"Frequently we pray that God would not forsake us in the hour of trial and temptation, but we too much forget that we have need to use this prayer at all times. There is no moment of our life, however holy, in which we can do without His constant upholding. Whether in light or in darkness, in communion or in temptation, we alike need the prayer, 'Forsake me not, O Lord.' 'Hold Thou me up, and I shall be safe.'"

- Charles Spurgeon, Morning and Evening devotions
Book Lists: Forgotten and Dystopian

For your reading pleasure (or possible displeasure):

10 Great Forgotten Books, such as The Castle of Otranto and the "unnecessarily tedious" Ravenshoe. (via Relief Journal)

15 Works of Dystopian Fiction Everyone Should Read, such as Invitation to a Beheading and The Stars, My Destination.

In other news, a sequel, “It’s A Wonderful Life: The Rest of the Story,” is in the works. The story shows Karolyn Grimes, who played Zuzu from the original movie, is an angel who visits George Bailey's irritable cuss of a grandson, named George Bailey, to show him how much better the world would be without him. Grimes says she has seen many scripts for Wonderful Life sequels, and this one actually brings the juice. (via S. Greydanus)
