When I was talking about books to read the other day, I completely forgot to mention The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis; all seven books. They should definitely be on the list. If there were a list.

Here’s a few more off the top of my head: The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay and it’s sequel, Tandia; The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juste;, Out of Eden by John Steinbeck; Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K. Jerome; To Say nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis; and Foucault’s Pendulum by Umberto Ecco.


Pedro the Lion

from the album, Whole

The sun shines

And leaves blow

And my hope like autumn is turning brown

I know it seems like I’m always falling down

But it does not matter to me

Although it seems like it should

It’s because I know I’m understood when I hear Him say

Rest in me little David

And dry all your tears

You can lay down your armor

And have no fear

Cause I’m always here

When you’re tired of running

And I’m all the strength that you need

It’s uphill both ways

Tomorrow I swear I won’t act this way

And I know it seems like that is what I always say

You know I want to be like Jesus

But it seems so very far away

When will I learn to obey?


So tired, I am.
