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

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.
