One night, there was a light rain. I was going to skip watering the flowers, but I looked at the ground and decided I didn't want to chance it. It would have been okay, but I wanted the flowers to stay looking really good. How like us at times! We go to church on Sunday or listen to a good TV sermon, and we get a little bit of rain. We get just enough of God to think we really got something. It makes us feel good. All we really did was get enough to get our skin wet, not enough to soak through to our souls. In Silver Linings, Ruth Teal takes experiences from her life and connects them to a biblical concept. Ruth covers a range in topics-from dealing with loss to recognizing false prophets to dealing with potty training grandchildren; Ruth is able to find God's presence in everything. Each section is its own short story, so grab it on the go for something to read at the doctor's office. Whether you're cozying up on the couch with a cup of tea or reading on the run, Silver Linings will lighten your spirit and inspire your day.
