Meeting an Old Friend
| Those who like to
read will readily understand these few comments. I have been blessed to
have a reasonably adequate library during my years of preaching the
gospel. There are many books that line my shelves. I suppose I should
dispose of some of them but every time I decide to do that I change my
mind because I really like to read and reread my books.
Most of them I have read and marked and underlined throughout. Some don't treat their books that way but I did and do. So many I read for the first time many years ago. Time has slipped by so swiftly it seems. Now and again I look over my books and rediscover one I had not read for sometime. I take it down and start reading. It is like meeting an old friend because of the great themes discussed. (Nearly all my books have to do with Christianity, etc.) The genuine thrill thinking of the truth they present is so enjoyable. I would think you may have some books like these also.
