A Worldwide Disease A disease is widespread Walks around Sleeps in everyone’s bed Invades each home, heart & every head Does not come from without Originates from the within of us Does not travel on any windy gusts Or any stormy breeze It comes from our refusal to Bend the knee To a wonderful, sovereign God To worship only ourselves, The Me Me can destroy other lives That I of I Inside each human heart It struggles & resides To have its say Its own complete way Over everything Its indulgent siren’s song It loudly sings Causes wars, murders, theft Of all true affection, kindness It is most assuredly bereft By it, love is truly an orphan left We could have a brighter world Where only purest, perfection’s love Could dwell & on wings, joy’s songs would certainly swell If we could kill off that worldwide disease THE SELF!

I got to enjoy giving another review for a book. This one was for Amy Walsh’s book, A MISPLACED BEAUTY. It is a great book for anyone who loves period romances. It takes place in Victorian England, and the author manages to leave you with a good feel for what life was like for the upper class young women of that era. Georgina, the main protagonist, is a young woman living in Victorian London and enjoying the debutante season there. Struggling against her own poor choices and the expectations of her family and the society she lives in, she tries to find marital happiness for herself. What made the book more interesting is that the story is based on the actual diary of a young woman found during the restoration of one of the homes from that time period. The book has a strong Christian theme, and I enjoyed the chapters which brought in two famous ministers from that day, Dwight Moody and Charles Spurgeon. Overall, a clean romance and interesting read. The book is available on Amazon.com.
