Thursday Thankfulness

This morning I sent an email to my music BFF with the subject line "Food."  It has encompassed my craving for an amazing Mediterranean restaurant near her, bacon of the month clubs (Praise the LORD for the New Testament), and finally this recipe which is on repeat at my house.  I suggest a Pinot Grigio.

Really, what's not to love about an email chain related to food.  Unless you back up to yesterday where we had an email chain about "Les Miserables", actresses who do controversial roles to get Hollywood's attention, and our love of all things Broadway.

Of course then you could back up two days to our chat where her boss made her pack up her things, walked her to a coffee shop, bought her drink and told her to work there the rest of the day.

So, today I am thankful for gmail.  And friendship rooted in music, food, theater, and a deep love of our Lord.  And for the fact that this friendship was grown and strengthened through gchat when we were living half a world a way from each other and keeps us in contact now that we are in the same time zone.

Um... so first I get excited because you have posted and then I read the post and realize what you are talking about and maybe get a little misty eyed. Seriously it would be fun to go through and read all of our gmail/gchat exchanges. Although on second thought.... :-) Hugs to you!

I know this is totally a random thought. But.... I was reading Christian Fiction Blog Alliance and discovered that you like to do book reviews. God has led me to write a book series called Love, God and Tattoos, about a troubled, teen aged, tattoo artist named Alcatraz. The synopsis of the story is "Fifteen year old Alcatraz is being chased. Born and raised in a loving family, she suddenly finds herself fending for her life on the streets of Los Angeles. Consumed with anger, hurt and confusion, Alcatraz turns to the spiritual realm to find life's answers. While experimenting with pagan spells, Buddhist chants, and yoga sutras, she continually encounters a spirit who claims He is God. The Truth she learns from this spiritual quest introduces her to the unexpected world of divine healing, acceptance and unconditional love."

If you are interested in reviewing the book I'd love to send you a copy.

Thank you so much for the opportunity. Check out my website below for more info.

Look forward to hearing from you.
