Learning To Trust
Seams Like Love by Judith Miller is a charming Christian historical novella. It is part of the book A Patchwork Christmas Collection. The snow on the ground is in complete contrast to the warm welcome that the reader receives.
There are the twin themes of faith and trust. Being hurt in the past has meant a character has walled up her heart. She needs to unleash the chains and learn to live and trust again.
Words spoken over us have the power to build up or tear down. An unkind remark in childhood has had a lasting impact on a life. We need to listen to the positive voice of God who says we are loved. We also need to curb our own tongues and think before we speak.
The story discusses inner and outer beauty. The world puts much value on outward appearances but God looks at the heart.
Life is like a patchwork. It is made up of a series of moments which sewn together make a life.
The characters were all delightfully drawn. The whole tale was warm and welcoming.
