that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

the shack


My dear friend Jen called me in hysterics a number of weeks, soo excited because she was going to go see William P. Young, the author of The Shack speak at a college in Calgary — one of those fleeting moments I regretted ever moving away. Anyhow, another friend from Calgary just showed me where I could hear his talk online… ergo, here it is for you. I encourage those who loved the book (Michelle!) to listen to this. It is so interesting, powerful, and explains so much of the phenom that is The Shack. It’s quite challenging too…and I spent a lot of time crying. Please listen to it. It’s quite long… so get some tea and kick back:

I especially love when he talks about how ultimately, our goal should be that the separation between us and God is none existent…that our goal should be to be one with Him.

Be blessed.

  1. How long is quite long? I too was very moved by the book and would be interested in hearing the author.

  2. OHHH….you’ve entered so many things in your blog….I’m BEHIND!!!

    I’m going to listen to it next week when the girls are all at school…

    I did SO love ‘The Shack’….

    ‘So, then, are you saying that all roads lead to you?’ ‘ No’, says Jesus, ‘I’m saying, I would travel ANY road to get to you.’

    I LOVE IT.
