I'm sitting at JP's in Longview - my favorite coffee shop. I came here so I could catch up on editing and uploading some recent photo shoots. So far, I've been reading and people watching. I just had to share a quote from the book I am currently reading. The book is titled Confessions of a Good Christian Girl, but this quote is actually found in a book called Shattered Dreams. Anyway, it really hit me the other day, and I'm just now getting around to sharing it.

"It comes down to this: God's best is only available only to those who sacrifice, or who are willing to sacrifice, the merely good. If we are satisfied with good health, responsible children, enjoyable marriages, close friendships, interesting jobs, and successful ministries, we will never hunger for God's best. We will never worship. I've come to believe that only broken people truly worship. Unbroken people - happy folks who enjoy their blessings more than the Blesser - say thanks to God the way a shopper thanks a clerk." -Larry Crabb
