Last night I was reading along in one of my new favorite books Brisingr by Christopher Paolini. The story was gripping and I couldn't stop reading. I read way too late last night, but it was worth it. In books like this, I don't usually expect to come across an idea or thought that unknowingly expresses something beautiful, but this quote made me pause in the middle of thrilling tale and wonder at what I have in Christ.
"To know that you were with one who cared for you, and who understood every fiber of your being, and would not abandon you in even the most desperate circumstances, that was the most precious relationship a person could have."

That's a great quote. You must-need write it in our quote book. It's been so long since anyone has done that.

That is wonderful. In class my teacher was talking about people who have a intimate connection with someone else. I thought of my parents but I can see the same concept applies to God!
