Reflections of Me- Living Life Experiences is a collection of inspirational and spritual short stories and poems written in narrative poetry style. I am the narrator of these short stories and poems. Some of the short stories and poems you will find inside are Looking in the Mirror, Self Image, Blind Fate, "Isms" of the World, Friendships, Family Reunions, Testing the Trials of Life, My Way of Thinking, Communications, Beware of the Snares, Betrayal, Math Problems of Everyday Life, "As Is" and other life experiences, I am sure we all can relate to at some point and time in our past life experiences as we take a look in the mirror and reflect upon our past. If you are looking for someone who can change your life, take a good look in the mirror.
That faith is the strong throughline of the pieces collected here, expressed with both exultant pleasure (“Living the Christian Songs of Life” playfully builds a declaration of belief from song titles) and a sense of hard-won advice: “Call on Jesus so you don’t go wrong,” she writes in “Communications,” a poem that opens as a consideration of how humanity sends messages to each other but then twists to emphasize that greater concern.
Readers of faith looking for warm, inviting poems connected to everyday life (one entry cautions not to “get upset” when lost and confused in a crowded city) and an emphasis on abiding Christian convictions will find Wilburn’s light verse appealing and often touching. The meter and rhyme schemes tend toward the fluid, but this is conversational self-expression, best read out loud, capturing the spirit of what moves and concerns a pure heart.
Takeaway: Touching light verse contemplating a Christian woman’s faith, days, and self.
Great for fans of: Morgan Harper Nichols, Julie C. Gilbert’s Made to Praise.
