This little book doesn't pack quite the punch of similar books, but it wasn't designed to do so. Instead, it serves as a gentle reminder...having its own unique voice. I found it delightful and refreshing. I have total confidence that it will find its own audience among those who are discouraged, downtrodden...or lost in the wilderness of this world.
Harold Myra's "One Extraordinary Day" tells the story of a man named David. His job has been downsized and he feels disillusioned by the work he does. No appreciation, no recognition, and no satisfaction have driven him to the edge of burnout.
His wife, Marcia, encourages him to just get away from everything for one day. Realizing the wisdom in her counsel, David books himself in a hotel far out in the wilderness area, hoping to find something to encourage him.
What David finds is more than he bargained for...a mysterious stranger who offers mysterious advice that makes absolutely no sense...until...
...now, did you REALLY think I was going to tell you?? Then you'd have no reason to go out and buy this wonderful little book! And you have many reasons, because too many are suffering from disillusion and discouragement these days.
Both believers and those who don't believe are lost in the wilderness of this world at times, and both need this gentle yet powerful reminder found in "One Extraordinary Day".
Thus, I'm giving it five out of five bookmarks, with an autumn leaf as a charm...something that always seems to bring out the hope in MY soul...and I'm hoping this little book will bring out the hope in YOURS.
