I have exactly one review so far for my new book.
It may not seem like much at first, but take a closer look
And feast your eyes upon the splendor of five shining stars,
More beautiful to me than Saturn, Jupiter or Mars!
How precious glows the gem of one who took the time to write
And share her thoughts on how this story gave her such delight!
Some readers promise book reviews, but how many deliver?
That’s why I want to take the time to thank this cheerful giver.
To me, it’s like the widow’s mite, a gift straight from her heart.
No one can tell the value of this precious work of art.
Like Jesus multiplying food, I choose to magnify
What God can do with little and trust Him to multiply
The fruit of this beginning, which, though small, I won’t despise,
Because the tiniest of gems is mighty in God’s eyes.
What He can do with one review is more than I may know,
And so I’ll thank Him for this one and trust that it will grow
Into more feedback so that hungry readers may find out
What lies within this tale of mine and what it’s all about,
Because the focus isn’t money. It’s about the seed,
The precious truths within this book designed to meet the need
Of brokenhearted people searching for a little hope,
The ones left dangling as it were from a fraying rope.
I want somehow to reach them and to give them some relief,
Bring comfort to their aching souls and minimize their grief.
If one review can give a glimpse into this book of mine,
Then what can I not accomplish on this mission divine?
For truly it’s the little things that make a story great,
And when God shines on them, the work is never second-rate.
