Whenever author Judith P. Foard-Giucastro had an interesting thought or question about her Christian faith or experienced a moment when she especially felt God's presence in her life, she grabbed whatever scrap paper was nearby and documented her thoughts. Scrap Paper Reflections is a product of those notes she jotted down on a ragtag assortment of scrap paper.
This collection of short meditations and stories charts the faith journey she's taken since her retirement in 2003. Some of the selections describe the joys of a slower pace of life after retirement, the anxiety and grief associated with the long-term illness and death of her first husband, coming to terms with that loss, the joy of falling in love again and marrying, the illness and unexpected death of her second husband, and the attempt to move on with life. In other stories, Foard-Giucastro raises religious questions, points out something new she's seen in a scriptural passage, or tells of special times in God's presence.
Insightful and inspirational, Scrap Paper Reflections shares Foard-Giucastro's ongoing encounters with God as well as her questions, her doubts, and her discoveries.
