Day 19 of The Giving of Thanks
Lots and lots of books and for the authors who write them and for times and days to read them. For shelves to hold them and for LOVE who built those shelves. For notes taken on the pages of a few, and for underlinings in yellow, blue, green, or pink and completion dates logged at the end. The gift of reading. Let us not take it for granted.

Acts 28:23 (AMP) 23 When they had set a day for Paul, they came to his lodging in large numbers.
