It was the lovely cover of this book that caught my eye while browsing at the bookstore. But since my bookshelf space is limited I replaced it on the shelf and moved on. Then a quiet inner voice whispered, There are valuable lessons for you in that book. I try to listen to these kinds of inner directives so I retraced my steps and picked the book up once more, quickly flipping through it again.

I followed that gentle prompting and purchased the book, and over the next four months I read small po

Sorry....not a fan of the title and didn't get much out of the book. I respect the author, however, her writing doesn't resonate with me. I have too much ADHD in me, to stick with it. I gave the book to someone who will appreciate it much more than I.

As I read this, I thought it would be a four star book. However, when I got near the end I found two meditations that lifted it over the top.

“Someone once said that the challenge of living is to develop a long obedience in the same direction. When it's demanded, we can rise on occasion and be patient . . . as long as there are limits. But we balk when patience is required over a long haul. We don't much like endurance. It's painful to persevere through a marriage that's forever struggling. A church that never crest 100 members. Housekeeping routines that never vary from week-to-week. Even caring for an elderly parent or a handicapped child can feel like a long obedience in the same direction.

If only we could open our spiritual eyes to see the fields of grain we're planting, growing, and reaping along the way. That's what happens when we endure...

Right now you may be in the middle of a long stretch of the same old routine.... You don't hear any cheers or applause. The days run together―and so do the weeks. Your commitment to keep putting one foot in front of the other is starting to falter.

Take a moment and look at the fruit. Perseverance. Determination. Fortitude. Patience.

Your life is not a boring stretch of highway. It's a straight line to heaven. And just look at the fields ripening along the way. Look at the tenacity and endurance. Look at the grains of righteousness. You'll have quite a crop at harvest . . . so don't give up!”
