Book Review: Devotions from the Garden: Finding Peace and Rest in Your Busy Life, by Miriam Drennan

 Hello again, savvy savers! Today finds us with a new book review, and this time the book is Devotions from the Garden: Finding Peace and Rest in Your Busy Lifeby Miriam Drennan.

To begin, this book is simply lovely. Devotions from the Garden takes you to that place where senses are restored as dewdrops settle and butterflies gather to witness the miracles of God’s creation bloom and grow. These ninety devotions explore the parallels of life with the elements of the garden to help you see God, to sense His presence, to soothe your soul, and to rest in knowing He is with you throughout each day. Included are striking photographs with a fresh, contemporary design for timeless appeal.

Here is an example of the devotions:

There’s nothing on earth like the peace and loveliness of a beautiful garden.
It’s the place where Adam and Eve first fellowshipped with God,
and where you, too, can escape from this chaotic world
and enter into a place of serenity and peace.
Devotions from the Garden is not only a beautiful book in appearance, but the words tucked inside the pages encourage the heart and refresh the soul. You will find topics such as:
  • Perennials – God is at work even in seasons of your heart that seem dormant.
  • The Spark of Life – Let the unknown and the mysterious compel you to trust God that this is an opportunity – in His perfect time – for you to grow.
  • Herb Gardens- Whenever we offer what we have, no matter how small, we are giving for more that that concrete thing. We are giving a taste of God’s love, a gift more valuable than gold.
  • Thanks For The Harvest- Then, when your heart is so full it could burst,  your mind is happily resting in His precious Spirit, and your body is relaxed from his touch, only two words are worthy to break the silence: Thank You.
It is important to point out that each devotion is short and to the point, with explosively imaginative, calming words which all together evoke powerful symbolism and serenity, which will leave you thinking upon the Lord and His precious mercies for quite some time.  This is an inspirational devotion book that you don’t want to miss out on.
