The Greek philosopher Heraclitus once said “There is nothing permanent except change.”
I disagree with him on one point, since there is someone we can always count on to be invariable– as Hebrews 13:8 puts it, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.”
I’m a little more inconsistent, however, and as I’ve been slowly building this blog I’ve also been learning a little bit about what works (and doesn’t) for me. As a result, I’ve decided to retire Turn Back the Page Thursdays. Hopefully that isn’t too disappointing, but I’ve found that scouring the internet for photos that are old, interesting, and also not protected by copyright is a lot more time intensive than I thought it would be. It doesn’t really build the blog long term in any way, and I’m starting to feel as if it doesn’t fit very well with the overall theme of book reviews.
Moving forward, I’ll be able to spend this freed-up time reading, acquiring, and photographing more books and writing reviews as well as other book-related posts, so please look forward to continued Monday content!
P.S. Don’t forget to enter the book giveaway going on this week if you haven’t already! 🙂 Details in previous post.
“But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.” ~2 Peter 3:8-9
Some things never change. As much as I don’t want summer to come to a close, I’m excited about two weeks of fair time this August and our yearly camper vacation. I’ve been saving as much work leave as I can so I can revel in deep-fried oreos, see old friends, and feel sentimental. Although I really don’t miss last minute hose washings… 😉
Romans 8:38-39 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
