dorcii rated for Reading Challenge 2020 March on Apr 20, 2020
Comment: Thanks for your message :) Both books sounds very interesting to me, maybe I should have a look if I can find them here - especially the 2nd one which is all about saving! I like traveling... khm.. not now..., so I'm always up for some cost-saving activity! To be honest I try to avoid Starbucks, but also McDonald's! :D I like the no-name coffee shops, they are mostly cheaper, and also better than Starbucks :)
Response: Thanks for rating.I got both books free on my Amazon Kindle. Since I can't get to the library I am using the Kindle or the library app

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 :)
