Just An Idea/Thought

     I have an idea I would like to run by you.  I have seen on other blogs reading groups.  A book is chosen and anyone who wants to participate can read along and the join the discussion.

     I am embarrassed to admit this, but I am not a big reader.  I think having to read in school and college, I just lost my love for reading and I guess I have gotten a little lazy along the way too because I would rather watch TV or a movie.  I think it takes too much effort to visualize in my mind what I can just see on a screen in front of me.

     With that being said, I found a book on another blog today that if any of you are interested, I would like to try it.  The title is The Christian Atheist:  Believing in God But Living As If He Doesn't Exist.  It looks really interesting to me.  Some of you may be reading it in a church group or other group.  If you don't mind, let me know if you are interested in reading this book and discussing it here on my blog and/or on my facebook page for my blog  The Sisterhood of Spiritual Single Moms.  (As soon as I get enough likes, I will add my blue "f" on here.) 

     Like I said, I have seen this done on other blogs and it looks like a lot of fun and I have even looked at the comments although I wasn't reading along.  But, when I saw this book it just spoke to me and I would really like to read it, but I think it is one of those subjects you get more out of if you are in a discussion.  I was in a group at my church when The Purpose Driven Life came out and I am so glad I read it and no doubt I got more out of it by talking about it with others. 

     I know I have a strong faith and believe in God whole-heartedly, but I also know there are times I fall short and maybe don't act out the way I believe.  I think most people do, to an extent.  I know, especially in the next few days, everyone is either on vacation, heading out for vacation, or has a lot of fun holiday plans, but whenever you get a chance and see this, please let me know if any of you would be interested.  Have a safe and fun holiday wherever it takes you!
