“The Scent of Maple” is now available to read online in the Spring/Summer 2015 issue of Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s literary journal, Westview.
“The Scent of Maple” is a story about the unlikely friendship of a woman named Annie and a curious five-year-old named Ben. You can read it on page 15 of the journal here.
Hope you enjoy the story.
In my little office I have a few bookshelves reserved for books that are ‘keepers,’ the ones I’ve read and keep, knowing I’ll read them again and again.
If you find yourself in the margins this Christmas season, know that there is One who sees you. He was born into and lived His life in the margins and He'll meet you right where you are.
Even in loss, moments of joy pop up unexpectedly like wildflowers. It takes a focused eye to appreciate their beauty.
I'm honored to be guest posting today at Anita Mathias' blog, Dreaming Beneath the Spires. I’ve both enjoyed and been inspired by Anita’s writing on life and faith.
