Book Excerpt:

I looked up from the spindle as a mystifying radiance spun its way into the room. It came into my presence like the falling of olive blossoms in the breeze, white and gleaming. Awestruck, I watched as the light took on the form of a creature of light!

I rose quickly, my heart bolting like that of a newborn lamb. I moved away from the light until my back pressed against the mud-brick wall. A faint sound, like a lyre, could be heard as if music radiated from his snowy robe. His face shone. Could it have been the lingering glow from being near the throne of the Almighty?

“Greetings,” the angel said. “You who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”

I wanted to speak but could not. With tremulous hands I fingered my veil but did not lift it. What could this mean? What kind of greeting was this?

Book Review

The devotional is a great book to have in your library. The author has written forty chapters and has pulled different characters from the bible to teach us some of life lessons. Anita starts off each chapter with a fictional view point and moves into the actual story from the bible and finally bringing the story into this present time, which she titles "From Then and Now." She does an excellent job by attaching questions at the end of each chapter. I love the concept of the book and found it very enjoyable. Great for a woman's bible study group and home discussion.

Some of the chapters include:
1. The Woman Who Touched His Cloak
2. Joseph, Son of Jacob
3. Mary, Mother of Jesus
4. Peter

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Buoyancy Public Relations for my honest review.
