The best book is the Bible. It’s words show us Jesus. It convicts and teaches and restores our soul. The more I read of it, the more I want to read.
Yet there are times I relish leisure. a fun story. a researched historical novel. a good mystery.
and other times, I like to study a subject. I enjoy finding out what influenced good men. what influenced the bad. how times changed-and why.
If God had not given us language, we could not read His Story. 
or have leisure reading. 
or be able to learn of the past 
[without the aid of a human teacher]. 
I enjoy a good conversation. sharing burdens and triumphs. reminding others of His love through the circumstances. finding out how God has blessed. sharing with others of His love through Jesus’ death.
So today, I am thankful for language. 
the ability to read. 
to communicate.
for the Thankful Challenge link-up!

Tomorrow, I will share what we have done as a family during this Thanksgiving season. and how we are carrying it through until Christmas!
