I Love a Good Mystery!

Ruby in South Africa – Thoughts on Chapter 8


A Ruby Christmas FULL COVER

Today’s author, Debbie Roome, takes Ruby to Capetown, South Africa. I love the imagery of this chapter.

Reminds me of the song, Some Children See Him. The words express how different races imagine to resemble them.

Of course we know he was born a Jew, but children especially will see Him like themselves. The cool thing is, the Lord sees us like Himself. We as a whole might have the look of a box of assorted chocolates, but to God we’re the spitting image of Jesus.

Genesis 1:27 says: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”

That encourages me. In the midst of my low times I can recall how much I resemble my Father. How I am a member of His royal family. Picks me right up.

Your Turn: When you reach low points, where do you find encouragement?

She spends her days directing the children’s music program at her church and working with the authors of Write Integrity Press to put out the best possible version of their books. Raised in suburban Dallas, she got her first taste of writing through the stories of brilliant authors of their day, Mignon Eberhart and Phyllis A. Whitney, and through stage experience. After directing and acting in productions for decades, Marji started writing her own scripts. From that early beginning, she delved into creating scintillating suspense with a side of Texas sassy. She invites readers to unravel their inspiration, seeking a deeper knowledge of the Lord’s Great Mystery that invites us all.

  1. I am encouraged by the fact that this world is not my home. My home will be a place of eternal peace and contentment.
