Excerpt from the book:
The King whispered so sweetly in her ear, “Windy, will you dance with me?”
She grasped his hand and stood. They began dancing slowly in loops through the drooping tree’s waterfall of leaves. The King of Love looked at her with fatherly love in his eyes.
“Windy, my adventurer, I love you,” he said in his caring tone. “And you are so unique. So your love will be the same: unique.”
He said those last words so sincerely. She understood. There wasn’t a formula for love. She couldn’t mimic Rocky and Mendy or even the King’s love. Hers would be unique. That was what he needed her to know. That was why she couldn’t pound on doors to convince someone they were loved. It would take intentional acts of kindness over time… Love that only Windy could give. They bowed to each other as if the dance was over. Windy blinked and realized she was sitting right where she was before and didn’t know if it was her imagination or if the King had really been there. But she felt his love in her heart and knew the dance had been real.
“Tales of the Loved has truly given me an inside look of Jesus’s heart for His children and the entire world and how it’s all interconnected. How His great love for us is the same He feels for every person and His desire to bring them all into His kingdom. How His ministry of love isn’t one way, but He uses each one of us uniquely, individually, yet all together to accomplish this. My favorite parts are The King of Love’s interactions with the main three characters individually.”
