I used to look around at this amazing earth and the astounding heavens, and wonder how I could ever be in the image of God ~ the Great Creator of all this.
He didn’t create a barren earth and then order people to get to work and plant something. He got everything just right. And then…. And then…. And then his crowning glory ~ he created us! Special us! But how could I feel special compared to my Great Creator?
Then one day I realized what he had done. I got it. He gave you and me a special gift: To be creators too. As perfect as he made the earth, he left some joyful things for us to create ourselves.
He left the jewels unmined, the buildings unbuilt, the songs unsung, the paintings unpainted, the ships unmade, the sculptures uncarved, the books unwritten.
Here I am surrounded by everything I need to imitate one part of God ~ his creative side. Today, I think I’ll create something.

BACK COVER of MEFIBOSET: CRIPPLED PRINCE
Denied the throne as king of Israel and crippled for life at age five, Sett spends his early years fleeing his grandfather King Saul’s enemies. Inheriting his gigantic grandfather’s height and good looks along with his father Jonathan’s positive attitude, Sett uses his wits to get out of life-threatening situations in Israel, Babylon, and Assyria. Despite his handicap, the beautiful Kissara becomes his wife, King David becomes his friend, and the forests become his mission. Though he must constantly deal with three enemies who do everything they can to make his life miserable, Mefiboset, grandson of a king, is an overcomer, a climber, a conqueror who triumphs in the end.
