My Community Group had a White Elephant book exchange tonight. I assumed it was to exchange good books, so I took my new copy of Soul Cravings by Erwin Raphael McManus. I was hoping to use it as a daily devotional in the next few weeks. However I didn't know tonight was the book exchange and quickly ran home and grabbed the first book I saw.
Surely I would receive a book worth reading in return, right?
Apparently we were supposed to exchange gag books that have been buried at the bottom of our bookshelves.
I ended up with The Jungle by Upton Sinclair.
Now I'll never know what my soul craves, instead I can have an unhealthy fear that the meat I purchase at the local HEB is going to kill me.
