The Hiding Place

It's Lent, and I am resolved to do more reading and less "screen watching".  I recently finished The Hiding Place, by Corrie Ten Boom.  This is a moving account of two Christian sisters' experience at a Nazi concentration camp.

Read the book to discover why Corrie was eventually able to thank God, "even for the fleas" that were ever-present and relentless in the sleeping area at Ravensbruck.  Borrow it, or buy it.  You won't be able to put it down.

That anyone survived the horrible conditions described in this book is remarkable.  What happens after the war is even more unbelievable--Corrie explains how she was able to forgive her persecutors.  The book has reminded me to thank God for every precious moment, and to strive always to remain "in the center of His will".
