Bookshops vary in shape and size. Yet they must be organized well in order for the customers to receive great service. Hence, part of the organization of a bookshop involves square-foot space and intended activities.
Visiting and working in a bookshop can be a great experience. You can discover new topics of interest, find some classics, and sit down to read a book or two as you sip on a cup of tea or coffee. However, much of your experience will be dependent on the organization system that is used at the bookshop.
Books are a great source for learning, escaping, and expressing oneself. They range from academia, fantasy, as well as biographies. People of all walks enjoy reading and writing books. With such a great range of books, what should I sell?
Where there are readers, there is atleast one bookshop in the area. From that one bookshop, other bookshops may arise. However, are all bookshops the same? Do they all service the same population? Perhaps they don't, so why not complement them by providing services they don't?
There is something special in God's Word. There is something special about how it draws you in. There is something special in God's Word and how it leads a person to Christ Jesus.
Its a new start. I am updating my website theme to be more suitable for the content I post. I am also working on consolidating my posts into one blog: Write It (Integration of My God Encounters and Side-Tracked as well as Bookshop Keeper). I am aiming at no longer using the archive widget but to only use the categories for topical searches of my posts. I am also looking into pre-2010 post-files and examining them to re-post them in Write It. It is my hope to be caught up by the start of the summer; only time will tell.
Resurrection Sunday has begun in accordance with Jewish standards. Yet few people realize the fullness of this day. This is the day that YHWH put on the calendar of mankind as their Day of Redemption. Before the Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) made Himself known in the days of the New Testament, there was only purification and sanctification through water and obedience to YHWH's declared laws. Furthermore, people still had to make a special sacrifice offering of redemption once a year to atone for their sins.
When the Easter season begins in the U.S., there are both religious and spiritual elements present from both Judaism and Christianity. I say Christianity because its foundations lay in Judaism and the institution set forth by Yeshua (Jesus); the Church (universal Body of Christ). Furthermore, with this season, we also have the Judaic festivals of Purim, Unleavened Bread, and Passover. In addition, there are several important days for Christianity: Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Easter (Resurrection) Sunday; all of which give object reference to the person of Yeshua as the Messiah. Although this selection is not in a formal academic format, much research has been done through established Jewish and Christian organizations, books, and articles.
For many years, I have read through the passage of Jesus at a wedding in Canaan, (John 2:1-11). I saw many elements within it, yet never the simplicity of a tremendous message of things to come through fulfillment of a new covenant and work of Jesus. It was far beyond the scope of my vision for many years.
In Luke 10, Seventy disciples were appointed by Jesus and ministered in groups of two at places He would soon visit. They accomplished great things by the authority Jesus had bestowed upon them. Yet, when they came back to Him rejoicing over these things, Jesus redirected their rejoicing to having their names "written in heaven." (v.20)
In our present society, too many times, people who do great and mighty things are placed on pedestals; even in Christian circles. It is a dangerous place to be and can lead to a fall that can break people. Though it goes against the flow of the current of our present society, we need to remember to remain low and humble at heart as we serve others; by the authority of Jesus. It will help us to keep our names "written in heaven".
