I enjoyed the story she shared about Summer. They were all excited about attending Bible College and needed to sell their house. After several attempts, the plans started to fall through. It is easy to get discouraged when things seem to not go the way we hoped for. They were excited when finally they had a buyer. On the day they were to leave and turn the keys over , the buyer was late. I loved how the husband got on his knees and prayed. As he finished, the buyer drove up. We sometimes forget that God has a plan for us. We need to be patient and wait on Him.
One of the devotions that really grabbed my attention was about a woman named Amanda. She volunteered to help with a play and soon found herself in charge of all the costumes. It was an overwhelming task and the director yelled at her because everything was not ready. After the play was done, the director handed out flowers to the cast and thanked people who had helped with the play. Just one person was left out of being thanked that day. Amanda , after all her hard work had not gotten a thank you. What I loved about the story was how the author pointed out that we sometimes forget to thank God for the many things He has done for us.
Thank you for writing a devotion that open my eyes to things I should be thankful for and to help me focus on Him more. The devotion is a beautiful tool to use everyday to remind us of the blessings we have and to be loving to each other.
I received a copy of this book from the author and Bookfun.org. The review is my own opinion.
Book is broken up into the seasons of the year. What I especially liked was the other special days/holidays that the author concentrates on and the true life experiences-some very much like our own, that came through and how they got through the turmoil.
Love holidays and hearing how different situations worked and how to find the true meaning of the holiday.
God is there for good times along with bad times.
