The Twelve Days of Giveaways - Day Seven: Brenda Anderson





For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6


I love Christmas season. Even with the tumult going on around the world, hope cannot be taken from us. By celebrating Jesus' birth, we're reminded that we do have a Savior. In our broken world, our messy lives, our tragedies and tears, we always have hope.


In my novel, CHAIN OF MERCY, that's a lesson both the hero and heroine need to learn. Both are broken, both have made terrible choices, and both struggle to find hope with the mess they've made of their lives. Through Christ, they eventually find that hope.

My prayer this Christmas is that, no matter what's going on in your life, you'll look to the One who was born for you. Who loved you so much, He died for you! And then He arose, leaving your sins behind, washing you white as first-fallen snow!

Have a joyous Christmas! 



About Chain of Mercy ~                     



A devastating argument

One reckless decision

An unforgivable sin

Manhattan businessman Richard Brooks was at the top of the world, drunk with success, wealth, and women until one disastrous evening, when his world came crashing down.

Richard flees to Minneapolis where he repairs ancient boilers instead of solving corporate problems, and he’s determined to live the solitary life he now deserves …

Chained to his guilt. Blending in with the gray. No luxuries in sight.

But Executive Sheila Peterson has other plans for the handsome custodian. Richard appears to be the perfect match for the no-strings-attached romance she’s after, but she soon discovers that he’s hiding more than the designer suits in his closet.

I plan to have a quiet day at home with a visit in the afternoon from my boys. A few gifts, snacks, and some quality family time.

We'll be going to Holy Mass then coming home to have a small meal with close loved ones... while missing others who won't be there. Thanks and God bless! ILuvTheEucharist @ aol.com
