“Alon, the ancient oak—the forest’s primeval icon—loomed. Its dark, edgy streaks wound around its bare, twisted trunk, forming black-eyed knots that stared through the shadows with contempt. Its branches sprawled over the forest canopy like mummy fingers, but it was the huge black hole in its trunk that still stirred embers around his nerves, even after all these years.”
This story is a fun adventure, filled with mystery, and it offers an overall theme that embraces the true meaning of faith while transporting readers to a faraway galaxy; a galaxy that may very well exist far beyond a telescope’s eye.
May God touch little hearts and minds in big ways and sprout the seeds of faith that will grow into mighty oaks.
God is our refuge where we can find solace. He is our strength. What a comfort to know. It’s my desire that children will learn to trust Him. He will not disappoint. His blessings are real and lasting. May He get the glory.
