…and the nite did go very very slowly…. no sleep again yet one more time… hoping for a breakthrough tonight…. I feel mostly like I’m just plain old tired! 🙂
Was very excited yesterday, when Ellen came back from the Lake Cottage with my 40 year old copy of “Don’t Waste Your Sorrows”. The timing for this is pretty good what with all that is happening and all that is not happening right now. If I can wake up enough tomorrow to focus, I may just get started… I expect to discover a whole bunch of neat things. When I first read this book I was a totally different person than I am today.
40 years is a long time … with thousands more of experiences with the Lord where He has changed me year after year after year… I went thru this kind of thing when Bodie re-introduced me to T. Austin Sparks... one of my “Deeper Life” authors… way back in the beginning of the bookstore.. Sparks was part of the reason we incorporated a 501c3 non-profit as Deeper Life, Inc. Then Bodie helped me get rid of those old religious glasses I always wore… and I looked at the same words… words I had been so totally excited about back in 1969… and they meant something completely different today…. and next year…. and….
I said a little about the book the other day… on July 8th… so… this is going to be fun talking about the differences between then and now as I work my way thru the book…. Hope you will enjoy taking this little journey with me… as I walk back thru the last 40 years…
