A Collection of Silver Threads

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, Jun 7, 2004 - Religion - 376 pages

This book consists of a collection of devotions, poems, and true life experiences that I have taken from my private prayer journal. Some of these experiences were joyful and others were very painful. I stand in awe that God took time to speak to me personally in what were seemingly the most ordinary circumstances of my life. Although I am a work in progress, I feel his love and acceptance in spite of my weaknesses and shortcomings. This book is not meant to be a typical daily devotional book. It was written with the prayer that each of the writings in this collection would speak to you, the reader, in a very personal and timely manner, from my heart to yours.
