Prayer of the Week! (July 24, 2014)- Ephesians 2:1-3

A couple of years ago I took part in a Bible study where we studied the book of Ephesians.  Once a week I would like to mention the Bible verses which were studied, then give you my prayer involving those verses.
Today will be Ephesians 2:1-3.
Dear Lord,
Thank you for You.  I no longer want to be a child of wrath.  Thank you for taking me away from the prince of the air.  I will no longer follow him.  I will obey You and Your Son. 
In Jesus’s name.  Amen

We always have a lot of clouds to see out here in the West.  This one was from a couple of weeks ago.  It was strange, but it was not a tornado.

Rope of Sand, by C. F. Dunn, is the third book in The Secret of the Journal series.  Emma learned what Matthew’s secret was in Death be not Proud and now she is going to meet his family.  She isn’t sure what to think and they are not either.  His family is leery, because it has not always gone well when people learn the family’s secret.

Emma’s problems with Professor Staahl have not ended either.  He  has taken her to court.  Will Emma have to expose Matthew’s secret to keep herself safe?  Will Matthew’s family accept her?

About the Author-

C. F. Dunn lives in South-East England and has written Mortal Fire and Death be not Proud.  She has a specialist dyslexia and autism school.

My thoughts-

Rope of Sand, by C. F. Dunn, was the third book in The Secret of the Journal series.  I thought it was as intriguing as the other books.  The first book focused on Emma’s infatuation with Matthew, the second book focused on their relationship and Matthew’s secret, and this book focused on their relationship and the trials they faced with their special situation.

I was very glad that this book had a list of characters and a synopsis of the other two books.  It really helped me remember who was who and what happened in each book.  I was ready to start the book and enjoy it after that.  It was a long book at 462 pages, but Dunn did a wonderful job of including a lot of detail, which kept me captivated until the end.

While you do not need to read the other books in the series first, I do recommend that you do, so you can know everything that has happened.  I am looking forward to the next book in the series, Realm of Darkness.

Disclosure of Material Connection- I received Rope of Sand, by C. F. Dunn, for free from the Kregel Publications’ Blog Tour.  All links were current when posted.  I was not required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own or those of my family.  I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.

Prayer of the Week! (July 17, 2014)- Ephesians 1:22-23

A couple of years ago I took part in a Bible study where we studied the book of Ephesians.  Once a week I would like to mention the Bible verses which were studied, then give you my prayer involving those verses.
Today will be Ephesians 1:22-23.
Dearest Lord,
You have truly put Jesus over all of us.  He is head over our heads and hearts, but also the church.  The church is his body and we need to be a part of that body.
I thank you for what you have done for us.  You have given us a leader.
In Jesus’s name.
Amen!

We went for a 4-wheeler ride, so I had a lot of fun taking pictures.  I wanted to see all what my camera could do.  There will be more pictures from the ride coming in future weeks.
