Product Description

In the wilderness of pain, loss, or illness, it is easy to get lost. Despair descends like darkness when the safe tableland of our past disappears into the jagged, unpredictable vertigo of sheer tragedy. And, hemmed in on every side, we lose the perspective of a larger horizon.

But in the same way that the passage of time tames mountains and smoothes the edges of serrated peaks, God molds our upheavals into equally awe-inspiring scenery---far grander than the predictable plains we once walked. The white caps of our hurts, thrust heavenward by violence and earthquake, become now the beauty, mystery, and peace for others who are drawn to the high places.

In Life as We Would Want It...Life as We Are Given It, learn to let God bring beauty out of life's troubles and give you eyes to see that what once seemed to be destruction turns out to be creation. Previously published as The Weathering Grace of God.

Publisher's Description

The terrain of Colorado forms a metaphor for life as acclaimed writer Ken Gire reflects upon the smooth, even terrain of eastern Colorado in contrast to the wild, uncertain, jagged terrain of western Colorado. The majestic, awe-inspiring mountains of western Colorado were born out of the most terrifying eruptions. And that is the unrelenting work of heaven, to make everything beautiful in its time. All of us would like life to be smooth with no upheavals. But the fact is that our lives are anything but. Our lives are full of upheaval, for that is life as we are given it. Gire looks at the beauty that is the result of these upheavals.
