The traffic jam, the long line at the drive-through, the spinning ball on the computer—in our hectic and busy lives, these times of waiting, waiting, waiting can leave us frustrated and even angry. But they don’t need to. In fact, if we look at them differently, says Martina Lehane Sheehan, these times can be daily opportunities to practice a sense of balance and self-possession.
In this wise and eloquent little book, Lehane Sheehan shows us that by focusing on wakefulness, listening, discernment, heartfulness, acceptance, choosing newness, and joy, we can put frustration aside and find peace and serenity and a new sense of life. Although perfect for Advent reading, Waiting in Mindful Hope speaks to every season and every time. It will help deepen your connection to the Spirit who guides us all.
