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.

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?
