Well I don't usually quote Randy Jackson, but "We've Got A Hot One Baby!" Just finished The Noticer by Andy Andrews and could not put it down.
It's a quick read, compelling and moving. A powerful story of desperation, hopelessness and terminal thinking. But a drifter named Jones comes to town and has the gift of noticing. He sees things that others mostly miss and is unable to be hopeless. Jones believes that a life worth living only takes some "perspective."
I could quote the entire book, but have chosen the one that spoke to me the deepest.
"Think, learn, pray, plan, dream. For soon. . . you will become."
I highly recommend this book, for a little perspective. It makes a great gift for anyone. The book is being released today and you can order your copy by clicking the Amazon box in the lower right corner.
Andy Andrews has also started The Noticer Project. It is a worldwide movement to notice the 5 most influential people in your life. You can do it privately, join the Facebook Noticer Project group, post a note on Facebook, or take your mentor out for a cup of coffee to say thanks.
Whatever it may be, it just might change your life. And it will offer hope, something our world could use a whole lot more of.
This is Audra noticing Steve. You have shown me the love and grace of our Father in Heaven. You make me want to be better, make me want to do the next right thing. I'm grateful beyond words for the positive influence you constantly have on my life.
Who are you noticing today that has been influential in your life? Better tell them-
Ok, I will pick it up for my vacation coming up the last week in May. Sounds like it’s one that touched you. Can’t wait!
Sounds like a wonderful book – and even more than that – a great thing when we really notice those who have been influential in our lives. I love it! Thanks much Audra, for the pointer to this book – and for reminding me to stop and notice those around me. You’re a gift in my life…
I’ve heard a lot of buzz around this book. If you like it, then I’m definitely buying 😀
Thanks, Audra! I have been looking for my next read! Looks great.
Hi I am “Here’s My Cup Lord’s” son. She told me alot about your blog and I think it is cool! Are you a really good photographer? I am asking becase of all the good photos you have on here. If you even tok them yourself… lol Just wondering.
Hi everyone, Yes I really do recommend this book. It’s gotten better as each day has passed, I wish I wasn’t done reading it!
Thanks for stopping by Gordon! No, these aren’t my photos. As of the last few months, I get all my photos from Flickr and iPhotostock. Do you like photography? Do you have a blog I can check out?
No, I don’t have a blog. I do YouTube. However, I wish I could do a Flickr. I love taking photos.
