I Believe

I Believe
I got the idea for this post from Suburban Yogini

I believe everything happens for a reason, we just can't always see why.
I believe death is not the end. 
I believe actions speak louder than words
I believe that animals and children are excellent judges of character.
I believe that the God's Word is powerful
I believe that Jesus is the Son of God who loves us so much that He died for our sins and that one day He's coming again! 
I believe the best things in life are free
I believe there is good in every person you just have to look for it sometimes
I believe that people you love never really leave you.
I believe that I will always miss some people but I can take comfort in knowing I'll see them again someday. 
I believe that no one is as fat as they think they are. 
I believe that beauty magazines only make you feel ugly.
I believe that you should read directions even if you don't follow them. 

What are some things you believe?

Creature of Comfort

Creature of Comfort

Well I was supposed to be on vacation this week. Supposed to being the key word. Everything was going according to plan until last Tuesday. Last Tuesday my hubby came home sniffling and sneezing. No biggie I thought. I gave him some cold medicine and I thought that would take care of everything. I wish! By Thursday night he was coughing, and running fever. Great I though. My hubby hardly ever gets sick but he is now. By then I had decided to start taking an extra multivitamin, and disinfecting the whole house. I thought that would keep me from getting sick. WRONG! Sunday night I had a frog in my throat. I thought it was from all the gun powder from the fireworks however; by Monday morning I was also running a fever.  I couldn't believe it! This is the week I took off for vaction. Some of my friends and I had decided to take day-cations the whole week and explore the Houston area. I was so bumbed. Instead of looking at the renovated Moddy Gardens rainforest pyrmaid. I'm home living on chicken soup and watching  I Love Lucy. 
When I'm sick I become a creature of comfort. I quit being healty and crave my favorite things. It's almost like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I stay in my pajamas all day watching my favorite movies and eating soup. And housework...yeah let's not mention that. Thankfully, I washed hubby's work clothes before I got sick! :)  
When you are not feeling well what type of things comfort you?

Book Review: Unwilling Warrior: Seasons of Redeption Book 1

Book Review: Unwilling Warrior: Seasons of Redemption Book 1

Book Description:

The War Between the Sates has Valeria Fontaine frightened about her future. And when her wealthy father is charged with supplying Federal gunboats in order to save his shipping business, Valerie is suspected of conspiracy. Suddenly she's forced to flee her upscale New Orleans home or be taken into custody by Confederate troops. 
Benjamin McCabe has a noble dream to make his mark on the world and has decided that photographing the Civil War is the way to accomplish it. But since the Battle of Bull Run, his brother Luke has been missing and Ben is determined to find him. His stop in New Orleans is supposed to be a temporary one-until he meets and falls in love with Miss Valerie Fontaine. 
When Valerie's father is arrested, Ben secures a way for her to leave the city and travel to his family's home where she'll be safe. He promises that as soon as he finds Luke, he'll be home and they can begin their life together. But once Valerie steps off the train she finds herself caught up in a web of lies that threaten to imprison her more than Yankee Steel bars ever could. 

My Review: 

I read this book for Glass Road Public Relations. Unwilling Warrior is a Civil War romance. At the beginning of the book Psalm 55:22, "Cast they burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee." The theme of the book deals with casting all your cares upon the Lord and letting Him sustain you. The hero and heroine, Benjamin McCabe and Valerie Fontaine deal with countless trials from losing possessions, loved ones, as well bitterness and jealousy which force them to rely on the Lord. I love history particularly the time period of the Civil War. I love how the book weaves historical tidbits in with the plot. 
This book is a wonderful, delightful read. Once you start reading it you will be unable to put it down. I give the book 4 stars out of a possible four. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
