Do you know what
Language God speaks?
God speaks Every-Language.
That's because God made
Everyone and gave
Everyone different languages.
And, God understands all of them.
And, do you know what is God's

I have this book and I read it to feel better. It is my ONE go-to book that makes me laugh and cry and helps me put things into perspective.
It's easy to read therapy for the heart and soul.
This book is filled with incredibly inspirational and beautiful poetry written my a little boy in a wheel chair with Muscular Dystrophy, Mattie J.T. Stepanek. I first saw him on Oprah and was completely mesmerized by his outlook and wisdom considering all he had been through. He was wise and kind beyond his years.

I can't imagine what Mattie must have gone through but clearly his purpose was to touch millions of people's lives by leaving a profound impression on them, as he did with me. He was the best little role model. If you haven't read any of Mattie's poetry, you really should:
I can only hope such greatness and understanding will come someday from our little Doodle Bug and his journey.
