AT THE SCENT OF WATER by Linda Nichols
This is a story of Samuel and Annie Truelove. Samuel is a gifted heart surgeon who married the love of his life, Annie. They had their home in the mountains of North Carolina and were blessed with a little girl. Tragedy will strike this family and deep sorrow will overtake them and they will run from each other and from their God. But God is faithful and will send people and circumstances into their life to draw them unto Him and back to each other. Be prepared to feel their sorrow and heartache and to shed some tears, but you will also see the hand of God at work and rejoice in how He works things out.
I will close with a poem you will read near the end of this story which if you never read this story you should at least read this poem,
"My life is but a weaving between my Lord and me.
I cannot choose the colors He works so steadily.
Oft times He weaves in sorrow, and I, in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper, and I the underside.
The dark threads are as needed in the Weaver's skillful hand,
As the threads of gold and silver in the pattern He has planned.
Not till the loom is silent and the shuttles case to fly
Will God unroll the canvas and explain the reason why."
