I have discovered over the years, that life can be challenging. God desires to sustain us as we look for "splashes of His grace" every day. My desire is that through posts, or book reviews, you may find something that points you to the grace of God, and that He ultimately will make a difference in your life.

Thank You, God, For Blessing Me
Thank you, God, For Blessing Me, is a wonderful
little book that is part of Max Lucado’s “Hermie the Catepillar” series that
will encourage your child to recognize and be thankful for both the big and
little things God gives us each day.In
a simple prayer, Hermie expresses his appreciation for all the blessings he has
received, for daily provisions, relationships, and His creation. It's also great that Lucado includes the idea that being kind and obeying are special ways to say thank you to God.In
a world that teaches entitlement and greed is good, this little book can reinforce the biblical
concept that every good and perfect gift comes from our Heavenly Father and for these blessings we should give thanks!
The book, written in rhyme, is easy to follow and
the illustrations capture the essence of the story perfectly.You see Hermie praying and the things he
prays for are things that the child can relate to.It is colorful and the perfect size to take
along with you when traveling.Since it
is a board book, it is sturdy enough for a young child to “read” on his own. I would definitely recommend this book for the
preschool child.Perhaps it can even
lead into a conversation between parent and child about specific things he or
she is thankful for.
I received a complementary copy of this book
from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com book review blogger program. I was
not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my
