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

The Hunger Games

Katniss has always had a hard life, ever since her father died.  She had to hunt for food, trying to keep her sister, her mother, and herself alive.  Life became a routine for her, hunting with her friend Gale and then brining that home to help feed all the hungry people in their district. But that changes the day of the reaping when her young sister, the only person she truly loves now that her father is gone, Prim, is called as the girl of their district to fight in the hunger games. Katniss offers to go in for her, leaving her home and family, mostly likely never to return.  But her last promise to her sister is to try very hard to make it back.
 Peeta is also chosen from their district, but Katniss hardly knows him except as the boy who saved her life because of his kindness in giving her food when she was close to death.
After all the fuss and training Katniss is soon in the arena fighting for her life.  Will she make it out alive even though everything and everyone seems against her? 
I really enjoyed this book!


Catching Fire~
This is the second book in the Hunger Games.  Katniss has lived through the Hunger Games and made history with bringing Peeta out with her also, the first time two people have ever came out alive.  But the capital thinks she has rebelled and she has to prove to the other districts that she was madly in love with Peeta, instead of rebelling against the capital, or her family will die.  But the districts have already started an uprising and nothing can stop that...so as to teach everyone a lesson and to remind them who is the strongest, the capital brings Katniss and the other districts remaining victors back into the arena.  And now chances for Katniss coming out alive again seem impssoible so she puts all her strength into saving Peeta and to make sure he gets out alive. 
I really enjoyed this book also!
