Good Morning, Lord: I Don't Know Where You're Going Today, But I'm Going with You


Good Morning, Lord: I Don't Know Where You're Going Today, But I'm Going with You by Sheila Walsh is cute on a couple of levels - to look at and to feel. Also, the pages inside are nicely decorated. This devotional for women has two pages per day where you can read a short story that starts out with "Today I will...", then there there are questions and space for personal reflection. Included with each daily chapter, there is a short prayer and a scripture. 


This was a fast read to just go through the stories, but now I will go back through and spend time with the Lord, reflecting on the questions and scripture...praying my way through the book, as was intended. This is not intended to be a bible study book, just a morning devotional. What a pretty and encouraging way to start the day.

The Heavens Proclaim His Glory


This is a beautiful, wonderful book that can be kept in your own library, used as a coffee table book, or given as a special gift.  It is full of fantastic images taken from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, and credit is given to God through quotes by Christian writers or using scripture.

I think this book would be intriguing to any age group, especially with the colorful and inspiring images.  To think that these pictures, if you can even call them that, were taken in the Milky Way, which 100,000 light years across.  That is 600,000,000,000,000,000 miles!  Unbelievable...  A definite plus to the library.

Outlive Your Life

Max Lucado's new book takes the reader through the book of Acts. We learn to challenge ourselves as Christians and the Church to reach out to others that we come into contact with. The book's proceeds are 100% donated, which is very admirable. It is written with Max Lucado style, but in the case of this book, it seems to not finish well. The book is motivational, including plenty of scripture and starts each chapter with a prayer.

The Butterfly Effect


The Butterfly Effect really gives you something to think about in your own life. It tells the story of how one man's decision affected the outcome of the Civil War, but backing up even further than that, how decisions were made before his life and generation that affected him. 


The question becomes: How many decisions are made by us daily that affect us and those around us? Do we have a profound effect on history by some small movement we make in our life today, tomorrow, yesterday? Will we ever know if we made a difference? 


This is a small gift book that holds beautiful illustrations and a thought provoking story. It's definitely worth the 30 minutes to an hour that you might spend reading it.
