My legs, my Aunties

2 07 2008

i have my Grandmother Manchester’s legs, and I have always disliked them for their size and unwieldy existence. Until I read Sex God by Rob Bell (this second time) and Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith by Anne Lamott. I highly recommend the two. Not at the same time though – they’re quite intense and powerful, and if you read them together no doubt your head will explode from the implications of their thoughts and writings.

If we’re not content with where we are, what we have, and who we are, we’ll never be comfortable with the creation – life – and we’ll never be comfortable with the Creator of it all. So I thank God for my legs, even if they aren’t as slim, or as tanned, or as lithe, as I’d have liked them to be. They serve me well.
