Miracle at the Higher Grounds Cafe by Max Lucado


I do not read many fiction books like this, but for some reason it intrigued me. That being said, it was a cute story that I read in just a few days. It had an interesting story line and tugged at your heart. Our protagonist is separated from her husband who had an affair. God was up to something in his life, but she was too stubborn to see it. We the many twists and sometimes cheesy turns she takes to be willing to love again. The story is based on a highly unlikely scenario, but it does leave the mind asking questions. If you could ask God one question and get the answer in writing, what would you ask?

This book was graciously provided by Thomas Nelson Publishers for review.

Giving Hilariously Tuesday

Hey, y'all. My man hit a deer last night in our good car. We are all a little shaken up, but at the very moment Denbigh and Lulu were hit by a deer, God prompted my heart to pray. They drove home. They walked in the door to me. Of course, our Lulu was in tears, but they were fine otherwise. Our car is messed up. It's not worth much, but it's how we got around. It's how we get to where we serve. If you have an old car lying around, we could use it to share the love of Jesus. 

Our original estimate for windows was around $20,000 which of course we giggled at. We have a darling friend (who will love that I called him darling) that owns a window company. He made us a bid for $13,500. We are starting with our room which is around $3,500. Some of the windows on the third floor are missing and rain is getting in so that's up next. If you feel led to give to our 501(c)3 non-profit, we would be honored and humbled to receive your gift.

It takes a lot to run this house and feed our guests. The emotional stamina needed alone is intense. We could use your prayers. I am so thankful for words of encouragement and the grace you show us. I can't write out all of the things we do here because they are private in nature to the people we befriend and provide for, but I would love to share with you. God is doing beautiful things in the underbelly of his kingdom right before our eyes. We see walls break down and love received. It is a privilege to be a part of. Thank you for being a part of it with us. I cannot tell you how thankful we are for the simple ways you show up for us.

Give hilariously. Give wildly. Love someone today.
