Mineque shares, “Disguised Blessings is a book of poetry. This is a compilation of poems that I wrote for about a year when the COVID-9 pandemic started in 2020.
“The poems will take your imagination to stories of my personal life, friends, and families. They were the people who inspired me and played vital roles in my life. It will also take you back to my youth and the island I grew up in. In my poems I also shared stories of how wonderful it is to love, be loved, and the hurtful experience of being rejected.
“A lot of the poetry I wrote were inspired by nature and its beauty that surrounds me. I saw God’s glory through His creation and heard His voice and felt His presence.
“Disguised Blessings are my unexpected gifts that I personally received amid the pandemic. Being a registered nurse working in the frontline is unnerving. God had protected and shielded me from COVID-19 so I could continue serving in His ministry of healing.
“God had blessed me with talents that I was able to use when I most needed them to keep myself above all chaos from the pandemic. I was able to do many projects to maintain a healthy mind and spirit. Best of all, He endowed me with special and beautiful thoughts that flowed into rhythmic words of poetry.
“I’m inviting you to emerge into the pages of this book and be inspired!”
