Happy to be invited!

Post by dmm142 » Wed Mar 01, 2017 4:12 am

Hello everyone,
I am from Youngstown, Ohio and so happy to be a part of this forum! My husband and I are married (25 years) and we have 2 grown sons so we are basically at the empty nest phase. It has hit me hard. This book becoming a movie gave me something to look forward to as my days are filled with fighting depression :cry: So I read the book again and also bought the The Shack Revisted" version and have given several copies of the original away.
Looking forward to great conversations!
Doreen

It is hard, but as a pastor I will say that you will bet over it. How? They come back!!!! My kids all went to college, graduated, got good jobs and decided to move back into town. Now, though my kids aren't living with us, the grandchildren seem to. So the nest refills with the next generation. LOL!!!

And then the grandkids leave for college. That is where I'm at. My other grandkids are in Alaska.

Doreen I'm glad are here.

I have found out that there are a lot of children at my church and in my neighborhood who just love us and want to be around us. Showing them love and sharing our lives with them makes them sort of substitute grandchildren. Keeps us young in body and heart as well.

I count it an honor to be associated with The Shack. I read this book and it help me to take God out of a box and allow Him to be a God and not a glorified man. This book and the people associated with it bless me. Thank you for inviting me to be a part. I am forever indebted to you spiritually.
