Where’s Your Treasure?

7 Oct

Grandfather taught me at an early age the treasure of reading. There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates loot on Treasure Island he said. Going to an AYOP school I was able to read just about everything available. I always had my nose in a book while growing up. I read the Bible three times by age twelve.

When we left the reservation, I continued to read. Mom purchased a set of The World Book Encyclopedia for the family and I read every one of them from cover to cover. I love to read. With an IQ slightly above average, 175, I was able to complete classes at school with little or no problem.

The treasure I found in books has been pivotal in my life and I still love to read about everything I can get my hands on. I literally read about six books a month, Barnes and Noble loves me. To me there is no better way to spend my spare time.

I think reading opens your world to the wonders going on around you. The real treasures and experiences in life can be found in a book. Grandfather says we don’t have time to experience everything there is in life, we need to share the experiences of others through books. I guess you can say he motivated me towards to a great education. My nose is still in book.

Where do you find your treasure?

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love,

Ed

    I love to read too. Reading is one of the best coping mechanisms in dealing with stress and turmoil. It’s a healthy respite/escape. It has saved me many times from pure crippling depression and hopelessness. God often speaks to me and teaches me thru this venue.

      It is amazing how much we have in common. The peaceful serenity of reading and listening to God as He whispers in our ear. We are so blessed.
