Cold Tangerines.

To my surprise and delight, I was given my own copy of Cold Tangerines recently (thank you, sweet Amanda!). I devoured most of it during a pedicure the other week, and finished the rest on my lunch breaks.

As y'all know, I loved me some Bread & Wine, and am always referring to it for quotes and delicious recipes. I loved this book so much as well, and left it highlighted and bookmarked. You should definitely check it out for a funny, enlightening read on faith and living life to its fullest.

I'll leave you with some quotes I loved:

"I want my everyday to make God belly laugh, glad He gave life to someone who loves the gift, who will use it up and wring it out and drag it around like a favorite sweater."

"When we do the hard, intimate work of friendship,
we bring a little more divine into daily life."

"Today is your big  moment. Moments, really. The life you've been waiting for is happening all around you. The scene unfolding right outside your window is worth more than the most beautiful painting, and the crackers and peanut butter that you've been having for lunch on the coffee table are as profound, in their own way, as the Last Supper. This is it. This is life in all its glory, swirling and unfolding around us...pull off the mask and you will find your life, waiting to be made, chosen, woven, crafted."

"You are more than dust and bones. You are spirit and power and image of God. And you have been given today."


So, so grateful for this sweet life we have been given! There is so much to stop and take in, to enjoy, and to share with others. I hope you get a chance to read this and enjoy!

"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." 
John 10:10
