Finished Reading: We Stood Upon Stars

I love short stories, maybe it’s because of my short attention span but I love how people are able to tell a well developed story, truth or made up in a concise way. I also love traveling. And I love a good adventure with some deep perspective. 

Roger W. Thompson’s book We Stood Upon Stars; Finding God in Lost Places had me laughing so hard my sides hurt, and crying so hard the next that I couldn’t actually read the words on the page. Thompson reflects on travels with his family and the retrospective spiritual learnings from those trips & adventures.

When I lived in Colorado, my relationship with God was like that of a good friend. Hiking in the woods was not only a time to dwell in creation but to mediate and lean on Him when I had no other options. Reading Thompson’s stories at parks, forests, and roads I have driven on, to places I have been, effortlessly reignited the memories I had and made me love these stories even more. If you’ve road tripped through California, Colorado, or Montana many of these destinations will be familiar to you. If you haven’t, jump in the car and let Thompson’s adventures guide your next road trip.

Not only are the stories fabulous, but the drawings before each one are beautifully drawn by none other than his wife. What a lovely contribution to read his words and dwell on her images.

I loved this book and recommend it for wanderlusting adventurers seeking some new perspective. Grab a copy, HERE.
