A Comfortable Place — 14 Comments

    • Hi Ginger,
      Glad to meet you. Jan Karon’s Mitford books pull me into a world of warmth, love, and the reality of lived out faith in God by a humble servant. They are definitely a good place to be.
      Thank you for stopping by!

  1. I have not read any of Karon’s books, but I have read great reviews of them! There is something about small-town living that appeals – I get a taste of that up here on the mountain, and it is refreshing.

    Last year I didn’t keep up with my daily Bible reading and devotionals. And it made a difference. This year I’ve re-dedicated myself to this discipline, and I notice that though the storms and suffering still come, I am much more anchored to the One Who Walks On Water!


    (P.S. Just posted Monday something about Marty if you get a chance to visit!)

  2. Sharon! It is wonderful to see you here! Thank you for sharing what a difference daily Bible readings and devotionals have made in your life. I pray the storms will settle down.
    Of course I will hop over and read about my second favorite dog, Marty!
    Blessings and love,

  3. Janis,
    Beautiful post – we need to keep a distance from anything that is not glorifying God. I loved the Jan Karon books and will certainly remember to read this one. Hopefully our church library orders it.

    • Hi Janis,
      Sorry this reply has been long in the making. Thank you for stopping by and reminding us to read only those things that are glorifying to God.

  4. I couldn’t agree with you more. You are the second gal to speak so highly of this Karon book. I clicked on your first tweet; I’m seeing a lot of this and have to learn how to do this. Very effective I think. We do become what we read and I always am blessed at your website.

    • Mary,
      Thank you so much for your kind words! It’s always a pleasure to have you visit.
      I know you will enjoy Jan Karon’s books from the beginning of her Mitford series through to the present one, “Somewhere Safe with Somebody Good.” It just enlivens the spirit.
      Enjoy, my friend.

    • Lori,
      It’s good to see you here. I’ve missed you my friend since Internet Cafe changed their format. But I read your posts whenever I get a chance, and I am always blessed!

    • Dolly,
      How fun that you just picked up this book as well! I know you will enjoy it.

  5. Janis, Your post is timely. I have found that in my new venue of life in the country where snow slows down the world a bit. Snuggling up with my Kindle is a fun thing to do. I have chosen several fun and encouraging books too. However this past week I had picked a set of novels about the old west. Unfortunately I found myself reading something not so pure. I discarded the book with a reminder to select more wisely next time. I then chose a tried and true author. Thanks for the update I will add and probably re-read the Karon series again.

    • Julie,
      Sorry it took so long to reply to you. I’m glad to hear that the Holy Spirit led you in your selection of books.
      This new one by Jan Karon is inspirational and uplifting as it draws us closer to the kind of relationship we need to have with the Lord.
      Miss you my friend,
