I have been wanting to watch You've Got Mail ever since a friend of mine shared a quote from the movie on facebook. So I was uber excited to see that the movie is on cable at least twice a week! So I recorded it and watched it two times!  I know I have watched it at least once in the past, but I really did not remember any of it.  So it was like watching a new movie all over again.

I also recently read a Robin Jones Gunn novel called echoes. I think I liked the book so much because it reminded me of the movie that I just watched.  I know lots of people who meet through the internet these days, but back when this book and movie came out, it was a little crazy to fathom! echoes is one of eight books in The Glenbrooke Series by Robin Jones Gunn.  

I love this quote from the book about life and all the crazy things that happen:

"You know sometimes we think something terrible is happening to us, and God is saying, 'Hey, relax, will ya?  I've got it covered.'  My dad used to say that we should never think for one minute that Almighty God is standing in heaven wringing his hands, and saying, 'Oh dear, oh dear! This wasn't supposed to turn out this way.'  God is in control.  All day, every day.  All the way."

I love knowing that God is in control of everything.  How we meet our spouse.  Where we get a new job.  What our kid does at school today.  When a beloved one gets sick.  Who comes into our lives. God is in control.  All day, every day.  All the way.

*I was provided a copy of this book in exchange for my review.  The opinions are mine.*
