in the Body of Christ.....all of them! Many times, the things that divide us are really not that important. And often, we spend more time majoring on our slight differences than on the many things that unite us....especially our belief in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. If we are open, we can learn from each other and, perhaps, develop a deeper and more intimate understanding of our God.
A dear friend of his,W.G., is a Methodist pastor. The first day they met,
W.G. said this to him:
"Everything in your life, every book, every sermon, every telephone call,
every doubt, every prayer.....everything that has ever happened to you.....has conspired to bring you to this place among these very people to hear
what God has to say to you today."

Benson's response...."Of all the conspiracy theories that I have ever heard,
this is the only one I believe in."

I've only read two chapters.....I look forward to the rest! :-)


  1. It looks good, I always like it when you recommend books because I know I would like it too. I think so often I wear my heart on my sleeve and to walk this walk we need to let all of that go and look more at being more like who Jesus would want us to be.
    Thanks for your dear comments and I had to laugh at what you ate for dinner too.
    I hope you have a great week next week.

  2. I'm glad you are finding the book worth reading. The quote you selected (there are so many good ones in the book!) makes me want to say "Amen!" Our God is the Grand Weaver of our lives, down to the smallest detail.


Your comment is such a blessing and encouragement to me! Thank you for taking the time to leave one.
