We live in a world that feels isolating. We find ourselves cut off from the deep springs of comfort and hope that can refresh us. Some of us live with chronic pain. Some of us are emotionally and spiritually damaged. Some of us are entangled in grief. And some of us are just plain stressed, exhausted, and at our wit's end.

In this collection of short meditations, Pastor Lou Bauer offers respite. In his gentle words of encouragement he offers you the way of healing and trusting that God wills your wholeness. These meditations will remind you that God can show you the way of taking enough time to love your little piece of time without forgetting that you also live beyond time.
