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.  
But feelin…

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.~
