Not a new lesson, and not original, but a good one nonetheless: Favorite books truly are like old friends, where the friendship picks right up when you meet again, no matter if days or years have gone by since you last met.
This week I've been renewing my friendship with Emily of New Moon, by L. M. Montgomery (of Anne of Green Gables fame). It remains a favorite year after year, and as I get older, I find more depth and meaning in it than I did as a child. I feel a true kinship with little Emily Byrd Starr, and am so thankful for Ms. Montgomery's talent and words. What books are like old friends to you?
