The Battle Between Truth & Feelings

"The worst battle I've ever fought is between what I knew and what I felt."How true is this?  Emotions and feelings can feel so like truth.  They can be so blinding, leading us on a goose chase to get what we think (feel) we need.  They become the thing we live for and strive after.  They can lead you away from good friendships, from the truth you grew up learning, running from good and clear counsel.  It's so dangerous to chase after your feelings, believe them to be truth over everything else- over true wisdom, truth, honesty, true love and friendship, and blind you to follow after the worlds version of truth or what your heart wants.  How scary is that. 
What we know is truth...
We know as believers that God's word is the only source of truth.  It is our anchor, our truth, what we live by.  When the world feeds us lies and these half-truths fueled to feed our sinful desires, we can always turn to God's word to lead us and guide us in our lives.

Mr. Turept Falls Again

We just finish reading Mr. Turept Falls Again for read-out-loud for school.  This book was the sequel to Because of Mr. Turept (the last book we read for read-out-loud) which we all really loved, because it was a cute and sad story.
This one was a bit disappointing.  It had the same characters, same scenes, but added drama.
First of all this book is about sixth graders though it seems like, with the kids thoughts, deeds and words that they are more like high-school aged kids.  There were things in there that were inappropriate for the ages of the kids who would be reading them and details that children shouldn't be worried or even be thinking about.
The plot was cute and touching, but not comparable to the first one, 'Because of Mr. Turept'.
