About the Book
About the Book The Healing Desert: In the Sands of Time As a cancer survivor, I can tell you that I would not be where I am today without my deep faith in the power of the almighty God. Along with my personal story of healing and spiritual development, I have tried to put my feelings into poems, and I pray that you will be able to capture the messages in between, knowing that our God never fails us. Too often, we are crushed, broken, and spilled out, and we never understand why it’s all happening. Have you ever asked yourself the following? Why do I suffer so much? Why do I always have to carry a burden? Yet Jesus promised, “Come to Me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). The Healing Desert is here to show you how to develop your trust and faith in the Lord, and how He is going to bring about positive change in your life. Are you ready to receive a first-hand account of God’s miracles and wondrous works? If your answer is yes, then I encourage you to take a journey with me through this Healing Desert: In the Sands of Time while we ponder this mystery: Do I really know and understand God’s love for me? Tuesday October 8, 2013, 5.30 am Feast of St Denis & Companions, Martyrs I finished reading this book written by Mrs. Mona Hadeed this morning. I found the material compelling reading, and at times it brought tears to my eyes. This is a true story, a very human story of Mona, her life, joys, sorrows and struggles. But with sound faith in God, Mona overcame the impossible! To God be all the Glory. Fr Michael Hayden Parish Priest, St Finbar’s Roman Catholic Church
