This book is an emotional attempt at addressing from a humorous poetic point of view, the vast array of thoughts that are produced through close physical encounters with people who are involved in complex interpersonal relationships and their accompanying matrix of issues associated with everyday life. The author describes his style of poetry as “Expressive Poetry”.
Daily life in this day and age can be trying and exhausting. Who couldn’t use more love, encouragement, and grace in their life? Find yourself in the feelings of these stories, get lost in them, and take away something that you can use. Joy and grace are accessible right now to you, more than you’ve really thought.
For we helpfully know in our spirit that, “All things are lawful, but not all things are profitable,” and that “all things are lawful, but not all things edify.” This is our given grace, to be freed to help again and gratefully get us through each day. Be motivated, be encouraged, be you.
Use this book as a devotional, and be inspired to live each day with a joyful spirit and clear conscience. You may even find yourself …
--helping with love --honoring family life --and feeling God’s grace again
We live, we laugh, we help, we believe.

Love. Passion. Distance. Patience. These are things that we all experience throughout the course of relationships. At the moment we begin dating someone new, we are flooded with all sorts of emotions that bring out the best and, sometimes, the worst in us.
From the author of Love Notes comes a collection of verses that take a humorous look at the little predicaments that torment us all. Mary Love Eyster truly believes, “A merry heart does good, like medicine . . .” (Proverbs 17:22a). If King Solomon and Dr. Seuss had collaborated on a book of poems, Life’s Little Frustrations might have been the outcome!
We must learn to look beyond the mirrors of our lives not only to view the outward appearance of what seems to be but with a deep meditation that allows God to speak to us in ways that exalt His glory in our three dimensional world.
Rarely are reflections planned; instead, they are usually triggered by stimuli such as smells, songs, words, or visuals. Time and again, we pause to ponder about a variety of issues and things that evoke emotions that may range from silliness to self-pity. More often than not, these are the things that shape and mold our lives.
Praying is merely talking to a friend. There is no judgment of eloquence; no rules of how short or long a prayer is. The important thing is just to take some time to quiet our busy lives and spend time talking to and being in the presence of our Lord, who loves us with all his heart.
