Choosing to See

I don't know what to write about. I could tell you about my awesome 5AM trip to the gym, however, I am not sure how awesome it was, although I truly feel accomplished that I made it, and worked out, AND did 3.25 miles at 5AM! 

One thing I must tell you about is this book called 'Choosing to See' by Mary Beth Chapman .  It was a great book!  I read it on my trip to Brazil, however, I must warn you, I cried from the first sentence all the way to the end.  Sometimes I cried for the greatness of God, and sometimes I cried because of the pain that this family had to go through. 

This book is about a lot of things, life, death, and love, even when its hard.  But most importantly, it is about the goodness of God.  Because in all things, He is good.  I am about to lend my book out to my friend Katie.  And then if you'd like to borrow it (I would recommend asking for it for Christmas or purchasing it), please let me know.  But you must supply your own Kleenex.

After reading this, you will see, that there is no other choice, but to see the goodness of God.

Psalm 34:8 Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.

P.S.  This book is also stirring adoption in my heart again....  I wonder what God is up to....

Just read an interesting post on another blog about having "aged" out foster children in your home for thanksgiving. I love the idea.
Here is the link.
Maybe that is one thing you could do. :) I loved the idea but our Thanksgiving is usually spent in like 4 places in the same day.
