read this. LOVED it.

"How you go'n stand it. . . . I mean goin' home every night and she ain't there."

"Do I got a choice, Will Tweedy? I got to stand it, ain't I? Livin' is like pourin' water out of a tumbler into a dang Coca-Cola bottle. If'n you're scared you can't do it, you can't. If'n you say to yourself, 'By dang, I can do it!' then by dang, you won't slosh a drop . . . . I wouldn't ask the Lord to steady my hand for a thing like pourin' water into a Coca-Cola bottle. But I'll be askin' Him for help on this."

PS. Hopefully I'll get my act together and get the final changes to the designer for the new blog soon! Holding off on "real" blogging until after my face lift. :) Hang in there friends! SOOOOOO close!

I've been wondering about the new blog but didn't have the heart to ask. I know you've been waiting for quite a while.

You're probably reading my copy. I read it and loved it, then hated it, then loved it, then hated it, then loved it. I still love it now!

I just finished that book and loved it! Such a good book - especially loved the part at the end explaining "ask and it shall be given you". Wonderful story and a lot of truth!
