This Blog is Dedicated to our dear friend Karen.
When she left this life she left a hole in our hearts as well as several to be read books.
We, her friends, will read these books for her.
This blog will be a sort of book club for us to post our thoughts and feelings about the stories and feelings we have of Karen while we read.

Embraced by the Light
A lot of thoughts as I read this book for Karen.
This is an account of a woman's near death experience. I often found myself with my mind wandering, wondering if this is what Karen had felt? Death is such a mystery. I loved the peace and love this woman felt when she passed. It gives us a reassurance of the love our Heavenly Father has for us.
Several times the book expressed that this mortal life is just a small part of our eternal existence, I too believe this.
There were many times I felt the book became a bit too preachy or shared things that may have been to sacred to share in a book.
However I could not find too much I disagree with or would argue.
Here are a couple of quoted from the book I enjoyed:
"We cannot swallow up their sorrow, and we can't plan their joy. All we can do is be a family".
"I have simply been impressed to live within the light of Jesus Christ and to continue to accept his love in my life." - I know Karen would have loved this quote
"We are to love one another. I know that. We are to be kind, to be tolerant, to give generous service. I know that greater joy will come to us through love than in any other way."
