Great book!

"Yet she kept discovering in the places of deepest aloneness and emptiness the God who was with her, for her. She discovered Christ's presence from the inside out, seeing what He sees as He sees it. She now has a sense of what the world looks like from a cross. She knows the darkness of the inside of a grave. And she knows, more and more, the brightness of a new day when the world is glimpsed as from a tomb, its stone rolled away." -Mark Buchanan

This is only one of the many AMAZING quotes I've found in Angie Smith's new book, entitled I Will Carry You (she begins each chapter with a quote, and ends each with scripture). I'm sure most of you follow her blog, which is called Bring the Rain. I had pre-ordered the book from amazon.com and just received it last week! The first night I started reading it, I laid in bed and balled my eyes out...eventually having to make several trips to the bathroom for Kleenex. It's just touching...her way with words has a way of soothing your soul. You have GOT to read this book....seriously - what are you waiting for?? Go order it:)!!
