The first story my husband read as a little boy was Stuart Little by E. B. White. Stuart Little is a small, white, talking mouse that lives in New York and has human parents. He sleeps in a cigarette box, drives a toy model car and goes on wild adventures. Some of his adventures are exciting while others are scary and even sad. My husband was frightened of mice, but he imagined owning a mouse like Stuart Little and dreamed of the adventures they would have together. At age 58 he still recalls this 131-page book because it left such an impression on his young mind.
Books have the ability to take us places and impact our lives. Some books, like Stuart Little, make such an impression they stay with us forever.
What books have impacted your life?
The bestselling book of all time is the Holy Bible.
Throughout its pages we read about God and His infinite plan for all mankind. We are introduced to Jesus, God’s son and our Savior. We read about the many exciting adventures that Jesus encountered as well as numerous miracles He performed. As you read about Jesus’ love for humanity you will be awestruck!
The Bible says, “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” (John 15:13 American King James Version)
Jesus laid down his life for his friends, for all mankind.
Many years ago my husband introduced me to the story of Stuart Little. Like my husband, I loved all of the adventures Stuart encountered. It’s a fun story! A make believe story.
The greatest story of all time is the story of Jesus, it’s a true story. This story will leave an impression that is eternal.
The Bible says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”(John 3:16 New International Version)
The Greatest Story of All Time
Good morning Johnna,
I finally found time to read your latest blog. This adventure you’ve embarked upon is most exciting and will open up avenues of discipleship. You just never know where your actions and words will end up. Once in a while I mention to Ruthie wondering if my morning devotions we send out are really read by our children or others. She says “don’t concern yourself with that, your duty is to just send them.” That’s your responsibility. Guess what? About the time I feel this way, someone writes me an email and says how the morning devotion touched their lives.
That’s the same way with your blog; you just never know how your words will affect others. Someone might only read it once in a great while, and then they get an urge to read your blog, that’s the work of the Holy Spirit. Or who knows, maybe they have a great fear and just want to meet Stuart Little!
One day when you start to listen to the Bible on that little thumb drive, you’ll find so much more material to use towards your blog. God loves humor, look how many times He’s turned the table on the devil throughout the ages.
It’s a wonderful day, He made it for us,
Your friend Dannyd
Good Morning to you Danny,
Thank you for popping in and reading my blog and then sharing your thoughts, I really appreciate it 🙂
Your Ruthie is a wise woman! We are answering the call from the Lord and trusting His hand will move hearts and minds to those things, like your morning devotion and my blog, and draw them to Him.
That thumb drive you gave me has a godly purpose, it is no coincidence that you gave it to me prior to getting this blog off the ground 🙂
Thank you for being so awesome and God bless your heart!
