When I made that list this morning of books that had an impact, I forgot to include Anne Ortlund's 1977 book Disciplines of the Beautiful Woman. I always wanted to be organized and have a notebook and keep priorities straight like Anne. Well, I do at least have a notebook.
And then when I went to look her up online (thinking to add a P.S. to my earlier post), I found out that Anne passed away in November. I'm not on the right lists, I don't read the right websites; I tend to miss these things.
Or is it just that our modern saints seem to pass away so quietly these days that nobody notices?
