Stacey is the one that got me to read this book. I wasn't so sure about it first but she raved about it and so I caved. It is my second favorite book ever!!!!!! I could hardly put it down and read it super fast. I went into this book thinking it was a true story and that's still how I want to believe it. I have recently found out that it's just fiction, but then I read other places that it's true. Who knows!! You can go read about it on the Internet site. I want to tell y'all everything about this book but don't want to give anything away. Let me just say it talks about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. I bought a copy for my parents and insisted that they read it. Then my friend Lydia asked me if she could borrow a couple of books because they were driving to Destin, Florida and needed something to read. So I searched my house frantically trying to find it to only remember that I had borrowed Stacey's book. So I immediately went to Target and bought it. I plan on reading it over and over. I gave it to Lydia and I can't wait to hear what she thinks about it. If any of y'all want to borrow it, you can!!! But I bet you'll want your own copy by the time you're done. :)
The second book that I highly recommend is Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall & Denver Moore with Lynn Vincent. My parents tried to get me to read this book a couple of years ago but it just didn't sound interesting to me at all. I told them I would read it later...which later did eventually come which honestly when I said it, had no intentions of ever reading it. Anyway, two of my friends, Stacey and Christy...as well as many others I have recently found out on facebook, have read this book and couldn't put it down! So I asked my parents if I could borrow the book to read. Why on earth has it taken me this long to read this book? It's the BEST book I have ever read in my entire life!!! Stacey told me to get ready to cry a lot and I didn't really believe her because I don't hardly cry. Let's just say that Morgan thinks I am a nut half the time because I am crying and laughing at the same time. I have fallen in love with this book and the people in it. It's based on a true story about a rich white man and a black homeless man who become friends. It is their stories of their lives and how they became to call each other "friend." After you read it you will see why I say, "Everyone on this planet needs a friend like Denver." I actually have come across Ron...the rich white man...many times in my life and never knew what a great man I was encountering until recently. For 5 years I worked at Kincaid's in Fort Worth. The original Kincaid's off Camp Bowie. It's a famous hamburger place and here within the past couple of years they have grown to several stores. Kincaid's is the type of place where you see the same people all the time. Some people come EVERY Saturday like they are religiously going to church. I loved it there with the atmosphere and really getting to know our customers. Ron was a man that came there frequently. When I began reading this book I knew his name sounded familiar and then I stumbled upon a picture in the back of the book of him and Denver and I thought, "I know Ron! HE came to Kincaid's all the time." So that has made this book even more exciting for me to read!!!
My point of this blog is that I want EVERYONE to go buy these two books!!! I feel like you lives will be richly blessed by reading them. My friend's blog has so many posts about different things and fun things she finds on the Internet. So I decided to post about these books because I figured it would be a good way to reach out to many of y'all at one time!!! Enjoy, and if you do read these books, let me know how much you love them...or hate them...either way I would love to hear all about it!!!

If you've never eaten here, you must put it on your to do list!!!!!! So Yummy!!!
Saturday night we went down to his Nannie's and did our own fireworks. We also can see the fireworks all over the place but we get to see the ones that go off near McKinney and avoid the traffic...yay!!! That's a bonus to the country life is all of this open land. To go to and from anywhere we have to drive past a fireworks stand. I told Morgan that I wanted to get some Sparklers. So he stops, gets out, and then heads back to the car with a load of fireworks. Kinda made me nervous. But it all went well and no limbs were blown off in the process. He surprised me with my very own fireworks display...24 of them so it was so nice. I got my blanket out and laid down on the gravel road and watched the fireworks. They were so beautiful up close like that. After Morgan's fireworks show for me we sat in the bed of the truck and watched all of the other fireworks going off all around us. It was a great BiRtHdAy!!!
