This is a nonfiction book that I have sort of a love-hate relationship with:

"When God Writes Your Love Story." This is a very interesting book about relationships. I love the general concept, that my love life is something I tend to hold on to too tightly, and that things would be so much better if I just handed it over to God and let Him have control. Of course, that goes for many things in my life, but this is a major one for me right now. So in some ways, this book gives me hope. But in other ways, I'm a little iffy about a few things. First of all, where do you draw the line? Where is the point where you've let God lead, but now it's your place to do something and have a part? And also, there's the fact that Eric and Leslie's relationship comes off as a little too perfect. And they didn't have to wait for each other very long-they were very young when they courted and got married (like younger than 20, I think? At least she was). That brings up something that I've always wondered about: how two people can both long for and desire marriage and love, and one person might find it at a very young age, while the other person might have to wait until their 40's or 50's? I know that God's will is different for everyone, but still...Anyway, back to the book. I like it a lot. And I highly recommend it to anyone. It just brings up a lot of questions and makes me think about things.

Until next time,

  1. I will have to check that book out! It sounds like something I would enjoy. And sorry about not sticking to the spring fling schedule. But I will do it this summer with a link back to you, since you started it!

    Yay for you! Embroidery is so much fun. I was the same way in thinking that it was going to be harder than sewing by was at first, but after I got the hang of it, I had a blast!

    Enjoy creating wonderfully creative pieces of art, Kirsten.
