We need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature--trees, flowers, grass--grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence...We need silence to be able to touch souls. --Mother Teresa

My Current Read

This is my current read......

He usually writes stuff that I can't follow.  I want to follow, but it's just too tangled up.  So when I found this at the library, I almost left it at the library.

I probably should have left it.  I only have a gajillion things to do and all I want to do is read.  I am about 1/4 of the way done and its a sad book.  I have only cried twice.  Maybe thrice.  But here's why.....the main character has an illness that the doctors gave him 6-8 months to live and his wife is killed on Christmas Eve going out to get his pain meds.  See?

I'll let you know how it turns out.  I am a sucker for happy endings.  Just sayin'.

I'm on the reserve list for this one at the Hutch library, but my name hasn't come up yet. It's a departure for him; he usually writes thrillers/mysteries, which I also like. I love finding a book I can't put down. Enjoy! You should have a last hurrah of relaxation before school anyway.

Your own soul is nourished when you are kind, but you destroy yourself when you are cruel. -Proverbs 11: 17
