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

Books from March (Pt. 1)

The Power of Six
The Second book in the Lorien Legacies serious and a really fun and adventurous book.  I read the first one a couple of weeks ago, I am Number Four, and really liked that book also. 
John Smith must leave Paradise, Ohio now, because of all the destruction. He, Six, and Sam leave  hoping to find the other four and along the way hid from those who are searching for them.  Not only do they have to hid from Mogdorians, but also the authorities of the US who think they are terrorist.
Number Seven is also hoping to reunite with the others, but can't leave the convent until she is 18.  She is stuck feeling hopeless and useless, with no training and a distracted guardian, who was suppose to train her to battle the Mogdorians.
~There is cussing in this serious and also a lot of drama centered around relationships and going back and forth between liking this girl and that girl.  There is some flirting and kissing (one kiss in particular that I didn't like and feel was inappropriate). 

I really liked this book!  It reminds me a lot like The Giver, where the people are controlled by the Officials who choose who you marry, what you will eat, where you will work, and how long you will live. Though in this book they do have feelings. 
Cassia is happy and content with her life and trust everything to the Officials, until she sees two different faces for her match.  She now is face with a hard decision that won't go away, will she marry Xander or Ky?  The Officials never make mistakes and Xander is suppose to be her Match, but her feelings for Ky are budding...
The whole society seems to fall apart for Cassia and the once perfect life, where the Officials make the decisions for her, isn't so perfect anymore.
