Stone Crossings

My giveaway book came from
L.L. Barkat
( The Soul Tells A Story
by Vinita Hampton Wright)

and Laura's book: Stone Crossings:
Finding Grace in Hard and Hidden
Places arrived ON the same day
in the mail from two different places. Hmmm.......
one of those exact timing things of
God. Something to perk up my ears
like Oreo does when something
rustles. I started her book last night
and just couldn't keep my eyes open
as it was late. This morning,
I awoke to read another
chapter. Her story brings beauty to
an abusive childhood and I felt like I
was in an ethereal bath of light by
her words. I love those times when
I gaze on Christ's beauty ..what King
David asked of the Lord in Psalm 27.

4. One thing I ask of the LORD,
this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple

Emma's photo? The light is beautiful. Both books on the same day! Sounds like God ordained that! (doesn't He always).

I've read something by Vinita Hampton Wright, but can't remember the title...enjoyed it, though. :)
