Review Devotions from the Garden


Book Description

Come to the garden alone, and fill your soul with His presence.
There's nothing on earth like the peace and loveliness of a magnificent garden. It's the place where Adam and Eve first fellow shipped with God, and where you, too, can escape from this chaotic world into His loving arms of beauty and serenity. Devotions from the Garden takes you to that place where senses are restored as dewdrops settle and butterflies gather to witness the miracles of God's creation bloom and grow. These ninety devotions explore the parallels of life with the elements of the garden to help you see God, to sense His presence, to soothe your soul, and to rest in knowing He is with you throughout each day. Included are striking photographs with a fresh, contemporary design for timeless appeal.

My Review:
I was so excited when I received this book, not only is it well written, but the pictures are breath taking!  I wanted to share my favorite part of the book and honestly I had a few lol, so here is one of my favorites, don't worry just giving you a spoiler lol...
Remain in Him
Jesus in John 15:5
Perhaps we are too busy doing these various good things to be truly abiding in the Lord's loving, guiding presence. ( sneak peak at the passage on page 210 )
Each passage on average is 2 pages long, there are 224 pages and  remember there are lots of beautiful pictures as well. I so highly recommend this book ~~! Enjoy these sneak peek pictures..
