Theme Thursdays (Any Action)

Theme Thursdays is a fun weekly event, hosted by, that will be open from one thursday to the next. Anyone can participate in it. The rules are simple:
  • A theme will be posted each week (on Thursday’s)
  • Select a conversation/snippet/sentence from the current book you are reading
  • Mention the author and the title of the book along with your post
  • It is important that the theme is conveyed in the sentence (you don’t necessarily need to have the word)
Ex: If the theme is KISS; your sentence can have “They kissed so gently” or “Their lips touched each other” or “The smooch was so passionate”
This will give us a wonderful opportunity to explore and understand different writing styles and descriptive approaches adopted by authors.

This week's theme is:

ANACTION (go, walk, close, clap etc)

Here is mine:

When Lightning Strikes: One Man's Journey to Heaven and Back: A True Story of Hope and Grief"I pulled to the curb and ran over to Heather's bike. But when my hand touched it, I was instantly transported to a place not of this earth." 
From page 15 of When Lightning Strikes: One Man's Journey to Heaven and Back: A True Story of Hope and Grief
 Kay & Bobby Brunson


If you are afraid of dying, wonder about Heaven, or can't visualize your loved one with Jesus, then this is the book for you to read. 

My husband, Bobby Brunson, was struck by lightning and died for 28 recorded minutes, only to return with a stunning, life-altering glimpse of the hereafter. Here, he recounts his journey to our Heavenly home and lends his perspective on death. Bobby shares his story with people in churches, hospitals, civic meetings, and any occasion that may present itself. Thousands have seen the expression of joy on his face when he talks about Jesus. His love in sharing his trip to Heaven with others is contagious, and his trust in God in the realities of everyday living is real. 

This is a message of hope for the terminally ill, a message of peace for those whose loved ones have passed on, and a book filled with his anticipation of seeing our Lord again. Bobby's message is simple:

"God loves us all the same, don't sweat the small stuff, and live life in a way to make Heaven your ultimate home." 

The story of Bobby walking on golden streets, talking with his deceased father, and holding the hand of Jesus make it a must read for those looking for assurance and a way to deal with death and dying. I have watched as Bobby has talked with people and witnessed their enthusiasm to talk with a man who talked with Jesus. His story never fails to touch them, and it won't fail to touch you.

    This is interesting in the context of this week's theme challenge because here we have an action that leads to something that isn't a direct consequence of it. So it really does seem as if something supernatural is at work!
