લેખક: હેક્ટર ગાર્સીયા & ફ્રાન્સેસ્ક મિરાલેસ, ભાવાનુવાદ: ચિરાગ ઠક્કર 'જય'
તંદુરસ્તી પર ઘણા પુસ્તકો લખાયા છે પરંતુ 'ઇકિગાઇ' એ થોડું અલગ પુસ્તક છે. બધા પુસ્તકોમાં સામાન્ય રીતે હેલ્થ માટે આમ કરવું તેમ કરવું એવી સલાહ આપવામાં આવતી હોય છે, પરંતુ ઇકિગાઇમાં તંદુરસ્તી સારી કેવી રીતે રહે, આયુષ્ય સો વર્ષનું કેવી રીતે કરી શકા,? એનું રહસ્ય સમજાવવામાં આવ્યા છે.

It‘s time for some #WeeklyWrapUp #BookTalk for the #BibleBuddyRead!

This past week we read Numbers 27-36, and the latter half of the week we spent in the Gospel of Mark 1-16.

What was your favorite (or most memorable) verse that you read this week?

quirkyreader For this weeks readings the verse that stands out the Most is Mark 1:10. 5mo
BookBabe There are two verses in Mark that stand out to me the most. One was based on a question I‘d had in my own mind… Mark 12:25 “When the dead rise, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.” 5mo

BookBabe The verse that stands out to me most of all is Mark 12:29-31:
"Which command is the most important of all?"
29 Jesus answered,
"The most important is Listen, Israel! The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.
31 The second is, Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other command greater than these."

BookBabe 👆🏻👆🏻 That is BIG!!! Soooo important. Anyone else find that second one hard to achieve?? 😬 5mo
BookBabe @quirkyreader “Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.”
‭‭Mark‬ ‭1:10‬ ‭NIV‬‬ 😃👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Yes!!! That‘s a great verse! That jumped out at me too when I read it. ❤️ 🕊
5mo
Butterfinger Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. 5mo
BookBabe @Butterfinger Yes! Excellent verse! 🙌🏻 5mo
cwarnier I am just starting to read Mark, yes I know I am behind. I always find it interesting how the little details seem to float away, and it is just the meat if what needs to be said in the book of Mark. 5mo
BookBabe @cwarnier Yes, I noticed that too about the meat 🥩 😄 Don‘t worry, most of us get behind at some point. Life happens. The Lord sees your efforts to make time for Him and His Word, that‘s what‘s important. ❤️ 5mo

SPOILERS FOR DISCUSSION! Just finished Picture of Dorian Grey for the first time and I‘m intrigued by the ending. Generally online I found the idea that when Dorian Grey stabs the portrait he absorbs all the fates of the image including the knife to the heart leaving the picture in tact.

I‘m wondering how many of you have other interpretations or thoughts?

My thoughts in comments. #booktalk

Also counting this for #teamslaughter @Clwojick

ConfessionofaBookaholic Personally I‘m wondering about the idea that they switched places and Dorian Grey is left trapped inside the painting… (edited) 10mo

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: Does the snow or the rain get you to read more? #BookTalk

wordslinger42 Both. I don't discriminate 😅 1y
Lynnsoprano If I saw snow I‘d be out in it😂 I haven‘t lived where there‘s snow since 1976! 1y

Copwithabook The snow had me isolated at home alone so I ended up reading more 1y
DGRachel Usually the opposite-storm systems, whether they bring rain or snow, are typically migraine triggers for me, so I end up unable to read due to pain and other symptoms. 😔 1y
Aims42 I always think they should, but I sometimes just end up staring out the window watching the snow or rain with my book closed on my lap 😂 1y
DogMomIrene Living in AZ, the summer sun gets me to read more😅🤣 1y
AmyG Absolutely. We usually get alot if snow where I live...so I just stay in and read. 1y
Lizpixie I love curling up with a book & blanket when it‘s bucketing down outside. Unfortunately we don‘t get snow here😢 but I‘m sure if we did, I‘d be in front of a fire reading to that too❄️ 1y
SaunteringVaguelyDownwards The snow always gets me in a reading mood! 1y
Kappadeemom I live in Florida, when it rains, it‘s a great day to read! 1y
FlowerFairy Rainy days in Florida are the absolute best for reading. If it snows here, I‘m moving somewhere more tropical. 🤣 1y

Time for the bookish discussion question of the day 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! Here it is: Is there a story inside you that yearns to be written down and shared with the world?! 🙂 #BookTalk

quirkyreader I already let it out and it was published in 2000. 1y
jb72 Yes there is. Hopefully I‘ll finish it this year. 1y
KathyWheeler Nope. There‘s one in my husband though, and I‘m trying to encourage him to let it out. At 66, he thinks he‘s too old. I don‘t understand that; he‘s got nothing to lose and plenty of time since he‘s retired. 1y

Lizpixie There‘s a few actually. I have very lucid dreams and there‘s a few I‘ve written down as soon as I woke up, the bones of the story are sitting there waiting for me! 1y
BookishRedhead A few, I start but never finish 1y
Lynnsoprano Several in my head, maybe some day I‘ll try transferring one to paper. 1y
wordslinger42 So many! Another soon to be published in spring! 1y
