“Blue Birds and Good Books – Terrific”

         A “Blue Bird” with a Message!

The other day I started reading – “The Prayer of Jabez”   Devotional Book. I first received this book as a gift with another book written by   “Bruce Wilkinson” in July  of 2006.

Good books are like good movies that you can read and  watch  more times than you can count.  Like they say about movies  – the first time you watch a movie   – you just do not see half of what you thought you saw   –  and maybe  half of the movie did  not make sense and you need to see it again and again.  That is  so   – with life – you really need and  want to  know  – what it was –  that you enjoyed so well?

The same goes for books, at least   with me.  Some books I have to have  – in near by places  – so that I know when I need special uplifting and encouragement   –   and just to be  mentally refreshed  –  I have the right   book  – right there  –  the  best  reading material  –  as handy as it can be!

Today  – as I was reading   “Day  18”   – ‘Power with Purpose’    –  the line… ‘If you want to see the promise in action’,    right then a  “blue bird”   hit the picture window with a dull thud  –   down… but for a moment  –  unconscious   –  regained momentum  – landing on the near by porch rail!  She looked at me and  had a look  –  as if asking me   “why can’t…   I come inside there with you?”   I was asking  her  –  “are you alright?”   When  “she”  the bird – was confident of flying…  off  “she” went.  Such an earth shaking  mood  to put me in –  as  I was reading…  “If you want to see…”    so… “is that an immediate answer  to something   or not?”

Anyway  – I now have plenty of ‘food for thought’. I just love getting so “inspired ” as I read.  Try reading this book if you have  it,   again  –   and if not,  the library will have a copy.  But,  I like my own books as I have to write in them as I go along,  and  that is…   for the next generation to read and…  think about  as to what it  was that I  may have been thinking about  at that point in time … about the material and what was the difference  – – a change in LIFE or what?

Good books are the best of companions and always so close by  and  best of all  –  so  inspiring!     D.V.
