I recently picked up a book that was first recommended to me by our pastor's wife. I don't usually read autobiographies, but this book is just lovely. It's called `Kisses from Katie' and it's about a young lady (younger than me by ten years!) who goes to Uganda and adopts over a dozen children. The book is very encouraging, both in how much she loves God and how she encourages the reader to look around and see where they can be loving and helping others where they are. She writes a blog that is very much worth checking out, and tells a lot about what she's doing to help in Uganda. I'm posting a link here.
As for my life, it has been filled recently with the best kind of busyness. I'm still spending a lot of time at play practice, and when I'm not there, I'm working on my new novel, and they are both gifts.
You know how sometimes after a really heavy rainstorm the sun comes out and every branch, every leaf, every stalk of grass or weed (in our yard there are lots of those) is shining with drops of water so dazzling you almost can't look? That's what life is like right now. Covered with shimmers.
