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

A Light to My Path

This book was in the perspective of  two slaves during the Civil War. 
Grady who was sold from his mother at a young age and was sold and betted on.  His life had been filled with misery and hatred for the white men and he wanted revenge.
Kitty's whole life had been filled with serving Missy Claire, that she knew no better.  She was treated better than most of the slaves, but she was still treated as an animal.  She believed that she was no better than a slave and did as her mistress asked her without compliant.
Grady was mad at God, thinking He only cared about the white men.
Kitty didn't think anything of God, because He had done nothing for her and she thought so little of herself.
Will Grady ever forgive the white men for what they had done to him?  Will he ever allow God to rule His life?
Will Kitty see that she is more than just a slave...more than just an animal in the sight of white men?  Will she see her need for God?
I really liked this book.  Even though it was hard to see how the slaves were treated, but the perspective was good and the gospel was shared pretty good, I thought!
This book was the third book in the Refiners Fire serious.  One was in the perspective of the south and the other of the north.
These books were really good!
Warning:
This book was filled with some awkward moments of intimacy. The book was in the slaves perspective and they were treated very horribly in this way.  It does not say too much or go into too much details, but it is there.
