The first email I read this morning was from my sister (in-law) Kathie with the title of this blog. She got me going on The Writer’s Almanac; she listens to it on the radio, and I read mine by email. Occasionally we compare reactions to the day’s entry.
Today, November 29, is the birthday of C.S. Lewis, of Louisa May Alcott and of Madeleine L’Engle.
Curious, isn’t it, that only twenty years separate Lewis and L’Engle. I think of her as contemporary and of him as modern classic.
What an interesting juxtaposition: Bunyan’s conversion experience – his burden fell off after years of study, prayer, torment and doubt – and Lewis who left for the zoo an unbeliever and came back home a believer. God works in mysterious ways, eh?
We really ought to celebrate today. Let’s do a meme! Answer in the comments, or copy the questions into your own blog and leave a link. If you don’t have time, just pick one question.
