We have been enjoying some incredible weather these last two days. Which is nice because my oldest had been sick all of last week with strep throat. My poor baby girl is such a trooper, all she did was just lay in bed watching movies and sleeping. I feel so blessed that I could stay at home with her and help her get better. I may have spoiled her a little bit too :) Do you do anything special for your child if they're sick?
The Dance by Dan Walsh and Gary Smalley is the story of Marilyn. Marilyn has the perfect life, so it seems. She goes to church at a well respected church, she drives the right car and her husband and her have been married for 27 years. The only thing is, that her husband doesn't love her. Tired of feeling that nothing will change she makes a choice that won't just affect her, but everyone around her.
This book was something that I feared reading, not only is the plot extremely realistic for any married couple but I have seen this happen numerous times. When I started reading this, my heart was routing for Marilyn and Jim; hoping that they could work out their problems in a way that honored God and drew them closer to each other. Mr. Walsh and Mr. Smalley did not disappoint me. The book was a good read and I sure am glad that I read it. So dear readers if you are looking for an insightful romance that brings the power of the Lord to the front of your mind, I highly suggest you read The Dance.

And do not grumble, it all of a sudden ocurred to me how much grumbling/complaining can be a sin. How often to I grumble, and how rare is it for me to find the good in something I could very well complain about. Such a simple reminder, now I just have to remember it when I start to open my mouth and...
