Can you believe it has been almost a month? Can you believe Thanksgiving is in 2 days? Can you believe we will be tearing off our roof in 5 days?! Yikes! We Bents' like to live on the edge I tell you. We have been busy demolishing our house in hopes to improve it in the end. I have been busy with school, craft shows and well, life in general. I do have to tell you about a book I did manage to "squeeze" in to read. ( Well, I always make time for books). It is called "The Shack" and if you are looking for a thought provoking, "make you think" kind of book, this is definetly the one. Seriously, go and check it out. You can find out more at http://www.theshackbook.com/ I don't want to give too much away but it is about a man whose daughter is abducted. 3 years later he goes to get the mail and finds a letter in his mailbox from God to come and visit Him at the shack where they had found evidence of his daughter's brutal murder... this book "wrestles with the timeless question: Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?" It really is good. Trust me :)
I have been hoping to find some time to get some new jewelry done and in my Etsy but that may have to wait a wee bit longer as with our house project and holidays coming, time is a rare commodity. I will leave you with a montage of pictures of my life as of late. Hopefully, my next post will be sooner rather than later. I pray you all have a blessed Thanksgiving - God is good! -K
