Meeting at the shack


"We live in a world where ‘normal’ does not truly exist except as an idea or concept. For each of us, where and how we grew up plays a foundational role in our sense of ‘normal’, and only when we begin to experience the ‘bigness and diversity’ of the world are we tempted to evaluate our roots. I thought the way I grew up was ‘normal’ but I think most would probably agree that my history and journey have been a bit unusual." - William Young, author of The Shack

I have been reading a book called The Shack, and so far have loved it and the way it is making me think about Gods love and his relationship with me, with us. I just Googled the book to see what would come up about it, (things I do to keep myself occupied at work when the phone isn't ringing) and this was a quote I found from the author in talking about his personal journey. I love it, it echoes some of the thoughts and feelings I have had, and have, about this big world we live in and my journey in it. I am thankful for talented writers and authors that can put my thoughts and feelings into words more eloquently then I can. It helps me communicate at times like this when I feel at a loss of words or pictures or any sort of communication skill. When I lack the ability to sort through my web of thoughts and come up with something coherent to share.

So that's just a little bit of sharing (via William Young), something to think about, and if you want more, I recommend reading The Shack.
