The Butterfly Effect

At some point while reading this short but powerful book by Andy Andrews, I asked myself why the need to come up with a book with - how do I put this - only a few words in it.

I mean honestly, it's my first time excluding kindergarten to read a book with a sentence or two only on every page!

Then, I realized that maybe, just maybe, the author is trying to stress something extremely important. Something he wants to cut across without fail.

The first time I read it, it took me less than 5 minutes. The second time, it took me days. Until now, my mind is stuck in a few of the pages, in its inspiring stories, in its challenging quotes.

Over all, I guess what I am simply saying is, that until now my mind still can't grasp the fact that whatever we do now - no matter how small or insignificant they may be - really have an impact in this world beyond our minds could ever comprehend.

Now that's amazing.

Same Kind of Different as Me

Books on friendships always have a special place in my heart. When I read "Same Kind of Different as Me," I realized the last time I cried so hard from reading a book was The Shack. Of course, the two have different stories, but the impact to me is almost the same: It was as if I ended up broken only to be made whole again.

Authors Ron Hall and Denver Moore with Lyn Vincent all did a great job in coming up with this New York Times Bestseller. It is the most compelling and most inspirational book on friendship I have ever read.

It reminded me of how simple Christianity really us. And really, it's about relationships. First of course, with God. Then, with everyone else.

I am hoping this book will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and start living the life Christ died to provide. Coz really, it did the same thing to me.

God bless you.
