A Woman's Book of Days offers us a 'way of seeing' the subtle presence of God at work in the common twists, the dream metaphors, the conversations, coincidences, the ponderable questions, and the encounters with people and with beauty that are part of all our lives.

On Healers: Some people, I am told, have a natural capacity to heal others with touch or prayer. And others, maybe all of us, have healing power we could develop. The important ingredient is 'loving intentionality.' This explains why I hover day after day over my seedlings and why even those that have to spend a good part of their young lives in a north window in March still grow up strong. We shouldn't discount the power of our love.

On Sadness: There are times when we are simply sad. Something dark has swum up through the fissures of our soul. It often happens in middle age. We grow strong enough to be sad. The soul waits until we have friends and the strength of maturity to suggest we do our inner work. Inexplicable sadness is just calling us to grow up whole at last.

On Mothering: Mothering might be easier if we knew that the vision we served, the hope we have for our households, was one of the Shalom -- the peaceable kingdom of God, the gentle womb of creation -- not of the courtroom. Of God as the loving friend, not the bringer of punishment. God loves us whether or not we are thin, or successful, or smart, or rich or productive. It's a thought for a spring day: what is my picture of the household of God?
