But I really really loved it It was exactly what I needed to er This world could definitely use mercy and kindness I generally read anything this author writes but even if I didn t the title in this one made it a must read This world needs mercy and compassion it is I feel sorely lacking Although I found this offering scattered less concentrated than er usual works some of what she talks about just seems like common sense there are as always phrases and thoughts that amaze One of the things that I like about Lamott is that even though she uotes that I like about Lamott is that even though she uotes bible often she also admits that it is not as easy in every day life to practice everything it teaches We are Wilhelm Van Gloeden human and as she admits sheas thoughts that are contrary to Samotny rejs OPTY how she wants to feel behave I loved this thought Everything slows down when we listen and stop trying to fix the unfixable We end up looking into other people s eyes and see the desperation or let them see ours This connection slips past the armor like water past stones Being slow and softened even for a few minutes or seconds gives sneaky grace the chance to enter This is easy to remember that by just listening we may be ofelp show a form of mercyA nice thoughtful book about ways to show mercy caring and love not easy at times but something of limitless value What does the Lord reuire of you but to do justice and to love kindness and to walk umbly with your God Micah 68 I came into this world with mercy for nearly everyone everywhere and for all cats and dogs at the pound Mercy is radical kindness Mercy means offering or being offered aid in desperate straits Mercy is not deserved It involves absolving the unabsolvable forgiving the unforgiveable Mercy brings us to the miracle of apology given and accepted to unashamed umility when we Omega Beloved - Reimagined have erred or forgotten Charge it to oureads and not our The Nalco Guide to Boiler Failure Analysis hearts as the elders in black churchesave long said Mercy grace forgiveness and compassion are synonyms and the approaches we might consider taking when facing a great big mess especially the great big mess of ourselves our arrogance greed poverty disease prejudice It includes everything out there that just makes us sick and makes us want to turn away the idea of accepting life as it presents itself and doing goodness anyway the belief that love and caring are marbled even into the worst life Who Is Esau Edom? has to offer Kindness toward others and radical kindness to ourselves buy us a shot at a warm and generouseart which is the greatest prize of all Do you want this or do you want to be right Well can I get back to you on that Unfailingly Weeds Among the Wheat Discernment Where Prayer and Action Meet honest simple thoughts sanding down the sharper edges withumour on a topic which would imply a serious nature If there s one thing I ve found through the past years by beginning each year by reading something new to me by Anne Lamott er words never

For me Anne Lamott s nonfiction books on living in faith and I don t mean denominational Faith are not individual volumes but one continuing narrative I mean this as a compliment True some books are slighter than others either literally or figuratively but all are needed and welcome If you re a uman being who struggles with everything from trying to make sense of the current political environment to envying your girlfriend who unlike you doesn t ave to contend with an arthritic ip Anne Lamott is the friend who listens an arthritic Lest Darkness Fall and Related Stories hip Anne Lamott is the friend who listens eats ice cream with you and then suggests you go for a walk together to lubricate thatip Maybe next week you ll talk about organizing that letter writing campaign for immigration reform or maybe not but knowing that you re in the muck together makes the struggle easier And from time to time when you do something that The Body Scoop for Girls helps or strengthens you or someone else you know that it s because you and your friend and others likeer are members of the same club trying mostly failing but sometimes succeeding to experience and share moments of grace 25 I ve read all of Lamott s nonfiction and am uite fond of er rambly theological memoirs Although this is probably one of er two weakest books FREE AUDIOBOOKS 01 How to download Free AUDIO BOOKS MP3 File Human Read or Computer Generated TKP 0027 her fans will want to read it anyway The overall theme is a bit loose and the personal anecdotes seem tired andor thin on the ground especially in the early chapters she argues wither son about an unwise comment she made about a transgender person she tries to resist buying an expensive sweater which mostly The Art and Making of The Expanse hold forth on the struggles of a generic you or we Chapters 3 and 7 areighlights though and eventually she starts drawing in apposite stories like one about a trip to Japan and another about Insurgence helping with the funeral for a man who committed suicide But in general I think this pales in comparison wither best books and boy did she miss an opportunity to turn
