Resurrection in May or Maybe August

I’ve been all out of sorts lately what with all the doings and comings and goings.  No I don't need Flomax.  Isn't that just for men?  You know men who keep going and going and going?  Maybe that is a different drug like Seealice or viagrow or something.  I digress.

I have been so busy I haven't had time to read and for me that is like not having time to breath.    Resurrection in May, by Lisa Samson published by Thomas Nelson has been sitting on my reading shelf for some time.  I would walk past it and gently caress it as I walked by on my way to another seminar or mindless chore.  Finally I had a few spare moments.  I stole away into a nook with all intentions of reading just a few pages to get started.  The next thing I knew I was reading the words “the end”. 

May Seymour graduated from college misguided and misdirected.  She has spent her youth worrying way too much about what’s on the outside instead of what’s on the inside. She meets an older gentleman, Claudius Borne, who takes her in and gives her a new outlook. 

She didn’t know what else to do with her life, no job prospects and not sure about the world she decides on a mission trip to Rwanda.  May ended up in the wrong place at the wrong time and suffered through the losses and tragedies of Rwanda.  She lost everything including her faith in the genocide. 
She returns back to Claudius’ farm where she heals outwardly.  The story takes us through her struggles with her faith, herself and the outside world.  We learn with her to trust and love again.

This was such a sweet tale to envelope myself in for an afternoon of reading.  If you are looking for a sweet tale of reconnection then I recommend “Resurrection in May.”
