Cathy Messecar catches a stained glass view of every day life in Gods creations. Her insight is shown in short, two-page stories, which enlighten us to look at the world with awe and wonderment. I had planned to read this 127-page book in one evening yet the stories capture your heart, soul, and mind. They make you think using parts of your brain never tapped until now. You must take time to ponder about the cowboy in his stained glass pickup and his prayer for his daughter, or the grandpas worn and frayed work coat, or the trust of a four year old and her parents. Kathy Messecar ties these every day happenings, which most of us take for granted, with the passages of the Bible with such ease. Each story ends with a prayer to remind us He is our provider, our strength, and our creator. Thanks Cathy for writing a book that inspires us to be His in every way every day a blessing in His Name.
Ms Messecar's insights are awesome. That she sees the Lord's hand in our lives and takes the time to put her awareness into print for others is praise-worthy to the Lord. God has given her such bounty, and she uses it to His credit! Praise God! Lois V. Chapman, Councilor-at-Large, The Poetry Society of Texas. Brownwood, TX
The cover photo with a small traditional church and an old pickup truck resting in a harvested grain field drew me in.These short devotionals are full of wise observations and advice.Its hard to pick a favorite; one is Making Room for Essentials which reminded me of how unimportant my trinkets and all my earthly treasures are. When a daughter admired a Prussian princess figurine of her moms, and said she would love to have the figurine one day, the author wisely said She hasnt traveled in a while. Take her now.I highly treasure my copy of this book.
Don't let the small size of this amazing book mislead you. It might be small in package, put it packs a big punch of faith.Messecar is able to take the smallest of moments of everyday life and see the big picture, find glimpses of God. And she shares her hope and faith with readers in great little short devotions you can read in less than five minutes each.For busy moms like me, it's the perfect daily devotional.Trish Berg, Author and Speaker
In the easy comfortable style reminiscent of a ride through the country in a pickup truck, Cathy Messecar shares stories of inspiration and messages of God's care and love for us. It is a beautiful gift book for any occasion.
