waiting for a sign? this may be it.

You all know that I'm mildly vulgar, and I'm not super into organized religion. However, I DO believe in Jesus, we simply have an understanding between the two of us. That being said, I think that all of you Jesus lovers and acquaintances can benefit form Clare De Graaf's The 10 Second Rule: Following Jesus Made Simple.

Whether you believe in God, or some other higher power, I think that we can all agree that we have a calling in life. Something, somewhere, drives us into certain directions. We can spend a lot of energy fighting it, and continue to do our own thing, or we can give in to whatever we are meant to do. De Graaf's tiny book packs a punch. He offers first hand advice on listening to the voice of God, obeying (I hate that word, let's just call it "agreeing with") His decisions, and trusting in Him to take you where you are supposed to go.

The main idea is to be a good person: do things for those who don't deserve it, LOVE those who are the most difficult to love. At the end of the day, being a good person has nothing to do with your religion, it has to do with the greater good, and God knows, we could all use some more good in our country.
