I used to harp on people for reading fiction (shocking that I would harp on anyone, I know), but not I find myself having to recant on all my foolish statements. After the 5th movie of Harry Potter which was absolutely awesome, I found myself gripped by the story. I could have sat there for another hour and a half and watched every minute of that movie. The next day, we immediate went and bought books 5 and 6 and I started reading book 5 and read 150 pages in one day, which is like a record or something! Why start on book 5 you ask? Cause the first 4 movies obviously explained everything I needed to know…
I have always teased Amber for reading them, but now she secretly thinks I was the one obsessed with them the whole time. Of course she’s wrong, but as I read these books, I’m discovering they are excellently written. She absolutely grabs you from the very beginning. It has been very refreshing to read fiction. I had often thought it was a waste of time I did not have, but now I feel like it’s worth making time for and I will have to do this more often.
One thing I did not expect was that this book stirs in me a desire to love God more. I think this happens anytime you read something discerningly, but the battle that occurs between good and evil stirs in my a passion for fighting for good and abstaining and fighting against evil.
Well, I’ve got 600 more pages to read…I’ll keep you updated with anything the Lord teaches me through it.
