What Color Is Your Wallpaper? by Steven C. Macon
About the Author:
Steven C. Macon was born in North Carolina, but spent most of his adult life in the sunny state of Florida. While attending college Steven was involved with many of the campus newspapers and magazines. He worked for a short season as a circus clown and puppeteer. There was another period in his life where Steven spent time jumping out of airplanes for fun. He obtained a Master Skydivers rating while a member of the US Parachute Association. Steven also participated in community theater. One of his major accomplishments was backpacking Yosemite. His hobbies include photography and likes to dabble with painting landscapes, still-life’s and various other sundry subjects. Steven and his wife, Debra, now reside in southwestern Virginia with their four cats.

I received this book as a recommendation from my brother-in-law who is a good friend of the author. I appreciate that and the chance to read something by this author - I am a big fan!
This book screams wisdom and pay attention to the little things! While I was reading Macon's book, I felt like I was sitting beside an old friend...someone who has been around the block, realized what's important, and then wants to share that wisdom and those life lessons with me.
The whole premise behind the book is look around you...pay attention to what you're missing. While we are so caught up in "life" and our image, our appearance to others, there is a whole world right around us that is so much more important.
Macon is obviously a Christian and he imparts much of that simple knowledge that we can gain from living in faith and living by the bible on us in this book. It is packed with verses that support his life lessons and it takes you a step further than just reading - it fills you up spiritually and enriches the reading experience by bringing the knowledge right into your lap.
Let me share one of my favorite excerpts from this book:
This book makes you stop...and think. And if you're like me, you need that reminder to slow down every now and then because when we get to the end, we want to remember not to wonder.
