At the beginning of this year, I picked a word: poem.
Some people have asked me why. Here’s the reason: I picked this word because I’m a writer, but I stink at poetry. Like, terribly. I don’t even try anymore. ;)
Thus, picking a word like poem to encompass this whole year is pretty un-comfortable. It’s daring. It’s out-there. It’s scary. It’s my way of saying that I trust Jesus to write my life story as only He can. I can’t write my own life any better than I can write poetry.
But He can craft a beautiful story. With a shy girl holding a ring and a pen.
Today feels like a pretty pivotal Poem day.
Isn’t she beautiful? Within these pages, Gwyn and Dirk’s story comes to a close. Their journey ends…Indeed, what a journey telling their story has been! About this time last year, pre-order links for Book One, The Sound of Diamonds, were coming up, and I had been dating Devin for just a month…
Now the finale is here, the saga is coming to a close, and I’m marrying him. <– new posts about our Love Story coming soon
Today Dirk and Gwyn get to tell the end to their story, a story that captured my heart four years ago and hasn’t let go. I’m too pleased to finally be able to share it with all of you.
About the Series
In 16th-century Europe, the Reformation rages between Protestants and Catholics. Gwyneth, a half-Dutch Catholic, flees from England to Holland to escape the man who murdered her parents. When he follows her there and insists he came to rescue her, will she trust this man called Dirk? When tragedy strikes, will their steadfast love erode?
Thank you for celebrating Release Day with me!
