Poems of Faith for Daily Living

Couverture
Xulon Press, 2007 - 256 pages
The poems found between the covers of this book, furnish insight into the way God's Spirit permeates every facet of life. Too often we humans take things for granted, seeing only the worldly view and depending too much on our own wisdom. Personal wisdom is of great importance, but an attitude of complete self dependency robs us of the real riches attainable through the insight of faith. As you ponder the truths expressed here, you will begin to see, more than ever before, how very involved God is in every aspect of your life and you will feel a closeness to his spirit that has eluded you in the past. He cares about you personally, and has planned the universe to fulfill your every need. Let these poems open your mind to new and real possibilities. Your life will be stimulated and enriched as a result. * * * * * * * * * * AUTHOR BIO Veda Tohline has found writing poetry an excellent way of putting her faith into words and sharing it with others. She feels it is a spiritual gift which has helped her examine her own understanding of and relationship to God. This method of putting her convictions into word form began when, as a beginning school teacher, she was isolated from family and long-time friends and living in a small town one hundred miles from home and familiar surroundings. Gradually her gift evolved and became a method of communicating regularly with friends across the country. As her gift has become known, she has been asked to write celebrations of engagements, weddings, births, and even encouragement to share with incarcerated lawbreakers. Often she has no idea how to proceed, but once she applies her thoughts and asks God's guidance, even she is surprised by the outcome.
