Day 220

Finished another book. Not quite so important as the last one I blogged, yet important and distinct none the less. As I read this book, I was challenged by the author’s drive to seek devotion, to seek healing, and to seek balance. Although I was challenged by the author, I was not inspired to copy or follow her. Instead I contemplated the author’s journey making note of the things she did well, the things that are similar to my own, and the things that she gained through different disciplines, and now I am ready to articulate for the world my own journey. As I read, I was motivated to learn myself, giving attention to the areas of my mind and heart that I so often ignore for the sake of “making it through the day.” Also, I was motivated to be more disciplined in my pursuit of God, to take on new activities of devotion to Him, and to write about it.

Let me be the first to introduce you to a new amateur author – myself. I’ve started writing something real and I’m going to go for it. I hope to interview this author someday, and tell her about my saving faith. But for now, I’m okay with praying for her.
So, the book was Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. Do you think I should go see the movie? Hmm…

Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia

One thought on “Day 220

  1. Ben and I listened to this on audio cd a few years back when we were painting the house. I agree, not something to model your life after, but an interesting life journey none the less. And it helped us stay up into the wee hours of the morning to get the job done!
