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

Books for school

So I have read a few books for school that I did not have time to write a review on at the moment, but, well here it goes. 


Les miserable: 
So this book took me 'forever' to read. It was over 2,000 pages long and not to mention went on and on about the smallest things. I read it all so that is saying something. If I really couldn't stand it then I would have put it down.   Besides being very long, I could follow the story pretty well. I found myself enjoying certain things and people of the story. All in all it was a story about a convict named Jean Valjean and what he did to make a difference in his life. 


Wonder: 
We read this book out loud and I just have to say it was amazing. It had most of us in tears. It was about a young boy named August, who was deformed. It's a story about how he tries to fit into a world that can be so cruel. It is his first year in school. Not only does he have to worry about the struggles that a normal middle schooler faces, but also the stares, the evil comments, and the plain fact that most don't want anything to do with him. This book was really awesome!  

Purity:
This book was ok. I got some good things about purity. Things like purity isn't only on the outside, but also on the inside. It was a small and easy book to read and I am glad I did, though, I don't find these kinds of books all that helpful sometimes. Sometimes just a little overwhelmed with things that are just impossible for us, as sinners, to do. Though it is a thought provoking book. 



Pay it Forward: 
We just finished this book as another read-out-loud and again it was a really sweet story. It was about a boy, named Trevor, who got a school assignment, that had them think and try to put into action a way to change the world.   Trevor comes up with the idea of paying it forward. You do something really big for someone and instead of getting paid for it, they have to pay it forward (do something big) to three other people. Trevor does this only to find out that it is a lot harder than he thought it would be. Will he even be able to find someone who will pay it forward and will it even make a difference?

Eragon:
Ok, so I started reading this book for fun a few months ago. I powered though thinking I could do it and finish it, but it was taking me a very long time and was dragging along so I finally put it done with only 100 pages left in the story. I finally decided to try to finish it for school instead and that's what I did. 
This is a fantasy story about a boy named Eargon who finds a dragon egg. He hides the dragon, but soon evil men find out about it and try to destroy him and the dragon. Along with a serious of other events and things he travels a long the land seeking revenge for the death if his uncle.
