Good book

My dad and I are reading this book called The Christian's Secret of a Happy Life. I think it's a pretty good book, but I am only on the 3rd chapter. I read the 3rd chapter, A Life Defined, and thought it was so good that I had to share it with all of you. I think it is something that all Christians deal with at various times in their lives (or if they are like me, all the time) and so I thought it would be good for you to read if you see fit. If you read it please let me know what you thought. Oh, I should probably give you an idea of what it is about. This chapter discuses completely surrending our burdens to the Lord. We have a tendancy to take our burdens to foot of the throne and give them to God to take care of but when we get up to leave we put them right on our backs again and leave, not really giving them up which is not what He had in mind. I've never been a great summerizer so I'll just leave it at that and hope that you enjoy it and learn from it as much as I did.

Hey Tabs,

Thanks for the referral on the book! I'm always looking for new stuff to read. I read chapter three, and I really like the author's perspective and writing style. It was like each little word was a tasty little morsel for me to savor and digest in my mind. So, I'm going to have to read the whole book. It was just the other day I was looking for a book to read in the hospital and while I'm recovering. Thanks again friend!

Hmm. Looks interesting. Speakiing of books, I just finished a very interesting novel. It's content was quite heavy but I highly recommend it. It's called 'The Kite Runner' by Khaled Hosseini and it's about Afghanistan. Like I said it deals with some pretty difficult issues but the author is amazingly talented and I couldn't believe how drawn in I was by his character development. I love it when a book sucks you in so deeply that you're actually feeling the same things that the characters are.
