Matchmaker, Matchmaker. Make Me a Match!

My husband loves to read and  collect books. Over our married life, I have enjoyed watching him immerse himself in various authors--Warren Wiersbe, Billy Graham, Charles Stanley, Fulton J. Sheen and most recently, Oliver B. Greene and G. Campbell Morgan. Although some have gone on to be with the Lord  they loved and served, they live on here as well as in heaven, but through their written works. The outpouring of their faith continues to inspire.

We have a family friend who delights in finding homes for books where they will be cherished.In fact, she thinks of herself as a bit of a "matchmaker."  She has blessed us over the years with these treasures, always finding the perfect book.   This past week, she gave Hubby a lovely early-20th Century collection of G. Campbell Morgan's works. He is so happy! I hear the voices of these great men of God in my husband's sermons.
