Morning Meditations at Marina's Kitchen Table; A Devotional Memoir

I wanted to say "Thank You" to all of you who have been so supportive of my first book, and also share a little insight from the book to those of you who may not have seen it yet. In a little way, this is my abbreviated and a little late book launch. I'm including Day 1 here, so you can read it and see how it's to be used. There are a few prayers, a little essay on my life experience, another prayer, a few more verses for you to look up, and an exercise to do. I pray that it's a blessing to you, and inspires you to spend more time with God in the midst of your morning. Stay tuned for other posts this week, where I share other parts from the book. Blessings, Marina Day 1 Morning Prayer God I need You in my life today. Thank You for meeting me here in the quiet of the day, allowing me to discover Your peace and presence. Settle my mind and spirit and help me to focus on Your presence right now. I feel You, and I need to know Your touch, hear Your voice

It seems by the end of October nothing will remain but bare hillsides, brown empty branches and muddy fields. But in the remnants of that lays the quiet dormancy of winter, where roots grow deep, renourishing, and preparing twigs, branches and fields to regenerate life. Seeds dropped in fall are buried in rich organic matter, only to be protected from the harsh winter elements as they wait for spring’s return. So goes my life.

From a recent Amazon book review... "I’ve only just begun this devotional and already I’m a huge fan. The first couple chapters have been immediately relatable to me as a young mom. I love the additional scriptures that help you dive deeper in God’s word, and the questions at the end have really challenged me to act on the convictions God brings through the reading. Already I can see how this study is going to deepen my faith and encourage me to apply what I learn. My quiet time was kind of stuck in a rut of routine reading and immediately forgetting what I read. This devo was just what I needed to have a real heart to heart conversation with God each day."
