Scripture Sunday

"To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace." ~ Ecclesiastes 3: 1-8

This verse has been on my mind all day.  Yesterday was my sister's 34th wedding anniversary...a time to love, dance and laugh. Yesterday, my Aunt Barbara (my dad's sister-in-law) and Aunt Georgia (my dad's sister) passed away...a time to weep, mourn and a time of peace.  I know that my aunt's are having a wonderful reunion in heaven.  They will be missed by all that love them.

2017 Reading Challenge ~ March

This month's reading challenge theme is Encouragement...choose a book to read that is inspirational, a self-help, or a religious book.  I chose "More than the Tattooed Mormon" by Al Carraway.

This is actually my second time reading this book.  The first time I read this book, I read it very quickly because my kids wanted to read it and I wanted to be able to have a conversation with them should they have any questions.
This second reading was slower and I enjoyed Al's story even more.  Al's story is about her conversion to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and more.  It's a story of faith, courage, strength and prayer.  I agree with Brad Wilcox, PhD..."Al shares her story with frankness and passion.  She fills each chapter with memorable insights and true wisdom.  But this book isn't really about Al.  It is about God and you! It is about the transformation that is possible for all of us through the Atonement of Jesus Christ."

I highly recommend this book to my friends and family.

(Disclaimer:  I purchased this book in 2016 for my personal reading.  The author did not ask me to review this book and I did not get any compensation for my review.)
