Heaven is for Real
Heaven is for Real
Told by his father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message of this book is that heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children and be ready, there is a coming last battle.
It's late January and Loon Lake is hosting an International Ice Fishing Festival. Police Chief Lewellyn Ferris and her limited team are busy with the usual headaches and then some, and Doc Osborne is busy studying fly-casting videos in an effort to impress Lew come spring.
But a panicked call from Rob Beltner leads to a sad discovery: his wife, Kathy, is dead of a gunshot wound. Lew barely begins to investigate the shooting before she's side tracked by the imposing figure of Patience Schumacher, President of Wheedon Technical College. Patience is certain she's being stalked, and as Lew investigates, the uncanny coincidences accumulate like snow on the frozen, deadly surface of Loon Lake.
For those of you who like Mystery and Intrigue, Sherry Reddick has been reading Vince Flynn. One of his books is entitled "Consent to Kill." She tells me these are not for "the faint of heart." One involves Navy Seals -- and so on. I so like hearing from all of you, what you read, what you recommend to other readers.
One other book I've loved as I happen to like "tramp art." Some was made from cigar boxes, whatever was available during the depression years.
The book is called Woodland Style, Ideas and Projects for Bringing Foraged and Found Elements Into Your Home, Marlene Hurley Marshall, Photographs by Sabine Vollmer von Falken.
Bring the beauty and serenity of a walk in the woods into your home. Hand gathered collections of acorns and moss, twigs and bark and leaves and wild flowers are the main elements in natural home decorations, lending texture, scent, and warmth to interior settings of every style.
