Hi Jonathan! This does look like an interesting book. Have you read it?
How have you & "She Who Must Be Obeyed" been during this Lenten season? I've remembered the two of you in my prayers lately. Not sure why, I just felt prompted to pray for you & your family. So I did. Everything ok w/ you & yours?
It's been an interesting Lent for me. I was led to ask the Lord to free me from my need for control. I was warned that this would be a painful journey. I can attest to that! Seeking control runs so very deep in me... So far, I've been experiencing one situation after another in which I'm forced to face that I have no control over them. In every situation, I've had the choice to resist or to surrender. I have to confess that I've discovered I'm still quite spiritually immature; I seem to need to rant & rave a bit before surrendering. I wish I could more easily grasp that everything which comes my way is by the hand of God. His sovereignty is something I grasp with my intellect, but I seem to be in the infancy of accepting it in the mind of my heart. I'm so grateful for His mercy & His patience with me!
God bless you, Jonathan, & write back when you can.
