One of my favorite book series I've read since I was thirteen are the Millie Keith series by Martha Finely (the author of the Elsie Dinsmore books, which I love as well).
Millie's character reminds me of well, me. She's one for adventure, as
me, and she seeks the Lord with all her heart -- what I am trying to do.
Her character was like a "role-model" to me in my early teen years.
And, as I got older, her love-situation sparked more interest to me.
See, there is this young man she unwillingly falls in love with - even
though he's not a Christian. When I reread her story a few weeks ago, it
made me think, what would I do if I was in her situation? Would I keep to my faith and not marry a man who isn't a true believer, even if I loved him?
I wish to have a steadfast love
as this book is titled
a steadfast love for Jesus Christ
and a faithful heart
a heart that remains ever-so faithful to my King Jesus.
