1. The grass outside hides A cave where our dreams reside; Let’s shelter inside. 2. Keep On Pursue life and love There are enough death and hate, Keep forever safe – From thought of our causing harm, To these selves freely given. 3. Who will carry us When we have nothing to give, Like Winter bare trees? 4. Their desolation Lies thick as whimpering pups, Whose mother is lost. 5. Say, “Hello, today!” Yesterday has retreated Leaving vacant space; Tomorrow may not arrive For us, uncertain alive.
Inspired by Rachel Held Evans is the book I did not realize I needed until it took hold of my heart, mind, and soul. If you ever felt uncomfortable with some of the complex parts of scripture and wondered how they could be explained in light of God being a good, loving, and just deity, this might be helpful. The answers may not be easy, but at least this book enlightens and gives you a position of solidarity.
Lore by Alexandra Bracken follows the other mythological texts I seem to keep reading and shines brilliantly. This is a modern struggle between gods and humans in a race for survival and ascension. The writing is beautifully done, and the pace never lets one slip into boredom. I am enjoying it immensely.
I know Christianity and myth are not always embraced together, but I like a little lite with my seriousness. I am always in search of variety.
You might like one or both of these.
Blessings embrace you Every day in all things, ways, God be your love, peace.
