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

~One of my new favorite books~

I just finished reading this book called the Healers Apprentice.  I really liked it.  It is one of my new favorite books!
I have been pretty busy lately that I haven't been able to read much and also because a tiny thing called 'not finding any books I found interesting'. 
But for a couple a weeks I get to take it easy and read...I hope! 
I was so excited when I got this book (I had been wanting to get it for a while, but I couldn't find it at the library so I had to buy it and thanks to birthday and Christmas money I bought it a couple days ago!)
It was perfect...a book genre that I had totally missed reading!  Romance and Fantasy...
I did try reading this book called Inkspell a sequel to Inkheart (which they made a movie of) last week, but it was so long and dragging, I couldn't' finish it.  It was also a fantasy.  So yeah, I crossed those books of my list this week! :)
So, back to The Healers Apprentice. 
It is about a girl named Rose who is the apprentice to the physician in the land, but she doesn't actually fit well in the position, because she gets queasy at the sight of blood and can't stich properly. 
Duke Wilhelm is betrothed, but he must save his betrothed from the evil Moncore before he can marry her or even see her.
Rose's and Duke Wilhelm's paths intervene and the two became friends.  But Rose is a mere peasant girl and Wilhelm a Duke who is betrothed.  Is there a way for the two of them to be together? 
This book was written by a Christian author and demonstrates the sheer truth that there is a spiritual battle going on around us and that we must lean and wait on Christ and He will direct our steps and do what is good for us.
There was romance in this book, a few passionate kisses, hugs and thoughts, but other then that it is a decent book, if I remember correctly!
