Tea Leaves, Again


 

Daily Prompt: Second Time Around

Tell us about a book you can read again and again without getting bored — what is it that speaks to you?

There are a few books I have read more that once but three are really the most important for me to have as necessary. Although I struggle with reading the bible every day it is always next to my desk. I have two books that sometimes when I am struggling in life I reach for one is  Tea Leaves which is a Devotional Meditations for Women, although I have not been reading it for years but still have it. I think it was more important and relevant when I had young children and my husband was gone for months on duty.

Today when I went to find it because I actually was not sure of the title I  ended up reading Self-Pity Justifiable  which suggests reading Psalm 40 1-8.

Another book I have on book shelf is Man’s Search for Meaning. Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl’s memoir has lesson for life. Life is not fair and we much learn to cope with it,  move on and hopefully find meaning. At one time I let someone borrow the book and she did not return it so I purchased another copy but you can download at Internet Archive  now since it has a Creative Commons license.

 ‘When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.’

I really believe everyone should read the book. 

A lot of my books I read over are for animal and garden reference and I will only reread parts of the book but I grab them a few times per year.
