Common Sense REBORN Devotion

October 26

It begins to look as if we shall have to admit that there is more than one kind of reality; that, in this particular case, there is something above and beyond the ordinary facts of men’s behaviour, and yet quite definitely real-a real law, which none of us made, but which we find pressing on us.  (C.S. Lewis, “Mere Christianity” pg 20)

Happy Wednesday friends.  I have been trying to sit down and prepare a post for y’all for these last two weeks.  Our household is under the unbreakable power of a two-month old princess that dictates our time.  She is ruthless.  Mrs. Z and I have been battling for freedom to accomplish great works, but Princess SGZ3 has total reign of the household.  I have included a picture of her, using her irresistible powers of cuteness and cuddles to take away all of our free time.

I have been able to continue to read C.S. Lewis’ work, “Mere Christianity”.  I am about two-thirds of the way through the book.  It ranges from moments of brilliance, to stretches of boredom.  But I do see the absolute importance of this work.  Here was one of the most accomplished authors of his time, a proclaimed atheist who lived a full life and found Christ in the midst of one of the most atrocious wars fought between men.  So Lewis’ words hold great weight and importance, and there are wonderful nuggets hidden within its pages.  If you have never read the work, I still highly recommend it.  It is an easy read.  The chapters are short.  I have worked it into my morning routine to read a chapter before heading off to work every day.  And princess SGZ3 allows me to read to her while providing her rocking service.  The above lines come from Lewis’ presentation that most men and women follow a moral law, and he presents the argument between a natural law and the Christian law, and where each comes from.

While I have been wanting to share more from this work, what I really miss by not posting on here more frequently is sharing all the amazing music that has been released lately.  There is a lot to cover, and I will try to share a slew of them tomorrow, as I think (no promises) that I will be able to put something out in the morning.  But for today, I was very excited that Mr. Matt Maher released his newest album on Friday.  It is a wonderful collection, including my new favorite from him, “The Stories I Tell Myself”, which is also the title track to the album.  Click here to preview the entire album.  Below is one of the many amazing songs to come off this 20-track set.
