"God rewrote the text of my life when I opened the book of my heart to his eyes."
Psalm 18:24 (The Message)
Oops, I forgot to tell you about my new post on Jewels of Encouragement. How unlike me. (sarcasm)
My devotion was published on April 4 - Easter Eve. I originally titled it "Unburying the Cross" but when I posted it I changed it to "Resurrecting the Cross" for some reason. Seemed a more fitting word for the day, I guess. Anyway, I'd love you to read my story, and share yours if you have one. Click the pic below....
|"Resurrecting the Cross"|
I've been feeling spiritually empty and disconnected lately. Join me at Jewels of Encouragement today to read about how an obscure and confusing Bible story is helping bring my relationship with God back to life.
As much as this subject nagged at my spirit and my conscious this month, I'm thinking someone needs to hear this message. Or am I the only one? I did my best to express what God laid on my heart to share. I pray it blesses you.
You gotta have faith...
Ismeni: An eShort Prelude to The Legend of Sheba by Tosca Lee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
As I awaited the official release of Tosca Lee's newest masterwork, "The Legend of Sheba", I was thrilled when she snuck in a surprise - a 52-page morsel of prose to appease my cravings and whet my appetite for what was to come.
Ismeni sets the scene for Sheba, but could also stand alone as a short story. Fans of historical fiction and Biblical fiction alike will appreciate this glimpse at the life of woman literally born under the wrong stars However, much like Esther, circumstances worked to place her in a position of influence to the kingdom.
Tosca Lee managed to tell a fascinating story chock full of details and description in a brevity of words, and that takes talent. Because of the lightening speed of the storyline and the proliferation of ancient (i.e. hard to pronounce) names I got confused as to who was where and who was who a few times.
Ismeni's romantic bend caught me by surprise, but then I guess you can never really know what to expect from Tosca Lee's imagination and pen. As Ismeni herself said, "I should have known by then that nothing ever happened as I anticipated."
Legend of Sheba releases September 9, 2014. You can pre-order your copy today, but if you'd like a small appetizer while you wait, download Ismeni today. You won't be sorry.
