I have been busy and slacking on any blog posting lately. I am not currently reading any Lewis, so I decided to find a letter Lewis wrote on This Day In History.
Dear Mrs. Balke
Thank you for your most kind and encouraging letter. I have noticed that particular books turn up in people's lives when they are most needed: and [at] that privileged moment even a very inferior book may 'do the trick'!
You are obviously very happy and much to be congratulated at present. But don't count on its lasting like that. In the Pilgrim's Progress 'the plain called Ease' lasted for only a short bit of the journey. So when you get into rougher or duller country again, you mustn't think this proves that your conversion was all imagination.
With very good wishes.
