This is a beautifully written book that tells of the author's personal experience with God. His God is an intimate, loving God, not the God of punishment or judgment. The book is filled with lovely, personal anecdotes written with heart, many of them quite poignant. It's thoughtful, well-written and digestible. While you can read all the way through, it's also a book you can pick up and turn to a random page for inspiration and food for thought.
Here's an email I received that I think many of us can relate to:
I truly love life and am so grateful for where I am today and at the same time I feel like I am constantly treading water. After all the positive changes I've contributed to my life I still feel like life is so hard and I can't catch a break and all I do is work and I am so physically tired cannot afford health care and make to much too qualify for assistance, I am mentally and emotionally drained and tired all the time yet continue to think positive and always smile ~~ what to do... Carol, Austin, Tx.
Boy, do I ever know what it feels like to tread water. It sucks, big time.
Carol, I am going to give you some extremely radical advice - stop smiling all the time! Go hit a pillow and cry for a bit.
Don't get me wrong, positive thinking can be very powerful, and we are often in a much more empowered space when we utilize positive thinking, but it's not the be all and end all.
