Book o' the Month


One thing I love to do is read. Last year we got the book, the Purpose Driven Life by Dr. Rick Warren. http://www.purposedrivenlife.com/en-US/Home/home.htm

I had read it about half way through, and it was fantastic and then it got misplaced. Well I found it the other day (Under our bed!) and i dusted it off and have started back at Chapter One.
How much do I love this book? Here are some of my favorite sentences in the book Chapter 2 says "Long before you were conceived by your parents, you were conceived in the mind of God."
and this poem byRussell Kelfer

"You are who you are for a reason,
You're part of an intricate plan.
You're a precious and perfect unique design,
Called God's special woman or man.

You look like you look for a reason.
Our God made no mistake.
He knit you together within the womb,
You're just what he wanted to make.

The parents you had were the ones he chose,
And no matter how you may feel,
They were custom-designed with God's plan in mind,
And they Bear the master's seal.

No, the trauma you faced was not easy.
And God wept that it hurt you so,
But it was allowed to shape your heart
So that into his likeness you'd grow.

You are who you are for a reason,
You've been formed by the Master's rod.
You are who you are,my beloved,
Because there is a God. "
-Russell Kelfer
