Sunday Inspiration: People Are Like Stained Glass

people are like stained glass

Since my new book is coming out this week, I thought you might appreciate quotes about light for my next few Sunday Inspirations.

If you read The Color of Light you’ll see that a rose window plays a large part in the story. This quote spoke to me since some of my characters struggle to let light shine from within during dark periods in their lives.

At times all of us live in darkness. Depression, grief, loneliness, or fear.  If we can’t find the light to guide us, the future can seem bleak.

In The Color of Light, Analiese, Isaiah and Shiloh search for the light within, but it isn’t easy for any of them. The obstacles are many, and the search requires courage and faith. Like stained-glass, people can also shatter into many pieces.

Writing this novel made me examine my own search for light and enlightenment. I hope you’ll find both in this novel or in others you choose to read this summer.

    I cannot wait to read it – and know that I will find both of those things. Love this series.

    This summer I have read “Wedding Ring” twice. Once before holding my parents estate sale and again after. My mother was a quilter and had the fabric stash that entails. The relationships in your books and your characters coming to understand more about each other have given me more of a sense of peace about my family as we struggle to let go of stuff and find renewed relationships.

      I’m so glad Wedding Ring had special meaning for you. Thanks for letting me know.
