In Which I Make a Delightful Discovery

I had much puttering to do around the house this afternoon. The Little Ones were napping and the Big 3 were doing schoolwork, so the house was quiet. I was thinking how nice it would be if Gateway to Joy were still on the radio - and on at this time slot - and wishing my Elisabeth Elliot talks were not all on worn-out cassettes hidden away in boxes b/c I no longer have a working tape player.

My Sweetie suggested I look for mp3s online and guess what? They exist! I found a website called Blue Letter Bible that has more than a dozen Elisabeth Elliot talks available for free to stream or download. Go check them out here.

The one I listened to today was called "Sulking." I was attracted to the title because it's something I never do. Har har har. It was SO good to hear the voice of my old friend again, a spiritual mother whose writings and talks have encouraged me since I was a teenage girl.

(The BLB webste, along with this one , this one, and this one, are going to come in handy as I load my iPod for some long runs ahead in prep for the half marathon in December!)

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I've been wanting to do the same thing and I love Elisabeth!

BTW, I am sooo proud of you for all your hard work and training! I can't wait to hear about your 1/2 in December! Wish I could be there cheering you on!

Cool. Thanks for sharing! I'm rereading A Chance to Die right now.
EE has many a nice turn of phrase!
