If you are overwhelmed by the pressures of life and cannot even find a stopping point, then accept the invitation to enter the Prayer Cottage and the Sacred Garden. There the Savior will allow you to experience His grace, find a new perspective, and be restored. You will want to read this beautiful allegory again and again, returning to the Prayer Cottage and the Sacred Garden to find the peace you seek.
Rocky sounded like a friendly tour guide! God put this in my path for a reason- I so needed to hear these words and get myself back on track. Many times I felt tears welling up, vocally agreeing, and 'amening' all over the place. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
In 2001, a community of people in the Appalachian foothills had come to the edge of all they had ever been. Across the South, padlocks and chains bound the doors of silent mills, and it seemed a miracle to blue-collar people in Jacksonville, Alabama, that their mill still bit, shook, and roared. The mill had become almost a living thing, and they served it even as it filled their lungs with lint and shortened their lives. In return, it let them live in stiff-necked dignity in the hills of their fathers.
Living in the South and listening to Rick tell the story about the textile mills is like hearing an old friend at the kitchen table talking about your people and our history like only he can tell it. I enjoyed it immensely!
