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

There's something so very compelling about stories like this one. Here is a real live person, experiencing a real life tragedy like none most of us will ever face, with a real life encouragement for living out the life God's given. Such a hopeful thing.
