A Precious Gift
The main theme is that of identity. We need to know who we are in God. Our identity is not to be found in our job or in the eyes of others. Our identity is to be found in being the unique person that God created us to be.
Manipulation of others is always wrong. It is a form of bullying that diminishes a character’s view of themselves. When self worth is rock bottom, we need others to build us up. “Another part of the wall surrounding her heart came down.”
An air of love pervades the story. We always blossom when we are loved. [She] “talks to me and listens to me. She makes me feel important.”
Seeing the individual is key. Within the book, age is more than just a number. With age comes wisdom. Season Of Miracles shows you are never too old to begin to live and love again.
There are some huge hearts within the novel. Beautiful friendships blossom in spite of a difference in ages.
Searching to belong is another theme. Earthly parents may abandon us but our heavenly Father adopts us and says we are loved.
Our veterans have given us so much. The novel shows the importance of remembering this and of helping our ex servicemen and women to feel wanted. We all owe them a debt we cannot repay – which reminds the reader that we also owe Jesus a debt we cannot repay.
Season Of Miracles is positively delightful. It will warm your heart and soul as you sink into this wonderful tale.
