The Little Soul and the Sun: A Children’s Parable Adapted from Conversations With God
By Neale Donald Walsch
I love sharing with you and today I wanted to share the special book above which my friend MoJo at Momentum of Joy! recently suggested that I should read because it was such a great little book! So, I simply hopped on my trusty kindle, the one I gifted myself this year after reading Sharechair’s all-things-kindle many posts about this wonderful machine! Within minutes and after a small credit card charge, I had downloaded the book and was ready to read it. Truly, I love the ease of technology! We are so blessed, aren’t we? I could have waited 2 days to receive the book by mail, but I felt that pull to enjoy it today and I am so grateful that I listened to myself!
It’s a children’s book, but it’s also very adult-friendly and as I began to read it and understand it, tears began trickling down my cheeks as I felt my soul start to be soothed in a way I had never before felt. It was like an avalanche of understanding that had welled up inside of me, burst through the dam that I had erected around my heart and I felt loved.
I know I’m probably not making sense again ~I guess it’s like when I recently said I feel delicious from my post The Shift to Feeling Delicious but I want you to know that this was again ~ a shift, a changing book and I wanted you to be aware of it if you weren’t already. Do you know Neale Donald Walsch? Have you heard of him? He sends daily emails which are inspiring to your inbox when you get on his list. He also has a few more books out that you can read as well.
You see, with my dad gone, it’s been a bit rocky trying to wrap up his affairs and business while mourning him ~ and having so much left unsaid. Surely there are others out there reading my blog who may have had this same experience ~ not being able to understand parts of a parent or loved one who’s passed and wanting to ask so many questions? I am sure I am not the only one, am I?
Anyway, my relationship with my dad was messy and I’ve often wondered, pondered, asked out-loud to the air, why he acted the way he did with me ~ why he treated me the way he did and hundreds of other inquiries that I had. My mom has repeatedly said that he loved me, but there are moments where I seriously doubt that he could have loved someone and still acted the way he did. His favorite saying was “You hurt the ones you love the most” ~ to which I would always reply in my head, “Then don’t love me.” It was a true conundrum to me…until now.
I won’t give away this book as I think it may read differently to each person who reads it, but I want you to know that I get it now. I understand and I am so grateful for my dear MJAngel and for her wise suggestion.
So if you’re interested in getting your own copy for yourself, your children or your grandchildren, click The Little Soul and the Sun: A Children’s Parable Adapted from Conversations With God. I truly think that whether you get the hardcover book or you get the kindle version, you will be changed by this book ~ in such an amazing way.
I look forward to hearing from you!
