In everything Give Thanks!

Where has this year gone? Its already Thanksgiving... a time to count our blessing and give thanks.   I am reminded of the Scripture in the Bible :

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
I Thess. 5:18

In every thing give thanks!  I am so thankful for all the blessing the Lord has shown our family.  I am blessed to have a wonderful husband, and two beautiful daughters.  I have a wonderful church family and friends.  I am  a blessed Lady!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Remembering Chirstmas

This is another heart warming Christmas story!  This book will captivate you and keep you reading.  Rick Denton  never thought he wanted to come home again, but with one phone call , he is back in the small home town that will change his life forever.  What a heart warming story... you'll just love it!

Happy Reading Everyone!

 Can one Christmas change a life forever?
Rick Denton lives his life on his terms. He works hard, plays hard, and answers to no one. So when his mother calls begging him to come home after his stepfather has an aneurysm, Rick is more than a little reluctant. What was supposed to be just a couple days helping out at the family bookstore turns into weeks of cashing out old ladies and dealing with the homeless guy who keeps hanging around the store. The one bright spot is the lovely and intriguing young woman who works at his side each day.
As Christmas nears, Rick's old life beckons, the hurts from his past loom large, and the decisions he makes will determine more than just where he spends Christmas Eve.
With skillful storytelling, Dan Walsh creates a Christmas story that will have you remembering every good and perfect gift of Christmas.
"I love a story with some unexpected twists--not to mention a quirky cast of characters who surprise and delight me. I think that's the perfect recipe for a true Christmas classic. Dan has penned such a tale, and I heartily recommend it to readers who want a reminder of why Christmastime is so special."--Melody Carlson, author, Christmas at Harrington's and The Christmas Shoppe

The Christmas Shoppe

The small town of Parrish Springs is not quite ready for Matilda Honeycutt.
A strange older woman with scraggly gray hair and jewelry that jangles as she walks, Matilda is certainly not the most likely person to buy the old Barton Building on the town's quaint main street. When it becomes apparent that her new shop doesn't fit the expectations of Parrish Springs residents, a brouhaha erupts. After all, Christmas is approaching, and the last thing the town needs is a junky shop run by someone who looks and acts like a gypsy. But as townsfolk venture into the strange store, they discover that old memories can bring new life and healing.
Once again, Melody Carlson delivers a Christmas story that will touch hearts and delight the senses. Sure to be a classic, The Christmas Shoppe is filled with the special magic the best Christmas stories share—that intangible mixture of nostalgia, joy, and a little bit of magic. 

The Christmas season is so busy that if you are like me you hardly get the time to just sit and relax with a great book.  This book is just it!   This book will bring you back to what Christmas should be all about!

I AM in Here... book review

I am in Here, is written by Elizabeth M. Bonder, who has autism, and her Mother Virginia.  This book in a way,  is the story of Elizabeth's life.  You will find many, many insightful poems,  and encouraging words  written by a young lady who struggles with this autism.

God loves us all

It does not matter who you are
It does not matter if you stray far
God is always there for you
In spite of what you may do
His love is stronger than anyone can know
you just have to know to go
to God.

Elizabeth wrote this poem at the age of 9! Wow!..... she wanted people to know the power of Faith.  
She has so much insight  for such a young child... 

This book also shows the reader the challenges and frustrations that Elizabeth faces. 

What an inspiration Elizabeth is!  I recommend this book to all my friends... 

Available October 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.

Scripture of the Month

1 Thessalonians 5:24
Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

He is faithful to do all He has promised in his Word. I'm so glad that he is faithful to meet our needs and to give us our wants. There is no one Greater than OUR LORD and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!
