My Top 10 Christmas Wishes

Today I am linking up with Beth Zimmerman over at Beth: A Work in Progress for her Top Ten Thursday.This week she's asking us what top ten things we would want from Santa if we could get whatever we wanted.

Well I could certain use a magic sack from Santa this year. Usually I am all about the holidays. From decorating the whole house, to baking and making homemade gift. However due to all the recent craziness I'm just tired, sad and in pain. Oh yeah and not to mention broke. Since we are not staying at our house I'm not sure if we will have a tree. However, I did get out mini tree out hooked up today when I went home. I wish I could bring the tree back with me. I'm not sure what my mother in law would say about that. Anyways, here's my top ten Christmas wishes for 2011

1. That would get our house repaired quickly and we'd get settled back in.
2. I wish that my health would be totally and completely restored (I'm tired of being sick all the time!)
3. I wish our church would be healed and restored and being bring in the lost by sharing the love of Jesus with them.
4. I wish we could get this crazy mess regarding my student lans resolved soon (please pray)
5. I wish I was closer to my parents and siblings relationship wise.
6. I wish I could find a full time job somewhere so my husband wouldn't worry so much about finances and where I wouldn't have to more than one job just to make nds meet.
7. I wish we were able to have a child of our own.
8. I wish everyone would come to know the undconditonal love espcially the unconditional love of our Savior
9. I wish that time would heal all hearts.
10. (Beth this was excatly what I wanted to say but your way sounded better so I copied it :)  I wish for you, my precious friends … friends, followers, fame … but more than that … I wish you love! I wish the comforts of family, friends, home! I wish you faith! I wish that each of you would be touched by a special measure of grace this Christmas. Healing for those who are hurting. Peace for those who are sad. Calm for those in the storms of life. I wish you a touch of the Master’s hand. I wish you Jesus!

Book Review-A Question of Sovereignty (Allon Book 4)

About the Book:
He shall be Allon’s greatest king; of such a heritage as to rule Guardian and mortal alike – so says prophecy about the man to succeed Ellis, but he delays finding a husband for his daughter and heir, Ellan. Finally, he decides on Prince Sullivan of Gorham. Unknown, is that an age-old enemy is Sullivan’s mother and accompanies him to Waldron, while Ellan’s own ambition has waited for the right time to blossom. Ellan, Sullivan and his mother use subtlety to push the royal family to the brink. Even the Guardians are impacted by their dark machinations. Only Tristine and Darius suspect his mother’s identity. But their efforts to warn Ellis fail, reduces the Guardians in numbers and forces Tristine to flee Waldron. Determined to save her father, Tristine meets two unlikely allies: a blacksmith and a crippled beggar. But how can they stop a coup? And what will become of the Great King?           

My Review:
I have to admit, I doubted if Shawn Lamb could really keep the story going and interesting for 4 books. Well I was wrong! Yet again Shaw Lamb did an excellent job of keeping her readers engaged and entertained. Once I got started reading the book I couldn't put it down! I'm glad she answered some questions I had from previous books in the series.  I also love the suprises she puts in this book. I totally did not see some of them coming! Yet again Shawn Lamb has written another hit!

About the Author:
Shawn lives in Antioch, Tennessee, just outside Nashville with her husband of nearly 25 years and their college age daughter, Briana. Shawn pursued her love of writing and took it to a professional level, writing for the 1980s Filmation animated series "BRAVESTARR". Along the way, she won several screenwriting awards, including a Certificate of Merit from the American Screenwriters Association.

Taking the skills of writing for televison along with experience of working with kids and teens, she began work on the series ALLON. The results are stories of faith to believe and overcome obstacles, commitment to a cause, and the endurance to see it through to the end.
