Really wonderful book, full of cherished advice, rich stories, as well as humor. This is a terrific read for kids of all ages.  I had the privilege of meeting the author recently and he is a charming man who tells these stories to kids and makes them come to life. I watched as he entertained 100 kids and taught them how to bring their own stories to paper.

A truly talented author and poet stay tuned for more reviews on the Greatest Poet Alive.

Peace be with you! Hypocrites!

Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.” Matthew 23:15

I have kept quiet these last several days, listening and watching to the various opinions, comments, responses, and arguments in response to the law passed in Indiana. “When religion becomes a veneer of holiness to conceal unholy character, it makes its bearers less receptive to God’s transforming grace.” (IVP Commentary, Matt 23)

After careful consideration and prayer I have decided to speak.

Satan in laughing. At all of us. There is No victory for God here. No Glory for Christ.

We are fighting with believers, non-believers, government and waging a war that doesn’t need to be fought.

“And the Pharisees and scribes complained, saying, “This Man receives sinners and eats with them.”” (Luke 15:2)

Whether a restaurant owner chooses to allow a homosexual couple to eat in their restaurant, or allow someone of a different race, or a company hires someone that wears a cross, or keeps a magic 8 ball on their desk is merely a measure of their love of the Lord. It is SAD that we should even think that we need to legislate something like that. If we want to truly be bring Glory to Christ, we need to imitate his actions. We need to “eat with sinners.”

We are afforded GRACE, not mercy. Mercy is getting a reprieve from what we deserve, GRACE is getting what we do NOT deserve. God through CHRIST gives each and EVERY ONE of us GRACE and we need to extend that GRACE to others.

Paul tells us in Romans 12:18,20

“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”

We MUST forgive others in order to be forgiven. Is there anyone of us that doesn’t sin? Is there anyone of us that doesn’t want to be forgiven?

“And forgive us our sins, For we also forgive everyone who is indebted to us.

And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.” (Luke 11:4)

Merely associating with people whose sins are different than yours will not tempt you. The EVIL one tempts. It is our job to forgive and bring the GLORY of GOD to everyone, Christian, non-Christian, gay, straight, black, white, gray, yellow, green, fat, thin, old, young, sick, healthy, emotionally challenged, or the life of the party.

May we put aside our difference and bring Glory to God. Love one another IN the name of Christ. Let us not let religion and politics get in the way of our imitation of Christ.

“Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” (John 14:27)

LONG TIME NO NEWS

Well I’ve been off the reviews grid for WAY too long. Got wrapped up in people projects around the homestead rather than books and writing. I’m Back! Wanted to review Wendy Nystrom’s latest in her James’ Adventure Series – “Amongst the Clouds”

This books is absolutely amazing. You feel like you are part of the dazzling clouds, shimmering ice drops and exciting adventure. Truly the author brings together all of her previous books into a wonderfully delightful, exciting, and truly beautiful adventure that I have to say is really her best book yet!

James Saves the MoonJames Saves the Moon by Wendy Nystrom

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I received a copy of this for an honest review, and found myself a kid again. In this fanciful adventure with the sophistication of Jr. Tolkien but yet the whimsical properties of a children’s fantasy, Ms. Nystrom, delivers a beautiful mythological folklore for Iceland. The legends of Iceland we extremely well written and the perfect backdrop for the book.
James is a wonderful little boy and her characters, Syvok and Matt are excellent companions. They have a wonderful adventure that is sure to captivate the attention of all ages of audience.
Ms. Nystrom does a great job of elaborating on the personality of James, and the intelligence so that it fits well with the plot and story. I look forward to getting to know more about Syvok and Matt in the upcoming adventures.
The illustrations were excellent and created an ambiance that fit very well with the theme and flow of the book.
Great job and Look forward to reading more from this threesome.
