The Psalms, written by ordinary people thousands of years ago, are filled with the same emotions and issues that challenge, comfort, and confound us today. Their complaints, joys, and celebrations are ours as well. In this book of meditations for each day of the year, best-selling author Barbara Cawthorne Crafton combines reflections on these ancient texts with contemporary stories to help us explore our relationships with God and with one another. From the desire to start afresh in January, to the need to 'lighten up' in December, Crafton's meditations are the perfect daily companion for anyone who finds nourishment in biblically based devotional reading.
