Is it time to grab a bite? I know just the perfect place!

Well, my body is quickly showing me that three meals a day just won't do it for me. Most of the time I don't do three a day. Most days I'm good with maybe one meal and a few snacks to hold me over. That might be where the problem is occurring. But we are all different. Some love that big breakfast to start the day and a small meal for dinner. Whatever is good for you!

As I have been having problems  with my health and having testing done to get down to the problem, I am learning that if I eat small meals throughout the day I feel much better. Now, I'm not talking about eating junk as I pass by in the kitchen. Although that is tempting. I am speaking of filling my appetite with good nutritious foods that will give me energy and boost my brain function. LOL If I am not eating properly my body is not going to function well at all. I am most likely going to be hunting then for something to eat as my body begins to shake and my head starts to pound. That is where the junk comes in view. It's easy to grab, isn't it? Sure, it might hit the spot for that moment, but later I am only going to be feeling worse as that blast of sugar hits me and down I go.

Life in the Word is the same. We need the Good Word all throughout the day. Little spurts of His goodness to fill us and give us the power we need to make it through the day. It's when I have His reminder all throughout the day where I begin to re-charge full blast ahead.

If I fill up on junk I am going to crash at the end of the day only to wish I had started my day out right. God's Word is a meal that will hold you over and keep you fueled until the next. It's a start to your day and a pick me up throughout and as the day ends it's time to re-charge for tomorrow. It can be a slow, sit down restaurant with candle light as He shares His love story with you or it can be like a fast food pit stop, but with healthy choices and just the right portions. 

However you want to do it, God is all for spending time with you. He is all for making the date and setting the time and place. All we have to do is show up! He will meet you right where you are, my friend. He is good with those long dinners where the conversation keeps moving. He too loves those little times during the day where you reach for a snack to hold you over. He wants to keep you full in His Word. He too wants you to return over and over again. He wants it to be your favorite stop for fuel for the day and the place you tell everyone to go to because you just love it so.  

"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work."
2 Timothy 3:16

The One True Love of Alice-Ann by Eva Marie Everson

Oh, just where do I begin? This is the stuff in which great novels are made. I made my way through this richly beautiful novel turning page after page with such deep emotion and thought. I couldn't turn the pages quick enough, but I didn't want it to end to soon. It's one of those novels you could continue reading as long as there were pages. No page just made of fluff, words with no meaning on the page. Every single line in this novel created a story that will last in my heart forever. 
Ms. Everson, I am so happy stories of the war were shared with you. Oh, to have your Sunday school teacher share with you, "You can't choose who you fall in love with, but you can choose who you marry", is a blessing that has now enchanted your readers. What a story you have weaved together. History penned with such depth, detail, and a story that captures the heart. 
This lovely story begins in 1941. The war has started. Picture a family gathered around the Zenith to hear t…

The" I Am" Makes Us Think About What "i am"

In Genesis 1:26-27 it shares something valuable to each of us about who we are in God. We are created in His image. What I love about this verse below is that is says, "make man in OUR image". What's OUR? The trinity, God, the Holy Spirit, and Christ Jesus. Ponder that. I mean really go deep. We are make in THEIR image. 
"Then God said, "Let US make man in OUR image, according to OUR likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them."
We are His workmanship. He knew us before we were ever born. He weaved us together within the womb, but even before then He planned our life perfectly for us. That's so much to ponder isn't it? 
"For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared…

Unexpected Blessings

The last words my dad spoke to me from his hospital bed were, "Rob, take care of your mom." Those are words I have never forgotten. I have not only honored them for my dad, but for my mom. I too am commanded by my Father to honor my mother and father.
"Honor your father and mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12
My mom gave her life in caring for me. On my first birthday, my very first Christmas, was spent in the ICU as I was very sick with pneumonia. A little later I would burn myself with spilled coffee. A few years later I would tumble down many stairs and once again spent time in the hospital. 
I remember all the times I was sick and could feel my mom's hand brush against my forehead as she checked for fever. All the times she must have stayed up all night as I was sick. 
When I was little she would pour me a bowl of Raisin Bran. I loved it. Only I didn't like the raisins. She would take t…

The Glassblower by Petra Durst-Benning

I came across this selection on Amazon. I had seen so many reviews that it intrigued me. I had never read anything from this German author. The cover caught my attention as did the description of this novel. 
It's a part of a trilogy. I am getting ready to open up book 2, The American Lady. I cannot wait to begin. I tell you this book marveled me. I wasn't quite sure what to expect. What a journey into another time and place. 
We travel to Germany where this novel is set. The year is 1890 and we find ourselves in Lauscha, Germany. The author did a fantastic job at the perfect description of not only the area, but circumstance, and heart of the characters. Her writing style flows so easily that the pages almost turn themselves. 
The characters are easy to love. Three sisters who are now wondering, after their father had passed from this earth,  how they will now provide for themselves. It isn't going to be easy, but these sisters show us how to prevail over challenges that…

Of Stillness and Storm by Michele Phoenix

This is my first novel read by Michele Phoenix. I love the premise of this novel and all that she opened my eyes to. We always hear of the 'calling' by missionaries. We want to go where God calls us. We want to make a difference. 
To be called by God isn't the same for every soul. We all fit differently into His plan. Our walk with Him isn't ALL we do for His name, but our relationship with Him, our intimate journey with our Savior. 
This novel is raw and transparent. For me, it was the journey of Lauren. We see that her husband feels called to work in Nepal and with the people, but we really don't read about much of his personal journey. 
Their son, Ryan, is struggling. We can see through the conversations he has with his parents that he is truly unhappy. We see the fall, but we don't really get a close glimpse into his heart. 
It is with Lauren that we journey. She feels alone and lost. Through her words we can 'feel' the pain in her heart. She is br…
