blog I was taken aback. Spectacular sins? I had never quite heard of sin being referred to as spectacular. But - it was a spectacular book on how God is glorified and his will is accomplished through the BIG SINS of biblical characters like Judas, Saul (Old Testament), and Joseph's brothers. It resonated with me because on a smaller scale I believe God accomplishes his purposes in my life and the lives of those associated with me through my failings, mistakes, and sins.I had come to this understanding awhile back and was oddly comforted by it. This book brought home that point even more. There's a lot more I could say about it, but I recommend you just read it. Awesome and inspiring!
No book list would be complete without mentioning some of my all-time favorite children's books. One of my favorites is by Sandra Boyton, Moo Ba La La La.( I treaure so many of her books!) I can't tell you how many copies we've gone through because they've literally been read to death, and stepped on, and had milk spilled and dried on them (eww!) and so on and so forth. Daisy's favorite book when she was little, and mine, too, was Good Night Gorilla by Peggy Rathmann. That book is so humorous. I could give you quite a list of my favorite children's books and I'm always looking (at the library, of course) for new favorites.I love to give books as baby shower gifts, especially hard cover chunky books. They're great for toddlers, fit well in diaper bags and in their chubby hands, and are very helpful at restaurants when the tyke is done eating but needs some entertainment. Trust me, I've learned all the tricks!
Anyway, I'm looking around for a new fascinating and stimulating book to read (feel free to offer any suggestions!). I'm really wanting to read some marvelous biographies. A friend suggested the biography of Sara Edwards - wife of Jonathan ("Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God") Edwards. Could be quite interesting....if I could only add an extra hour (or two) to my day. I just know there'll be PLENTY of time - an eternity! - to read in Heaven.
