Insert obligatory yeah, I’ve been away from the blog explanation here. Let’s all move on now, shall we?
The fantastic children’s minister at one of our churches hosted a program for parents about faith at home. It was great, but not really the focus of this post. She made an off-hand remark that when she goes to the library, she grabs a bunch of picture books to find ones she really likes for work and home. Then she read one of them to us. When was the last time you sat in a room of adults listening to a picture book being read? It’s fantastic.
Earlier this summer, we found a book at the library for Bliss that I just loved. Its about gifts and talents and getting confused about where our gifts are held. I ended up reading it during a sermon at church.
So, I’m taking at least some of the children’s minister’s advice, and starting to grab a stack of books at the library. When I find ones I like – good stories, possible metaphors, and hopefully beautiful pictures – I plan to put them here. Easy retrieval and all. Enjoy!
