Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!

Having a bad day? Having a bad year? With this warm and thoughtful volume, Kathleen Long Bostrom offers 100 simple exercises that will boost your spirit and, more important, strengthen your spirit—that essential part of you that connects you to God.
