The Gift Of Jesus By Thomas Nelson I love the feel of the cover on this book!! I love the devotion on page 9 Week 2 No Shortcut Savior, This tell you that Jesus doesn’t take shortcuts so if you pray and don’t hear from Him right away hang in there He knows when to answer your prayer if He doesn’t it’s for a reason that you have not yet seen why or maybe not the way you wanted the prayer to be answered. This one made me wonder how many of you including myself felt our savior took shortcuts when you asked for a prayer to be answered and it was not answered or that it was different then the way you expected it to be. I have done that, shame on me only to find out if I got the answer I wanted I would have been one miserable woman. Do you praise The Lord in all your circumstances or just ones you see he answered? This Devotional will bring Jesus to life like you’ve never seen before. I love this devotional and thought of getting one for my grandson. I know it will be one that will be in my car you know just in case I get stuck in traffic or delayed for a reason like DR’s seem to love to have you sit and wait. I think you’ll really love this beautiful book so pick one up I am sure you won’t be sorry. I recommend this book highly. I received this beautiful devotional free from Booklookbloggers for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one.

Love, Henri Letters On The Spiritual Life Forword by: Brene Brown I love the fact that Henri himself answers all the post cards, letters and notes anything that he gets in the mail he doesn’t depend on someone else to answer them for him. He received 16,000 letters and cared enough about the people to write his letters personally to them that in its self showed that he really cared and loved the people. He wrote and received and answered letters for more than a two decades. So as you read these letters I am sure your heart will find hope like so many of the people that he gave hope to through his letters for decades. Henri was a pastor in Latin America for people that need him because of their disabilities. Henri gave the people hope who didn’t know how to find hope anywhere else. They hung on to every prayer and word he sent them. For me this book was a slow starter for me and hard to read. Once I got into it I really loved the letters Henri wrote with love that you could just feel it coming out the way he wrote his letters. I have had a lot of distractions throughout the holidays and still with Christmas coming. I tried several times and ended up putting the book down I just couldn’t stay with it sorry!!! I think I will reread the book when all settles on the home front and probably write another review for it. That is what took me so long in writing my review I am so very sorry!! Usually I am fast at getting my reviews done but this time of year has been a hard one. May these letters touch the hearts of the ones that read them and find hope, faith, and peace as you read Henri’s letters of love.

365 Devotions for Finding Rest By: Christina Vinson The cover with the nice welcoming swing and pillow says “come and sit and rest and find peace”. As you sit down close your eyes and find rest imagine a nice soothing breeze and the warm sun falling on your face as you swing slowly to the rhythm God sets for you, just rest for a few minutes. Now that you’re at peace and feel relaxed it’s time to open the book and meditate on the words inside. As you do you may start to feel rest come upon you that you’ve longed for. Now it time to read how you can find that rest no matter what you’re going through. First there’s a scripture for you to meditate on then there’s a story and at the end there’s a prayer for you, always nice to have prayers. For example on page 12 title “Rest in True Friends” this story tells of different friends if you have to impress someone is that person truly your friend? What are true friends and how are they with you, what do they ask of you? Then on page 10 titled “ Rest in God’s Love” this story reminded me to have more intimacy with Him and to sit in His presence, study His Word more, and communicate with Him, He loves when you talk to Him. There are all kinds of devotions for you to find rest the way God wants you to truly find rest. There are stories on Financial Worries, Rest in the Mist of Despair, Rest in Winter, Creatures of Discontent, and The Gift of Rest are a few of the devotions in this beautiful book. It shows us God is there always in our good times and in our storms, but for some reason most people don’t need Him if they are in there good times. I find I need him all the time. I highly recommend this book. I feel you will soon find the way to rest the way God meant for you to. I love this book I will take it in my car you know just in case there is a long light and I would take it to sit outside especially if I didn’t get rest the night before. I received this book free from booklookbloggers for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opnions I have expressed were entirely my own and no one else’s I pray this book will bless you. 5 Stars ISBN: 978-0-310-08353-5

DOCTOR DOG Healing Touches from Pets We Love By: M. R. Wells I just fell in love with the cover of a lady and her beautiful dog. See the love they have for each other a love you won’t always find in the person you think cares for you. A pet gives love freely and kisses galore. As you find they will give you a place to rest when you are weary and hurt, they will kiss away your tears and bring you peace that you’ll never find in a human. Think of it Dog is God spelled backwards. This beautiful story is filled with fur angels helps the people with cancer, heart problems, diabetes people that may slip into a coma in their sleep WOW better then DR think? These are all beautiful stories with happy ending mostly. You’ll discover how these people found and trained or had their dogs trained for their special needs. These fur angels are loyal to the end. The stories are all good but I loved Kathy and Gus and learn what happens when they really get their relationship going strong. This dog is amazing (they all are really). Then on page 101 little 12 week old fur angel Australian Shepherd which Makenzie heart fell in love with at first sight (love my Aussies). Bentley became Makenzie life line to the world. There are so many lovely stores of Fur Angels in this book I could go on and on, but I want you to read the book so I’ll leave you with those stories. I recommend this book highly for the dog lover. Rescue pups are just waiting for a chance to show you what they are made of, how about rescuing today? I feel you will be blessed by this book. HAPPY READING!!!! I received this beautiful book from harvest House free for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one.

http://www.booksamillion.com/p/Restoring-Christmas/Cynthia-Ruchti/9781617957079?id=6774921979665 Restoring Christmas By Cynthia Ruchti I love the cover with the wreath, snow, hammer, and what looks like a farm house door. A nice country scene, I love the country it’s quiet and peaceful. Interior Designer Alexis signed up for remodeling a home so she could further career. She has plans for her future-but things don’t go as smoothly as she planned. Alexis is on the road to meet videographer in Wisconsin the man that she hire to do the pictures as she make the remodeling from old out dated to new and refreshing. As Alexis waits in line for breakfast and a much needed coffee she gets so irritated by some guy is in line just flirting with the cashier and forgets there are others in line. Alexis has her table picked out. As she picks up her coffee and food she turns and there is that same irritating guy at her table. Well what else could possibly go wrong? As things go along she finds out not only is her videographer down sick but the lady is not happy about Alexis remodeling her home. As things get worse for Alexis she is wondering if she’ll ever have a career or just be out on the street. She runs into road block after road block. As you open this book it will have you from the beginning and keep you wondering just what in the world did Alexis get herself in to? Will God be there to help her or has He left her too? You will find this book hard to put down. You’ll fall in love with the some of the characters in the story and want to rope and tie others up. I recommend this book highly.
