A book I've been reading...

A few months ago...too many really...I started to read a book that was recently released by Thomas Nelson Publishing written by Max Lucado called "His Name is Jesus". Since it's got a really nice "extra" box sleeve for it, I was thinking that it would make a great gift, but I quickly realized that it's really got some great content for ME in it too.

I love Max Lucado's style in writing in general, from his kids book to his studies and devotionals, and His Name is Jesus is written in that same, easy to read, flow. The balance of informational/instructional writing with his gentle, encouraging words, make it SO easy to read. I learned a lot, and loved every moment of it, feeling as if I were being gently led down a path to a great destination.

I was comfortable in that this book is not anything controversial, not political or antagonistic in view. Just a really good book in a great package. I am really pleased with it, and would recommend it to others.

This book will make a great gift for someone, but I'll have to buy another one to give, as this one is all mine!

I feel tender and raw...vulnerable. I cry at the drop of a hat, even over silly things, like TALKING about not watching a movie that would make me cry...not even watching that movie. Just talking about it. Oh dear! I did want to touch base though as we approach Christmas...all the sadness is making me draw even nearer to Jesus, because He is my hope (and the hope of the world). I've enjoyed my time of Advent, singing in the choir at church, baking cookies for friends and neighbors. It helps me to shift gears emotionally and mentally when I can change it up a bit and do something new. And in God's goodness, He is allowing us to do something new for Christmas! I'll share the detai

Romans 12, Parts 2 and 3: Balanced and Beautiful in Christ

The new posts that I wrote for Balanced and Beautiful in Christ are now live on their Facebook page, and here on my new blog site (subscribe there so you don't miss a thing!). It's been a crazy few weeks (ok...are we going on several months now??) but I'm grateful that God had me write (and schedule) these several weeks ago. I pray that the words bless you and draw you closer to Himself.  Blessings, marina
