MEADVILLE, Pa. (PRWEB) October 10, 2018
“A Trail of Roses: The Confession of a Pastor”: a poignant story of two loves and a life-changing loss. “A Trail of Roses: The Confession of a Pastor” is the creation of published author Dr. D. Wes Smith, a Southern Baptist pastor from Mississippi who grew up on a small farm before going on to earn a PhD in theology.
Dr. Smith shares the defining moment he starts the trail of roses: “‘This is Dewey, Diane,’ I said, ‘I’m standing at the door of the home you lived in when we were dating and loved each other very much. I know you are in heaven singing in the Lord’s choir. I have a beautiful red rose in my hand. I’m leaving this rose as a momentum of memories of the love we once shared and the memories of what you meant to me. From out of my heart to your heart, I leave this rose. Thanks for the memories. I love you still and always will. Goodbye, Diane, goodbye.’
I left the rose. A mile or two down the road was a place we often parked and planned our future, and, of course, a kiss or two. I left a rose. A little way down the road, there was another place where we would sometimes, on moonlit nights, stop to watch the cattle grazing in the field. Maybe another kiss and more plans for our future together. I left a rose.”
Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Dr. D. Wes Smith’s new book is a powerfully moving memoir that is as striking in the depth of its emotion as it is in the simplicity of its prose.
Unexpected, shattering, and guaranteed to bring tears to eyes, Dr. Dewey Smith’s story leaves readers facing the immensity of love, loss, and the inevitability of both.
