Hillary is Racist!

July 29th, 2016

She wore that white racist outfit!


When Melania Trump wore a white dress she was called a racist and she didn’t even give the so called “Nazi salute” that Republicans allegedly gave as they waved to the audience.

The progressives socialists commies democrats apparently don’t want us to know the Hill is racist, too. I’m sure they don’t want anyone digging into her background any more than they’ve already been doing.

After all the democrat party is the party of racism as they and their race baiters try to keep our black citizens in the victim category. They don’t want people of all races to know that they have the ability to take control of their lives and rise above the victim label. Any one can choose to rise above where he or she happens to be at the present. All without violence or handouts. People need a hand up, and there are many people out here willing to help.

The Implanted Word

July 9th, 2016


Know this, my dearly beloved brethren: let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to anger –

for human anger doesn’t produce the righteousness of God.

So put away all moral filth and excess of evil and receive with humility the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.

Jacob (James) 1:19-21

Murder Mezzo Forte

Murder Mezzo Forte

By Donn Taylor

He is a reclusive history professor with musical hallucinations, she a headstrong professor of religion, a converted Wiccan. Earlier, they solved a campus murder, but now police say they formed two-thirds of an illicit love triangle with a newly-murdered female colleague and they’re probably guilty of her murder. A leak of the alleged scandal to the college administration threatens their jobs. Their desperate attempt to prove themselves innocent of the triangle and the murder plunges them into a tangle of unsavory corporate relationships among college trustees. And it puts their lives in danger from a mysterious criminal organization that seems to have tentacles everywhere.

Can this ill-matched pair’s stumbling efforts succeed against the entrenched forces of the police, the college’s incompetent administration, and that powerful but unseen criminal organization? If not, they may end up unemployed, in prison, or suffering a fate much worse . .


What an unlikely partnership. A professor with musical hallucinations and a former Wiccan would appear to have very little in common.

Well, there is that murder that they worked together to solve, and they are both employed by the same college. But other than that . . .

Preston and Mara just seem to fall into these things. But this one is a bit bizarre. Hopefully, they can straighten things out, keep their jobs and not end up dead.

This is the first book I’ve read by Mr. Taylor. I now have to go back and read Rhapsody in Red – the first book in the Preston Barclay Mystery series.

I don’t know how many murders a small campus can handle, but I don’t want them to stop. I like this unlikely partnership.

Perfect Gifts

July 2nd, 2016


Do not be deceived, my dearly loved brethren.

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.

By His will, He brought us forth by the word of truth, so that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all He created.

By Katy Lee

When race-car track owner Veronica Spencer discovers stolen cars in a garage on her track, she knows she’s been framed. But before Roni can do anything about it, the criminals kidnap her. Undercover FBI agent Ethan Gunn shouldn’t break his cover to protect Roni, but he won’t watch her die, either. Despite his FBI information that says she’s involved in the crime ring, Ethan knows she’s innocent. So he risks it all to help her break free. But now, with killers and the FBI on their trail, Ethan must find a way to keep her safe…and clear her name.


BAM! Veronica was certainly blindsided. Someone wanted her kidnapped and/or dead. It was either family, friends or someone she once thought she loved.

Who could she trust? It appeared as though she was completely on her own. If the opportunity presented itself, could she be resourceful enough to escape?

Being a race car driver and instructor may not be enough. As Veronica accelerates through the story, you’ll find yourself accelerating through this book. It’s a book I just couldn’t put down. I had to know how it was going to end. Ms Lee’s books do that to me.

Thank you so much, Katy, for giving me another suspense involving the Spencer family. This is a good stand alone read, but you’ll appreciate it more if you read Silent Night Pursuit first. I can hardly wait for the next book in this Roads to Danger series. I want to know more about Veronica’s mysterious brother.

The Crown of Life

June 25th, 2016


Happy is the one who endures testing, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord promised to those who love Him.

Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God” – for God can not be tempted by evil, and He himself tempts no one.

But each one is tempted when he is dragged away and enticed by his own desire.

Then when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is full grown, it brings forth death.

Jacob (James)1:12-15

Rejoice in Trials

June 18th, 2016


Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials

knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance.

And let endurance have its perfect work, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

A Lesson in Hope

A Lesson in Hope

By Philip Gulley

Sam Gardner has been pastor of Hope Friends Meeting for just four months when ninety-eight-year-old member Olive Charles passes away. What’s more shocking news is that Olive has left her entire estate–worth nearly one million dollars–to the meeting. At first the gift sounds to Sam like a like a godsend. Yet as word of the unexpected windfall spreads, it stirs up a storm of conflicting opinions amongst the church members as to how the money would best be used.

And before the estate is even released to the meeting, Olive’s estranged niece, Regina Charles, turns up tipsy and furious in Hope and threatens a lawsuit over what she believes is rightfully hers. Although it may be an opportune time to ask for a raise, Sam finds himself questioning his future in Hope while trying to guide his lively congregation and find a peaceful way to deal with Regina.


This former Hoosier loves Philip Gulley’s books about pastor Sam Gardner. These books make you smile while also making you think.

Sam has his hands full at his new pastorate in Hope. It was challenge enough before Olive Charles left a hefty bequest to the meeting. Now it’s stirred things up even more.

Is this job in Hope going to last much longer? There’s no returning to Harmony.

I was born and raised just down the road from Harmony. Then later I lived in Hope for a year. That makes these books even more special.

This is a good stand alone read, but it’s even better if you read the Harmony series and A Place called Hope first. I’m looking forward to A Gathering in Hope. I’m sure you will, as did I, enjoy Mr. Gulley’s Harmony series as well. Thank you, sir, for taking me back to my roots for a little while.
