People say wise things every day. Which of these could/should be your motto?
“You don’t have to respond to every negative voice. You are better than that. Live above your circumstances.
No matter which one you pick, they all point to this thought from Benjamin Franklin.
Today and every Monday for a while you can hear chapters of my book The Pregnant Pause of Grief. It’s been almost 6 years since my Dear Ronald went to be with Jesus. I started to read the book again myself, just to see how far I have come since that first horrible grief. And then Hopestreamradio.com added it to their Monday roster. Tune in, won’t you? I pray it helps you as it helped me. Brenda J Wood
Fast Traffic certainly lives up to its name. It is a whirlwind of activity, travelling from the United States to Mexico with dabbles of Vietnam and Ireland. Although it is set in the 50’s it is highly current, considering the atmosphere in North America today. The author knows his subject well. There is a conflict between the United States and Mexico. The book is a mystery full of espionage, kidnapping and mafia. The lead characters push against the rules to get stuff done. Since one of the wives gets involved there is a trail of romance in spite of the constant danger. Surprisingly, I find it to often be a tender book in spite of the over all plot. The surprise ending will brighten your day.
What’s not to like? I learned a lot about government, combat and its participants. There is a lot of info about planes, their purposes and their set up, etc. Don’t in any way consider that this makes the book boring because it does not. It does have considerable strong language but it goes with the book. I am a foodie and Ferguson must be one too. His meal descriptions left me drooling. Quite frankly I think it would make a great movie or TV series. I did not understand some of the terms like BOQ and would have liked a bit more info on terms like that.
I got a free copy of Fast Traffic in exchange for a review for Readersfavorite.com.

Here’s my favourite stew recipe which is also in my latest book, The Food Lover’s Devotional. This recipe beats your favourite take-out on speed dial
1 ½ pounds stewing beef, rinsed and patted dry
Small jar of sweet pickled onions, drained
4 large carrots, peeled, cut in large chunks
4 medium potatoes, peeled, quartered
3-4 tablespoons salsa
1 can of cream of mushroom or celery soup
Layer the ingredients in crock-pot. Put the lid on, set the dial on low and simmer for four to six hours. It feeds four to six people but easily multiplies to feed a crowd.
