Hi LvlyRspbrry!

So what did you think of it. You can PM me if you'd like.

I finished the book a few days ago.

Yes I finish reading the book while I was in the mountains for a few days. I found the book very interesting, especially being a christian that believes in the Holy Spirit and listening to what it tells you,which is what I think he did. It was I think God's way of giving him closure. His faith might not have been that strong to begin with but by the end I'm sure it was! What is your thoughts?

Hi Lvly,

yes, I do believe in the Holy Spirit. And btw, you do know that the book is fictional right?

There is a website that tells you more about the author and about the book. Go to, if you haven't already done that.

Thanks for sharing with me.

I was blessed by the book in ways I didn't expect. Then again, I read it with an open mind and heart. I just thought at the start that it was based on a true story.

Nonetheless, there are some things that really stood out to me. For example, the talk about expectancy, rather than expectations;
that has really stayed with me.

Thanks, Lvly.

I didn't want to go on and on about the book on this thread, so if there's any further things you want to talk about, so you can PM me. You understand, right? In fact, how about a thread about the book we just read. Who knows who else read it and what their thoughts are about it, so maybe you can create a post/thread on the book.

"My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself. The fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. I hope that I have that desire in all I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart for that desire. I know that if I do this, you will lead me by the right road even though I may know nothing about it. Therefore, will I trust you always, even though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me. You will never leave me to face my perils alone"("Thoughts in Solitude", by Thomas Merton)
Have a wonderful day.

Only God can turn a MESS into a MESSage,
a TEST into a TESTimony,
a TRIal into a TRIumph,
a VICTim into a VICTory.

Peace is not the absence of trouble,
but the Presence of Christ.
- Shiela Walsh -

The best things in life can never be kept;
They must be given away, a smile, a kiss and love.
