'...I feel at last that I am embracing the present moment of life. I haven't arrived, I'm just resting; resting beside quiet waters that inevitably churn and stir from time to time and turn into strong currents that drag me back into the river of the hectic everyday.' This book takes you on a quest through the chaos of Middle Eastern city life and the drama of a youth-led revolution to endless stretches of desert sand, and Bible places from Mount Sinai to the shores of Galilee. This quest, along life's dusty detours, is in search of oases of all kinds - people, places, and little glimpses of eternity. Lynne's journey involves laughter, tears and raw honesty, and is often one lurch forward and two steps backward, but it has led her to deeper insights into faith and greater reliance on God than she ever imagined.
What the papers say:
'Lynne Chandler shows us the way of blessing... This is a book of hope. From the foreword by John Philip Newell 'A fascinating and delightful read. There are lessons for each of us in Lynne's beautifully observed meditations and poetry. Savour each chapter; this is not a book to be rushed.' Alie Stibbe
