Rereading Good Books
On the rereading of good books, and especially for Brenda:
“I savor remembered details, greet favorite scenes or sections with pleasure, wonder why I turned up the corner (my bad habit for marking special pages) or recall the reasons why a pencil line or exclamation mark was left. There is coziness, friendliness and reassurance in rereading beloved books and poems, the repetition of which is a welcome counterpoint to the sometimes more fraught and unpredictable nature of real life.”Jane BrocketThe Gentle Art of Domesticitypage 26
I couldn’t agree more. Have a blessed Lord’s Day and Mother’s Day!
God bless you as you look well to the ways of your household!
