"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not to your own understanding." (Proverbs 3:5) One of my very favorite things about Kimberla Lawson Roby's books is that she always incorporates God and Scripture into her work. Many authors are afraid to touch on religion. But it's clear to me that Ms. Roby knows from whence cometh her help and blessings. This "bite-sized" offering is perfect for after the holidays when you might be feeling down, or maybe you didn't get what you were looking for from family and friends, someone ignored you or you're feeling like you're alone in your struggle. Lose yourself in this book. Celine is worried that she's going to be facing her life-changing health crisis alone. But the Lord said "Not so." And when you can't depend on those that you've lifted up to return the favor, don't stop believing because help is on the way. I don't want to "spoil" the plot line, but I will say this, "Men may come and go, but a true friend will be around forever." Thanks, Kimberla for providing your fans with this encouraging read to start the New Year! On sale now in bookstores, online in print and e-reader editions! "Best Friends Forever," by Kimberla Lawson Roby.
Natalie Maria Cole (February 6, 1950 – December 31, 2015)
I can't stop thinking about how much wonderful music Natalie Cole brought to our hearts and homes. It was as if her dad, the late great, Nat King Cole never really passed away. And how ironic that she would leave this earth, just as we were listening to our last few days of "White Christmas." Even though we knew she was quite ill and had fought tremendous odds, beating addiction and surviving a kidney transplant, whenever we saw her on TV, she always had a smile and was so poised and put together. More than that, she was one of the first people that I can recall, you actually admitted that she wasn't perfect, that she struggled like all of us and that it's okay to fall - as long as you get up. I remember reading in "Jet" magazine back in the day about how happy she was to become a wife and then a mother. And, of course, there was the magical, almost "eerie" way she recorded with her dad, decades after he was gone. But what I remember most is the fun and good times we all had dancing and singing along to her music. It sounds cliché but she truly is gone but will never be forgotten.
