Miriam Hurdle let me know about her recent publication, Songs of Heartstrings.  I purchased this, my first book of poetry, so I could proudly present a review.  I’m not sure I can astutely review poetry, but here goes an attempt!

This was an enjoyable book.  I envision Miriam Hurdle as a modern psalmist, one who may not be a shepherd of sheep but still has a deep connection with creation and her creator.  This book of songs and tales has incredible richness and something for everyone.  Whether you’re in need for uplifting messages, comfort in times of trouble, or celebration of life, Hurdle has you covered.

        • Thank you, Margaret! I just sent out a message to my fellowship as the following.

          Mercy, Will, Autumn, Lynton and I arrived Hong Kong on January 12 to share the excitement of my sister Yolanda’s son Enoch’s wedding on January 19. We all had a wonderful time with my family. It was interesting to experience the combination of traditional and modern Chinese wedding. Mercy and Will went hiking by themselves multiple times on mountains unknown to me, thanks to the comprehensive system of Mass Transit Railway and light rail.

          The sad news was my other sister Canty had liver inflammation and hydrocephalus, congestive heart failure. She was admitted to the Emergency Room on January 15 and went with the Lord on January 17. She was blessed with her two sons, daughters-in-law and all the immediate family members (many from overseas) saying good-bye to her.
          We’ll be back to the US on January 25 after 5 days in Kyoto visiting Mercy’s and Will’s classmate and sightseeing.
