about

Inspired Christian poetry by the bestselling author of 'It's Alright Now - God is in Charge'.

"I love these poems. They so clearly come from the overflow of an honest heart that has walked with Jesus for many years – through both pain and joy. And this has led to a deep insight into the mind of God – his thoughts, his ways, his love – enabling Patsy to put into vivid words things that many of us would struggle to express. Patsy has a great gift, and it is a gift she shares with us in this book. I hope that you will read these poems, reflect on them, learn from them, and allow your soul to be moved."

Rev. James Packman
Rector, St Albans Church, Frant

"Poems always reflect the heart of a person. Patsy’s poems reveal a deep spirituality and a love and expression of the heart of God. They reflect her closeness to God and carry a sense of emotion and deep feelings. I was especially moved by the poem ‘God’s Persecuted Ones’ in which Patsy shows how God feels about His people who are persecuted around the world.
I am very pleased to endorse this book of poetry.  I believe that as you read and reflect on these poems, they will touch your emotions and draw you to the heart of God."

"In our culture today very few people go to church. The best efforts of the best churches to encourage people to come to church do yield some results but what we need is material that will appeal to the general public which is truthful, human and real. Patsy’s poetry provides this. We all share  the human condition; to express this in words which most of us cannot put our finger on, and which inevitably touch upon our relationship with God, is a great pleasure. This quality is also a clear feature of Patsy’s previous work, ‘It’s Alright now – God is in Charge’."

"In this collection of poems, Patsy expresses her deep faith in the power of God to bless and transform. Life’s experience has shown her that Jesus performs his miracle of turning water into wine again and again in our lives, when we are open to his presence. The beauty of the forest, the song of the thrush, a starry ceiling above, sun’s rays lighting up the rocks below, the sigh of the wind, or the fragrance of herbs and flowers in the scented air, each remind us of God’s love for us and his creation. There are times in life when we feel frail and weak, and troubles seem to overwhelm… Patsy expresses, with beauty and sensitivity, her belief that by breathing in God’s love displayed around us, we are refilled, and renewed by his grace and strength. Somehow, in that act of openness to God’s love, Jesus takes our sadness, our pain, our heartaches and transforms them into ‘Joyous Wine’!"

"In Patsy’s previous book ‘It’s Alright Now – God is in Charge’ we read about her early life and the amazing way God looked after her family. Now, here we discover her gift of writing poetry, a gift given to her later in life. The poems cover a wide range of subjects; some read at a pace that leaves one breathless, and yet often laughing as the words dance before our eyes. Joy is expressed, along with deep sadness. We read of God’s love and pain for Jerusalem; the inner conversations about how to help a beggar on the street; and then we find ourselves sharing in a time of deep personal sadness as Patsy shares with us her grief over the loss of her beloved husband, Hugh. Many of the poems become a mirror into which we find ourselves drawn; faced with our own inner struggles and pain, but also reminded of times of joy and thankfulness. Patsy doesn’t dwell on the sentimental; this book will delight and challenge, whilst at the same time bringing us face to face with ourselves and the God whose love never fails."
