Bible story books

A few years ago, a friend recommended this book as she was reading it to her children at the time and they all were really enjoying it. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when I started reading it as a preview for my husband who would be reading the book aloud to our son at bedtime. I only made it to chapter four before they were ready to start reading it together, but I must confess that even as an adult familiar with the content, I was intrigued by Starr Meade's retelling of well known Bible stories. Her consistent message of God working to bring about His plans through various peoples and families is a wonderful way to see the Bible for what it is: God's story of redemption.

Starr Meade now has a new book out called The Mighty Acts of God. Is there a limit on how many excellent Bible story books one family can own? I certainly hope not! :)

    This is a very public way of apologizing but I can't find an e-mail address for you, nor am I good on the phone...

    Please forgive me for spewing selfishness all over you on Sunday regarding the piano. What awful things I said! I sometimes say things out of ill-conceived humour that sounds funny in my head but plays out horribly once it passes my lips. I am very ashamed. I have spent years trying to beat that part of me into submission, but it still rears up if I haven't guarded myself properly. I am so sorry.

    I already apologized to Kate. She is set to get the piano but I think you two should talk. If I could rewind I would have stepped aside so you and your lovely family could receive the blessing of the piano.

    Heather, I remain grateful for the gift of your willingness to confront me about the kids' behaviour last year. Please try and forgive my deep lapse in character and continue to seek the best for me and my family.

    I am a woman who openly loves but also openly fails. And I openly failed you yesterday. Again, I am sorry.

    Much love and regret,

    Oh I'm so glad we talked today. I am getting quite the chuckle out of the whole conversation. You'd have to say something quite bad before I'd get mad. I only lose my temper with my family. :)


I enjoy reading your comments and try to reply as much as I can. Thanks for reading here.
