This book was written for those who find themselves inadequate and alone to meet life’s challenges, with little or no support from family or friends; having only themselves to count on for financial support and without even a car to get to and from work; for those who are scared, depressed and lonely.
That is how the author found herself after her divorce. She began writing a journal of prose which enabled her to express her thoughts and activities, then making comments on the prose.
The journal became the source for this book. The trauma of all the above factors forced her to turn within, where much to her surprise, answers came! What she has learned is “All things (ALL situations, ALL events, ALL circumstances), work together for good, PERIOD!
HOWEVER, that phrase has a caveat:
It requires that we fully believe – more than that - KNOW that there is a power, greater than our finite selves, that is omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. The essence of that power is LOVE, that many of us call God.
That is what the author wants to share with her readers; That through life’s trials and personal tribulation, our successes, and failures, and by turning within for the answers, we become more and more aware that there is indeed a power greater than the finite, inadequate, ego-centered self we hold so dear. For the vast majority of us, this does not happen over-night, that we must be vigilant in watching our thoughts.
You will find throughout this anthology, that the author indeed has her ups and downs, successes and failures, but through her persistent belief in that higher power within us, she found the love she was looking for – both within and without.
