Book Description: Catherine Campbell's experience as a nurse and as the mother of two girls who both inherited a rare genetic condition that required constant care until their deaths at ages 10 and 13 has given her a unique insight into suffering. As an inspirational speaker, she frequently encounters people with tragic stories. And yet she believes that God is Lord and that in both good times and bad, He is always good.
My Thoughts: Rainbows for Rainy Days by Catherine Campbell is a collection of devotionals readings for 40 days.
Catherine Campbell has dealt with quite a bit of grief and yet she knows that God is there for her just as He was there with a promise of the rainbow when Noah and his family had gone through some rough waters.
This small, hardback book is chock full of encouragement with Scriptures at the top of each page where the devotional begins.
All of the devotionals are inspiring and encouraging but the one that "popped" out at me was on p. 24, day/number 36: "Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9b.
Joshua faced the biggest task and the biggest fear of his life. God saw his fear and God was telling Joshua, I will be with you every step of the way. Yes, Catherine has had devastating lost in her life but yet she writes not of her experiences but she writes from God's Word to encourage others.
Such an encouraging read!
This book makes a great gift or it would make a great "card" for someone who is going through a rough patch in life.
