That little inspiration….

I love these scriptures below. Having recently  experienced losing a loved one, these scriptures have been a comfort and an encouragement to me. Enjoy and have a blessed day. 🙂



But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope.

 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.

For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

 Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

Wherefore comfort one another with these words.~1 Thessalonians 4:13-18


also these scriptures,


Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,

 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.~ 1 Corinthians 15:51-52

The Crimson Cord~Jill Eileen Smith~

The Crimson Cord: Rahab's Story (Daughters of the Promised Land #1)


Wife to a gambler who took one too many risks, Rahab finds herself sold as a slave to cover her husband’s debt. Forced into prostitution by Dabir, counselor to the Syrian king, Rahab despairs of ever regaining her freedom and her self-respect. But when Israelite spies enter Jericho and come to lodge at her house, Rahab sees a glimmer of hope and the opportunity of a lifetime. In one risky moment, she takes a leap of faith, puts her trust in a God she does not know, and vows to protect the spies from the authorities. When the armies of Israel arrive weeks later, Rahab hopes they will keep their promise, but she has no idea what kind of challenges await her outside Jericho’s walls–or if she will ever know the meaning of love.

                                       *My Review*

The Crimson Cord:Rahab’s Story-Jill Eileen Smith

Ever since I read Tessa Afshar’s book, Pearl in the Sand which was based on the life of Rahab I have been looking forward to reading Biblical fiction novels based on Rahab.
So as far as concerning this novel, I was pretty drawn into the story at first. It was interesting enough and I pretty much got through half of the book before I just felt that the book was kinda drawn out.

As the story went along, I felt that most of the characters were one-dimensional and nothing about the story really stood out to me. I felt that the novel needed more and the characters needed to have that extraordinary something to really stand out. The book cover is beautifully done.
All in all, the story was ok but not a book that I wouldn’t want to revisit anytime soon.

(3 stars)

                             ~ My Review~

Counted with the Stars~Connilyn Cossette~

Can I just say wow!! Just WOW!! This book was incredibly awesome and well written. It was a powerful and moving book for a debut author.
Counted with the Stars was filled with adventure,love and romance all combinations of which I LOVE to see in any novel that I read. I was throughly engrossed which is kinda hard for me these days because I stay busy. I really,really, enjoy when a book can pull me from reality into a blissful peaceful world of imagination.
It was amazing to read about the different characters in this novel. I especially love how the author gave the main character such a unique background story.

The author also gave a glimpse into what life would’ve been like during the days of Moses and ancient Egypt.
It was quite extraordinary to see how the plagues disrupted everything in a normal day in ancient Egypt. Also in the book like the Bible it illustrates how that each and every one of the plagues had a direct hit on all the gods of Egypt so that God could prove that He was the ONLY living TRUE GOD.
The romance in this book was very heart-felt and I did have a wow moment because it was so GOOD!
I literally didn’t want this novel to end. This may be one of the best books in Biblical fiction this year. I guess I’ll have to see because I’m pretty behind in my reading.
I absolutely enjoyed this story! it was heartfelt and unique in its own way. I can’t wait to read whatever else this author has in store. Oh yeah, I almost forgot, I love the book cover. It’s so beautiful! (4.5 stars)

Shadow of the Storm (Out From Egypt, #2)

In the Depth of the Storm’s Shadow, Only Truth Can Light Her Way

Having escaped Egypt with the other Hebrews during the Exodus, Shira is now living in freedom at the foot of Mt. Sinai, upon which rests the fiery glowing Cloud containing the shekinah glory of God. When the people disobey Yahweh and build a golden idol, the ensuing chaos gives Shira an unexpected opportunity to learn the arts of midwifery. Although her mother wishes for her to continue in the family weaving trade, Shira’s gifts shine brightest when she assists with deliveries. In defiance of her mother, Shira pursues her heart’s calling to become an apprentice midwife.

When a delivery goes horribly wrong, Shira finds herself bound to a man who betrayed her, the caretaker of three young children, and the target of a vengeful woman whose husband was killed by Shira’s people, the Levites. As contention between the Hebrew tribes and the foreigners fans the flames of another dangerous rebellion, Shira will come face-to-face with the heartbreak of her past that she has kept hidden for so long. How can she let go of all that has defined her to accept the love she’s denied herself and embrace who she truly is?


I can’t wait!
