Within the pages of Rae Neal’s new book, Midnight Melodies: From the Seas and Rivers of Life, ($14.99, paperback, 9781498416047; $7.99, e-book, 9781498416054) readers will discover a compilation of rich poems, which convey experiences from the author’s riveting past and present. It was revealed to Rae, during her childhood, the type of amazing divine calling that she would have as an adult. Through the grace of God, the author continues to fulfill her call in ministry as a foreign missionary, preacher and teacher of the Bible, and ordained pastor. These poems are a reflection of Rae’s amazing journey of life, yet they place emphasis on the beauty of everyday things.
“My book contains a collection of life expressions in poetical free-verse form; topics inspired by life's glorious colors and depths that are observed through our God-given experiences and observations,” states the author. “The word pictures of the poems highlight the many blessings, questions, surprises, and wonders of our existence, all of which can draw readers into a deeper, more intimate relationship with their Creator.”
With an educational background in ministerial studies pursuant to rhetoric and writing at Tulsa University, Rae Neal is known for her verbosity in preaching sermons and teaching Bible studies rather than writings. After years of living in other cultures, grappling with demanding missionary tasks, responding to the joys and disappointments of everyday life, Rae returned to Oklahoma. Without realizing it, she had been provided with a rich and varied background from which an in-depth perspective of life was fashioned. As a married woman and a pastor, her poetry is the result of nightly inspirations with a viewpoint developed by one who has traveled the journey.
