I had my phone and could answer emails but that was about it...
which freed me up for other things... like reading!
Between the hubby and the kids and the dogs and the crazy cat and my advocacy, I literally fall into bed at night - WAY to late!
So, without the computer or the house cleaning or the cooking (thank you Mom) or the yard work, or, or, or... I was able to read!
I had heard about a book, a really good book, a very moving book and a very thin book! Hehe!
A book called Crazy Love by Francis Chan
I had seen a video clip of Francis Chan, this video clip
and it really intrigued me and motivated me and scared me.
Then I began to hear about this book again and again from other bloggers and friends. I had heard first hand from an old friend of mine how it had caused her family to rethink their lives to live more for the Lord! They were actually doing something about it - because of this book!
Wow! Now I really had to read this book and wouldn't ya know it, we were just getting ready for our week at the beach, our week with no computer or cooking (thank you Mom) or house cleaning or yard work!
Funny how that worked out, huh??
So, I got the book and I read it and I have very mixed emotions about it.
On one hand, I loved it!
On the other hand, it really scared me!
I thought I was living a Godly life. I mean I made sure we were at Church
He definitely stretched me far beyond what I ever thought possible, so I'm good right Lord? That was what I was asking - until I read this book!
This book challenged me and the way that I looked at my life and how I was living (or not) for God!
I am praying a lot about this now and asking that He guide me and help me to be on fire for Him. I don't know just how He will change me or my life but I am excited to see!
If any of you all have read Crazy Love, I would love to hear your thoughts and how or if it has changed you.
Got any other
I know this is Sunday Snapshot, so I will leave you with these 2 pics that I took just the other day (with my phone - sorry for the quality)
This is how I want to live for Him! A great big leap of faith:):)
