2006 Repost

Today is the last Sunday of the year!  I'm off to church in about 25 minutes.

I happened across a post from 2006 that still cracks me up in 2013.  It's from a woman who clearly has some issues.

I'm on a reading binge.  I'm reading "Pilgrim's Progress" and it's very good.  A friend of mine said she didn't care for it at all but I definitely like it.  It's a Christian classic.  My pastor mentioned it and so I decided to check it out. The Slough of Despond!  Look for the steps!  They're there but while were in the slough we fail to see them.

And "The Daniel Diet" which I'm 1/3 way through.  [Oops, I meant "The Daniel Plan."]  I like it too although I'm no fan of Rick Warren.  I want to buy a vegetarian cookbook now, but went to and was overwhelmed with choices.  So I still haven't picked one.

"Addiction & Grace" by Gerald G. May, M.D. - Only on page 22 and about 75% reads like pablum to me with a few grains of absolute truth.  For example, because of our addictions we simply cannot, on our own, keep the great commandments.  We try.  We want to keep them.  It's our deepest desire.  But we fail.  Has about 100 reviews on Amazon.

"Forgotten God" - Haven't started it yet but it has 485 reviews.  The title alone appeals to me more than "Addiction & Grace."

And I found a fabulous set of sermons on the Book of Nehemiah.  They're downloadable at Nehemiah: Rebuilding the Walls.  I've listened to two others by Ray C. Stedman, but this Nehemiah one is the best.  Such a nice sense of humor he has.  "Now let's turn to the Book of Nehemiah.  I'll give you about five minutes to get there."  Haha!
