What I Just Finished Reading

I have been trying to finish up reading some books that people have loaned me recently and return them to their rightful owners. I just read "Learning to Breath Again", by Tammy Trent. Honestly, I had not ever heard of her before this book and I have had it a couple of months at least. She is a musician/singer and also been a Women of Faith Speaker. But I decided to give it a try this week so the book can return home.

I must say it was a very good book. Ms. Tammy's husband died in Jamaica in a diving accident Sept 10 2001. Then 9/11/01 happened and made her days in another country even more difficult after the sudden loss of her husband. She tells of their love story, marriage, career and then about losing the love of her life - Trent - her husband. And then she tells of learning to breath or live after becoming a widow and how God has helped her every step of the way.

If you have the opportunity and enjoying reading I would recommend this book. However, I am reminded in life we never know what we will have to face or where life will take us. But we can always rest assured that if we are God's child He will not hurt or harm us. Or ever take us through anything that He is not right there with us. So I leave you with this scripture..

Isiah 43:1-3a
But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour...

Until next time

I Don't Know Where To Go

Over the last year or so I have gone through many things that I will not or cannot write about on the blog and many times I am just empty on what to post. I have been struggling with what to do with my blog. I just don't know which direction to take it. Do you have any ideas? I have thought about just canceling it, what is your thought?

I am not open to posting a lot of family pictures, or divulging a lot of family information. I feel this is way to dangerous for the world wide web. There is to much evil lurking around everywhere and I don't want to expose anyone of my family to any of that. I don't want this blog to be a place for gossip for anyone as I see happening in so many of the twitter and facebook accounts and blogs. I know they can be used for good but personally I am seeing way to much of how it is just a means to socialize with people one should not be socializing with. It monopolizes peoples time and they are always checking up on the lastest gossip and neglecting their families. Be careful!!!You might be neglecting those most important to you!!! Some can't drive, or carry on a conversation, or work, or accomplish any task without being tied to their phones. Is this really magnifying our Saviour!!!!

I don't want the blog to be all about me, that is not having a humble spirit or for me being obedient to HIM. My life is HIS, and my life is to be about HIM, I don't want or need to post about me.

So I don't know which way to go, I want my blog if I continue to always be around my Saviuor. I just don't know what angle to take for my very few readers. I have thought of cooking,and couponing but how do you turn that into HIM when it is all said and done over and over again. I have thought of some book reviews, daily devotions, the list could go on and on.

But I just don't have an angle at this time.

From a Child's Memory Verse

Last night at church one of the young men, I mean pre-school age, young quoted this scripture.

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.
Psalm 118:8

God spoke to me with this verse and reminded me that my trust needs to be in HIM and HIM alone.

In, With and Through Christ
