His Perfect Timing
Fall Flip by Denise Weimer is a delightful contemporary Christian romance. The novel has the central themes of restoration and new beginnings. Within the novel there is a house that is being renovated for a couple celebrating fifty years of marriage. Running parallel are lives that need restoring, and with God’s help, new beginnings are possible.
Being true to yourself is important. Sometimes we put on a performance for the world but we really need to show our true selves. Life is not all about performing, life is for living in freedom and truth.
Life deals us blows, blows from which we wonder if we will ever recover. We feel alone but there is One who will never leave us. “I’m still here, a voice whispered in her head. I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
Forgiveness is important. It is as much for our sake as for others. If we want to live in freedom, we must forgive or risk becoming bitter. “With God’s help… I forgave [her]… because the anger… was eating me up inside.”
We must not judge. We do not know what others are going through. We need to dispense grace and leave the rest up to God. “Give a person a chance, and leave the rest in God’s hands.”
Prayer is important. We should pray about everything – the big things and the small – we want God’s guidance in every area of our lives.
Denise Weimer has created a delightful set of characters from the very young to the very old. Her descriptions bring the characters to life in glorious 3D. The reader can almost ‘see’ their interactions. Likewise, comprehensive descriptions enable the reader to ‘walk’ through the action.
I absolutely adored Fall Flip. I think it would make a fabulous Hallmark movie. I always love Denise Weimer’s novels. They leave me smiling.
I received this book for free. A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.
