Everything goes through seasons. Our gardens, our faith, our lives, and indeed, all of God’s creation are part of a cycle of life and decay. Catherine invites us to focus in on the everyday mess of life to find evidence of God’s grand plan of creation and redemption. A spring thaw brings hope, summer’s growth brings abundance, autumn’s harvest cultivates gratitude, and winter’s dormancy brings dependence. Delightful word pictures such as, “Watermelons, peaches, and ice cream cones drip with sweet nectar, rolling down our chins and arms, creating sticky hands and hair,” fill this book and the temptation to underline is great. Catherine concludes each short chapter with several practical steps to integrate these lessons into our own lives. A discussion guide is included at the end for small groups or individual study. Great for a church library and great gift book.
