I didn’t have a chance to get this up this morning so think of it as weekend journaling!
I’ve talked about how much I love non-fiction and memoirs….I thought I’d start sharing what I’ve been reading. And recommendations are always welcomed!
Bittersweet by Shauna Niequist
Cold Tangerines by Shauna Niequist
A friend sent me these books by Shauna Niequist. I love every essay…..I felt like Shauna was writing down things that were in my head! Both are beautiful collections of stories about spiritual life and navigating through this life…..
I’ve learned the hard way that change is one of God’s greatest gifts, and most useful tools. Change can push us, pull us, rebuke and remake us. It can show us who we’ve become, in the worst ways, and also in the best ways. I’ve learned that it’s not something to run away from, as though we could, and that in many cases, change is a function of God’s graciousness, not life’s cruelty. -Shauna Niequist
