*After the last few busy days trying to catch up on all the sewing projects I had lined up, I feel like I accomplished very little today. I did read a book from start to finish though. Granted it was short as most of Paulo Coelho's are, but it was still a really awesome read, as most of his books are (IMO). Every book of his that I've read focuses a lot on God, magic, and the Mysteries of life and love... and just well... THE mysteries. I won't go into my personal beliefs here as I tend to keep that sort of banter for personal conversations and not blog world, but I will say that I really like how Coelho manages to make God a universal power/person that anyone of any religion could relate to, and allows for anyone to walk away from his books with something. Even if it's nothing more than the appreciation of a really good story told in a really great way.
*Read a really awesome quote in that book (Brida), that has made it into my journal of random things and sayings and so forth that I like:
"Sometimes, certain of God's blessings arrive by shattering all the windows" ~Paulo Coelho in Brida
*Know what makes a really great ending to any day, no matter how much was accomplished?
