A Crazy Love Teaser

I am dying to do a book review on the book I am currently reading, Crazy Love. Oh my goodness, it is so amazing and encouraging. I am going through it with a couple of great girls, Erica and Chelsea, and we have two more chapters left, so I'll wait to do my book review until we're all done. BUT...

In the last two chapters that we read, there were some quotes that really stuck with me and I thought them quite pertinent to the season, so I thought I'd share.

1. From the chapter: Your Best Life...Later
The concept of downsizing so that others might upgrade is biblical, beautiful...and nearly unheard of.

2. From the chapter: Profile of the Obsessed (as in obsessed with Jesus)
I realized that everyone I knew had enough, that I didn't know many people who were truly in need, and that I needed to change that. I needed to go and intentionally meet people who don't live like I do or think like I do, people who could never repay me. For there sake, but for my own as well.

There is so much more in this chapter, but he goes on to quote 1 Timothy 6:6.
Godliness with contentment is great gain.

Oh man...there is so much on my heart about this. I can't wait to talk more about it with you. Until then, be blessed and a get your Crazy Love on! ;)

Beautiful post. Look forward to more from Crazy Love.

Speaking of books, I found a package I addressed to you and never mailed. I threw it in my trunk and forgot about it while preparing for Ike. It will be mailed this week.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Love, Annette
