Book Group Today

Our church has a little book group that I went to today. We met in one of my neighbor's homes. The book was The Alliance by Gerald Lund. (I know books are supposed to be underlined but I haven't figured out how to do that. And why we are at it, how do people cross out words on their posts? I don't see any way to do that either.)

Here is our little group. I'm not Stephanie, my master's in literature daughter, but here is a quick review. It is kind of a "Big Brother" is watching you 1984, I Am Legend. It seems to be more of a young adult book. It was simply written and OK for me. It is not a book I would have read without it being the assigned book.

If you want to read a good book, pick up Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson (I think I spelled his name correctly) or The Last Lecture by Randy Paush. These are books that might make a difference in your life.
Speaking of things that might make a difference in your life...I hope you all take extra time to love and appreciate those around you. Helen, sitting down on the right, lost her son-in-law yesterday. He was instantly killed when an older man pulled out in front of him as he was riding his motorcycle on a main street. This took place in Texas. Bless her heart, she even hosted the book group today even though I offered my home after I heard about the tragedy. Life is fleeting...hug those babies.

Isn't it so true -- you whole life can change in the blink of an eye. I hope your friend is doing ok.

As far as I know, blogspot doesn't have a nifty little button to allow you to do a strikethrough. There is a way to do it in blogspot, but I can't type it out here, cause when the comment gets printed, it will actually change my instruction, so I'll send you a word file with the instructions in it. There's a way for me to type the insructions here and not have them interpreted but I don't know how to do it.

That probably didn't make any sense, but I'll send you a file!

Well, let's just say, I'll send you a word document when my e-mail comes back up -- I can't seem to get into it tonight. I have instructions with pictures for you, but without my e-mail I don't know your e-mail address!
