The Wishing Jar

I just finished reading The Wishing Jar by Penelope J. Stokes and I loved it.

If you read and visit the library often do you ever feel like sometimes a book finds you rather than you find the book? Well, that's how I felt Tuesday when while I was searching for a book to read to get my mind off of the D&C I had last Friday.

I had searched through all kinds of books waiting to feel like I found the one I wanted to read and then I finally came across a green book with a jar on the front. There was a symbol on the side that read Christian Novel with a cross on it. I had the urge come over me and I picked it up and walked up to check it out. I didn't even read the back to see what it was about.

In all, it took me about 7 hours to read the book in a span of 3 days of reading. I highly recommend this novel to anyone. We all take things from books and I took from this one not to ask "why me" when we go through trials and tests but to find God in the situation and go from there. I look back at the miscarriage and don't think about the miscarriage but trust God with no questions asked. I learned at church one Sunday that sometimes God chooses us for certain things because we're strong enough to take it. I choose to roll with that answer and move on to the next task.

If you get a chance, check out the book at the library and read it. Come tell me what you think about it.

I love my faith, too! :o) It sure does seem to work when you're obedient. I tell ya that much.

Daniel and I very blessed right now with some things going on in our lives and it's such a motivator, ya know.

The book is great. I just went yesterday to the library and checked out another book from her, The Memory Book. I've only made it to the third page, lol, but I'm workin' on it.
