Book Review: Devotions from the Garden


Devotions from the Garden:
Finding Peace and Rest from Your Hurried Life
by Miriam Drennan

This beautiful, full color book is bursting with photographs of country gardens, butterflies, flowers, birdbaths, and ladybugs. Sigh. What a refreshing and lovely addition to our time with God. Each of the devotional thoughts begins with a Scripture and includes a personal lesson to apply by looking at nature through the eyes of the Creator who made each dewdrop and sparrow to bless and nourish our souls as a reflection of His love and tender care for each one of us. There is a simple prayer at the end.

What I Like
I’ve read devotionals for years. My favorites are MY UTMOST FOR HIS HIGHEST, STREAMS IN THE DESERT, and CHARLES SPURGEON’S morning and evening devotions. Well, now I have a new favorite! I love, love, love, how these lessons are taken straight from the garden. From harvesting blackberries to waiting for seeds to grow to planting a butterfly garden, each devotion has such a tender and encouraging life lesson for us to learn.

The author’s heart and love for gardens and for God shine through in this wonderful book. But better than that, the heart of God, the love of Jesus, and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit shine through each vivid example of God’s creation and the lessons God wants each of us to learn.

-Thanks, BookLook Bloggers for another wonderful free book in exchange for my honest review!
