To Walk With Thee: Songs of the Spirit
by Barbara Rautner
To Walk With Thee: Songs of the Spirit is a collection of Reflections in poetic form. As a person of the Christian faith, the author set out to attempt to express eternal spiritual truth in the language of 21st century thought, and found herself on a journey of deepening and nurturing spiritual experience. The book is the story of that journey.
We must all deal with pain and loss, as well as finding much goodness and joy in daily life; we may be grateful or discontent. What do we think and feel about ourselves, our relationships, and what do we learn from our experience? To Walk With Thee focuses the light of spirituality on daily life, and reflects on our calling and our abundant blessings.About the Author
