Shirt of Flame- Fred

All right, book people.  I just finished last night.  Go ahead, slap my hand.  I knew I couldn't make the meeting so I gave myself some room to be lazy.  I wish I would stop doing that.

I do not have anything very poetic to say- that's Terri's job- but I wanted to post a response to one of Lauren's questions.

Regarding Fred, I thought that Heather King did an excellent job of making him real to us.  Everybody has a Fred in their life. I love how she wove him into the story and used his life to show us how all of God's people should be treated- with patience, compassion, and love.  Period. That is exactly what St. Therese did.

We make a big deal out of St. Therese's 'little way,' but after reading this book, it does not look quite as little to me.  Always responding with love is actually big.

  1. And now I realize that these were Julia's questions and not Lauren's. All right, slap my hand twice.

  2. No, they were my questions. No more hand slapping. I love those last two sentences of yours. Very true!

  3. I couldn't agree with you more...
