Seasonal Poems: From May to Christmas and from January to Easter / Sauls, R. Lynn / Paperback / LSI

945-7050 L


About the Book 

“O to be as moveless as a tree that sways within an autumn wind all wet with rain.”

If one can be still long enough to listen, to notice the minutest details in the barkless elm or the song of the chickadee, eternal truths can be perceived that the rushing world around us tries to drown out in its noise and chaos.

God exhorts us in the Bible to “be still, and know that I am God.” R. Lynn Sauls takes this to heart and embraces each moment of reflection to discover even more about the God that he loves and who holds all of us in His hands. Lynn uses his gift of word to explore the power of God’s love that surrounds us every day in the natural world and to craft poetry that inspires and encourages the reader.

In every season of nature—and of life—God has a special message for each of us. In order to hear it, however, we must, like Lynn, be still and through patience and meditation come to know God’s eternal plan for us.

Available in PAPERBACK and eBOOK formats.

    Awed by the Creator and His creation, one can see Lynn Sauls' love, enjoyment and sympathy with nature as he personifies the secret thoughts and prayers of the animals. Lynn’s poems laced with passages of scripture help to keep this compilation current, interesting and inspiring.
    ~ Rose Dawkins, Ed.D retired School Administrator, Worcester, MA.

  2. Stories are filled with a Jesus-guided exuberance... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jan 2022

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    Lynn Sauls, a long-time respected teacher of writers, has written an inspiring book that includes stories of his life and meditations about his experiences and observations. The stories are filled with a Jesus-guided exuberance, and the meditations breathe a quiet but confident repose. It seems to me that this admirable book will be cherished especially by reflective readers of writers such as Thomas Traherne, Henry David Thoreau, Annie Dillard, Philip Yancey, and Kathleen Norris.
    ~ Myron Wehtje, History Professor

  3. Beautifully-arranged 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jan 2022

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    SEASONAL POEMS is a beautifully-arranged collection, organized not just by the seasons but also anchored to the Christian celebrations of Christmas and Easter. The poems tie specific and striking images from nature and human experience to the rhythm of Christ’s life, His birth, death, and resurrection, emphasizing how central these events are to our own continuous need for spiritual hope and renewal.
    ~ Delmer Davis, Professor of English, Emeritus, Andrews University.

  4. Delightful Collection 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jan 2022

    TEACH Services received the following review:
    Lynn Sauls’ SEASONAL POEMS is a delightful collection. The idiom is contemporary, but the questions are old. His way of stating his thoughts is amazing to me and the sequence is very logical, leading to a specific end. Many of his poems show that close observers of the natural world can draw questions and thoughts of eternal importance.
    ~ History Professor Floyd Greenleaf, author and poet.
