Windows of the Soul
~ Hearing God in the Everyday Moments of Your Life
by, Ken Gire
This is a beautiful book, written to remind us that "our search for God and his search for us meet at the windows of our everyday experiences." As we read, our eyes are opened to "a fresh way of seeing, hearing, and enjoying the presence of God in our lives."
Through a series of personal experiences and encounters, the author takes us on a wonderful journey of discovery. He takes us to museums, to the movies and on business trips ~ and lets us peer through the windows that God opens for him along the way. His stories are poignant....but, as he points out...they are his stories and not ours. And his encouragement to us is to learn to hear God in OUR lives...to grow in our awareness of the many ways God reveals himself to us. We've got to quiet down, tune in, ask good questions and we'll become aware of God - the God who's tapping at the windowpane of our souls. For anyone looking to "make a little more sense of it all" or "live more fully in the moment" this is a really good read!
