Comment: Thank you for sharing. I am experiencing the same problem with my swap. I decided to read a comedy by Lope de Vega. I used to love old Russian movie based on The Dog in the Manger; but as beautiful as the play written I seems to have issues with the main character...
Response: Thanks for the heart. I think almost everyone had problems with this challenge, LOL!

Comment: Thank you for your review of After Anna, Loida! It sounds very intriguing to me! Is it a stand-alone? If yes, I'll definitely have to see about reading it! If it's part of a series, I might still read it, but if it IS part of a series, does the series need to be read in order? Thank you again for sharing! :-) <3
Response: Thanks for the heart! It's a stand alone, at least so far. It just came out in April.

Comment: Thank you for reading The Great Gatsby, Loida. I must admit, if I have it on my TBR, I think I'll go take it off. It's sad that the poor reviews seem to actually be true when it comes to that book. I hope my book will be better! (I haven't actually read my choice, yet. THANK YOU for giving us extra time for "April's" book to be read!) Thanks again for sharing! :-) <3
Response: You're welcome, thanks for rating. Hope you enjoy your book.

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.

FunsizeSteph on Oct 12, 2017:

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 :)
