RECONSTRUCTING AMELIA BY KIMBERLY McCREIGHT

Reconstructing Amelia By Kimberly McCreight

( The Anonymous Text Message )

Kate Baron, a single mother and a lawyer, was interrupted by a phone call with a disturbing new: her daughter Amelia caught cheating so the school had suspended. Kate can’t believe that Amelia, an intelligent and level-headed girl who’s never been in trouble would do something like that. But by the time she arrives at the Grace Hall, Kate’s faced with far more devastating news. Amelia is dead.

Seemingly unable to cope with what she’d done, a despondent Amelia has jumped from the school’s roof in an act of “spontaneous” suicide. At least that’s the story Grace Hall and the police tell Kate. And overwhelmed as she is by her own guilt and shattered by grief, it is the story that Kate believes until she gets the anonymous text : she didn’t jump.

sifting through Amelia’s text messages, social media postings and cell phone logs, Kate determined to learn the heartbreaking truth about why Amelia was on Grace Hall’s roof that day – and why she died.

What Are Your Thoughts On Genetic Modified Foods ( GMO ) ? 

If it was left with I alone, anything that has to do with GMO will be banned like food crops,animals and any kind of production of sort. Why can’t we allow nature to take it course? We as a world are dealing with so many diseases that sometimes we don’t know where they came from. Now that Russia has banned all export and halted production, I hope my country Ghana does the same. 

What is wrong with us at all?

RENEWING OUR STRENGTH IN GOD

Isaiah 40:31 – but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

When we remain hopeful, despite our waiting, God rewards us with renewed strength. Perhaps we witness His transforming love in another area of our lives, and it renews our hope for another. We can fly above the impatience and keep moving ahead of our worry, as long as we continue to wait in hopeful expectation for God to work.

Have a blessed sunday.
