Ok, you may get sick of me but I feel like I am going to BURST if I don't add a part two to chapter two!! But I promise to keep it short ;) Maybe.
I have to quote from page 31.....
"In this journey of desire.......you move out of the stands and onto the playing field. In the stands, you are just a spectator, watching your own life, a passive onlooker to a game where other people call the plays. You are what someone else says you are. It's the turtle story, where a hard shell protects all the live stuff inside. But you can only stay in the stands so long without the soul-numbing sense that you are missing your own life. The only one God gave you. To move from being a spectator is to step out on the field and risk banging up your knees a bit. To experience the muddy, sweaty exhilaration of actually playing the game...."
And then she asks the questions.....
"What would you begin to do if you thought you could?"
"Would you want to live in a foreign country?" (Hmmm...lol)
"Or begin a ministry no one else had attempted?" (Maybe...)
"Or write a book?" (YES!!)
"Or plant a perennial garden?"
"Or ask your mother-in-law if there wasn't some way to mend the defeaning silence between you?"
Think about it.......
