Where Are The Stones That Tripped Me? A Personal Journey

RRP $56.99

In "Where Are the Stones that Tripped Me?" you are invited to take a walk with the author as she reflects on her own journey in life. In this simple, honest reflection of her very ordinary, yet deeply spiritual life the author combines poetry and prose to reflect on the sufferings of Christ and how we can relate His path to the roads we all travel; journeys that are wondrous, yet difficult; rewarding, yet painful; sad, yet joyous. As you read the author's feelings on her own personal life experiences and that of others you will be drawn into contemplation of your own life experiences that you will discover may be very different, but surprisingly similar; unique, yet the same. You will be invited to consider how and why life has led you down the road you are on, learning from and letting go of the past and looking forward to a future free of worry with complete trust in God, who lovingly takes the good and the bad experiences of our lives to ultimately orchestrate His will. For all of us, some paths in life are very smooth; others more difficult littered with stones that trip us and cause us to fall. But if we can remain focused on where we are going, allowing Christ to guide us moving forward, to help us up when we trip and fall, it's amazing what we will see when we look back on our journey....Where are the stones that tripped us?
