Anne Lamott

My Ikea-less reality


Though I'm quite certain we're poles apart when it comes to life experiences, talent, theology, and appearance, I have a strong sense  that our hearts share space! These recent tweets of hers (Anne Lamott)  are examples of why I read her books and admire her from a distance:
  •  I think God loves what is real, esp in us. Not the stuff we've tricked out w/ cute rugs from Ikea. What's really in our hearts & minds. Wow\
  • We have a short, silent time of confession Sunday. I always say something like, “Look-I think we both know what we have on our hands here.”
I'm counting on the first - though I find it frightening and reassuring at the same time - and find her Sunday confession spot on.

  1. Our Lord knows....He sees the real in all of us. I am quite thankful for that. Feel better Sweet Lady. Let your bones heal at the rate they have to. Don't rush this time.

  2. That second one made me grin. I picture myself in a line of people and as God makes His way to me He just kind of shakes His head and pats my shoulder and maybe lets out a long sigh! :)

  5. That second quote from Ann Lamott is a beauty, funny yet profound. I read her books too.
