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…

April Books (That are Coming in May)

The Rise of Nine
     This book is the third book in the I am Number Four serious.  I didn't really care for these books, I did love the fantasy feel and the teens coming together to save the planet, but I did not like how they cuss (which only seems to get worse by each book) and also the disrespect some of the characters had for one another.
     Slowly the Garde (the powerful teens whose planet was destroyed) begin to find each other and come together.  Number Four and Number Nine our together and Number Six and Number Seven are trying to locate Eight.  They may be getting stronger and closer together, but their enemy, the Mogs, are also strong with their powerful leader now on earth.  The Garde must hurry and be ready to fight the threat to all humanity.
     ~Like I said there is cussing in this book and some immature relationships and kissing going on~

The Fall of Five
Ok, so I tried to read the fourth book in the Lorien Legacies ^ but it didn't go so well.  I decided to stop reading it half way through.  It wasn't worth it.   The language was getting worse in each book and I couldn't handle the immorality of some of the situations. Just wanted to give you a heads up on that one.  Since I didn't read this one, I won't read the last book in the serious either.


Theodore Boone: The Abduction
This book is the fourth book in the Theodore Boone serious. I read the first three books a few years ago, when we first moved down to San Diego and I just remember loving them and thinking they were so good.  It's funny how much you change in four years.  My taste in books and my knowledge in writing  has all changed and these once awesome books are now just ok, childish books.
There was nothing bad in this book, except for, in my opinion the lack of respect Theo had for adults. 
The book had some adventure and some fun and smart info in it, but it just wasn't the same as it would have been four years ago.
