The Daily Question

Simple Way to Reflect on Life and Faith  This keepsake daily journal prompts you to record what is happening in your heart and spirit. The short questions at the top of each page are quick to answer—but their impact could be life changing! You’ll go back and answer the same question a year later for five years in a row, creating a time capsule of soul transformation. With questions about… ·  your view of yourself (“What three words would people use to describe you?”), ·  your view of God (“What attribute of God are you thankful for today?”), ·  your current circumstances (“Who do you wish you could talk to today?”)

Convicted - A true story

Jameel McGee: “ For the next three years not a day went by that I didn’t think about my son who I had never seen and the cop who had kept me from him. And for most of those three years I promised myself that if I ever saw this cop again, I was going to kill him. I intended to keep that promise.”  Andrew Collins:  “I watched this angry man march through a crowd, a little boy and another man struggling to keep up with him....The man walked straight up to me, stopped, and stuck out his hand. I took it. “Remember me?” he asked in a tone that sounded more like a threat than a question.  Somehow, a name came to me. ‘Jameel McGee,’ I replied.”

Sickness and Other Stuff

Today the sun came out, and I am thankful... I Stood there for a while this morning, just basking in the sunshine shining in my kitchen window, soaking it up and thanking the Lord for the break in the rain, even if just for a day, a few hours, as it is already raining again. It felt good! It has been a bit of a winter for us... And I have not managed very well at all to stay on top of things on the blog as I would have liked. I am running so far behind on my reviews it is embarrassing.  Not as much on the ones that have specific deadlines, but those that don't seem to end up on the back burner of all the other things that became the urgent.

The Masterpiece by Francine Rivers

New York Times  bestselling author Francine Rivers returns to her romance roots with this unexpected and redemptive love story, a probing tale that reminds us that mercy can shape even the most broken among us into an imperfect yet stunning masterpiece. A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want—money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman’s past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn’t know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist—an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison.
