“Signs of His Presence – Experiencing God’s Comfort in Times of Suffering

               In America, a person is considered innocent until proven guilty. Or, at least, that’s how we are told it is supposed to work. That is not how it worked for Pat Mire. His former employer was involved in criminal activity, and even though Pat had not worked for him for over four years, he was charged with twenty-nine counts of criminal activity.

                In Signs of His Presence – Experiencing God’s comfort in Times of Suffering Pat’s wife, Luann, along with good friend, Patti Richter, chronicles this experience. She writes of the pain and anguish this situation caused her family. She writes about the suffering and grief. Of nights alone. Of birthdays, anniversaries and holidays “celebrated” within the walls of a prison. But more importantly, Luann writes of the presence of God and how He showed Himself to her through scriptures given to her at just the right moment and of friends who shared with her what God had shown them as they had prayed for her and Pat. God spoke to her through her journaling and gave her and Pat many other signs to let them know that He had not forgotten them. The most beautiful sign was the red cardinals that frequently appeared as reminders that God was with them.

                If you, or someone you know, is going through a time of suffering, this book is for you. Your circumstances may not be the same, but you can take comfort, just as Luann did, in the Signs of His Presence.
