CHRISTMAS DELIGHTS

by Yvonne Lehman
Two more delightful books have been
released in the Moments series. Previous ones are Divine Moments,
Christmas Moments, 
and Spoken Moments. These are being
widely acclaimed as memorable and life changing. First of the recent is Precious, Precocious Moments. In this book from 45 authors run the gamut of emotions
including laughter, love, loss, acceptance, forgiveness, grief, longing,
despair, joy, thankfulness, and courage. 
Their stories tell of adults
teaching children, children teaching adults and, best of all, the awareness
that God does indeed know and care, and if we seek him we find him because he
is waiting for us with open arms, ready to show us the beauty in life…often,
through a child.
Thanks and gratitude to the contributors,
who receive no payment, and all royalties go to Samaritan’s Purse, which
provides spiritual and physical aid to hurting people around the world.
Contributors are: Carolyn Barnum,
Robin Bayne, Shirley G. Brosius, Elsie H. Brunk, Rob Buck, Mirjam Budarz, Joann
Claypoole, Autumn Conley, Tracy Crump, Greg Dodd, Susan Dollyhigh, Susan

Today I received this comment,
“It’s after midnight and I just got my hands on a copy of More Christmas Moments and can’t stop reading it. I love everything
about this book from the cover to the content. So special!”
More special are those who
contribute just to share their stories, expecting nothing in return. Well… not
expecting, but knowing we just can’t give without God blessing us mightily.
What a privilege to touch the hearts and lives of others.
