Fate of the Watchman by Chad Pettit Book Review

BOOK REVIEW Fate of the Watchman is a tale about Luster's life.  He only thinks about himself.  We are taken on his journey of experiencing violence, homelessness, and persecution. All of this leads him to God.  This book reminds a lot like Its a Wonderful Life and   A Christmas Carol .  The beginning was a tad on the slow side and I really wish they gave more character depth, but it did have a great cliffhanger.  Very inspiring and even at time suspenseful. I would recommend this short story series and can't wait to read the next book by Chad Pettit. ABOUT THE BOOK Lester Sharp is a workaholic, obsessed with the success of his business and oblivious to the world around him. All of that changes when a peculiar stranger comes into his shop asking for food and help. Lester soon finds himself on an impossible journey around the world to bear witness to some of the greatest tragedies a person can know, all frozen in a single moment of time.   In this challenging

First Christmas Card Have you ever wondered when Christmas Cards started?  It all started when Sir Cole and J.C. Horsely got together and sketched out a  triptych showing a family at a table celebrating the holiday flanked by images of people helping the poor.  At the top of each was the salutation, "To______" allowing Cole to personalize his response which included the generic greeting "A Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year To You." The first Christmas card originated in the United States in 1875 from Louis Prang, a Prussian immigrant who had a print shop near Boston. The modern Christmas card industry, according to Smithsonian Magazine, began in 1915, when a Kansas City-based fledgling postcard printing company started by Joyce Hall, later to be joined by his brothers Rollie and William, published its first-holiday card. During late 1910s J.C Hall put "hallmark" used by goldsmiths as a marking quality. In 1928, the company began marketing its bra
