The Gift We Give to Others

Posted on October 07, 2013

“I wasn’t perfect, and I made mistakes, but I learned from them and became a better person for it. I always followed my heart. And most of all, I loved — with every ounce of my being. I guess you could say the greatest love story ever written isn’t confined to the pages of a book. It’s in our lives; and we’re the ones who write it. So that’s what life’s all about, isn’t it? Why we’re here. It has nothing to do with dollars. In fact, it’s totally free. Life’s greatest gift. And the best part is, the best part, this gift we give to others… we get it back. It’s what makes the journey so worthwhile… it’s LOVE.”

— Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love

Love Truly Defined!

Posted on September 16, 2013

★★★★★

“My kind of romance story. God knows our hearts, and provides our needs. To have the kind of love written in this book / ebook, is probably not as rare as we think. For those who actually HAVE this kind of love… treasure it! Life is but a vapor and soon passes away, as Noah teaches us throughout his story, life and love, but also as fragile as a sand dollar.” — Deborah’s Kindle
