The challenge for Day 14 is to share what you collect and why. I’m not much of a collector–at least not in the knick-knack kind of way. But there are two things I do collect.
I am a passionate collector of books. Now, I don’t mean I’m a high-brow, rare first edition type of collector. Although that would be great, and I do have some pretty old books. But I love reading, and so I am constantly buying books–hardbacks, paperbacks, e-versions–doesn’t matter. I can never have too many books.
I also collect nativity sets from around the world. I love how unique they are and how they are such a beautiful visual expression of a culture and a people’s understanding of God. Unfortunately I didn’t start collecting them until after I had already traveled to about 13 countries. That was really unfortunate timing. So, although I don’t have a ton of nativities from other countries, I’m always looking to add to my collection.
What about you? What do you collect?
