Wednesday, May 15, 2019 Christian  No comments

I’ll start with a set of books, the first being ‘Not My Will,'(But Thine Be Done) written by Francena Arnold.  Her books may be purchased at Amazon.  Francena has written somewhere between 7 to 9 books. They are Christian based.  My favorite book is ‘Not My Will'(But Thine Be Done) Luke 22:42.  The next one would be ‘The

Light in My Window’ (Sequel) and  then ‘A Brother Beloved’.

Not My Will can take you to the point where your heart is breaking to the happiest ending anyone  can have.  It starts off with Alex and Jean Stewart watching there baby Eleanor trying to reach for a toy...

Fruit For Tomorrow by Francena H. Arnold

An absorbing account of a disillusioned young woman’s search for happiness in a world of broken dreams.

To Virginia Martin it seemed dreams were designed to be shattered.  And now the dream of her young life was about to prove just one more gigantic disappointment.

“It was pleasant sitting here on the cool terrace with the shade of the elm tree by the walk protecting her from the heat of the August sun.

Kurt had cut the lawn this morning and the scent of the mown grass brought a hazy memory of childhood days on Grandpa’s farm where the perfume of newly mown hay had hung over the field where she and Jim and Allie May had romped...

The Road Winds On by Francena Arnold

“A winding path of self-examination _the road winds on.  For Andy Lewis it is a long road.  He is engaged to the lovely Kay Putney, and planning to go to the Congo after they marry, Andy marvels at the wonderful life in store for him.  As a doctor and nurse they plan to help Andy’s father, Dr. Thomas Lewis, with his medical missionary work in Africa.”

“Does she never get tired, Waters?  She never walks if she can run, and she’d never run if she could fly.”

The older nurse laughed.  “She’s so full of the joy of living that she can hardly keep her feet on the ground.  We’re going to miss her when you take her away, Dr. Lewis.”

“I need her worse than you do.   Anyway, I spoke for her first,” he said with a grin...

“The Deepening Stream” by Francena Arnold.

The dramatic and compelling story of a young newspaperman’s search for meaning and purpose in a career that suddenly began to go sour.  Neil Abbott found that God’s ways are sometimes strange to human reasoning and “past finding out” until one allows himself to become the part of……………

The debate…. “All things happen for our good,” was said by a guest speaker at a church, where Neil Abbott and friends attended one evening.  “I agree.  But just now I’d rather hear what you think about this business of all things being for our good.   Or of us waiting for action until we’ve found what we interpret as God’s leading. Do you think that’s the way we’re supposed to live?”

Neil had been invited to a lodge, owned by his boss ‘Mr. Rossiter’...

A Brother Beloved

Friday, May 17, 2019 Christian  No comments

A Brother Beloved.  Dark broad-shouldered Gene was her responsibility since their mother past when she was only nine.  He had been away ‘behind the iron curtain’. It brought him back a changed man.  He is normal, said the doctors.  She knew better, and ‘utterly powerless to help him.’  She prayed urgently to God for him to restore the teasing lad who brought her torment and joy.  God put in motion an answer to her prayer which ‘failed to fit her preconceptions.’

They decided to take an ‘unplanned return to the abandoned family home.’  Joyce told him stories of when he was born and a second child also born on the same day at their home...
