Herein are distinctly American holidays, excluding Christmas and Easter, which are global and more universal in nature, and much too expansive, requiring broader strokes than this shorter treatise can contain in its restricted space. Holidays remind our nation of Gods miracles: in His plan to fortify us all for lifes daily struggles. At Christmas, do our thoughts revolve around presents mostly? Is Easter only a warm anticipation of Spring, and is Thanksgiving, the quest for family reunion and a delicious meal? Remembering the spiritual origins of such special occassions affords us worship opportunities for Gods goodness to us, and to our families, friends and to our nation; through them we may reflect upon our blessings, while celebrating His greatness and bounty. Bearing in mind what holidays and vacations mean to our general well-being, let us exercise our down-time wisely as we each year of U.S.A. holidays, either head out or from the comfort of home, trade places without GPS-s, high gas, or air travel pat downs. Do come along then, for a free ride down some of my winding roads of personal experiences.
Two years after the day that her son, Matthew, was kidnapped in broad daylight in Central Park, Alexandra Moreland still finds herself torn between hope and despair. As no trace of Matthew was ever found, she has never been able to give him up for dead. But now, on what would have been Matthew's fifth birthday, photos surface that seem to show Alexandra kidnapping her own child. Then, as her bank accounts are suddenly drained, and her reputation as a successful architect comes under immense pressure, Alexandra begins to suspect that someone is using her credit cards to steal her identity. But who would want to ruin her so completely? Hounded by the press, under investigation by the police, attacked by both her angry ex-husband and a vindictive business rival, Alexandra, sustained only by her belief that Matthew is still alive, sets out to discover who is behind this cruel hoax. Little does she realize that with every step she takes toward the truth, she is putting herself -and those she loves most - in mortal danger.
