“Would you tell me please, which way I ought to go from here?”
“That depends a good deal on where you want to go,” said the Cat.
“I don’t much care where-” said Alice.
“Then it doesn’t matter which way you go,” said the Cat.
“-so long as I get somewhere,” Alice added as an explanation.
“Oh, you’re sure to do that,” said the Cat, “if you only walk long enough.”
A side note in reference to where I pulled this quote…
I am reading The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. I will be writing a review of this book when complete…in a word…Awesome.
If you are a Male and have read, “Wild at Heart“, then you must read this book.
“I wish every man and woman would read this book.” is an exact quote from my review of “Wild at Heart: Discovering the Secret of a Man’s Soul” by John Eldredge…a book I also gave 5 stars. After a few weeks and upon placing my selfishness aside…I realized I would be a hypocrite if I didn’t read “Captivating: Unveiling the Mystery of a Woman’s Soul”, a book about women’s souls written by both his wife, Stasi and John. If you are a male reading this review, you have read, “Wild at Heart” and you think women should read “Wild at Heart”…then guess what? Yep, stop thinking about reading this book and read it.
After having read both books, I see, think and respond to women differently now…in a good way. I am beginning to understand why I have failed as a man in the past with my relationships with women…that one is worth giving this book 5 stars alone. Yet there is so much more in Stasi’s book.
The descriptions of the meaning of Beauty in both form and spirit will enlighten the soul. What it is…where it flows from…how we see and feel Beauty…the essence of a woman. Her husband John begins the introduction with this statement, “Now we are on holy ground.” Yep…and every male understands the power of that statement. Again, Dudes…read this book…it will help your existing relationship, help you with the one destined for you along your path and help you to relate to all women in general.
This is a full on Christian book, but do not let that stop you from purchasing it. If like me, you do not like Christianity or any religion shoved in your face unsolicited, you might approach this book with caution. That is fear welling up in your soul…I too was cautious having read “Wild at Heart”, but I love that book too. Be courageous and read the book. The authors can be at times in your face with their personal beliefs, but the message is genuine gold with a purity of spirit worth reading and taking to heart. Leave Religious preconceptions behind when you begin your journey upon these pages and discover the true Beauty of Women unveiled to you. If you are on the other end of the spectrum…a full-on, in-your-face-angry-bible-thumper…then strap yourself in, ‘cuz this book might challenge your understanding about God’s relationship with women on many levels.
A side note which bugs me…why on earth would they put John’s name first on the cover since they both state in the book that Stasi wrote most of this one? It’s an ego-artist thing with me I suppose and has nothing to do with chauvinism.
- Review: “Wild at Heart: Discovering The Secret of a Man’s Soul” (gregfrucci.com)
“There is a tide in the affairs of men
Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune.
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
On such a full sea we are now afloat;
And we must take the current when it serves,
Or lose our ventures.”
~”Julius Ceasar”, by William Shakespeare
This morning, while reading the book, “IN A PIT WITH A LION ON A SNOWY DAY” by Mark Batterson, I came across this quote from Shakespeare which can be applied to life in the present moment…a moment which is not static…a moment which flows with Time.
Opportunity comes at us in many forms frequently…perhaps daily even if considered “small”.
I heard someone say the other day, “Opportunities seem very small coming at you…and sometimes very large going away from you.”
Keeping the antennae up and charged…
