But he had no real conception as to Whom he was addressing himself. The sweet old story, the grand story of the selfless Christ, had been told him in a sort of vague and inconsequent manner, but he had not understood it a bit. One of his petitions to Heaven, invented by Gerty, ran thus: "Dear Jesus, bless father, bless mother, make me a good boy, and save my soul for Heaven, amen!" But he had no sort of idea what his "soul" was, or why it should be so carefully "saved for Heaven." What was the good of his soul? And what was Heaven? Often he thought he would ask Rattling Jack, but he hesitated to do so lest that venerable cynic should empty vials of wrath on his defenceless head for being in such a state of ignorance. And so the days went on, and he was fast becoming used to the companionship of the boy-scavengers on the beech and the conversation of Rattling Jack when a sudden and glorious break occurred in the clouds of his dull sky. Major Desmond came down from London unexpectedly to see his father and mother, and to ask that he might be allowed to go to Scotland and stay a whole month with Miss Leslie at a beautiful place she had taken there for the summer on the fairy shores of Loch Katrine.

Praise for Bestselling Contemporary Western Romances by Carolyn Brown:
Jan Spence created this short Christmas Eve children's program for her small, rural church. It includes five brief scenes built around a suggested order of worship. Clergy can easily write a meditation to complete the service.
Jodi Madsen agrees to go to the Calgary Stampede with her Canadian friend Becky to take a break from the tension at her advertising job in Seattle-not to meet a cowboy, as Becky had teased. But when two huge Percherons start backing up on either side of her in the heavy horse barn, Jodi is happy to have handsome cowboy Sam McKenzie slap them back into their stalls. Then Jodi and Becky find themselves invited to the heavy horse ball. They accept as a lark, but while dancing with Sam, Jodi is surprised to find this is not how she expected to feel about a cowboy. She prefers professional men in suits who live in the same city as she does, but this Canadian cowboy might make her change her mind about that when he shows up a few weeks later in Seattle in a way she never could have imagined.
