Cherished by Kim Cash Tate Book Review

Kim Cash Tate has done it again with another great book called “Cherished : A Novel of Unconditional Love.” “Cherished” tells the story of Kelli London, a young woman that dreamed of one day becoming a songwriter.

But bad decisions eventually led to tragic and devastating consequences that destroyed her long held dreams of music and love, until God opens her heart to hope and dream again through a series of love letters.

It’s Been A While

It’s been a while since I’ve posted so I wanted to catch up with you all. A lot has been going on in my life so I haven’t had the focus I’ve needed to write here regularly. But I have not abandoned Reflections of a Queen. I have no intention of ever doing that. This is one of my favorite places to be and I love sharing with you.

As you know, 2011 is right around the corner. I hope to do more in the coming year. I have been looking into new template designs so Reflections of a Queen may have a new look in the new year. Maybe even before the new year. Yay!

I want to share some of my fiction and poetry with you so that may be coming in the new year. This blog has taken on a strong devotional focus. There is nothing wrong with that! However, that was never what I wanted it to be. Don’t worry. The devotions are here to stay. It’s obvious to me that writing these has been what God wanted me to do. He wanted me to encourage you all so I won’t get rid of them and stop writing them. I just want you to know that Reflections of a Queen may take on a more fiction minded focus. I am a fiction writer after all! (smile) Whatever God leads me to write about I will write about.

I also intend to focus on some tough subjects. They won’t necessarily be controversial, but I won’t beat around the bush with the truth. You know what I’m saying? It’s good to encourage people. But as believers we must also make sure that our brothers and sisters are not walking in darkness or bondage. Sometimes we need to hear correction. I don’t want to become one of those Christians that’s afraid to tell the truth and be real. That would mean that I fear the people more than I fear God and that is not right. Isaiah 51:7 says that we are not to fear the reproach of men, so I wont. I don’t want to tickle your ears while you’re walking down the wrong path. The Bible tells us in Hosea 4:6 that we are destroyed for lack of knowledge. I don’t want to be a contributor to anyone’s destruction. As God leads to me to share certain things with you I will.

I also intend to allow guest posts in the coming year. In this way you’ll be able to get stories and wisdom from others as well. This is still undecided. I may not do this at all. But it’s been something I’ve been debating. I don’t know if it will work out. I might do it for a month, or a year or not at all. I might like it. I might not. We’ll just have to wait and see. I may even have a special gift for you in the new year as well. So keep your eyes open for that. I think that you will like it and appreciate it.

So I want you to know that I have not forgotten or abandoned my faithful readers. I love you guys!

Life has thrown many things my way this past year that I could not have foreseen. It’s been hard. But I am expecting the new year to be the start of a new beginning. I’m looking forward to the many blessings God has in store for me. I know that it will be beautiful. So hang in there with me. Reflections of a Queen is about to become better than ever!

Lord bless you all!
