    Highly Recommend

    Every morning, my grandmother and I read a few pages out of this book every morning to be our prayer for the day. Sadly, the book is very old and quite "torn up." Many of the pages are ripped. It became so bad that many of the pages became unreadable. I promised her I would find this book somewhere and buy it for her. The first stop we made for her birthday shopping was Barnes and Noble. We asked a Sales Person and he said that they had a few in stock. On my grandma's birthday, when she unwrapped this present, she was so happy. My grandma loved reading this book. Along with this book, we bought her a $15 gift card to Barnes and Noble for her future book spending. Thank you Barnes and Noble. Another customer of yours is once again satisfied with their purchase.

    Second to My Bibles, It's My Favorite Book

    When I am lonely and have no one to talk with, I open this book and let the pages fall where they may. No matter why I am crying or sad or confused, the pages open to the thing that God wants me to know about how much He loves me and all the good He wants for me in that moment! Since 2006, I'v been writing notes in the margins (responses back to Papa, Adonai, God)as I read what God just said to me on the pages. This book is so encouraging and personal and intimate; I feel as though I am sitting on a loveseat, snuggled in the arms of the Lord as He assures me of His love. Every page is filled with evidence taken straight from the Bibe, but in everyday (the more recent editions substitute "you" for "ye" and "thou") and very tender language. I've bought about 10 copies to give to friends, and now they are so much more in love with Him. It's the very best gift to give to a young person going away to college, to a single friend, a solitary senior citizen (like me), or to someone who does not know the Lord and feels alone! This book can introduce them to the Bible, or at the least, open their curiosity enough for them to go find a Bible and keep seeking. I love it and thank God she wrote it!!!!!!

    Great Book!

    I purchased this book as a gift, but I have a older copy for myself that I cherish. The cover is different, but whenever I feel as though I need to hear from God, I grab this book. It is like having a spiritual meal at your fingertips. I just hope the person I gave this to enjoys her copy as much as I have enjoyed mine.

    Personal Time with God

    When a friend introduced me to this book approximately 10 years ago. I could not put it down. You start reading one inspirational writing and you just want to keep going. The writings speak right to your heart and you find yourself in God's presence and you don't want to leave, the words draw you in and fill you. Some of the writings make you examine yourself in a deeper way. You will start to think about how you treat people, and what is God trying to tell you about yourself.

    This book is a blessing

    An Evangelist friend of mine handed me this book one day when I was going through something. She told me to open it and just read the first thing I see. I did that and it applied to my life as of that day. It was encouraging. I think everyone would enjoy it. It's had the same result to everyone that I hand it too as well.

    Hannah) YOU WILL PULL THROUGH. You're a strong person. It seems like with what your mom said about having nobody to care for her, she knew that you care for her. Under all the pain, depression, and anger, there's a tiny spark of love buried deep inside your mother. Maybe she covers it up for a reason. Maybe she's been hurt too many times to make herself vulnerable again. Perhaps that isn't the reason, but l don't want to think of her as pure evil. <br>
    <p>
    Please, please, please open a Bible this Sunday if you can. It's Easter, when Jesus rose from the grave. It was on the Friday before when He died for our sins on the cross. He died for your sins and your mothers'. He sacrificed Himself so you could live a perfect life in Heaven. He took all the sins of the world and paid for each and every one of them with his life. You know that. <br>
    <p>
    More in the next result. <br>

    Hannah, I love you and want you to be happy. Your mom shouldnt treat you and your sibilings like that. She brought you into this world and she should chaish that not throw it awa and treat you like garabage! I get yelled at by my parents alot and do you know wha I do? I just take a deep breath and shake it off and say to myself 'Jesus has suffered and died on the cross. He has fallen and has gotten up to save us so why cant i do the same for him' and I dont always think that but it helps. Dearie, God loves you and always will. All of the things that are happening are the devils magic. Dont give into that magic of hatered and darkness. Have complete trust in God. Pray everyday that He will help. And it may seem that Hes not helping you but He is. You also have a part in the process of Him helping you. People who cant that your also human are complete idiots. People make mistakes and thats what makes us human. Not everyone is perfect not even myself. Certan people just see others luke them,human but others see them as something else and they decide to treat them like garabage. Dont let those kinds of people get to you Hannah. Jesus died on the cross for us. To save us from sin and all evil. And the part that we have in tha is to pray. Trust in Him. I love you Hannah and want you to be happy. Just try to talk to your mom about how you feel and if she doesnt listen then thats her fault. Just remind her that Jesus died on the cross for us and i she doesnt care then tell her she should do the same. For others. For Him. That we should be an example of Christ and his cross. Ill be praying for you Hannah and hope you get through what your going through right now alright. <br> Much love <br> ~ Ludmila Sofia Theriualt &hearts Aka Darkstar

    Hannah,<p>I know I haven't known you for nearly as long as these other awesome guys. But all the same, I think of you as one of the greatest friends a crazy white kid could have on NOOK. You're honest, you don't mince words, and you care to the sky and back. You really changed my life for the better.<p>Hannah, I don't want you to look back on these times with longing and sorrow and hatred against yourself. Look back on them, and remember us, your friends, at our best times. Find the best memories, and latch on to them like there's no tomorrow. I will never, ever hate you for anything you'll do. And that's something friends do.<p>I've been an rper for a very, very long time. And I don't know when--heck, or if-- I'll stop. But in all that time, I've never found an rper so fascinating, so wonderously complex, so absolutely amazing as you. You really know how to do your stuff. You're creative, funny, grammatically correct, and it's something to be proud of.<p>And lastly, about your mom. She may not know it, but I know you care about her. That's why it hurt so badly to leave her for the night. So don't beat yourself up about it.<p>You are not broken. I know you've said that a lot, but I don't believe it. I think that, maybe, you're just complete in a different, more beautifully mystifying way than anyone else has been. You are you. And I wouldn't want you to be anything else. Because that's where you are whole. And in completeness is where we rejoice.<p>I want to say everything. But I can't. So I'll say this: whenever you come back from MH, I'll be here, waiting for you. I swear on my an<_>al virginity.<p>Yours, through Fire and Flame,<p>Paladyn, Aka Gargamel, Aka Luke

    I love you. There's a great friend under that pain of yours, just push past it all and even if you still feel negative in any way, smile. Smile een if you don't feel like it. Force a laugh. Think to yourself 'I am amazing' and never let it out of your mind.then you will see all the good things you have in life, and those will eventually over power the cons. It's what I heard once on TV, but what she said was a different topic. It's a bit like this: 'If you think you're fat, push that aside. Replace that thought with 'I am beautful', and eventually, you will see that beautiful.' Something like that. Now, I'm not here to give you a long cheesy post about not commiting suicide. I'm here to give you new ideas about happiness. Enough said. <p> ~ Ariel Leanna Reed <p> [Please don't come kill me! I give you my name in respect, don't take advantage of it! This is to all creepy stalkers out there. I got my eyes on you >:3]

    Hannah - Update #1

    Yes it's me. The girl who threatened suicide the other day, crying her eyeballs out. I ended up grabbing a jumprope from my drawer, running outside to find the tree that would claim my life. It was an easy death, right? I'd feel no pain at all. Unfortunately, all these trees were made up of pines, a walnut tree, and cherry tree. Pine trees not only have high up branches, but they're thin and flimsy. The walnut tree had high limbs too, and the cherry tree was dead and every time I tried to cling to a branch, it began crackling. I was afraid to fall and actually feel pain. I just wanted to end the pain, not add physical pain to it. I ended up sitting on the cold wet ground, crying my eyes out for the majority of the night. Leaving the jumprope outside, I went back inside to think of another method for suicide. It was then that my mom told me that my sister had texted at 5:00 pm and it was now 9 pm. (This was Friday, and also remember that I have no electric. My neighbours are super nice and let us charge our electronics over there. My mom left her phone on the charger while she came back into our house, only going to get her phone a few hours later.) My sister offered for me to stay at her house, so I wouldn't have to freeze and so I'd have enough food to eat and things to do. Well, my mom asked if I wanted to go, and I debated on this. The pros were: food, heat, video games, a loving sister and brother-in-law. The cons were: leave my mom in the dark and cold, have no food and freeze to death, have nothing to do. So I finally told my mom that yes, I would leave to my sister's. My sister, even though tired at this time (she goes to bed around 10:00/10:30) agreed to come and get me. Well, while I was packing my things so I could stay there a few days, I thought I heard crying. I go into my mom's room and she's sobbing and yelling at me, "I have nobody to care about /me/! I thought at least you loved me but apparently not! Fu<_>ck you, just go!" Crushed, I began crying, guilty as heck. Just when I was about to tell her to forget it, my sister arrived. I couldn't just tell her to leave, could I? So I hugged my mom, asking if I should just stay one night and come back (oh yeah, forgot to mention: my mom gets her disability check on the first so she was planning to get the electric turned back on on Monday) Well, she just told me to "get out." So I did. I wasn't about to let her treat me like cr<_>ap. So I took my belongings and stayed at my sister's. Well yesterday she treated my other sister like cr<_>ap, telling her that her and her two kids (one's three-almost four and the other is a little over a year.) had to get the fu<_>ck out of her house, and the next time she seen her that she was gonna "kick her as<_>s". Like, forreal. She had my older sister, my other older sister, my brother, and I all in tears. All of us. From Friday all the way to today. So my sister has been staying at her boyfriend's one room apartment with her two kids. She kicked my brother out, only to let him come back and stay. And today she told my other sister that "I have to come home so I can walk with her to her doctor's appointment tomorrow." Guess what? My sister takes me home, otherwise we KNOW my mom will call the police, and come to find out, someone is driving my mom to her appointment tomorrow. T~T She KNOWS she has control over me, and it makes her feel better. That's why she sent me back into no electricity. Well, outta characters. I miss yah'll. :( ~Randi

    Listen, dont be the pessimist who thinks that the light at the end of a tunnel is a train. I have a dare for you. This is called the butterfly project. It sounds stupid, im sure. Anywhere on yourself, draw a butterfly. This butterfly can be named after me, Jacob. Jacob is a butterfly that is both left handed and autistic. His stepdad was arrested for several felonies and he moved to another state twice. His dad lives 200 miles away with his wife, who calls Jacob's mom a selfish bit<_>ch. Jacob is very smart with an iq of over 100 but his sister steals stuff from him and thinks he wont be anything in the future. But Jacob believes anyone can be happy at good times, it takes a good person to be happy at bad times. Jacob is very happy. I am Jacob. If you cut yourself, scrub Jacob off, or commit suicide, Jacob dies. Please try this. It helped me

    Biblically based, this book reads as if the Lord is speaking to you and your concerns. I keep it by my bed with my Bible. An excellent daily devotional, reading one entry at a time. The cover is soft leather, even beautiful to the touch.

    Love Letters from God

    I have had this book for 30 years and am still drawn to it. When I tell people about it I tell them it's a book of love letters from God. It sits on an end table in my living room and from time to time it seems to call out to me saying 'read me.' I pick it up and look at the section headings page. One section seems to stand out. Then I look at the list of enteries for that section and one entry always stands out from the others. I read that entry. Every single time that entry is EXACTLY what I need to hear at that moment. Last night when I was creating a webpage offering Hurricane Katrina help and encouragement I immediately thought of this book and, wouldn't you know it, there was an entry that was perfect. One line said 'Yea, thou shalt walk upon the waves, and the storm shall but drive thee more quickly to the desired port.' What a wonderful confirmation that all things that happen to us are meant for the good.

    IT TOUCHES THE SOUL OF THE READER

    My best friend gave me a copy of 'COME AWAY MY BELOVED' a few years ago.It is one of the most amazing books I have ever read next to the Bible. I prayerfully pick it up and open it at random and it is as if God Speaks to my present circumstance. I have handed it to friends and family and asked them to do the same and they are amazed, even the non-Christian ones feel as if they have been spoken to. Also I have been on the phone talking long distance with someone and have read to them with the same results. Words truly from the Heart of God.
