I bought this book a couple of years ago and I cannot tell you what an awesome story it is. It doesn't matter if you do or do not have children to read it to....I encourage you to
So of course we are reading and learning about Easter right now.....so I include some type of Easter themed story into our bedtime reading. This story is perfect for this time of year as well as at Christmas......well anytime, but once you read it....you'll understand. And don't let the "folklore" subtitle fool you. This story is all about the real God we serve.
I will give you the message of the story.....but trust me, this isn't spoiling anything. The beauty will be revealed when you read it yourself and enjoy it as a package with the beautiful illustrations.
The story just reinforces something that I often pray and think about. I believe that God places desires in our heart for a reason. He has a plan for our lives. He is for us, not against us. And even when events in our lives do not play out the way we plan/hope......it is always for the greatest good and we will experience His faithfulness in the end.
I am going to pop this over at We are That Family's WFMW fun....because this message (book) definitely works for me this Wednesday....and always!!!
Have a great day!
