I Asked My Father: Expressions of Love by Dorothy E. Rice R.N.

We hope you’ll find these books remarkable and inspiring that you’d add to your to-read list!

I Asked My Father: Expressions of Love is a poetic journey through the depths of suffering, penned by an author intimately acquainted with the clutches of Lupus. In this slender volume, the reader is ushered into the recesses of a soul teetering on the edge of mortality, where pain and inspiration entwine in an intricate dance.

The verses, born from the crucible of affliction, offer solace to those grappling with their own tribulations. In their contemplative moments, the author poses profound questions about the nature of suffering and the inexplicable connection between pain and the inspiration that blooms from it. The poems become a salve, soothing wounds with an understanding that only emerges through the crucible of experience.

As the author delves into the paradoxical nature of life, readers are invited to ponder why good people bear the weight of adversity. The poignant words echo the sentiment that the true inquiry lies not in the suffering of the virtuous but in the grace bestowed upon those who may not deserve it—an exploration encapsulated in the author’s reflection on why Jesus came for them.

I Asked My Father: Expressions of Love is more than a collection of poems; it is an offering of empathy, a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a source of contemplation for those navigating the labyrinth of life’s uncertainties. Each verse is a drop of wisdom distilled from the crucible of suffering, a whispered reassurance that, even in the darkest corners, a flicker of light is waiting to be embraced.
