    Book Review by Wanda Gail Campbell

    This delightful guide to expanded personal growth and spiritual strength expresses how one woman moved from a fearful and distrusting image of an external, and mostly inaccessible, God to an awareness of knowing that God dwells within all the time. She describes how externally her life reflected deep denial of life and a God-poverty condition of soul as she demonstrated multileveled suffering. When her soul opened up, everything changed.

    In the introduction she sets the stage for personal freedom as she offers the following wisdom:“Remain open. There is something bigger than you going on here.” It quickly becomes evident that once she regained awareness of God within her, she became able to offer her own divine gifts to the world by writing truthfully and translucently about her experiences. The book is developed in several phases of HonoringThe Divine.

    Thanks are written especially for Charles Fillmore founder of Unity Village as she quotes him: “there is but one mind and we are each a manifestation of that Mind, the mind of God, the Divine.” Other New Thought teachers are mentioned as she lays claim to her own “Godliness”.

    The author then proceeds to develop a wondrous method that takes the reader/participant on a 40 day (and night) journey. Each day begins with written definition of a foundational principle that provides the reader clarity of focus for this day. Her personal commentary follows- giving food for thoughtful awareness as one experiences the day. Space is also provided for recording insights from the commentary then moves on to solidify intentions for the day with affirmation and prayer. At the end of the day, readers deepen their own integration of principle by returning to write and reflect upon how the day’s experiences relate back to the theme.

    Yesterday, I began this book a second time, 4 ½ years after the first rendering, This time I’m using a different color of ink to compare my first notes with this new journey. I already see evidence of how this book stimulated my personal growth and continues to perk m y spiritual expansion. This book costs $15 and has already proven itself to be priceless.

Just by chance (but nothing really happens by chance) I went to your blog today to read the most recent story. I haven't been out here in months! Though I came to read the current story about having it all, I was quickly directed to your story about saying good bye to an old friend. David, I needed to read that story today. There's no doubt in my mind that the Good Lord directed my fingers to click on that story. Though I didn't know Tommy I could certainly relate to the advice he gave you and in effect the advice you have just given me:) I needed to read that because I saw myself in that Run for Life mode and not enjoying the little things, the actual important things along the way. Just this week I was in Dallas for meetings. I called home and spoke to Tracie, Nyala and Juwan to find that once again I missed the little things. Nyala lost her first tooth and her excitement in losing her tooth and experiencing the Tooth Fairy's visit was more important to her than anything in life. Though I could hear the excitement, somewhat feel her joy, in pales in comparison to being there!! I too must learn (again) to Walk through Life and enjoy the moments. Sorry for the lost of your friend but even in his death, Tommy is still touching you and you touching others with his advice.

Take Care,


HP van Duuren

My condolences, this kind of things hardly ever seem to be associated with "Happy", although I once heared an expression going something like this: "Every good-bye, is the Birth of a Memory" and I don't see anything wrong in also taking time for thinking about Happy Memories and appriciating life.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend, David. My father-in-law has been struggling with the same disease for the last few years. He is not expected to last through the summer.

My condolences,

It's always sad to see our dear ones leaving us for ever. We stay helpless. Our life doesn't belong to us. Once we're born death awaits us all.
We, in turn, lost an eminent cardiologist last week. A man of heart, his look always shining, ready to help ease the suffering of all, living at jet speed, he left us at the same pace. Son of our ex-President he leaves behind a widow and two children. Dr. Oomar Uteem will ever be remembered for his quest for excellence and his concern for perfection.
The irony is in the concern for saving others' heart he couldn't save his. He passed away after a myocardial infarct as diagnosed by his uncle, also doctor by profession.
Life is a mystery and we just got to pray that we live and leave this world in peace.
My deep condolences to you, David, and to Tommy's dear ones.

What a wonderful tribute to your friend, Tommy. My mother had COPD and had it limit her much like Tommy. I still remember her often and feel grief at her loss. Thank you for sharing with him and yourself with us.


Albert Grande

Thank you very much for taking the time to remind us, not to forget. Sometimes, we need to be reminded. I truly feel for you, David.
I have lost some close friends over the years. It still hurts at times.
As Espo always says: "When they're gone, they're gone. Take care of them while they're still here. Make each moment count."
Be well, stay well. Thank you, again.

Hi David,
To the family of Tommy our prayers and condolences.

We too lost 2 dear family members last July to this terrible breath sucking disease.

To know that they and Tommy are now flying with angels is the most awsome of gifts that our Lord Jesus Christ has given them.

May they soar with the Eagles forever more..

Our prayers are also with you and your family on the loss of a dear friend.

God Bless you and keep you by his side. AMEN

With great sorrow and Love.

Randy Baldwin.

Sorry to hear of the passing of a loved one, never a good thing to hear but it seems as though his time here was filled with good memories and times to many people, and I know he will be greatly missed, and never forgotten.

God Bless


Sorry to hear about your friend Tommy. It is always sad to lose a good friend especially someone who is as nice as you describe.

At least he knew he has good friends to give his Wife the support she will now need and could he could die in peace.


So sorry to hear about your friend. What a great way to pay tribute to someone who made a difference in your life by sharing some of those thoughts with us! That is what life should be about, relationships. Relationships with each other and our God. Even in your final meeting (on earth) he left you with good advice--slow down and enjoy. I will take this advice as well and spend the rest of this Sunday with my family. Thanks for sharing.


Steven Gibbs

Dear David, I am so sorry about your loss. There is nothing that I can say to ease your pain. Sometimes pain is a good thing in that you will remember what it is to have someone so special in your life. Seems that we take too much for granted and think that our loved ones will always be there. Just appreciate the fact that you were able to meet and experience such a great man. To Tommy.

Sandra Bowman

So sorry to hear of Tommy's passing. I'm sure he knew how much you cared simply by the time and sharing you gave him. You allowed him to love and give to you. Sometimes that is the best gift we can give another.

I can look around and see others who will be full of regrets when certain others are no longer here because they didn't visit or communicate when they could and I wonder if there is any way to 'wake up' these folks before it's too late. Perhaps you have found a way to help others through sharing your regret and pain.

Thanks and God bless.
