Filled, Lit & Ready

Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps alight. 
~Luke 12:35

Hey everyone!!
It should come as no surprise that I am writing my first novel, a fantasy set in 15th century England. Though I admit, I'm not very good at focusing only on my book, that was originally the primary reason I created this blog. XD
Something that might strike you as a surprise though is that my dad had been working on a book as well.
Go back a few years, my dad seemed like the last person who wanted to read a book (with the exception of the Bible), let alone write one...and now he has done just that!!

My dad read a book about the Jewish Feasts and the significant meaning behind each one. I suppose that was the foundation for the book he would eventually write. He'd spent several months writing a book that focuses on being ready for Christ's return. 

Chapter 25 of the Book of Matthew, from the New Testament, tells the parable of the 10 virgins. The parable talks about the 10 virgins, or bridesmaids, awaiting the bridegroom. 5 of the virgins were out of lamp oil before the bridegroom arrived. Once they had set out to buy more oil, the bridegroom came. The 5 virgins returned, but it was too late.

I've read Dad's book quite a few times. I believe it's very informative and motivating. It's about understanding that Christ WILL return one day. It's about ALWAYS being ready for His return. It's about being filled, lit and ready, like the other 5 virgins.

Inspired with the idea, my dad felt that God put it on his heart to write it down for other people, believing it was not just for himself.

The book is titled Filled, Lit & Ready by my dad, George Yorba. It was published just last week. Please check it out, and thank you so much for reading. Would love to hear from you in the comments below. ;)

Yours truly,
