A worn book that still is an encouragement

I love how the Lord gives each of our children different strengths, gifts and traits.  I am so blessed by each of them!

My Elisabeth is very traditional and classic.  She has always loved to read and has enjoyed collecting old books. 

 Not too long ago, she came to me with a recent book she had read that someone had given her.  The title is "Quiet Talks on Prayer" by S. D. Gordon.  The copyright is 1904. She said that even though it is worn and the pages are yellowed, it was such a blessing to her!  I don't know about you, but I don't know many 18 year olds that read books that old on prayer.  What a treasure my Beth is!

 So, guess what is next up on my reading list?
