Analogy to dust bowl description in Grapes of Wrath

With The wind comes stinging reminders of how different your life is from everyone else's.... To escape these stinging realities you huddle yourself in your house...

This is one of my favorite spiritual books. Ken Gire honestly tackles the pain in life that everyone experiences. He doesn't give "cheer you up, things are going to get better" answers. He's honest, sometimes painfully so. I found myself in this book. Finally, someone who doesn't mince words or offer pat answers on the difficulties we face living in our bodies on this very human planet.

Ken Gire is one of my favorite authors...such beautiful writing. Often such insightful and deep writing. This book was no exception, although I did feel a bit like there was more depth to be explored. It lends biblical and experiential perspective to the question of why bad things happen.

Loved some of the analogies. Solid look at the spiritual part of pain and heartbreak. Otherwise fairly standard fare.

This had a few good quotes on living a life of faith, but overall it was dry.
