“Little Gabriel Sat on a Shelf”: a lovely story about a kid who tries to seek a fulfilling adventure of helping others and finding purpose. “Little Gabriel Sat on a Shelf” is the creation of published author Wendeline Murray Cargo, a certified therapeutic recreation specialist (CTRS). She has worked in psychiatric and physical rehabilitation centers as well as school systems, community-based programs, and independent practices for the past three decades.

Cargo shares, “Gabriel, like most children, has a very creative imagination. One day, when he was bored, he decided to use his imagination to experience many grand adventures. He had fun at first but then realized that there must be more to life than just choosing to spend his time on activities that were not fulfilling and rewarding. He decided that it might be important to seek God about what he should do with his time, realizing that God always knows best. When he finally asked God, his life began to have more meaning and purpose, and the adventures began to benefit others in the process.

“This book is based on Bible passages out of Isaiah 58:7–12, 14 (New Living Translation)

“‘No, this is the kind of fasting I want: Free those who are wrongly imprisoned; lighten the burden of those who work for you. Let the oppressed go free, and remove the chains that bind people. Share your food with the hungry, and give shelter to the homeless. Give clothes to those who need them, and do not hide from relatives who need your help. Then your salvation will come like the dawn, and your wounds will quickly heal. Your godliness will lead you forward, and the glory of the Lord will protect you from behind. Then when you call, the Lord will answer. ‘Yes, I am here,’ He will quickly reply. Remove the heavy yoke of oppression. Stop pointing your finger and speaking vicious rumors! Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon. The Lord will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring. Some of you will rebuild the deserted ruins of your cities. Then you will be known as a rebuilder of walls and a restorer of homes…Then the Lord will be your delight. I will give you great honor and satisfy you with the inheritance I promised to your ancestor Jacob. I, the Lord, have spoken!’”
