Traveling Mercies: Some thoughts on Faith by Anne Lamott
I can't begin to explain how vulnerable and exposed I have left lately. It's has if God has opened me up and pulled out my organs, examining them with His light...piece by piece... with the whole world watching. Reading this book, in this moment, has been like a breath of fresh air reminding me that my imprefections do no turn God away and that in fact it's in my weakness that he's able to do his best work! Plus there's something so freeing about reading a spiritual memior in which the main character doesn't all of a sudden get it all right the moment he/she turns to God (In fact I think the fact that Lamott is open to sharing her struggles and how she reconciles her life and faith into one, that makes me appreciate this book so much). So if you haven't read "Traveling Mercies"....I highly recommend it!
