March 2012 Wrap-up

It’s that time again! Another month has passed us by and it is time for a wrap-up. So why do I do this? First of all my memory is terrible and often find myself wondering when such and such happened. Second of all I love lists and information. Third of all I believe I am a type A personality. Let's just say that I like to see my life all wrapped up, nice and tidy with a bow. Enough said.
Here's a look at our month:
Entertainment – what we’re looking at , listening to and going to!
Books, Magazines, Blogs read:
Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo;

I really liked this book. It gave a very interesting view on what we might expect in heaven. I was touched by the thought of our young children (miscarriages even) “growing” in heaven, of needing names; of the elderly living on in their “prime age”; and the knowledge that we can “vent” with God. Life isn’t perfect. The thought of fighting battles for Jesus is something that I had never considered either. I loved the perspective from a child’s eyes – it certainly felt believable. It has come up in conversation a few times. I highly recommend it.
