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:

Congratulations! Hugs, e-Mom ღ
