No man can be called friendless who has God and the companionship of good books.  
--Elizabeth Barrett Browning


  1. God is first always. After Him, books are very important. They give us a certain companionship. We almost fall into the pages that we read. We become absorbed into the lives of the characters that live inside of the books. Therefore, we must be careful in choosing "good" books instead of mediocre ones. If we fill our minds with the good stuff, even our loneliness begins to disappear.

    The little girl in the picture is so precious. That is exactly when a love of books should begin -- in early childhood.

  2. Spellbinding! I love Elizabeth Barrett Browning. "And sees within my eyes, the tears of two." She speaks what's on our minds, whether we know it or not.

  3. Thank God for the Bible's great book, which has remained over time.
    My first friends were the heroes of the Bible. Men and women whose lives were registered to teach us timeless truths
    I love books, but friendship is something that can not be bought.
    One of the things I like is to browse over and over again my books. Perhaps, one day will come when the book printed on paper, is replaced by the virtual book

  4. cclaridad, that is precisely my sadness. I think you are right. The printed book on paper is becoming obsolete. It is a great sadness to me. There is such joy in holding a book and turning the paper pages. It is not the same clicking a button on an e-reader!

  5. Dear friends, your comments are all so beautiful! I am grateful to each of you for taking the time to write such lovely and wise thoughts. You bring so much joy to my day, and I pray that Almighty God will bless you all
