I feel like a bit of a walking advertisement today, with what I plan to post and all.
I'm wearing a sweater with a logo on it. I think everybody should own a black lab. You should watch the movie Promises. Even if it's biased (like several reviewers on Amazon said), it's still an extremely well-done documentary, and I enjoyed it very much. And, if you don't own the book Valley of Vision, you should get that too.
I read a prayer out of VV this morning and a phrase that hit me (I'll have to paraphrase because I don't have it in front of me). "Lord, dig out the weeds of my life at the very root."
Maybe when I have time, I'll post what it actually said. But for now, you get the point. Or you can just go buy the book yourself :)
Update, more ads:
