I'm reading a book that a friend gave me, that another friend told me about, which is a sequel to a book that a completely different friend gave to me a few years ago. (See all the people God uses to bring comfort to one person?)
The book I'm currently reading/devouring is called A New Kind of Normal by Carol Kent. She also wrote When I Lay My Isaac Down. I wrote a blog post about that book a long time ago and begged you to read it. Did you read it???
On the front cover of this book it says, "Hope-Filled Choices When Life Turns Upside Down"
How fitting right?
Well, she quoted a man in this book and I wanted to share it with you.

For some reason if you can't read what's on the picture it says:
"When suffering shatters the carefully kept vase that is our lives, God stoops to pick up the pieces. But he doesn't put them back together as a restoration project patterned after our former selves. Instead, he sifts through the rubble and selects some of the shards as raw material for another project---a mosaic that tells the story of redemption." ~Ken Gire
I'm still trying to figure out what my "New Kind of Normal" is.
