This posting is going to be half book-review/recommendation and half prayer. I'm about two-thirds of the way through the book Eat, Pray, Love. It is about a young woman who spends a year in three places: Italy (eat), India (pray), and Indonesia (which I'm assuming is going to be the love piece although I haven't yet gotten that far). A really easy read with some really great lines and insights. Pieces about enjoying life, doing things that one might not ordinarily do and being okay with that, letting go, finding one's authentic self, etc. all wrapped up in a hint of sarcasm and full of real-life.
As I transition from one place to another, I lose focus easily and feel all jumbled up until I settle again. My trend has been always to fill space and time with something--it's easier that way. But, the piece from the book (God speaks in so many ways when I'm paying attention) that stuck with me last night went something like..."You cannot see your reflection in a running stream, only in a still pool." So, hopefully today will be one of moments and nows, not whens and ifs. When I am truly in the moment, very rarely is life ever anything but gift and gratitude.
