    I was excited to discover that Linda J White has a new book out. I have enjoyed all of her books. This is from ALL THAT I DREAD: A K-9 SEARCH AND RESCUE STORY
    “Suddenly, the ground gave way under my feet. Welcome to my life.”

    Polly was sad yet excited. This very morning at the breakfast table, her father had told the family that they were moving to Texas.

    My first line is from The Reluctant Bride by Jody Hedlund:
    London, England. May, 1862
    “Hang on a little longer, my lamb,” Mercy Wilkins shifted the listless infant in her arms without slowing her pace.

    “To say the least, it was inconsiderate of Diana’s almost-dead husband to show up at her engagement party,” is written by Robin Lee Hatcher in the first line of the first chapter of the book “Beloved”!

  5. “I wasn’t searching for a soul-shaking revelation or a life pursuit that evening in June of 1975 when I opened my Bible looking for something, anything, to share with a captive audience group of African students.”
    From the non-fiction book, Extreme Righteousness, by Tom Hovestol

    Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Cabbages and Kings: Reflections on Living Abundantly in Christ” by Dianne Barker:

    “I didn’t have an ordinary childhood and I didn’t have ordinary dreams.”
