A Smorgasbord of Thoughts

Greetings from South Carolina!
.
Smorgasbord of thoughts sounds much better than "A Jumble of Things Rattling Around in My Head", doesn't it?
.
Today started early and involved a lot of traveling. Around 10 hours on the road and two or so distributed between meals and pit stops.
.
Since I have the apparently rare ability to read in a moving vehicle, I put my travel time to good use. I started and finished the book "To Save A Life", which was adapted from the movie soon to be released on DVD. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It's absolutely excellent and here is a trailer for the movie:

.
I also am halfway through The Life You Always Wanted by John Ortberg and I am loving it. If only I had not misread the syllabus and started the incorrect book. Unfortunately, Mr. Ortberg's fine book will be laid aside while I catch up on this week's book, Ordering Your Private Life. Rats. Reading instructions was never my strong suit. Oh well, we still have at least two hours driving time tomorrow.
.
Excitement is abounding for this week! I just cannot wait to see what God has in store for our gang! We have an awesome God, so I'm expecting an awesome week!
.
Please keep us in your prayers as we prepare to share the Word!

The Life You Always Wanted was a textbook for one of my Theo classes. Too bad you had to set it aside!

When you have a chance, there's an Award waiting for you on my "Christmas in July" party post: http://www.chrysaliscafe.com/2010/07/youre-invited-to-my-christmas-party.html

Congratulations! Hugs, e-Mom ღ
