Isn't it funny when you come across something you don't remember writing, even though you know you did? Here's a poem I wrote in November last year that's been tucked away in my computer under my "Poetry" tag:

Lawrence Hello Nancy...Thank you for accepting my friendship into your circle of friends. I look forward to sharing books and reviews with you. It's great to have a new friend on GR with two great things in common...loving our Lord Jesus Christ and the love for books.


Robbie Hi Nancy,

I just finished Lone Wolf. I've read almost all of Jodi Picoult's books and I can't really say why but this one really resonated with me. It's one of my favorites of her books.
