The first book I can remember.
I must have made my mother read this book to me a million times. Written by Betty Ren Wright and published in 1954. (oops now you know I am a Boomer : )
Basically, the little horse was a bit of a nuisance. The farm animals dared him to jump over a stream. He fell in the middle of it, but Jim Jump didn't mind at all and told them he'd try it again.
I can relate to that.
My point - as an author, you never know how far reaching your words can be. How you can touch the lives of your readers in ways you never dreamed.
God, Creator of the Universe, took the time to write His Word so that we could connect with Him. To know Him, and learn how to live this life He gave us and prepare for eternity with Him.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God. Jesus, the Word of God in the flesh. - How amazing is that!
The written word is powerful and should be handled with care.
So scribes, you who have been given the gift of writing the stories, do you take into consideration your readers while writing? Are your words crafted to leave the reader something to take with them? To end the book with a greater hope in their heart?
