It was put on my heart to read the books of Isiah and Jeremiah in the Bible during the pandemic and shutdown periods we all suffered during the past two years. I learned how many times through the ages and generations over the past 3000 years people have gone through times and troubles such as these. Pondering what God was telling me through his words at night time, these poetic words would come to me.
Mary Leigh studied playing the piano, thinking of teaching this in public schools. She played for all three of her high school choirs, graduating with scholarships to college. While in high school, she joined the Youth Group where she met her husband and she took a job as a typist for a large corporation. Four years later, her husband was transferred to Wash., D.C. where her life changed again. His love of racing led to publishing a 20-page weekly newspaper that covered every division of racing in 5 different states. Mary typed all results, articles, and stories on a digital typesetter, designed advertisements, and photo captions, and got the layout sheets ready for the printer. Then she served on a Christian Elementary School board for 17 years where one of her children and 5 grandchildren attended.
Mary felt the Lord working through His word and has written 2 novels showing God’s way of working out difficulties and this new book of poems hoping it will help others with any difficulties and problems that they too may face.
