My daughter loves to draw. She scribbles on sheets of paper and tries to draw whatever I draw. I have to admit that she has a knack for drawing; a real talent. Apart from drawing, she loves to write little notes, her little love letters for family and friends. Today she made me a card which said... "Merry Christmas Mama. I love you." Apparently I wasn't to look at the card just yet. (Grins). She didn't warn me early enough not to open the card. So I just have to close it and keep it for Christmas.
As a writer, I can connect with the need to have writing instruments. During my earlier days it used to be the pens and pencils, but now its the e-world with the use of computers. Nonetheless, I cannot control my urge to write. Most often we take this for granted; the availability of writing tools. Just imagine, how would I have been able to write, considering I write a lot.
Today I take the time to thank the Lord for giving me avenues of expression and for the many kinds of writing instruments readily available for my use. I am grateful that these instruments have helped me along my years of studies, personal development and to build up my talent for writing. I also thank God for all that I have been able to write using these tools, to better myself, interact with people, and also be a means of moral support to others. May I be used as such writing instruments to tell the story of God's love and salvation.
