I guess I don’t have to tell you all that things are a little gloomy out there right now, what with the economy melting down and all. People are having a tough time. I know I’ve been awake a lot at four in the morning, staring at the ceiling, running numbers in my head.
If you’re feeling a little like this, First Comes Love is a perfect read. For one thing, it’s funny. Laugh-out-loud funny, and I think we could all use some of those right now. And, hey, if you’re awake at four AM, you might as well read instead of worry.
The biggest reason Eve’s book is so relevent for right now, though, is that it will help put things in perspective, but not in a holier-than-thou kind of way. Instead, you’ll feel empowered. “Hey,” you’ll think, “Eve was pretty resourceful in Uganda. She learned to cope with limited resources. She even learned to make yoghurt in a sleeping bag. Maybe if push comes to shove, I could handle it, too.”
So much of the world lives with so very little. We’re so lucky we have our books, and our computers, and all the little, nonsensical things that get us through our days. But in the end, the best thing about First Comes Love is that it will remind you that love is what it’s all about in this life. The world is wide, but it’s also a village. We’re all connected. Eve’s pursuit of St. John led her to a much, much bigger love story, and it’s one we’re all invited to.
