A Good Read
Ok - I am a librarian you know - at some point I have to post about a good book. SO - here it is. I just finished Digging to America by Anne Tyler and LOVED IT!!! I have never read an Anne Tyler book before but, this being my first, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is about two families that adopt Korean daughters and their stories of differences in raising them, etc. Maybe I loved it most because of having adopted - a lot of it "rang true" to me - it is not one of those suspenseful thrillers but a great family story that makes you feel good when you finish it. Sadly enough, it is not often that I finish a book that I feel I can refer onto others but this is one that I have been recommending - it is a winner!!
When you are harvesting your crops and forget to bring in a bundle of grain from your field, don't go back to get it. Leave it for the foreigners, orphans and widows. Then the LORD your God will bless you in all you do.
