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

Uncle Tom's Cabin

This book was long and slow but it was filled with good detail about slavery.  It told of the horrible things people would do to their salves and though all salve owners weren't bad most of them treated their salves worse than animals. 
This book was really sad as I read how Uncle Tom was sold from his wife and young children to a new owner far away.  And how they feared they would never see each other again.
And then there was Eliza who was not able to live with her own husband because he belonged to a different master.  And then she overheard her owner say that he was going to sell her young son.  She made a desperate move and ran away.  But would she be able to get to Canada before they found her?
This book was a hard book to read but a good one because of the tales it tells...and how God worked through the salves and salve owners!
