Constantly Craving by Marilyn Meberg
Everyone of us craves for something more. There is just an inborn desire in all of us that wishes things were different. It seems to be something that is in our DNA, Meberg concludes. Since she is a counselor and has two masters degrees she has a background to pull from when she writes this book. To sum up she is saying we all long for connection with some one or something. We need to know we belong..
The supreme connection is with God. Connection, she points out, brings about contentment.
The book is written in an easy conversation manner. It reaffirmed in me that my connection with God and others is important. Also I am made for a purpose. To illustrate that we all have purpose she tells the story of the ladybugs and the aphids. The ladybug is made for the purpose of eating aphids. She tells of the time she had some ladybugs who got loose from a bag and wondered aimlessly around her bathroom until released outside in the flower garden. Their purpose was not to wander the bathroom but to eat the aphids on the flowers. So we have a purpose also. We seek that purpose, she seems to be saying.
