Kaleidoscope (Seeing Gods Wit and Wisdom in a Whole New Light) by Patsy Clairmont -
When I picked this book up, I couldn’t put it down. The 33 short chapters were so quick and easy to read. I love the way Patsy begins the book by comparing Psalms to the multicolor scenes of a kaleidoscope. With every turn you can find new and beautiful meanings, that in some way or another can relate to everyone, at some point or another in their life time.
She starts off each chapter with a personal story that she relates to a selected psalm scripture. Patsy uses humor and down to earth language that makes this book a pleasure to read. She puts together the words so beautifully it is like a elegant dance on the pages. Then at the end of each chapter she gets you as a reader involved by asking you “bits and pieces” questions that pertain to the thoughts and ideas of the chapter just read. I loved this aspect because it really gets you thinking about how relevant this is in your life. Fittingly at the very end of the chapter she shares Bible scripture readings that have a common thread with the chapter just read. Patsy entitles these as “held to the light” I thought that this was particularly appropriate because I see the scriptures as shedding light for me on this mysterious and wonderfully existence.
This book is a very good read that I recommend to everyone, young and old alike. You will not be disappointed!
