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

Princess Academy: Palace of Stone

This is the sequel to the Princess Academy which I read a few years ago and really loved.  I had been wanting to read this book for a while and I was just able to find it at the library.
I liked it, it was a cute and clean story.  Centered more for younger kids, but still fun and easy to read.
It is a fantasy about a girl named Miri, who comes from a small village in the mountains.  There was a time when they weren't welcome any where else, but a trading route was open to them and so were other things, such as education and wealth.  Miri and a few of her friends go to the city for the princess, Miri's best friend's marriage.  But there is much more going on then just a wedding.  Many people aren't happy with the king and the nobles for their treatment to the poor, so a war is brewing and Miri get's in the middle of it.  Will she be able to pick between her love for her best friend, the princess, or the rights of the poor people?
