The Waiting Place, Eileen Button

Who hasn't been in the state of waiting: waiting on a bus, waiting on the elevator, waiting on the doctor, waiting on marriage, waiting on babies, waiting for the time of our children's graduation. All of us have waited at some point in our lives. In fact in all honesty it seems that we move from one waiting place to another.

This book is filled with short essays about just that - waiting. In it you will be encouraged in the time of waiting you are experiencing now. Your perspective might even be forever altered as she read through each essay. I truly enjoyed the honesty and open writing style of Eileen Button. With truth and candor she opens up her heart for others to see. Through it we are invited to savor those times of waiting, to eagerly look for God during these times, to grow with Him and in Him.

I believe this is a book to be read over and over. It is one that will be dog-eared, or marked with sticky-note tabs to mark you favorite essays. Each person who picks up a copy of this book will be able to relate to at least on, if not more, of the essays.

Take time to enjoy your waiting place - look carefully and see what God is doing.

Thank you Booksneeze and Thomas Nelson for this review copy.
