So when the leader of the book club unexpectedly passes away on the cusp of the Christmas season, the four remaining friends are stunned. They relied on Abby for inspiration and motivation. She was the glue that held them together, and they're sure that without her the group can't continue.

The stories you are about to read are fiction with some fictional characters. However, not all of the characters are fictional. You will find real history and actual places woven into these tales. The main characters in all of these stories are angels. Angels are mentioned at least 273 times in the Scriptures. The number of angels is incalculable. They are created spirit beings which are invisible unless they wish to be seen, and normally, that is in human form. They, like us, have free will. There are several different types of angels with different assignments to carry out. They all report to God, their Father. Today, it seems many Christian people only desire to believe in a God of love and not a God of vengeance and punishment. Yes, God is love, but He is other things as well. People seem to mistake God’s long-suffering for a change from His Old Testament persona to one that makes Him seem like a hippy of the 1960s. The Bible says that He is the same yesterday, today, and forever. I can’t visualize Him sitting on His throne making peace signs. He wasn’t a flower child in the Old Testament, so neither is He today. This book shows both a God of love and a God of justice. In this collection of stories as well as in the Bible, angels are sent to carry out His justice upon evildoers. In both this book and the Bible, angels are also sent to show His love for His children.

The doctor told Wanda that she had a fourth of an ovary and that child bearing was not an option. God had promised her that she would have children. Was God going to lie to her? God fulfills His promises. After years of waiting and trying, Wanda brought five children into this world and was a mother just as was promised. With the miracle came an unwanted price since we have come to believe that Heaven has a price on some of its most cherished of gifts. It wasn’t that it was authored by a loving God, but the seeds of cancer were sown as the gift was made real for five times. This young family would watch their mother succumb to a dreadful disease, slowly leaching the life from her. Wanda had a challenge understanding why the children she had been promised wouldn’t be hers to raise to adulthood. Christmas would come that year before she finally died in February and the gift she craved was just to understand God’s will in granting the blessing and then seemingly ripping it away in a slow death. Miracles happen to create life and miracles happen to explain why life gets cut short.
