C.S. Lewis once said we read in order to know that we are not alone.

Today's translation-- we blog in order to know we are not alone. :-)

Here's a quote my friend, Jason Upton, sent to me in response to my latest blog. It connects. It gets at what Eric is saying in his comment to the last post.

"Everything in life is designed to wound me with the realization of
the world's insufficiency, until I become so detached that I will be
able to find God alone in everything. Only then can all things bring
me joy." --Thomas Merton

Well, J.D. I'm going to have to steal that one. What an awesome thought. Thanks for sharing!

JD...thanks for your translation of C.S. Lewis' quote. That helps...I've been on a search to figure out why I should blog. I have so much to spill out but teeter with my own pride in doing so. I'll keep reading and you might even see something on my blog one day!

JohnDeere,

We write, and paint, and blog, and sculpt, and compose because it is the the foundation of what it means to be created in the image of God.
