Have you ever been offered just a little taste of the most decadent dessert? I got a taste of a new book yesterday, which is kind of the same thing, and decided I needed to share it. Because I am so very loving and generous. Or maybe because if I have to wait, others should share my misery.
Oh wait. Actually you don’t have to. I’ll tell you why in just a minute.
First, savor these thoughts. I mean really think about the hope and the grace they offer.
Healing grows best away from the glare of fluorescents and the heat of spotlights, in the quiet of “still waters,” which God tells us is the preferred environment for restoring our soul. ~Cythia Ruchti, Tattered and Mended
Worship silences noise. It transforms the moans of a wounded soul into a sound that reverberates through us, and through the halls of heaven. ~Cythia Ruchti, Tattered and Mended
Only the eye of creativity sees brokenness as pre-art. ~Cynthia Ruchti, Tattered and Mended
Tattered is not an irreversible condition, a label that indelibly marks us, our lot in life, or just-the-way-things-are-good-luck-with-that. ~Cynthia Ruchti, Tattered and Mended
So there you have it. Just a little taste or two of the beauty to be found in this book. If your soul is a little worn from wear or tattered from the fray, you should really consider reading this book. And I know. I know. Fiction is easier to read. (She writes that, too!) BUT sometimes…sometimes we need to hear (or read) words that speak deep into our soul and require us to ponder a little bit.
So. Here’s the deal. This book is on it’s way to me and there will be a giveaway at Middle Places later on, along with a full review after I’ve read it. But if you gobbled up these little tastes and CANNOT wait for a possible to chance to win it and don’t really care what I think about the book in regard to your decision to purchase it, you’re in luck. Today is the launch day and you can purchase it at your local bookstore (or fuss at them if they don’t have it!) or you can go download it or order a paper copy from this affiliate link at Amazon. Because, yeah. I’m a blogger and bloggers like to make a little penny here or there to help defray the costs of owning websites and such.
