And God which knoweth the hearts,
bare them witness, giving them the Holy
Ghost, even as he did unto us...and put no
difference between us and them, purifying
their hearts by faith...Acts 15:8-9
I lost the Hot on my previous entry on the Book Report theme so this is another effort.
The name of the book I am showing is "Same Kind of Different As Me" It is a New York Times Bestseller and an amazing True story...By Ron Hall & Denver Moore With Lynn Vincent ...In the back of the book is a list of people who have read the story and one of them is Mrs. Barbara Bush. Here are her words:
"Denver Moore and Ron Hall's story is one that moved me to tears. The friendship that forms between these two men
at a time when both were in need is an inspiration to all of us to be more compassionate to everyone we come in contact with. This is truly a wonderful book."
I am not sure why I decided to do this SP outside in the cold today but maybe it was appropriate since this book is a true story about a homeless man, Denver Moore a modern-day slave...It is also about an International Art Dealer, Ron Hall and his wife, Deborah that bound their lives together in a most remarkable story that I have ever read.. Ron and his wife also worked in a Soup kitchen shelter to feed the homeless in Texas and this is where they met Denver..Deborah had a dream about Denver before she met him that he would become an important man in their life and he would make big changes in his life.
The book will make you laugh and it will move you to tears. I got this book from my niece, Christy, at Christmas time and I could not put it down once I started reading it..,The story is narrated by both Denver Moore and Ron Hall in their own words.
I think what I found most inspiring about the book is how the homeless man's life turned around full circle. He changed from a drifter to a man with a vision.
It spoke also of life beyond death when Ron's wife Deborah who had cancer, on her death bed visually saw and spoke with Jesus and saw angels.
