Always an Adventure!

I love books! It is such a thrill to open up the pages of a new book. It is always like beginning a new adventure, for me, that is. As you begin to get to know the characters, you feel like you are apart of their life, even if for a short time.
The one thing I enjoy about reading Christian books is that I am always drawn closer to my Creator, Jesus Christ. There are always lessons in each book that make me think about my own life, the road I have been on before and where I am going now with Jesus as my pilot! There have been healings in so many areas and growth that I would not have been able to do if I had continued in the other direction.
That is why I choose to read Christian books. There are many talented authors out there, but reading those who write with the same faith as myself, makes is so much more inspiring and enjoyable!
I look forward to each new adventure and the things that Christ will teach me along the way.
Happy Reading**

Meeting This Saturday

Hello ladies*
I am really looking forward to our Chick Lit Book Club meeting this Saturday, February 13th, at Starbucks. We have some sweet surprises for everyone who attends, and we will be choosing the next couple of books that we will be reading. Remember book reviewers meet at 10:00, and the regular meeting begins at 11:00.
If you have not read the Book of the Month, please don't let that stop you from coming to the meeting. You will still be just in time to start the new book for February and March.
If you have never been to one of our meetings and you are looking for a great Christian Womens Book Club to be apart of, come check us out! We always welcome new members! And you can see for yourself what the fun is all about!
Happy Valentines to you and your loved ones, keep in mind as you celebrate this day of love, that we have the best Bridegroom ever in Jesus Christ, and He loves us more than any human can ever try. He will never let us down or break our heart. In fact, He is the healer of the broken hearts and His love is never-ending!
Blessings and Happy Reading**

Simple Pleasures

Since it is the "Month of Love", I wanted to take a moment to express how important it is to tell those that you love and care about how you feel while you have the chance. So many times in our lives we will think there is another day to make that phone call, or send that card that tells someone special in our life how we feel. We know that sometimes those moments don't happen, and other times we take simple pleasures for granted. I have been known to be very good at expressing my emotions. But I am not perfect and I have learned from my mistakes. I really value the close relationships that I have been blessed with. I choose my friends wisely as I have been hurt so bad in the past.
Someone whom I am really thankful for is my Best Friend Lucie. I am so blessed to have such a good relationship with her. We have shared a lot of life's ups and downs in the short time that God has blessed us with our friendship, and I don't know what I would do without her. When they made that saying along time ago, "A friend is someone who knows everything about you and loves you anyways." I know it was perfect for my friendship with Lucie. I am so blessed also to help Lucie with our Chick Lit book club and feel so honored that God has called us to such a fun and fulfilling ministry.
So as you celebrate this "Month of Love" we do celebrate our Valentines, but also stop and think about those other people around you whom you may need to make that overdue phone call to. It may just be what they need to get them through the day!
