My children both enjoy writing. Writing for school assignments is one thing. They do it and do it well. But writing on their own, from their heart produces a completely different style and finished product.
I quite often find one or the other huddle in some corner writing in a journal. When I call them to history (science, math...) they are certain to ask for five more minutes to finish their thoughts. How can I refuse? This is NOT time wasted. Most often the writing they are doing (from what I have been allowed to see) has been praise to our Father!
This writing I do not ask to see. I do not correct for spelling or grammar. I do not comment upon. And since I do not ask I am often given the privilege of a tiny glimpse of what they have written.
That is how the previous post came to be on the blog. I didn't ask or suggest. Sarah, for some reason known only to her, wanted to share. And for that I am most blessed.
