One Week and Counting

I'm just one short week away from the release of my new book

Encounters With Jesus

Encounters With Jesus Full Cover

The current plan is to have the kindle version will be available for purchase NEXT MONDAY!!

I can't tell you how excited I am about the book's release.

Here is an excerpt from one of the stories...

Crumbs for a Dog

---

He spoke again.

“It’s not right to take bread out of children’s mouths and throw it to dogs.”

If anyone else had said that to me, it would have hurt. Another slap in the face. But coming from Him, I knew I had no right, no entitlement, to special treatment. And yet there was compassion in the air, drawing me in, bidding me come and ask again.

“You’re right, Master, but beggar dogs do get scraps from the master’s table.”

All was silent for a moment, and then He laughed. He wasn’t mocking me. It was more like my words found their way through a crack in a wall. Not a wall of His making or mine, but a wall that separated us nonetheless. My humility mingled with His compassion dissolved the boundary that seconds ago stood as a roadblock to my salvation.

His laughter was infectious. Soon I was laughing, too, as were all the men who stood with Him.

“Oh, woman, your faith is something else. What you want is what you get!”

There was a glee in His voice, a delight, as though granting my deepest need gave Him His deepest joy.

Thanks for poking your head in

See you again soon
