Every once in awhile you come across a book that just speaks to your heart and soul. It reaches into your very core and changes you. One Simple Act: Discovering the Power of Generosity by the fabulous Debbie Macomber is one of those books. I was just blow away by Debbie's honesty storytelling and gentle direction on how we can all discover and be changed by the power of generosity.
This past weekend the readings at Mass talked about how we are one body in Christ. When one arm hurts, the entire body is in pain. With the recent devastation in Haiti this could not be more true. I cannot tell you what those pictures do to my heart. The body is hurting right now. We are called to be generous with first and foremost, our prayers, then our time, talent and treasure. Ms. Macomber talks about how we can take care of one another through simple acts of generosity. It is a message that is so needed in today's world.
I highly recommend this book. It will change your heart and help you to realize what your purpose is...to love!
