The Weight of Books


Our daughter (Thanks, Liv!) and grandson (Thanks, Sean!) were gracious to help me sort and pack books from our bookshelves. Sean took opportunity to draw on boxes during down time. I noticed this drawing captured the kind of weariness I think we all felt after packing too many boxes of books (some are going away) and reminded me of Ecclesiastes 12:12. "But beyond this, my son, be warned: the writing of many books is endless, and excessive devotion to books is wearying to the body." Ecclesiastes 12:12
