Thankfulness & God's Faithfulness

I'm so very thankful for this year.  God has always been so faithful to me.  He's protected me, loved me, and given my joy in hard times.  I remember this time last year, I did not want to celebrate any Holidays.  I did not want to celebrate Thanksgiving or Christmas.  I had a heart that wasn't ready to move on or let go.  I had a stubborn heart, one that wasn't willing to listen or heal.  I had a broken heart, one that was not allowing me to be thankful for yet another year.  Even then God provided ways for me to heal and the space I needed, in providing opportunities to stay home for Thanksgiving and to be traveling all through Christmas and New Years.  God was so good to me.  Today I look back and think of just how far God has taken me.  I'm thankful He protected me from a very bad situation and gave me healing in that.  I'm thankful He took me far away from two really hard circumstances and allowed me to start over.  I look back over this last year and the h

Amish Books

The Healing~
This book was about a Samuel Fisher and Esther Beiler, who both are struggling with what to do next in life.
Samuel had just lost his wife and moved, with his four children to a new place.  He struggles with raising his children and moving on in life.
Esther's parents left her, so they could go help her brother who was sick.  She is now all alone, making her own decisions.
She watches Samuel kids for him and she learns to love them and soon Samuel also.  But jealousies arise and it looks like Samuel could never love her back.
Will these two ever find happiness again?

The Reckoning~
Katie Fisher had found her birth mother, left her Amish life behind, and began to live in the big city with all the things she had missed as a Plain Girl.
But could she really be happy in such a place.  Doubts and memories start to arise and Katie no longer knows what to do with her life.  She could continue to live in her mother's big house and marry a man who seemed interested in her.  Or she could go back home and marry the man whom she loved long ago.
This book was good and better than the book, The Healing, because it gave more details about what the Amish believes, and the difference of their believes than what the Bible really teaches.
