Last week on FYFA (and in my life):
I know it’s been sparse around here, guys. I have to confess that I’m not doing well after Tuesday’s elections—like, I cry at least three times a day at the state of our country—and I couldn’t bring myself to do anything book or blogging related at all. Finally, yesterday, I did post my review of Heartless because I’d made a promise to the publisher that I would get it up this week and I didn’t want to break that promise. (And, by the way, it was amazing, so finishing it up was a slight relief at bedtime the past couple nights when my mind would have otherwise been racing.)
I’m feeling a little more hopeful today, mainly because I went to church last night and just worshipped and tried hard to remind myself that just because we humans are completely messed up doesn’t mean that God isn’t listening. I know a lot of you don’t want to hear that right now because you’re pretty much not trusting the Christian viewpoint on anything. I get that, and I’m certainly not going to sit here and preach—not after the week we’ve had.
I only posted one thing on Facebook this week, and I thought I’d share it here because I want those of you read my blog to know what I stand for:
I’m not going to post my usual Sunday Post filled with giveaways and book hauls. I just can’t do it yet. Next week, I think I’ll be back to (semi)normal form.
For this week, I just want to say, be good to yourselves. Be good to the people around you. Show love. Nothing is more important right now.
