I just finished reading Dan Simmons’ Drood. I’ve enjoyed his other works more, but what do I know about well-written books? I’m not a writer. I would recommend Drood to others who enjoy reading historical fiction about an opium-addicted man being driven to insanity.
I may not know how to create masterpieces like Charles Dickens or Dan Simmons, but I know that God creates unique souls. If I am unique, then doesn’t that qualify me as a masterpiece of God? And since I have the free will to participate in God’s plan for me, then am I not a co-author in God’s masterpiece that is my life?
Reading Drood was a nice escape from reality. But my journey to love God fully is a long one. There are a lot of things that I think God wants me to do, and I’m procrastinating.
