‘This is a wonderful read that is bound to win first place in the bedtime reading stakes.’ ~ The Lady

‘A warming bedtime tale…’ ~ Publishing News

‘…lively …humorous.’ ~ Carousel

My review:

It was quite exciting and funny to begin with, but then lost it towards the end. Still, I think it’s an OK bedtime story.

What is This?

Chocolate and the greed of big corporations

Now I am finally on the mend, I can muster up the energy to say my piece about something which bothered me earlier this month.

Seriously, what is this? An Oreo milk bar in what is supposed to be a British chocolate maker pack? I knew it was a huge mistake selling Cadbury’s toMondelez International (formerly Kraft). Their promises to keep this brand British were empty, and amongst other things, this just proves my point. How dare they take out Fudge for this nonsense?

I for one HATE Oreo. It is absolutely disgusting, and so is Hershey’s. Hence the reason when I am in the US, I hope and pray my lovely friends will send British chocolate to me, and never eat chocolate unless they do. It is also the reason I continue to send British chocolate to my beloved best friend who moved to the US some time ago.

When Anxiety Hits–Seeking God

Anxiety and God

Jennifer Slattery Lives Out Loud

God has given us everything we need to live confident, peaceful lives. But we can spend so much time wandering about in our misery, we fail to seek out the best way to peace—time with God Himself. My guest today shares a cute story regarding her midnight-roaming feline to illustrate an unshakable truth.

What My Cat Taught Me About God by Karin Beery

When my husband and I got married, we moved into a small rental house. With less than a thousand square feet, there wasn’t room to move things once we put everything in its place. That’s why we never rearranged our bedroom furniture – lack of options.

Know the Times

Your thoughts?

Run With It

When you look at what all is going on in the world around you, do you get a sense that we are living in the final days before the Lord’s return? Do you see the signs of his soon return in world news, and in the church, and on TV, in our culture, and in the schools, in the workplace, and in the home?

The Lord Jesus led me to read 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11 (ESV).

Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. Vv. 1-3

One of the signs of the…

We’re Going on a Bear Hunt

We’re going on a bear hunt.
We’re going to catch a big one.
What a beautiful day!
We’re not scared.

“A dramatic and comic masterpiece … a classic work for any age at any period.” ~ Independent on Sunday

My review:

Absolutely brilliant book, although a little sad at the end. We know the story from watching the short animated film year before last. Initially, the title made me believe they were setting out to find a bear to hurt it intentionally. What a relief it was to realise this was not the case. Phew!
