Goodness and Mercy By Vanessa Davis Grigs, a book review

As I promised to my twitter followers earlier today here’s a book review of a fabulous book I finished on Saturday. The book is entitled Goodness and Mercy written by Vanessa Davis Grigs. I received this from the Library for Accessible services in Atlanta on digital flash cartridge. Although this may not seem important to some of you, if there are any of my readers who are blind, y’all might appreciate that.
Anyway, to get on with the review. this book is about a girl who grew up in a mentally abusive home, and she started working in a dance hall type of place, before she came to accept Jesus as her Lord and Savior. The character’s name is Gabrielle Mercedes. Anyway, she discovers that even though her faith in God grows stronger, she still has trials she must face, even a man who constantly cheats on his wife.
I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical at first, but this author uses biblical passages to I guess you could say forewarn the reader of what’s about to happen in each chapter. I don’t know if that’s the right word, but I give this book a 5 star rating anyway, because the author keeps you engaged in the story from the start. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves Christian fiction like I do.
Well folks, that’s it for this post, until next time, happy reading, writing, and blogging.

What is Love Sent from God?

The love that is sent down from the Lord above is:

A feeling that warms your heart when loved ones are near

A joy you feel when you are in the company of that special someone in your life.

The joy a mother feels when she sees the smile on the face of her precious child, or feels the child’s arms around her.

The feel of Jesus smiling down on you, and the Holy spirit filling your heart.

A feeling that cannot be described in words alone.

These are just a few of the components that make up the love of Christ, and the love He puts in your heart for the special people He has placed in your life.  Do you have this special love I am talking about? if not, Ask Jesus into your heart, and he will give you the love you have always been searching for.  This kind of love doesn’t come from the heart of a human being except by God’s  amazing Grace to make you a shining light for Him so that the world may see His love shining through you.  Ask yourselves this question my dear readers, Do you have the love of Jesus in your heart?  If not, I pray that you find that precious love before it is eternally too late.

Love and prayers,

Ann
