This is a wonderful pick-me-up book! Each day is very encouraging and motivational! I'm so glad I was made aware of it so I could begin reading it. Also, it's so great for someone, like myself, who suffers from anxiety and depression to receive an uplifting message each and every day! I highly recommend this book.
Who doesn't seek simplicity in their life in this day and age? Sarah Ban Breathnach brings this "breath" of fresh air to us everyday with this devotional spanning 365 days. It doesn't relate to a specific year so each day you read a fresh thought to revel in for the day. It is nice to be able to reference the devotion each year and measure the changes from year to year. Obviously some devotionals may not apply to your life that day or that year, but it may not be about you but someone you love. I found it a source to share in encouraging friends, family and folks in need. You can easily copy the text because they are short and mail it to friends far away. I found I am blessed by a card or letter from a friend incredulous over how I knew they needed that message. It is a God thing. Let this be your greatest daily tool to bring about so much in so many. Words make a great deal of difference. Say something nice to a stranger and see how they brighten up. Sarah is doing the same thing for us in this book.
