My outside office!!!  Can it get any better?

So enjoying being a country girl again!  Had started the following post awhile ago. Finally finished Bonhoeffer!!!

Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy by Eric Metaxas

This is one of the books I’m working though…it’s taking me a long time on this one.
A quote from the book: ” If you board the wrong train it is no use running along the corridor in the opposite direction.”  Deitrich Bonhoeffer
I’m determined to finish it since I have two friends I know will read it quickly and thoroughly enjoy it. It’s fascinating.  Since I was fortunate to travel to Germany in high school, I find it even more interesting.  One area I wish I would have been more aware of growing up is all the amazing missionaries and stories of Christians around the world making a difference for His kingdom.  That their are and have been modern day martyrs is a new thing for me in the last ten years. How can that be since I attended a Lutheran school?  Why was I not praying for these brothers and sisters?   I read Heavenly Man by Brother Yun several years ago and I kept thinking, this was going on while I was busy playing the high school social game.

Another one of my favorite quotes.

“If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a  great street sweeper who did his job well.”   Martin Luther King Jr
