An Inside Look at Ordinary Blessings: Prayers, Poems, and Meditations for Everyday Life
Excerpt from the Introduction
“I started writing blessings, poems, and prayers for the ordinary stuff a few years ago and realized the more I wrote, the more I needed them. It feels good and holy to notice God’s attention to the regular, to consider God’s investment in the little moments that matter to my daily life, to bless the pretty decent things and call them good.
My prayer is that you will discover a few written words in here that help you access your emotions and faith in a new way.”
