Profound, yet simple Feb 6, 2008
I agree with the previous review - this book would be fantastic for gift giving. Leigh has a unique and powerful way of making the simple profound, and the profound simple.
a great gift! Jan 31, 2008
this is a wonderful book with a very cool feature in the back...a guide for a 5-day personal retreat. i used it recently on vacation and was so blessed by it. it really helped to give some structure and focus to a time of solitude. i highly recommend this book for a thought-provoking, inspirational read.
A very special devotional Jan 25, 2008
What do a junk drawer, an iPod and a Broadway musical have in common? They are all instruments to see God, if you so choose.
In The Sacred Ordinary, Leigh McLeroy gives us 112 daily meditations based on everyday things. You don't have to be in a stained glass-covered cathedral to hear from God, He is present in even the most ordinary things if we will only look. I especially enjoyed her take on the iPod. That no matter how much we try to compress God into "randomly ordered samplings," there is no way we can ever comprehend Him.
The Sacred Ordinary is composed of sections of Ordinary Places, Ordinary People, Ordinary Things, Ordinary Moments, and Ordinary Words-and nothing is so ordinary as to not be mentioned. She also includes an appropriate scripture and a thought for you to apply the passage to your life and circumstances.
I think what is special about this devotional, is that it trains us to see God in OUR ordinary lives, not just hers. It challenged me to continually be on a mission to see and hear from God in my most frustrating moments as well as the "holy" ones. This isn't a devotional to work through and then shelve; rather it is one to keep on the end table and page through on a regular basis. Be challenged. Your ordinary can be extraordinary.
