In God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life’s Little Detours newspaper columnist Regina Brett devotes a short essay to each of fifty pearls of wisdom gained through the unexpected curves life’s thrown her. From single motherhood at 21 to marriage at 40 to battling cancer at 41 she’s learned that life can change in the blink of an eye and every so-called disaster can be kept in perspective by asking, “In five years, will this matter?” Beginning with lesson 1: “Life’s not fair, but it’s still good,” the essays offer practical advice on finances, “Start saving ten percent for retirement as soon as you get your first paycheck,” relationships, “If a relationship has to be kept secret, you shouldn’t be in it,” and life in general, “When in doubt, just take the next right step.” Each essay is sprinkled with illustrative anecdotes from the author’s life and spiritual journey; “It’s okay to get angry with God. He can take it.” Many contain common sense advice that rings true no matter your faith. Having reached that milestone birthday, one of my favorite chapters included 50 things to do when you turn 50. This inspirational title is also available as a book on CD or downloadable audio file.
