Comment: Thank you for your message with the book review, Loida! I'm glad you were able to find a book by an author who shares your initials. :-) I'm just sorry that you didn't love it. :-( But I too don't read much "chick lit," either. I need something paranormal in a book to really enjoy it, most of the time. Thank you for sharing!
Response: You're welcome, thanks for rating. My hubby says that somebody has to be murdered in a book or there has to be a monster for me to read it, LOL!
Comment: Thank you so much for doing private swap. And thank you for sharing your read with me.

Comment: I've had some strange things happen to messages, ratings, etc here too so it may not have been that your brain is fried but congratulations! Thank you for the review - I don't normally read non-fiction either but sometimes one comes along that you just have to check out. The Blindsided and In Cold Blood were ones that I had to see what all the fuss was about 😀 I'll see you in the next swap!
Response: I know what you mean, I had heard about In Cold Blood, never saw the movie and wondered what the big deal was also, LOL! Thanks for the heart!

Comment: Wow, I've never read "In Cold Blood," but I remember when the actual event happened! Thanks for the great review. I've read other things by Capote, in particular the lovely "A Christmas Memory" and his other Christmas stories. They were all good, so maybe I'll delve into "Blood" one of these days.
Response: Thanks for the heart!

Profile Bible Verse #2: Isaiah 41:10 . So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

In a world where everything seems to be falling a part, this verse reminds me that God is in control. Hope this finds you blessed, happy, and healthy.

My favourite bible verse is from: 1 Corinthians 13:4–8a Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. Me and my partner are having this read at our wedding

Swap: Profile Bible Verse #1

So do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today. -Matthew 6:34

This is one of my favorite bible verses that I use quite a lot to remind myself to calm down when I get overwhelmed or stressed. I hope you can find use for it also :)
