Life pulls us in many directions, sometimes even to the point of pulling our souls apart. We know rest and reflection are necessary for a healthy life--even Jesus took time to get away from the crowds, away from the demands of everyday life, to pray, to spend time with close friends, to sleep.But when Carolyn Weber--emotionally and physically exhausted from managing her career as a college professor, writing her first book and parenting three children under the age of three--hears this truth from a friend, all she can think is: but who will do everything if I don't?And this sets her on a journey to find the still, small space in each day.In these pages Carolyn reflects on the eternal beauty that lurks within the present. Drawing from literature, history and everyday life, Holy Is the Day is a collection of spiritual reflections that trace the way God's ever-renewing grace is a gift of the present. Opening it we find poignant stories of endurance, humility, compassion, remembrance and gratitude, as well a harrowing account of near-death experience.Carolyn gives us new eyes to receive the precious gift of the present and give it away to others.… (mere)

I wrote a post on my blog about my favorite 2013 reads. A commenter suggested this book. I procured a library copy before I realized that this was the author of Surprised By Joy, a book I really enjoyed.

This book tells Weber's story of balancing academic life and faith in the midst of motherhood, writing and constant demands on her time. She learns to be vulnerable,deepen relationships, to 'seize God' and squirrel away times for retreat(or at least a few stolen moments).

Weber is a fantastic author and this is well crafted. The story is framed by two pregnancies. She describes the birth of her twins which began as an easy labor but ended with her on the operating table without anesthesia. The book ends with her pregnant with her and her husband Kent's fourth child--a pregnancy which the medical community recommends she aborts. In between is the stuff of life--postpartum depression, small joys, epiphanies, tension in living out faith in academic life, and God's surprising provision and direction.

Really great book! ( )
