Using Our Talents
Luna Rosa by Elizabeth Maddrey is a delightful contemporary Christian romance. It is the second book in the A Tuscan Legacy series that is a collection of stories by different authors linked by characters and themes. I have read the first book in the series so it was great to delve deeper into one of the characters. It can be read as a stand-alone too.
Elizabeth Maddrey always writes light hearted fun books that are deeply rooted in God. The main theme of Luna Rosa is using the talents God has given us. “We have to use the gifts God gives us… they’re our way to reach the world for Him.” Fear is a ploy from the enemy who never wants us to fulfil our God given potential.
Work should not be seen as a chore. “I offer that work to God as an act of worship.” Everything we do can be turned into worship to thank God for His goodness.
Church is important. Meeting together corporately once a week was Jesus’ idea. Meeting with other believers will support and strengthen our walk with God.
Prayer is our hotline to God. “He’s been praying, but not intently… and he wasn’t… listening either.” As with all relationships, prayer needs to be attentive and we need to listen for answers.
Nicknames show comfortability with each other. It signifies a move towards another in a relationship.
Family is vital. The church family and our blood family. To lose a parent will affect us deeply. We may keep their memory alive through the medium of the arts.
No one should go through life alone. We need to listen to God’s plans for our lives and pray about everything, including life partners.
We all need encouragers. Encouraging is a gift from God.
Luna Rosa was so delightful. Such a heart warming story to brighten any day.
