Forever Friday by Timothy Lewis

Every Friday, a postcard. Every Friday, a love poem. Every Friday for sixty years.

Forever Friday is well written, full of hope, laughter, and wonderful banter between characters. The beginning pulls you in and the ending leaves you feeling wonderful.

This novel tells a delightful story, a story that inspires us to renew our love and to deepen our relationships. A simple love story, intertwining the joy of new love, the challenge of enduring love, the hope of renewed love, and the joy of lasting love into a beautiful and complex tapestry.

Forever Friday invites you to travel back in time to the early twentieth century Texas Coastal Bend where a young couple—Gabe and Pearl Alexander—are swept up in a miraculous love. As the heartwarming, pulse-quickening story of their relationship develops through Gabe’s poems; the Alexander’s reveal a new way to consider what it means to be truly devoted to each other. Could the secrets of their love affair, laid to rest twenty years ago, hold the key to one man’s future?

This inspirational tale will not disappoint. Spanning generations and transporting readers across time, Lewis’s delightful characters highlight the importance of genuine relationships while reminding us all to appreciate the loved ones in our lives.

Forever Friday is an encouraging story about making marriage last for a lifetime. I like reading the story from four different viewpoints and covering a wide span of time. It’s a sweet story that I highly recommend.
I received copy of book from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group through their Blogging for Books program for my review.

A Covenant With My Eyes by Bob Sorge

          A Covenant With My Eyes is for men and women, who are seeking an intimate relationship with the Father, this book will challenge you to guard your eyes, by understanding that the eyes are the main gate where we get information. It is better to fight the enemy that is outside the gate than the enemy that is inside. Matthew 6:22-23 "The lamp of the body is the eye. If therefore your eye is good, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness!
          This book sounds a bold call to the highest consecration in our sexuality. Get ready for a unique book that is apprehending, prudent, and empowering. This book extends an invitation to actually make a covenant vow before God with our eyes, based on Bob’s own experience with Job 31:1.        
          This book is so much more than clever insights and good ideas. It is not just another book on purity. It mines an ancient spiritual truth and brings it to light with force, grace, eloquence, and revelation. Each chapter has thought provoking questions for discussion.

           Reading this book reminded me of a quote from Bubba Stahl:” Your eye looks for what your heart is looking at. Your ear is tuned to what your heart listens to. Set your heart on The Lord today.”

I received e-Book from the Bob Sorge website for my review
