This is the time of year when it feels like our days are racing by at the speed of crazy. Everybody and everything seems to be rush, rush, rush – and rush some more. No time to dilly-dally, too much to do. But, it is also that time of year when people go out of their way to do special things, and to share special gifts. I was on the receiving end of one of those gifts today, and I would like to share it with all of you.
Technically, The Crippled Lamb is a children’s book, but it touched my heart, and I could relate in so many ways. It was a gentle reminder that sometimes it is the very thing that causes us to fret that makes us uniquely special, and positions us to ultimately discover our place in this great big puzzle called life.
It’s a quick read, so I encourage you to take a few minutes and put crazy on pause. I think you’ll be glad you did.
From the cover:
…the story of a little lamb who is different, who is left out and left behind. But one starry night, he learns a lesson that is true for us all…
