THE VALLEY OF FLOWERS 
by JACK DEY

Out of your heart, the tears I keep and when I am no longer, your knowledge is complete.

*~*~*~*

A distant rumble echoed up and down the steep green valley walls; then a gentle breeze rippled across the valley floor stirring a patchwork of yellow, pink and blue, making the colourful tall stems of happy flowers seem to giggle softly and sway gently in the giddying silence. Patches of blue sky peered around the tall cliffs, partially obscured by lazy clouds hanging deftly and close to the rocky peaks. A monolithic giant, draped in the royal green velvet of deep rainforest, towered high above the trail and stood guard over the entrance to the enchanting scene, making sure only the invited found the secret, narrow breach. Something was beckoning, tugging at her heart strings and drawing her onto the path, urging her to keep walking. Step by step the trail led her deeper into the valley, tantalising her senses with each guarded step and piquing her curiosity.

Where was she?

Suddenly, the valley erupted into whispered laughter, adorable impish laughter echoing across the valley floor and entangled among the swaying flowers. She searched around trying to identify the voices, but they remained shy and hidden from her view. Then the sky opened and a warm, gentle shower drizzled over her, flooding her mind with childish delight as she tasted drops of water sweeter than honey. The rain began to teem down on her and as it did, the impish laughter increased; she heard a giggle trickle over her tonsils and then an echoing laugh bubbled up from deep inside her and spilled out into the rain. In a moment of ecstasy, she peered up at the sky and the mountains surrounding her and twirled on the spot, pirouetting like a ballet dancer, lost in excited elation and sending her long gown whirling around her.

As suddenly as it came, the rain stopped and a gentle breeze caressed her face, dancing with her, calling to her in a loving whisper, “Elly… Elly… come to me, pretty lady,” enticing her down into the valley while its call halted her ecstatic dance. The voice made her heart burn within her and she searched among the flowers until she saw a beautiful young man standing on the path, beckoning to her with an outstretched arm. She gazed at the gesture for a moment, hesitating and a little confused, but then his haunting green eyes peered into the depths of her heart and overpowered her emotions, gently pulling her towards him…

A gentle, easy read that will captivate your heart and hold it prisoner as it pleads with every word to take you deeper into an enchanted world of mystery, valour, romance and redemption.

“So did you ever work out Dramble’s riddle?”
Elly shook her head. “No, even to this day it puzzles me!”
“How does it go again?”
Out of your heart, the tears I keep and when I am no longer, your knowledge is complete,” Elly recited verbatim.
“I think I just solved it.”
Where?!

NOTE FROM THE EDITOR:  When I finished reading The Valley of Flowers for the very first time, the only words I could find to describe this book was, “Wow, oh wow oh wow!” Papa God has given Jack a masterpiece with this one and shared His heart and His love with us. It was so breathtakingly beautiful at one point – stunning, actually – that I had to close my eyes to savour the moment, with my mouth opening in a silent, ecstatic, “ohhhh…” and then ended up rushing to find a tissue box before I could continue. This whole journey is to be savoured, but at the same time, I was not wanting to put it down. Whatever you do, do NOT peek ahead or it will spoil the ride for you. Just keep reading and roll with the punches. It started off gently enough, but was like climbing the mountains of Switzerland (emotionally – the setting is NOTHING like Switzerland) with the undulating peaks getting higher and higher. Actually, it was more like a rollercoaster ride of twists and turns and highs and dips! But each one getting bigger than the one before. Until that final, breathtaking (but subtle) moment of ecstasy, leaving you sobbing at Papa God’s feet. And then a gentle glide down to the finish, like the rollercoaster slowing down after a breathtakingly beautiful ride so everyone can get off… stumble off…! I went to bed lost in love and dreaming of Papa God that night. And the next day I was wrecked! I give you fair warning.  :)
