I've Joined the Crowd

I've joined the masses who have read Same Kind of Different As Me and are singing it's praises. Outside the obvious reasons to love it (the story), the imagery and use of beautiful words captivated me.

Oh, the way I so often quietly escape God's possibilities when I see things only through my limited eyes! Ron and Denver and their story was a part of God's delicate, intricate and perfect plan. I loved the way Miss Debbie was so open.

I'm starting a book club with a friend later this month. I met her when we were in Leadership Abilene last school year. She works with the City of Abilene. We've agreed this is the book we are going to read. I can't wait to discuss it. Also, I can't wait to hear Denver and Ron on Tuesday night at ACU at 7 p.m. I'll have my book there for them to sign. Will you be there?

What are God's possibilities for our lives? Things we could never hoped for or imagined, I'll bet. And...it's wonderful. Why? Simply because He loves us.

Really looking,
Lila

I am having to schedule my family's evening akin to a NASA launch schedule so that I can go -- alone, when I had originally planned on all 4 of us going. But I am DETERMINED! I am eager to hear what Ron and Denver may have to say...
