Fourth of July Poem

I wrote this poem for Associated Content. This is the first time I've ever written a poem. It's a lot harder than I thought. I'd love to know what you think. I hope you like it. 

Red, White and Blue
America so true
Red for blood split by those who sacrificed all for our freedom. All gave some and some gave all. 
White for the sea foam from the ocean that sou rounds land from shore to shore. Peace and Prosperity. 
Blue for the sky that connects our great land. Proud to be brave, strong and free
Fireworks, food, friends and fun. Stop and think that the fourth means just a bit more

Book Review: God and Stephen Hawking

I am reviewing this book for Litfuse Publicity  Group

 Book Review:
 The Grand Design, by eminent scientist Stephen Hawkings, is the latest blockbusting contribution to the "New Atheist" debate, and claims that the laws of physics themselves brought the universe into being, rather than God. In this swift and forthright reply, John Lennox, Oxford mathematician and author of God's Undertaker, takes a closer look at Hawking's logic.

In lively, layman's terms, Lennox guides us through the key points in Hawkings arguments-with clear explanations of the latest scientific and philosophical methods and theories and demonstrates that far from disproving a Creator God, they make his existence seems all the more probable.

My Review :
I have to admit I was intimidated when I first recived this book for review. I do not consider myself a scholar by any means. I decied to participate in the book review because I remembered my husband reading one of Stephen Hawking's books. I like the fact that it is a short book but the shortnessness of pages does not mean it has no debth. I found this book very easy to read. Lennox did a wonderful job of explaining complex theories in layman's terms. Although I did have to read a few passages twice to fully comprehend what was being discussed. I think this book will help many with the terminology being used by those who believe in only science and reason. I am hoping to reread this book soon with my husband so we can dissicus the theories presented in this book.
I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to sharpen their faith and help understand current scientific and logical theories.

Book Review: Forever After by Deborah Raney

I am reviewing this book for Glass Road Public Relations

Book Description:

When a fire destroys a homeless shelter, Jenna Morgan looses her husband and Lucas Vermontez looses his father.  Jenna struggles emotionally and financially as she tries to assemble the broken pieces of her heart and life.  Her marriage to Zach was not based on love and her mother-in-law’s meddling just causes additional stress to her life.  Jenna is trying to handle her grief on her own, apart from God.
Lucas, a Christian, was Jenna’s husband’s best friend.   When Luc helps her move and invites her out for a bite to eat, he shares the peace he has found in the Lord.  With her roots in poverty, Jenna collapses the mirage she has lived with Zach’s family, and finds her authentic self .  Luc shows her that even though she may not have had love growing up in a fatherless home, God’s love through Jesus will give her a love forever after.  Can these two find new reasons to live and love ?
My Review
Like the first book in this series, “Forever After” delves into the topics of forgiveness and faith. I alaways like it when the story points the readers to Christ. 
I thought the story was predictiable and at spots very slow. Overall I would recomend it as a light , relazing read.
