Essays on tending the flame of the spiritual life.
Nothing is more remarkable than an ordinary life, quietly transformed by prayer. This is the life that Deborah Smith Douglas chronicles -- and invites readers into -- in this lovely collection of essays and poems. Drawing from events as simple as breakfast with a five-year-old and waiting in line at the post office, Douglas shows how a loving relationship with God can be nurtured in small ways every day. "Without my ever really intending it," she writes, "my own life -- as a wife and mother, daughter and friend -- has taught me to see God hidden in the ordinary, to watch for God under the surface of things as a fisherman watches for fish." Woven into each of these pieces, along with reflections on the author's experiences, are suggestions for readers who want to watch for God in their own ordinary -- and unique -- lives. Book jacket.
Douglas is a spiritual director and retreat leader.
