I was at Nathan's last concert a few nights ago and as I was getting up to leave I noticed a small bag with this book in it. I looked around to see who it might belong to, but they were gone. I had no idea who had sat behind me. SO, I brought it home. I am half way through this book, its a real page turner. Have any of you read this?

Here is a summery of this book:
On the way home from a conference, Don Piper's car was crushed by a semi that crossed into his lane. Medical personnel said he died instantly. While his body lay lifeless inside the ruins of his car, Piper experienced the glories of heaven,awed by its beauty and music.
Ninety minutes after the wreck, while a minister prayed for him, Piper miraculously returned to life on earth with only the memory of inexpressible heavenly bliss. His faith in God was severly tested as he faced an uncertain and grueling recovery. Now he shares his life changing story with you.
90 minutes in Heaven offers a glimpse into a very real dimension of God's reality. It encourages those recovering from serious injuries and those dealing with the loss of a loved one. The experience dramatically changed Piper's life and it will change yours too.

I found this book Monday night and finished it last night, it was that good. Makes me wonder a bit WHY I found it, but glad i did. Mr. Piper now lives in Galveston about two hours from where I am now, so alot of the Houston area that he mentions is familiar. I think what I have gotten from reading this is just that we really need to accept God's NO better than we do. Mr. Piper mentions that he prayed so hard to go back to heaven because his recovery was so hard. He later had to see and accept that God had a plan in letting him experience all he had. Also, heaven is more than we can ever imagine and maybe by letting people experience just a glimpse we will strive harder to get there.

I work at a Christian bookstore and see that one all the time; I haven't picked up a copy yet, but everyone I have talked to about it LOVE it.

Well according to the card its called a Barbara Karst Bougainvillea. It blooms red and attracts hummingbirds. Haven't seen any of those yet but squirrels sure dig around in it. Pesky critters!
