Everyday Mysticism: Creative (Building) Blocks

I keep a notebook in my purse. It's one of the fancy Target ones--pink chevrons, laminated covers, wide-lined pages.

Everyday Mysticism: The Purpose-less Life

Many years ago, there was a very popular book making the rounds where I lived. It was called A Purpose-Driven Life, and every Christian woman (and many Christian men) I knew seemed to have their noses in it, soaking up every drop of wisdom from its pages.
