So I feel like I got hit on the head and I must of forgotten about my blog. I noticed my last post was Nov 1 and its the 22nd today. That is uncalled for. We did go on holidays for a week of that time where I stayed away from computers for the most part. However, that is still no excuse. I even forgot to blog my daughter turning 6months old. I guess I have allowed life to take over or maybe its just being my laziness and all the tv we’ve been watching lately. Anyways, I feel like I am back now.
Recently, I just finished reading Mere Christianity, I feel that this book is so great that everyone ought to read it. CS Lewis has amazed me in many of his writings as this was the last of three of his books that I finished.
Here are some great quotes to wet your appetite to go and read this book.
“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”
“Atheism turns out to be too simple. If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning…”
“All that we call human history–money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery–[is] the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.”
“[The natural life] knows that if the spiritual life gets hold of it, all its self-centredness and self-will are going to be killed and it is ready to fight tooth and nail to avoid that.”
“Until you have given up your self to Him you will not have a real self…”
I find myself impressed with the way he describes the real self. After I just finished reading the book last night I loved the way that he describes those living according to the world as the ones who aren’t creative and the Holy New Man to be the most different. Anyways, go and get this book right now.
