***One of the happiest things in the world to me is an unexpected package arriving on my porch. Today I got one from my friend Susan: actor, writer, comedienne, day of fasting organizer, kombucha-brewer, 76-stair-climber, traffic-loathing, all-round girl wonder.
I opened the box to find various treasures as "thanks" for the honor of reading the manuscript for her ever-so-delicious book, Angry Conversations with God. There was no thanks necessary, as this book's message hit me at just the right time. I wish I could give you snippets here, but she hasn't given me the go-ahead yet. Suffice it to say: go buy this book when it's out next year. It's that good. And if you're lucky enough to be in a city where she's speaking on the book tour, hight-tail it to hear her read. You will laugh your hiney off, maybe get mad here and there, and definitely be challenged to think about God in new ways that just might make you love Him more as you realize deeper His abiding love for you. Reading both Susan's book and The Shack has done so much to help me through this challenging time we're in right now. She couldn't have been writing this book at a more perfect time for me, hence the no need for thanks.
One of the surprises in the box Susan sent was the same tea cozy featured here: click here.
Maybe because I'm a copycat and maybe just because I was cold, I followed the example of Susan as seen here.
It works well to keep my head warm. In fact, I'm wearing it now as I write this. And see, I'm having a warm cup of PGTips as I took that photo, though it did get cold rather quickly since the cozy was not in its proper place.
Nice job, Susan. I'm impressed. And really, no need to thank me for reading the book, but I sure like the cozy anyway. It's the coolest thing I've seen in a while. In fact, this is what I think of the cozy, your book, and mostly of you:
