"Searching for Spring"

"Searching for Spring: how God makes all things beautiful in time" is really a beautiful, eye-opening book to read and become lost in.  Christine does an incredible job with really capturing the beauty in the world, all around us, in the unexpected areas and the expected ones both.  There is a season for everything and as the seasons change, our eyes are open to the beauty in our physical environments.  However, it can be difficult to see the beauty in the midst of hard times and times that we feel beaten and defeated and overwhelmed by daily life.  This book is a nice mixture of personal stories, scripture and imagery to portray these thoughts and really help awaken a person to seeing the beauty and remembering that God has a plan and purpose in His time.  My absolute favorite chapter is the one titled God is a joy whisperer.  This really resonated with me because it is so easy to go through each day completing the daily tasks, going through life just living and not enjoying life, not seeking and finding joy. 
I think that this is a book that anyone, no matter where they are on their walk with Jesus, a new believer, one struggling to place faith and trust in God, or one whom has been a part of God's family for years, would appreciate this and find some peace and beauty within the pages.
