That's where I found myself this morning at the end of Elaine Olsen's, Peace for the Journey. Closing the back cover, slow and methodical, it felt like I was losing a friend. I sat there wondering what to do next and how to top this wonderful journey. Her study has been my companion for a couple of months now. I've taken notes, underlined sentences, highlighted words, and dog-eared pages to remember particular points. I even wrote quotes from her study in my 3x5 index cards to review for a later time. I'm sad it's over. It was so good I feel a sense of loss. Now, that's a good study!
I wrote about Elaine's work in Your Sista's Having a Hista, Part 4, Hidden Treasures. It touched me deeply then and continued to impress to the end.
I can't say enough about this study and recommend it for personal study as well as groups. You won't be disappointed.
Fitting enough, Elaine concludes her prize quoting Jesus's words in John 14:27, "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
Thank you dear friend for the gift of walking with you through this study.
