It’s been many a moon since I rode with the Rangers, and the yearning to do so again has been awakened. So yesterday, I went in search of my long mottled gray and green cloak  with its dark cowl, and my soft brown leather boots, worn and scuffed from more adventurous times. Both, cloak and boots, waiting ever so patiently as if they knew this day would come. Leaning over, the dust ridden high boots resting on the floor beneath an old chair, half covered-over by the woolen cloak, had somehow found comfort in the Mud Room of this hundred year old house of mine. A Mud Room rarely, if ever used.

And so it is that I’ve been summoned back to Castle Redmont in the Kingdom of Araluen. I nearly salivate at the thought of the battle ahead, as Morgarath, Lord of the Mountains of Rain and Night gathers his forces for an attack on the kingdom.

“The Rangers, with their dark cloaks and shadowy ways, have always made him nervous. And now fifteen-year-old Will has been chosen as a Ranger’s Apprentice. But what he doesn’t yet realize is that the Rangers, highly trained in the skills of battle and surveillance, are the protectors of the Kingdom who fight the battles before the battles reach the people.” (in-part) Goodreads

Since I’ve already reviewed this book here, I probably won’t do so again, however, I may (more than likely) make a mention or two of it throughout some of my future postings.

The Whisper of God

Years ago, I started writing down all the amazing ways God used my day-to-day activities, children, family, and nature to teach me. The more I wrote, the more I noticed our extraordinary God in my everyday ordinary life. It became an exercise of the heart and grew my relationship with Christ in a way I had never experienced. Opening up the Bible daily drew me into His will and wonderful ways. He was no longer a friend of a friend, but my personal friend. I began to hear God whisper His desires and lessons for me. Now, my goal is to encourage women to stop and listen for His whisper in their lives by sharing what God has taught me through my Bible Studies and devotionals.
