This created story unfolds in the form of a diary. One mid-day afternoon during a heavy rainfall, Ausha, deciding to take a nap unexpectedly has her dream interrupted by a beautiful young maiden named “Hagar” who comes and sits down beside her. Smiling at her, this maiden who appears to be about her age, smiles back, then hands her an old rickety worn book.
With a look of puzzlement on her face, Ausha accepts it. Smiling and nodding her head, the wide-eyed maiden encourages her to open it. Ausha’s thought; “Why is this maiden smiling?” Based upon what she had learned about Hagar in biblical history, she had nothing to smile about. As Ausha cracks open the ancient book, light, sound and dust erupts from it. Brushing off the first page Ausha gasp as she sees this caption, “My Diary”. Quickly thumbing through the pages, she notices they are blank. When she looks up to question the maiden, Hagar is no longer there. Suddenly there is a loud thunderous sound and Ausha wakes up from her nap. Excited and now in pursuit of her own journal’s journey, she sets out to dig through the ancient scriptures of the bible for answers. Fused with a charge and her God given imagination, Ausha goes in search of the reason for Hagar’s smile. It is her hope to aid this young maiden by filling in a unique perspective of content to the pages of her (Hagar’s) old historical diary.
Also shared in this amazing book are six modern day created stories, pulled from the diaries of different women and one man. I pray your heart is enlightened and your imagination engaged, as we once again discover the faithfulness of El Roi, “The God Who Sees”.
