A Word from Lori...
Often I write a book around a title of a favorite song. I love almost all Christmas melodies, but "Beautiful Star of Bethlehem" by the Judd’s rates at the top of my seasonal favorites, so I put pen to paper, listened to the song many, many times again, and started writing.
Some will find Beautiful Star of Bethlehem sad. Others will have a laugh—not at the person, but because we know the feeling. Most, I will venture to say, will strongly identify with Arlene Santana and her often laughable but tragic struggles.
This vibrant, first-time grandmother’s life changed in a matter of minutes. Arlene had what most consider “everything”: a goood marriage, money, children, and a new grandchild, Ella Parker. Arlene was at the top of her game.
I have spent many hours in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities and much of what I’ve written about I’ve witnessed. Growing old is not for sissies, or does it mean hope is gone. Tragedies often turn into blessings. Loved ones try but often fail to supply what Arlene needs most: clarity, a sense of purpose, and her husband Jack.
Adversity almost always leads to the knowledge that God will never take you where He won’t sustain you. I hope when you finish reading Beautiful Star of Bethlehem your heart will agree.
