Faith and doubt are both needed -- 
not as antagonists, but rather, working side by side 
to take us around the unknown curve.

Scripture Study

Genesis 3:17-19

And unto Adam he said, Because thou hast hearkened unto the voice of thy wife, and hast eaten of the tree, of which I commanded thee, saying, Thou shalt not eat of it: cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow shalt thou eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall it bring forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it was thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.

All or Nothing Day

Celebrating by reading!

The tenth novella in the series...

Welcome back to Holiday, USA, small town America, where nothing happens, except holidays... and a little romance, if the hero and heroine trust God.

Secrets? Angela Goodrich owns a few. Moving to Holiday is her dream come true. As Holiday Sweets' new manager, she wants a fresh start even as she wants to share the truth of who she is. Will she still be welcomed?

Anger issues? Caleb Bronson denies it despite the fact he'd like to throttle his EMT partner's new fiancé for wronging his sister. What does it matter if his anger is dominating his life and spills over on the attractive and newest resident of Holiday?

The truth will set you free, if you're willing to endure the discomfort of letting go of the lies. God knows the pain hidden in the soul anyway...


Also published in paperback Holiday, USA Anthology 2016-17

Love is not affectionate feeling
but a steady wish
for the loved person's
ultimate good
as far as it can be obtained.

Favorite Book Friday

Sgt. Reckless: America's War Horse by Robin Hutton history. I read about Reckless on the blog Horse Addict. I put several books on my Wish List, uncertain which one was best. Last April, I had the opportunity to see the new monument placed at the Lexington Kentucky Horse Park. I cried. This book was in the gift shop, the perfect memento. I learned more about the Korean War in the book than I'd learned in all the rest of my life. I've been a horse lover all my life and never heard of Reckless. What a remarkable story. A keeper.

Scripture Study

Genesis 3:14-15

And the Lord god said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life: and I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Favorite Book Friday

Randy (Sisters by Design series Book 2) by Sharon Srock Christian romance. This was a trough read, for me, bringing back too many memories. I identified with Randy on so many levels. The story referenced Psalms 27, and I read it. I read to the end and glad I did. It's a keeper.

Monday Quote

"We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms -- to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way."
