it’s a flannery kinda morning

When a book leaves your hands, it belongs to God. He may use it to save a few souls or to try a few others, but I think that for the writer to worry is to take over God’s business.

  1. “The pen is mightier…” Yes – always responsible for what we write, seriously. I wait, pray for clarity, do not worry – but take responsibility. As an ‘elder of the tribe’? Even more 🙂 Then I let go – let God – move to the NOW – pray for clarity – thank God for my free will & take responsibility – ALWAYS 😉

  2. Doesn’t this apply to book giving also? As in when you give someone a book that has changed your life a little,and just ask them to re-gift the book to someone they think also need to read it. The Domestic Church springs to mind here.
