Welcome Nonnie Jules with her book OPEN, SHUT… A Short Story

A snippet

Here’s a snippet of the CONCLUSION at the end of OPEN, SHUT…

Sometimes it really is hard to believe in things that we can’t see, hear, or touch.  But, let me ask you … when you have nothing else to hold onto, what else is there to sustain you?  The Bible says that if you have Faith the size of a mustard seed, you could tell a mountain to move from here to there, and it would move.  Nothing would be impossible for you.

I encourage you today to have just a little Faith, because when you least expect it, you just might need to believe in something that will carry you through whatever difficult situation you might find yourself in.  Unfortunately, for those who fight the hardest against believing, that something just might not be something that you can see.

~Author, Nonnie Jules

Blurb

Darcy Lynn has a few problems: her sister, Lola, killed by a drunk driver, leaves her with an eerie message right before her death; her parents are atheists; her father drinks a little too much, and her brother, Bud, is just annoying. But, her most pressing issue is that things are mysteriously opening and closing around her and she hasn’t a clue as to why … or how.

In this short “sad but uplifting story with a wonderful message,” as one reader tags it, Author, Nonnie Jules flexes her writing chops once again, by introducing her readers to a normal, everyday family, whose lives are altered, not once, but twice by unexpected and unusual circumstances.

If you came into this story only believing in things seen with your own two eyes, and things heard with your own two ears, you walk away with a new and refreshing added sense … the ability and the courage to change, based on where your heart leads you.

    1. Hi, Annette. I have had a mustard seed necklace for more years than I can remember, Although I don’t wear it, every once in a while, I pick it up and marvel at the size of the seed and the sentiment behind it.

  1. Thank you, Robbie, for graciously hosting Nonnie Jules and her story, “Open and Shut.” It’s so fun to see how you decorated the cake in tribute to Nonnie. The snippet by Nonnie was quite moving and resonated with me: “…you just might need to believe in something that will carry you through whatever difficult situation you might find yourself in. Unfortunately, for those who fight the hardest against believing, that something just might not be something that you can see.” After the near-death of my husband at a young age, we both experienced some profound things that we cannot explain but have kept us together for over 50 years.

    1. HI Linnea, thank you for visiting and I’m glad you like the cake. This book is a very good one and Nonnie always makes insightful comments in her books. I have recently read her poetry book which was also excellent. Thank you for sharing this information about your husband, I am very happy for you.

  2. I really like this line out of the snippet, “Sometimes it really is hard to believe in things that we can’t see, hear, or touch”. This story will have some of the deeper meanings in life we all need to focus on more often.

  6. Hi Nonnie. Your post certainly struck home as far as having a little faith is concerned. If there ever was a time for me to have faith, it is now as I have a challenge to overcome. Thank you for a timely message. Congratulations “Open and Shut!”

  7. Nonnie, somehow I missed this first time around, and I would never ignore you, so glad to find it now! Your story sounds intriguing and I will add it to my kindle tbr! Love the touch of mystery and the supernatural, those always add to my enjoyment of a story.
