This book was not as "grabbing" as "Seasons of Your Heart." because it was written on a more intellectual basis.It didn't flow as nicely. However, I still gave it four stars. In my opinion, if you read this book before "Seasons of Your Heart," I would have to give ten stars to "Seasons...."so I would start with this one if you never read Macrina Wiederkehr before. She is definetly worth it! I'm going to read it again. It's been ten years ago that I read it. Sometimes in your life it all depends where you are at spiritually. After I read it again, I will submit another review. I might not be doing her justice. The content might relate better when you don't have distractions.
This book touched me at a very deep level. It helps me to combat my moments of pessimism in a world where the 'holy' is seldom seen. Her perspective on the smaller things in life, including the way we see ourselves sometimes, is encouraging and uplifting. Something to be pondered and read more than once!
