Our way is not soft grass,/it's a mountain path with lots of rocks./But it goes upwards, forward, toward the sun.
- Ruth Westheimer
"Feel better soon!" may be appropriate for a friend battling a head cold, but when those we care about are facing the trials of long-term illness or injury, it can be tough to find the right words. That's why we love this slender anthology of "prayers and poems for comfort and healing,"
a thoughtfully curated collection of scripture, poetry, and prose. For while words may not heal the body, they can go a long way toward healing the soul. (KG)
