The Beautiful Word 365 Devotional Bringing the Goodness of Scripture to Life in Your Heart The cover is white with flowers of red, light orange with darker orange pretty green leaves. The words are in aqua color and a very nice Springy look. I love this cover because it’s nice a jacket that either you rip or lose this cover stays in place. I take care of my books for one I want to keep them nice so I can keep going back to read what I underlined. There’s months and dates but I usually open a page and read it because it might be what I needed on that day. On Jan 2 there’s a cute short story on roller skates (you young people wouldn’t know what these are). This story sure took me back in time when I had a wonderful time on those skates. I even think you young kids would enjoy this story and laugh about our kinds of fun. There’s scripture on the edge of the pages on the left hand side of the book each page is in different colors with different designs and the scriptures are in different print which catches your eyes so you automatically read the scriptures first. Then on the right side of the page there’s lines for you to write down your prayers and thoughts, so you can go back later so put the date you wrote your prayer and thoughts. At the end of most of the months there’s one page with lines for you to put more thoughts. There are lots of devotions beautifully written. I love the fact there’s space for my thoughts and prayers. I recommend this book highly. You’ll be glad you got it. I received this book free from book look bloggers for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 stars ISBN 978-0-7180-8849-1

The Hum of Angels Listening for the Messengers of God Around Us By: Scot McKnight I love the cover of the bird and the colors look amazing on the cover. When I saw this book I had to have it to read, but God lead me to read first “The Seven Mile Miracle” (which I must say was great). I felt so blessed that “The Hum of Angels” was still available to read to review. Wow thank you Lord, Glory be to God!! I love reading about angels and figuring out if I might have a guardian angel to protect me and just who it might be. Have you ever thought about if you have an angel? I was sitting outside I do that on days that isn’t too hot, in FL. the weather here gets so hot you can’t sit outside long. I was reading this book and I was at the part where they were talking about the birds singing that lot of people don’t see, in that moment I heard a bird singing a beautiful song and could not see him it brought peace to me as they usually do when they sing their beautiful tunes and relaxes me as I sit and close my eye to listen I could listen to their music and chattering all day. Then out of nowhere this pretty bird was on my tree branch and then just as quickly as it came it was gone. The birds Scot is talking about are different little bird. The story on the hum of birds was amazing. I think I’ll pray God will let me hear and see these tiny little humming angels. In this book as Scot says “even among religious people there can be something of an embarrassment surrounding the subject of angels. Now wouldn’t you think if they were in the word (bible) they would have read about angels?? If someone would ask me if I believed in God my answer would be yes without hesitation, next if they’d ask if I believed in angels my answer again would be yes. Have these people really been that dumb what about Michael he was God’s Archangel. I’d call him the warrior of angels. One of the world’s great experts on angels in history, Valery Rees, you’ll have to read about her. As you read Mr. McKnight’s book he will tell you about professors of history, the greatest Theologians, and most importantly what the bible say about angels. There are so many stories in this book and how Scot tells about angels with bible backing how can you not believe in angels? I feel you really won’t be disappointed if you bought this book if you love angels. I recommend this book highly it is a page turner for sure. Grab it and hear the angels hum. I received this book free from blogging for books for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. ENJOY HEARING THE HUM OF ANGELS!! 5 Stars ISBN 978-1-60142-631-4 I put the ISBN for you to be able to find the book faster at the book stores.

Reclaiming the Lost Art of Biblical Meditation Find True Peace in Jesus By: Robert J. Morgan I love the cover of this beautiful book. What is nice is that the picture isn’t on a paper cover that when you lose it or rip it the picture of the beautiful cover is gone forever and all you have is the color of the book showing. The cover has a very nice peaceful feel to it. Meditation it’s self isn’t new, and it is not a new age. People have been meditating for years. If you truly want to get closer to The Lord then use what God’s people did in BC and meditate on God’s words. Read a sentence or more and meditate on the words you just read. Before you start the book pray about it, give God the glory and thank Him for His words of wisdom. Remember the people that were closest to God like the Psalmist pictured those who meditated day and night as fruitful. Virgin Mary treasured God’s word thought about them and placed them in her heart. Isaac went into the fields to meditate. Apostle Paul told us to meditate on truth, gracious and noble. Take sticky notes and write verses on them and stick them to a mirror, a wall, in your car or find a room that can be your very own where no one will enter without you. If you meditate better outside, by the water or in the woods, where ever you feel closest to God. Look at it this way—if you want to change your life, then you have to change your mind and get the colluder out of your mind first. Start with a fresh, mind that God has renewed. No matter where you go you take God with you. You may even turn them into prayer, songs or a hymn. See what works for you. Throughout this beautiful book you’ll see how people, Psalmist, and even Jesus felt about God’s word. Our body craves physical food, while your spirit craves Spiritual food. This book is a must have to go back to and refresh your memory on how to go back to the old ways of the Bible of learning, meditating, and keeping God’s word planted in your heart. This will be a book that I will have nearby to read again to keep in mind that way that Jesus felt about Gods word. I received this beautiful book free from Book look blogger for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions that I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-0-71808337-3
