Friday Pix: Recommended Reading For The Weekend

This Friday I point you to some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. There’s another great essay over at the New York Times Modern Love column, this time by Stacy Morrison. It’s about a divorced couple who still spends a lot of time together.

2. And speaking of marriage, Book Snob (aka Katy Keim) tells us what her nightstand says about her marriage.

3. And speaking of book snobs, test out your knowledge of book review clichés with Michelle Kerns over on The Examiner. (Hat Tip: Salon’s Laura Miller.)

4. You’ll also want to check out the inside of some of David Foster Wallace’s books, on display at The University of Texas Harry Ransom Center. (Hat Tip: Kristin Bair O’Keeffe.) Wow!

5. I was intrigued by this article in the Boston Globe by Laurel Snyder about fairy tales and American childhood. (Hat Tip: @lizzieskurnick.)

6. Finally, my new favorite writers’ website: Beyond The Margins. Check it out!

Oh yes. And please do follow me on Twitter!

    Hello Delia! I truly enjoyed your article. I found it to be truly inspiring and gave me a little insight into the initial glimpse-like view of a non-practicing Jew. Thank you for being honest and frank with me about your religious upbringing and everyday struggles with religious practices. I, too, am not c currently attending any church because I’m a bit fed up with the inside of the many buildings being more polluted, IMHO, than outside its walls. But, it is my personal conviction that if one were to start with the laws and foundational beliefs of Judaism and consider accepting Jesus Christ as the Messiah that has come and saved all of us from our sins through faith in Him, then this is the beginning of true wisdom. In this, there is just one true God. Yet, the mystery is that God is a triune being; the holy trinity being the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God in the man-form of Jesus gives us a physical view of God’s overwhelming love for mankind. I believe Jesus wants everyone to come to know His saving grace and have a personal relationship that grows daily via the avenue of prayer and listening. Jesus is alive today and although I have not a single clue what God will do in the future, I hold onto the hope that He cares for everyone equally and one day we will all be free from this sin nature that holds us back from all of God’s goodness, grace and glory. My hope and prayer is that Jesus will become real to all those that seek Him and that many will call upon His name to be saved. The one and only true and living God is so powerful, real and omni-present. I love God so much that it overflows and that’s why I can’t help but declare all His works and give Him the praise, glory and credit continuously as long as I live, breathe and have my being. May you, your husband and family find the perfect peace (“shalom”) that you have been longing for and seeking in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior. May His saving grace fill your heart with hope once again for a better tomorrow. Love, Rose
