I’m thinking about what novel to read next, and haven‘t found one that appeals to me yet. So in the meantime, I’ve started reading Mae Briskin’s narratives, originally published in literary magazines between 1975 and 1988.

Here is an author I know very little about. She began writing when in her mid 40s, and to my knowledge, has only published three books: this one, A Boy Like Astrid’s Mother – 1988; The Tree Still Stands – 1991; and, A Hole in the Water – 2002.

I’ve had Astrid’s Mother since 1988, and at that time, only just skimmed through it. Recently, by happenstance, I came across it as I was reorganizing some of my books. It‘s a good ‘filler’ until I find another novel to read (any suggestions?).

The Whisper of God

"Let us be silent, so that we may hear the whisper of God" Ralph Waldo Emerson ~~~ Several years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day to day activities, children, family, friends and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed God in my daily life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. I began to hear God whisper to my heart His desires and lessons for me. I hope that reading some of my stories will encourage you stop and listen for His whisper!
