Dancing Bones - Patsy Clairmont

Synopsis from B&N: We all want to live on a peaceful mountaintop where we can look down on the world below without getting hurt. With her trademark humor and style, Patsy Clairmont uses the story of "dancing bones" in Ezekiel to remind us that life in the valley can be pretty breathtaking, too. It's often in the valley that we learn and love the most. Rather than running from our troubles, Patsy says true "valley girls" find grace, freedom, and a sense of humor in the midst of turmoil.

I picked up this book on clearance at our local Christian bookstore last spring. I am just now reading it.

It took a few chapters for me to get into it; then I finally began to catch the message.

We all long for “mountain top” experiences. But let’s face it, most of life is lived in the valley and we don’t fully experience the mountaintop until heaven. So let’s make the most of our valley times.

Patsy Clairmont helps point out all of the things we have to appreciate in the valleys of life: friends, pets, wonder, solving the puzzles, food, salvation and so much more. She encourages readers to not look at the “valleys” in their lives as something to drudge through. Oh no. She challenges us all to dance.
