Synopsis:

Waiting for Bluebonnets is a father’s tender offering to his adult daughter of a carefully crafted and emotionally provocative insight into the ordinary life lived fully, but imperfectly. Acutely aware of his diagnosis of life-threatening heart failure in September of 2001, this middle-aged ordained minister, pastoral counselor, newspaper columnist, and author treated his despair and fear in the way he knew best―by writing. This book contains the brief letters the author wrote to his daughter during the last days he expected to be on this earth, each of which contains a vignette rife with more meaning than first meets the reader’s eye. These letters work in harmony to create a mosaic bearing the proclamation of one man’s almost desperate need to tell his daughter of the redemptive power of love―God’s love―and how that love from God is the single force sufficiently powerful to deliver us from the destructive force of fear. A brief epilogue will provide details about the author’s miraculous recovery. This collection is intended for the spiritual adult who is willing to search beyond the easy answers and platitudes for the questions he or she is willing to pursue in the cause of spiritual growth.
