this undeserved mercy

but go on and take My picture,
go on and make Me up
I’ll still be your Defender,
you’ll be My missing son
and I’ll send out an army
just to bring you back to Me
because regardless of your brother’s lies
you will be set free
I am My beloved's
and My beloved’s mine
so you bring all your history
and I’ll bring the bread and wine
and we’ll have us a party
where all the drinks are on Me
then as surely as the rising sun
you will be set free
~derek webb, from the album She Must and Shall Go Free~

Are you OK? What's this about? Haven't heard from you in awhile...?

Hey, how is the Elizabeth Prentiss book? I have been reading the questions about it on Girltalk, and I am so jealous that you have the book and have been reading it! I'll have to get the book next month and join in on the book club.

Meanwhile, I have a huge stack of stuff to read right now that is great already!

Second question, have you read Valley of Vision? I keep hearing so much about it. I think I really want to read it. Darn! It's hard to work in a bookstore! :)

By the way, I'm organizing people to go see "Amazing Grace" when it comes out. Do you guys want in? (I've only asked a guy I work with and his wife so far). It comes out the 23rd.

Of COURSE I'd love to go see it!!

The GirlTalk blog is what got me interested in Elizabeth Prentiss :)

I haven't read Valley of Vision yet, either, but it's one I've been wanting to read as well. Do you know how much it is at the bookstore right now? Yeah, I DEFINITELY couldn't do what you do and still have money in the bank!
