Surrender the Heart

"Surrender the Heart"
MaryLu Tyndall
Surrender to Destiny - Book One

A Mistrustful Young Lady Desperate to Save Her Family... A Guilt-Driven Man Desperate to Please His... Both Caught On The Brink Of A War That Could Change The Course Of History Forever.

On the brink of the War of 1812, Marianne Denton must marry to unlock her inheritance. Without the money, her mother can't receive medical care and her sister will be destitute. But Noah Brenin needs to sail his cargo to England before the war commences in order to prove his worth to his father and make enough money so he won't have to marry at all.

Defying his father's wishes, Noah loathes the idea of marrying a woman he finds plain and pompous. Marianne wants nothing to do with the rogue who taunted her as a child, yet she must convince him otherwise or her mother will die.

But when Noah walks out on their engagement party, Marianne chases him down and ends up on his merchantman out at sea. The situation worsens when Noah's ship encounters a British man-of-war and the couple are impressed into the British navy. While a young lad's prophecy of destiny looms over them both, Marianne and Noah are forced to face their darkest fears as they desperately try to find a way to escape and fulfill their destinies-destinies that could change the course of the war and history forever.

My Review

I have very much enjoyed reading this book, "Surrender the Heart" by MaryLu Tyndall.  Marianne Denton, an ordinary young lady who feels like she will never be good enough, especially when she is captured on a British navy at sea. Noah Brenin, a driven man to keep his father's merchant business afloat to have his own father approve of him from a past accident of his youth, but then to realizing something else of more importance.

After reading, "Surrender the Heart", I saw how Marianne and Noah faced their darkest fears as they tried to find a way to escape and fulfill their own destinies. I even noticed how much both needed God in their lives, to have trust in God, knowing that no matter what God has always been with them, and God's destiny for both of them! To conclude, "Surrender the Heart" is filled with lots of action, adventure, drama, and a love story to where I just want to keep on reading to find out what is going to happen next through the whole story!

Prayer for Comfort of a Lost Dog

Prayer for Comfort of a Lost Dog

God listen to my prayer,
I am miserable with unhappiness in my spirit.
While I was sleeping the night before it happened, I fear,
That I was going to lose my lovable pet.

Half the nighttime I cried in my sleep,
I had dreadful thoughts that I was right.
As I slept a scary dream came a peep,
My lovable dog and I were in danger that night.

Both of us got injured in my dream,
But in reality both of us were wounded in separate ways.
My dog, gone to another place from no harm,
And I was feeling the loss in my heart with weeping cries.

I’m still on earth missing her being by my side,
Not being able to feel her wet licks on my face,
Not being able to see her do tricks as she tried,
Plus not being able to walk her to any kind of place.

I never even got to say good-bye,
But at least I got to say I love you.
All mornings and nights, I sigh,
But how can I stop, without her I’m blue.

My sweet little dog passed away on August first,
Slowly and quietly without making a weeping sound.
I wish I went first,
Because it hurts to lose her, my lovable friend.

Then God you gave me a gift that made me thankful,
Instead of me moaning, every single day,
It was a dream with my special dog that was wonderful,
To have on my fifteen birthday.

I could not ask for a greater present,
Cause You made it real lovingly.
There are still sometimes when I cry at night,
But that is because I still miss her dearly.

Corky, my Yorkshire Terrier, will never be ancient history,
She will stay forever in my heart.
To me she was worth more than jewelry,
So her life and my life will stay one part.

Giving Thanks

Giving Thanks

I give thanks unto the Lord,
He is my shepherd.
He leads me on a rightful pathway,
Thankful that He will not lead me astray.

Giving thanks unto the Lord,
He has given me what I need.
I have been blessed with eternal life for the future,
What more can I be thankful for!?
