Review of

Microbursts!

by DaNella Auten

What is a Microburst? Well, here's an example:

"'Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37:4).' That's not entirely true. Ok, so it is entirely true because God doesn't lie. However, what God doesn't point out here is that the closer you get to God, the more you want to please Him. So, if you delight yourself in Him that would imply a ver close, intimate relationship. I delight in my children. I tell silly 'proud momma' stories like the time that Tymothie told our neighbors that Florida has a hurricane magnet in it (2004 hurricane season). He said, 'Yeah, the magnet is my brother.' I delight in getting my little 3 year old Juliannah to tell people 'I'm gorgeous.' Then I ask her how she got to be so gorgeous and she'll say, 'I look like my mommy.' I digress; my point is I delight in my children. If we delight in the Lord, not only will He give us the desires of our heart, He will change the desires of our heart."

That's just one of the many delightful reflections on God in everyday life that author DaNella Auten calls Microbursts, which she has written and compiled into a little book by that name. They are short, and they make you smile. Read at least one a day, maybe 2, 3, 4, 5. All of these reflections come from DaNella's own life, and they tell how she found God in the little things--in her children, in her husband, in mistakes, in her trials. They are all accompanied with scripture. DaNella writes, "These are stories from my life and how God has helped me handle different things. Through ordinary experiences, God has revealed Himself in extraordinary ways."

You will receive a blessing from this book! And, we are really blessed to have DaNella come to Come To The Waters for a book signing on Saturday, September 13, from 12:30 until 2:30. Come meet this local author from Calera!
