Taking the Time to Love

Front Cover
Ave Maria Press, 2003 - Family & Relationships - 128 pages
Our normal days are packed with action. With such a hurry in our heads, we often see each other only sideways. We don't have time to enter into each other's inner happenings, especially those we love. A young father remarks, "I am out to work in the morning before the kids get up and when I get home at night, the kids are in bed. My wife works, too. I am so afraid my children will grow up not knowing their parents." What's lost and left of our lives in the fast lane is time for listening, time for talking, time to be with the people we love. Taking the Time to Love, a book of 30 meditations to help the reader refocus on priorities, is ideal for Lenten reflection.
