girl meets GOD

I just finished reading girl meets GOD by Lauren Winner. Which is kind of random since I got the book in October 2005 from my college pastor at Bentley. It's a signed copy actually, I couldn't make it to Lauren's presentation so my awesome pastor bought me the book. But you know how college goes: school, swimming, work, travel, summers get in the way and I finally four years later sat down and read it. The book blew my mind. I'm usually not a fan of Christian reading or girlie book reading for that matter. But her passion for books and her geeky side comments made it totally worth it. I've learned so much about God and Jewish history from this book I feel like I could hold some serious ground talking about my faith with a Jew. I rarely feel this about authors but I would love to be Lauren's friend. For some reason I feel as though we have a lot in common:
  1. found faith / relationship with Christ on our own (minimal parental involvement)
  2. have tattoos
  3. geekily obsessed with books (take me to a Borders/Powells and you'll see what I mean)
  4. get side tracked by side comments, yet some how manage to bring it back into context
Anyways, I highly suggest the book. Let me know if you want to borrow it sometime.

What good book did you recently finish?

“Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the LORD” (Leviticus 19:28)

just in case you're a fan of the old testament :)

Leviticus has a lot of rules in it. Thank God, I have Christ to take away some of those things. Also in the O.T. they talk about peircings as being okay.

God and I are cool with my tattoo. I'm kind of hoping I'll still have it on my spiritual body in Heaven...

do you have a picture of your tattoo? I'm trying to find someone to draw me something at the moment. I want it belowe the neck and to stretch from clavicle to clavicle. Something that shows my light and dark side...

tough decision
