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

Goose Girl
Ani, princess of Kildenree traveled from her kingdom to Bayern, where she must marry the prince to make peace between the two kingdoms.  But on the way, her one and only friend betrays her, along with half of her trusted guards.  She escaped the close death from their hands and traveled the rest of the way by herself.  But when she gets to the kingdom her once dear friend is posing as her.  No one will believe she is the true princess so she takes a job at the palace as the goose girl, but what will become of her?  She is supposed to be marring the prince and now she is just a peasant girl.
~There was one thing in this book that I didn't appreciate. One character was telling a story abut war and how the warriors wives wanted them to look at them only...  It is only one quick page, but still.~
This is the first book of the Bayern serious and a really fun and adventures story!

River Secret
This is the third book in Bayern serious.  Not as fun and interesting as the first in my opinion, but still good and adventurous.
This book is about Razo who is a forest born and is chosen to go on an adventure to make peace with the Tiran, who are pursuing war.  It isn't looking great for the group who will be traveling up there to make peace and death is very possibly for them all.
Razo isn't the greatest soldier and it surprises him to be chosen at all to help with the quest.  But he hopes to prove himself useful on this trip, but can he do that since all his life he has been nothing but small and weak?
~I can't remember anything being too interesting in this book, there were a few relationships and gross deaths.~
