One day I slipped into a familiar card shop and glanced at the cover of a devotional book that appealed to me, Beside a Quiet Stream: Words of Hope for Weary Hearts by Penelope J. Stokes. As I read I was inspired and renewed by the short, meaningful devotionals. I have since read her Simple Words of Wisdom: 52 Virtues for Every Woman. Now I’m a fan.
Thanks Dad! Lessons from the Lake on Living and Loving, is a brief but insightful account of lessons that the young Penelope gleaned from her father over the years during their weekly fishing excursions from their lakeside property.
Some of the virtues described in this colorfully illustrated text are: Responsibility, Skill, Risk, Self-Awareness, Priorities, Courage,
I joyfully recommend this small volume to you, for you, along with the two previous volumes mentioned. They make lovely gifts!
