Sunday, once again. I used to consider myself an active member of my church. As a matter of fact, I still consider myself as such. However, the last few months have seen my activity reduced to the point where I rarely even attend services. This is a result of being so often physically unable to do anything more strenuous than get out of bed in the mornings – sometimes not even extending to getting dressed. Regardless of the cause, I feel the lack in my life. The church has always been a source of friendship, strength, and comfort to me. I miss that fellowship, the contact with others of faith. And here I am, staying home again.
I have added a new box to the sidebar – a listing of recently read books. Please feel free to comment on these and to suggest others that you have read. I find reading preferable to spending mindless hours in front of the tv. I enjoy discussing books and ideas with others. I dropped in an a site this morning that had posted Poe’s “The Raven” for halloween. It’s been many years since I had read that piece. I enjoyed it very much. I love Poe’s use of words and rhythm to evoke a mood in that poem. What a wonderful mastery of language and emotion!
