If you like historic books–you will find this one interesting…

 Galileo by Mitch Stokes

Just to put him in some perspective,
Galileo was born in 1564, the same year as Shakespeare and the year that
Michelangelo and John Calvin died. His great mathematical mind forced the church
to look at scripture differently. His interests included science, engineering
and military technology. He developed the first 20 power spy glass, theories on
the sun, moon, comets and position of the tides. I was pleased to learn so much
about the man but disappointed that the book was a difficult read. It would have
made a wonderful true-to-life novel. Those who self-publish should take great
heart in his story because what ever difficulties we’ve had pale in comparison
to Galileo’s. Brenda J Wood

That’s why I had to pass this on; I didn’t want to risk it.

Now be honest. Haven’t we all made bad decisions like this at one time or another? The only remedy is to start making the right ones…..

God does forgive our mistakes and loves us anyway, enen though we still have to deal with the fallout.

 What if we did the same for others?

Example- “So you didn’t study for your finals and you failed? I love you. My love is not conditional to your graduating. However you will now need to find a job and start paying rent.”

Example- “So you insist on marrying this chap who controls you, I will love you–but note that I will not be paying the divorce lawyer.)
