2016 Soul-Tending Reading Stack
It always feels good to sort through
all the books in the house
and assemble those read each year.
Thanking God for allowing me
time and energy to sort through
reading material that
makes heart and soul connections.
A friend made a comment that not
all my books in this stack
were "theology" books.
I believe that some of our "theology"
thinking and thoughtfulness
is found in the everyday lives we live,
or the writings of others that make
me contemplate my ordinary life.
Some were quick reads and others
took me weeks till I turned the last page.
And then there is the stack of mystery writers
that still clamor for my attention.
At least this stack of reading
helps to balance that out a bit.
On the top of the stack is a book
that was given to me by a friend
who was cleaning out her book stacks.
a PRISONER and yet.....
by Corrie ten Boom.
Published in 1947 by Evangelical Publishers
in Toronto Canada.
An autographed copy.
Probably diminished in value by all
the pencil marks of the sale price.
$1.50 and a name and the price upped
to $2.50 on the other side of the inside cover.
Sometimes I find it just amazing
that I can hold a book in my hands
that Corrie held in her own hands.
A giant in the faith that I have long admired.
I am wondering around the house today
making stacks for the
2017 Soul-Tending Reading List.
Part of the stack is already completed-
they were on the stack for 2016.
Not bad thatI didn't get it all read in a year.
Yup- it is all process indeed.
You can check out the stacks from
previous years at the top of this blog
on the page- Soul-Tending Reading.
Do you have a stack of
Soul-Tending reading for this year?
Any suggestions of what
I need to add to my stack?
Would love to see your comments!
