Read this book in 5 days.  I would of gotten it done sooner but summer time fun seems to get in the way.  It's one of those books that you shouldn't read in bed as you can't put it down and you will stay up most the night reading.   I was up until 2 am one night with this book.  Just finished the last book of this series and am ready to read the next book in the follow-up series (Sunrise Series).  These are ALL wonderful books.  If you haven't read them before the story line just sucks you in about each of the characters and what they are going through.  Makes you think about your struggles and forgiveness.  I gave this book 5 out of 5 stars on Goodreads.com (IT WAS AMAZING, yet again!!!)  Karen Kingsbury is a Christian author, you can check out all of her books by clicking here. 

Here are some of my favorite verses Karen used in the book this time.  Take a little time and think about your life and God today, Enjoy!

Matthew 6:34  "Don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.  Each day has enough trouble of its own."

Katy and Dayne went through a lot in this book.  I'm not going to spoil it, now you have to read it.  Like the saying goes, live in the moment and from day to day or enjoy what's right in front of you. Oh and don't take things for granted, who knows what will happen next.   

The bible talks about serving one another.  God created us to serve one another and take care of each other.  

From Ch#18 page 1 "Every day you should wake up and ask God what He wants you to do that day, how you can serve someone else.  Whatever your troubles serving others is one of the greatest cures"

Luke 1:35-37   35 The angel answered, “The Holy Spirit will come to you. The power of the Most High God will cover you. So the holy one that is born will be called the Son of God. 36 Your relative Elizabeth is old. And even she is going to have a child. People thought she could not have children. But she has been pregnant for six months now. 37 Nothing is impossible with God.”

Ch #28 pg 284 - Nothing is impossible with God...I can do everything through him who gives me strength...the battle is the Lord's...and many others.

I have many others I could put down but I won't.  Just read the book and you will learn and fall in love with the scriptures.
