This is a quote from "The Great Divorce" by C.S. Lewis. This was a short book but not a quick read by any means. It was one of those books that kept me rereading the passages so as not to miss any of the meaning and symbolism contained within. Heck, I spent a couple of hours just pondering on the one line I quoted above. I have a feeling that it is one of those books to which I will return often and leave each time with a new idea or thought to chew on and ponder. I find myself often returning to "Mere Christianity" in the same way. I can't believe that I had not read this book before now but perhaps the time wasn't right yet so the Lord did not bring it to my attention until I had grown a bit more in my faith.
I will be sharing this book with the people who link up at Thrive at Home on Thursday. I have a feeling they would enjoy this book as I did.
I have now started reading "Major Pettigrew's Last Stand" by Helen Simonson. I will let you know what I think.
