Book Spotlight: Love is a Rose by Pamela S. Thibodeaux #eggcerptexchange

Welcome to Pamela S. Thibodeaux today. Pamela is sharing Love is a Rose.

Here’s she is…

Since Lent and Easter are very special to me, I’d like to focus on my devotional Love is A Rose for this egg-cerpt exchange so here again are the details….

Music is the magical entry into the spirit world; the golden gate into the Kingdom of God. But we mustn’t be of the mindset that God only uses Christian music to reach out and touch our mind, heart and spirit. God uses any and every means available to speak to His children.

Our job is to be open and receptive.

In this devotional, Pamela S. Thibodeaux shares how God opened her spirit to a deeper understanding of the abundance of His grace and mercy through the words of the song, The Rose sung by Country & Western artist Conway Twitty.

Pamela offers Seeds to Ponder and a prayer as she parallels the love of God and the Christian life to each verse of the song.

EGG-CERPT:  Introduction

The Bible talks of harps playing and choirs of angelic hosts singing. It also tells us to “make a joyful noise unto the Lord.” The Israelites were ordered to send

the praise and worship team—playing musical instruments, dancing and singing—ahead of the soldiers into battle. So there must be something

special and powerful about music.

Music is an intricate element of worship, an aspect of praise that brings you into intimate proximity with the Lord. Music lifts you physically (fatigue

disappears, pain is forgotten), mentally (your mind is filled with it, erasing everything else), emotionally (you are saturated with joy and peace) and

spiritually (your spirit soars on the wings of His); opening your heart and mind to receive more of God’s presence, more of His truth.

Music is the magical entry into the spirit world; the golden gate into the Kingdom of God. But we mustn’t be of the mindset that God only uses Christian music to

reach out and touch our mind, heart and spirit. God uses any and every means available to speak to His children.

Our job is to be open and receptive.

Nearly every Christian song I hear touches my heart in some way, urging me into a closer walk with God and bringing me a truer knowledge of Jesus. Amazingly

though, the one song that really opened my spirit to a deeper understanding of the abundance of His grace and mercy wasn’t a Christian song but a Country one.

I’ll never forget the morning in 1995 when The Rose as performed by Conway Twitty came to me in its entirety with Bible references or Scriptures

correlating to every verse…

I immediately sat down and wrote the ensuing compilation paralleling the love of God and the life of a Christian to the words of this song.

Why do you suppose God used a country song to teach me about Himself?

I believe God was using a means familiar to me to show the depth and power of His love for me.

It is my prayer the words contained herein will do the same for you.

Before I begin, let me answer a few questions about myself. I am not a minister or even a candidate for the ministry. I have no degree or doctorate in psychology

or anything resembling either. I am simply a Christian housewife and mother who’s been blessed with a talent for writing and who desires to glorify the

Lord of my life with that talent.

As I said in my opening statement, the Lord led me to write this analogy so the words in it (and I’m sure He also led the songwriter to write such a beautiful

song) are His, guided through me by the power of the Holy Spirit to speak to you. So, let’s begin.

Gargoyle’s Embrace by Lisa Carlisle – Coming Soon

Very excited to share my release date for Gargoyle’s Embrace, a quickie (short story) in my Underground Encounters series with Ellora’s Cave. It will be released on November 27th, just in time for your Thanksgiving break!

Gargoyle’s Embrace

Fifth in the Underground Encounters series.gargoylesembrace_msr

Tracy isn’t sure why she’s drawn to a particular gargoyle statue in the Goth club where she works. After the stone takes human form to protect her from her abusive ex, she brings the handsome, naked male to her apartment. It’s impossible to ignore the seductive appeal of a man sculpted like a Viking warrior.

Danton has only hours in human form to spend with the woman he has hungered for. He’s convinced what’s between them is more than hot sex, but he needs to convince Tracy of that before he turns back to stone.

Headed to Romanticon! #rcon13

Tomorrow I head back to Ohio for my second Romanticon, the phenomenal conference put on by my publisher Ellora’s Cave. I’ve been looking forward to this pretty much since I returned last year. Why? Well, last year was my first time attending. I was a new author and didn’t know anyone. So going in was intimidating. But I was very excited to write for Ellora’s Cave and wanted to be part of this event.

My reservations vanished when I discovered how welcoming everyone was. Within the first hour, I was dancing with everyone at the welcome party. The conference got better and better. Nights out dancing when you’re a mom are rare, but I danced all weekend. The panels were fun and taught me all kinds of things I didn’t know. Zumba with the caveman was a blast. My final day was at the book signing. I met some lovely authors and readers and even sold some books!

Oh, I almost forgot the most perfect way to top this off. At an awards party, I was given a Rising Star award. I’m holding it in the picture with the Cavemen. Can you see why I’m excited about returning this year?

Rising Star at Romanticon

This year promises to be even better. I’ve met many more authors and readers online and am looking forward to meeting them in person. I met my fabulous editor  at the Book Expo American in NY earlier this year and will see her again. Also, I’m on a panel with three other authors who have written books for the On the Hunt theme, which came out earlier this year. So we’ll be leading readers on a fun scavenger hunt for some great prizes.

Stay tuned for more from this year’s Romanticon!
