It's A Wonderful Life

Do you ever stop and think.... 

I have a wonderful life......

Sure, life doesn't always go the way we plan... Do you drive a car? Do you have a warm place to sleep at night? Is your belly full of food? Do you some money in the bank account? Do you have a place where you can worship freely? Are you a female who works or stays at home with your family? Are you allowed to vote? Do you have a job? Are there people in your life who love and care for you???

If you responded  Yes to any of these questions you are richer than most. Not by just monetary value, but you're blessed beyond measure. So often we forget how blessed we are. We go through the day comparing about what we don't have and forgetting about what we do have. We forget the rest of the world DOESN'T live the way we do! The rest of the world doesn't have the same FREEDOMS we do! 

Speaking of having a wonderful life, have you have ever seen the Christmas Movie  "It's a Wonderful Life?" 

Is Christmas not the same without seeing this movie or taking a visit to Bedford Falls for Christmas? The movie goes beyond just the holiday tradition and instead offers reflection of how people can be at the best times and the worst times in their lives.  If you've seen the movie, you know of George and Mary Bailey. If you know of their character, then you know the themes that make up this movie..
52 Little Lessons from It's a Wonderful Life
Well how would you like to learn 52 Life lessons from the movie??

Author Bob Welch offers 52 lessons on faith, humility, spirituality, being kind to one another and finding value in life. The book contains historical film facts and has spiritual references. It has several quotes from the movies and the book is meant to be read a chapter a week for 52 weeks.

This book would be a cute gift book for someone who loves "It's a Wonderful Life." This is a book I would not buy in the store for myself, but could be great for the movie lover!

Thanks to booksneeze for allowing me to review this book. The oponions expressed are my own!
