Sunny Sunday Poetry Special Feature~ Blog Tour Stop for the Child of Grace Book Series: To Die Once (Part 1 & 2)

Dear friends, This is a blog tour stop for my upcoming release, To Die Once, an inspirational romance in the Child of Grace book series! These poems were composed in honor of the release of this book. Stay tuned for part III, IV, V, VI & VII in the coming Sundays! Part I ~ The Love Story This is a love story Not one full of glory Diced with thorns, but not gory Oh, just listen to the story! Two unequally yoked hearts Come together as hinged carts At first it seemed pretty like the arts But soon came along piercing darts It began with a simple kiss Full of passion and even bliss But oh did they miss That without God their love was a diss You could see they felt so alive Much more than bees in a hive Like stars–awarded a perfect five Cos they swore to love’s depths they’d dive But soon the winds of trouble came blowing The thorns beneath the roses unfolding They pierced, they tore like a lion …

You can follow my reviews on Amazon, Goodreads, Shelfari and on my blog. And because I post on Scripity.com, you will find them there as well. Also took a break from researching Paris …

I Am Ruth

There are the days when the quote, “when one door closes, another one opens,” seems incomplete and inadequate. Why? It neglects to mention the waiting period between the closing of the old door and the opening of the new one. This waiting period is what some of us would like to call, the dark hallway. Let me explain. Between the two doors is an [imaginary] hallway—the place where we are when the old door of comfort, bliss, steadiness, normalcy or regularity has been shut, and the new one which should usher one into a place of certainty of the future, hasn’t been opened yet. It is a place of darkness, confusion, and sometimes even, depression and despair. In this place, it feels like your feet is not on solid ground. This hallway is the point where many doubts about past decisions arise, questions about the unsure present surface, and discouragement wages war against what was once a seemingly bright future. For any Christian going through this experience, it’s a defining moment in your life. If you’re …
