A GOOD READ...
One of our ministers recently quoted from this book in a sermon recently. This is a quick read, and really hits home for me. The Land Between is about life and transitions. It takes you back to Old Testament times and how Abraham and the Israelites reacted to their time in the "land between" and helps us focus on how we've reacted in our lives and can prepare for the difficult transitions. "The land we least desire may produce the fruit we most desire-if we will let it, if we can turn toward God with open hearts as Moses did rather than turn away from God in bitterness as the Israelites did."
I've been interested in this for several years, since my first born left for college - even thought about renaming my blog, since I technically only have one teen left at home now. I've thought about calling it "Transitions" as we are all really in that state. We'll see. For now, check this book out! You'll thank me.
