The American Dream

Photobucket

What beautiful weather! We are loving it!

Today we spent some time outside in the warm sunshine. After rest-time, we plan to continue.

I read a book. And to just call it a book, does NOT do it justice.
 
While I read, children played.

I have been completely emersed in this book, and I have so much to say about it. If I said all I'd like to say, I'd say to every person I come in contact with..."Please sit down and let me read this book to you." Do you think they would run? 

Since there is so much in Radical that is mind boggling, I decided today as I was reading that since I had my little camera so handy, I would just take pictures of those words that spoke to me.  (Don't just read the parts that are underlined, read the entire page. It will make more sense.) So....here goes.....

Did you see this part???

I'm so thankful to be an American. But I wonder, am I living the American Dream?

I'm almost scared to read Radical. I think I've really got to be ready to change my life and the way I do Christianity!

I'm not sure I was ready:) But God has been working on me since I started it there is no doubt! It is tough! But you will be blessed by it!

Chase and I have read Radical and it has been a great eye opener for us. We are now beginning the one year challenge. I gave this book as a Christmas gift to some of my family. I wish everyone would read it!

I'm almost ready to read the book... I've heard so many talk about it, write about it. Truthfully, I want to pray that my heart & mind are in the right place when I do read it. That it would speak CLEARLY to me and that I would look to the Bible for the truths to clarify/reinforce the author's words. Can you tell I'm an overthinker? :)

Love your pics, glorious spring!
