A few years ago, my friend Lindsay introduced me to the first book I've ever read in one sitting: Cold Tangerines. I think I've probably read this book a good five times. Shauna Niequist is a brilliant writer--raw and encouraging. She recently came out with another book- Bittersweet: thoughts on change, grace, and learning the hard way. I practically grabbed it out of the UPS man's hands when he came to the door. I can't put it down. My bible study is going through this book, discussing a few chapters at a time. I feel like I'm cheating, but I can't help myself. I have to finish the whole thing.
- "Change is not a function of life's cruelty but instead a function of God's graciousness"
- "Grace is when you finally stop keeping score and when you realize that God never was, that his game is a different one entirely."
