Newsflash! New Book published

Hi everyone,

I just want to let you know that I published a new book on Amazon yesterday!.

Just after Easter, last year, I was inspired to gather all the writing and drawing I have done with an Easter theme and put them in a small book for people to use before Easter – perhaps in Holy Week – as they journey through the week with Jesus.

The book is called The Easter Story: Meditations in Poetry and Prose and it is available on Amazon for $1.14. Here is a snippet of the contents – entitled The Morning After it refers to the Upper Room on the Friday morning :

 The room is still the morning after.
 Bread crumbs scattered.
 An empty cup,
 Redolent still with wine.
 Tumbled cushions.
 Signs of hasty leaving,
 Door ajar.
 There, in the corner,
 A basin of grubby water
 Wrapped around by a damp towel,
 Crumpled in a heap.
 Sun rise brings light
 Streaming through the window.
 Streaming, shining.
 And on the water in the basin,
 Sparkling now with golden light,
 The shadow, the reflection
 Caused by window structure.
 The reflection, the shadow
 Of a Cross.
  
 Do you know what I have done for you? 

Check it out! May it bless you this Easter – and give you a fresh understanding of exactly what Jesus did for you and me.

God bless you.
