The Waiting Place

Full Product Description

A collection of essays describing the beauty and humour that can be found in what often feels like a most useless state — The Waiting Place. We all spend precious time just waiting. We wait in traffic, grocery store lines, and carpool circles. We wait to grow up, for true love, and for our children to be born. We even wait to die. But amazing things can happen if we open our eyes in 'The Waiting Place' and peer into its dusty corners. Sometimes relationships are built, faith is discovered, dreams are (slowly) realized, and our hearts are expanded. With humour and heart-breaking candor, Eileen Button breathes life into stagnant and, at times, difficult spaces. Throughout this collection of essays she contends that 'The Waiting Place' can be a most miraculous place—a place where beauty can be experienced, the sacred can be realized, and God can be found working in the midst of it all. Includes stories on waiting for: - the day to end
- a place called home
- the fish to bite
- a baby's healing
- church to be over
- a husband's return
- children to grow
- a mother's acceptance
- a loved one to die As Eileen says, "To wait is human. To find life in The Waiting Place, divine." 240 Pages
