Eating Leaves

The tree leaves turn bright,
fall, and return to the ground—
feed what once fed them.

Book pages are turned,
words rising from each new leaf,
to feed the reader.

A Blessing for You

Whether we’re reading Scripture or reading books of fiction or nonfiction, we’re nourishing ourselves by the words we take in. Reading really is feeding.

I’d like to say a blessing over you:

May you be blessed by every word of Scripture you read. And may God guide you to any book, fiction or nonfiction, that he wants to work through to encourage you, strengthen you, bring you joy, and help you to know him and his love.

May you be filled with courage, healing, inspiration, and with every good thing that our good God delights to pour out on his people. Amen.
