A Pilgrims Almanac Sep 7, 2007
Everything Edward Hays does has surprises. He comes from a place outside the convential and displays deep spiritual understandings. Many of his pages makes one smile if not chuckle.
Breakfast with Ed Hays May 11, 2000
I keep a copy of "The Pilgrims Almanac" on my kitchen table. Every morning I read the reflection and/or story that is on that date. This book is a collection of facts and fiction for each day of the year. Sometimes the story can be about something that I've never thought about before, like the person who invented the stoplight or the first telephone operator. With the fact/story of the day, Ed Hays offers a reflection . I particularly enjoyed the one about the man who invented the stoplight and how instead of rushing through the yellow lights of our life, we should be patient and reflective at those times. I love how his reflections are on topics that anyone can relate to. I've given this book to many of my friends and they have also enjoyed it. The nice part is that even though the stories don't change, the fact that I haven't read them for a year is refreshing. This book offers a daily reflection that is not too long or involved. It reminds me each morning that God is there helping people through their every day ups and downs. I wholeheartedly endorse this book and recommend it to give to friends as a gift. Ed Hays has also written other wonderful books such as "Twelve and a Half Keys" and "Prayers for the Domestic Church".
