Lessons From the Eagle

In my office I have a wall hanging depicting an eagle in flight with the words of Is. 40:30-31 under the image of the eagle.  "Youths may faint and grow weary, and young men stumble and fall, but those who trust in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not faint." I also have some eagle head book ends.  These things remind me of the majesty of the eagle, and also remind me of an acrostic that God gave me years ago and I shared with the youth in my group at the time.

E=Embrace each day. "This is the day the Lord has made..." Ps.118:24 A=Ask for whatever you need. "Give us today our daily bread..." Matt. 6:11 G=God should always be the center of your life, family, friendships etc. Deut. 6:4-5 L=Love as Jesus loves you. John 13:34-35 E=Encourage someone today. Hebrews 10:24-25
I could have written out the scriptures, but I really want you to take the time to look them up …

Bound to A Promis; A Review

I was sent this book by the B & B Media Group in return for my review. Bonnie Floyd has written a book that, while true, reads almost like a novel.  Her word pictures enable the reader to experience the things she saw, heard and felt.  It is almost like readingsomeone's personal diary.  At times I felt that I was eaves-dropping on very private moments. Not only is this a riveting story of intrigue and murder, it is also an inspiring story of redemption both with God and with fellow human beings. Along the way you will meet her father, Bill, her step-mother Kathy, "My Donnie" her husband as well as a variety of characters including Scotland Yard dectives, millionaires, statesmen, murderers, prison superintendants and more.
You'll need to set aside time to read because once you begin this book, it will hard to put down.  Bound to a Promise is a must read.
