The ShackThe Shack by William Paul Young

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This book struck different chords in me.

First, when I first read it, my daughter was about a year old, so the main thread of the book was very troubling and depressing to me, so much so that I really did not like reading the book.

Next, the de... Read more of this blog post »

Nina Wirk Nina Wirk's blog:
Contemplating specific low points
and high points of the human experience…
Step aside,
go to the back.
Step away.
Step straight ahead,

Going above and beyond

just the expanse of possibilities surrounds me.

And if it does, my thoughts are with those poor bastards. You’re low on cash; call for a Code 40. Yes, I know you still have two...
