Reviews - What do customers think about Some Folks Feel the Rain: Others Just Get Wet?
Feeling the rain! May 1, 2000
I picked up this book because of the title. And the introduction was so inspirational that I called up two friends and read it to them. In the most simple language James W. Moore explains how to love and enjoy walking this Christian path. Through Biblical examples and the most common sense explanations SOME FOLKS FEEL THE RAIN OTHERS JUST GET WET makes you want to cheer to be alive. Moore's words are both humorist and tearful, I found myself laughing while tears of joy fell down my face. This is definitely a book that will make you feel stupid for looking down so long, dumb for not stopping to smell more roses, and overjoyed and blessed to have sense enough to pick up this book to read!
