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

Forest Born

This book is from the same author (Shannon Hale) of Princess Academy and yet another book that I really enjoyed.

The fourth book in The Books of Bayern series ( I have yet to read the first three, but hope to do that soon), this one is about a forest born girl named Rin.
Rin is the youngest child of seven and the only girl.  As she gets older she becomes Ma's shadow and a girl who turns to the trees for comfort.  Until one day the trees seem to reject her and she finds no peace in them, but rather depression and heartache. Nothing seems right any more and she doesn't know what to do.  When her brother Razo returns to the city she goes with him, hoping to find herself out there.  While there she goes on an adventure that will change her life and mood.

~This book had one particular kiss that I did not like, but other than that I remember it being rather clean.~

One thing I got from this book is that words can hurt, whether it's a magical power you possess or just plain you, a sinner with or without Christ, you can hurt someone with your words.  It could be small or simple, but to that one person it is a slap to the face.  Words can uplift too and bring good.  But we need to think before we speak and choose are words wisely.
